This is a chain of restaurants on the Big Island and the other islands but they also have some in California. I was not aware of that but now that I am I will visit one here. Checking the internet they have several locations in Nevada and in other parts of the country. The food is very good and the... More

I experienced this particular L & L Hawaiian Barbeque several years ago. I loved it then, better than any other L & L I have eaten at since then. Maybe this one was exceptionally good because I had never been to one before. It now tastes more like the others which has dropped it in my rating. The mac salad... More

We stopped in here one late night when we couldn’t find much open. From the descriptions on the web, we expected something different. We weren't looking for fancy, but this was more like a fast food joint in a strip mall. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mean it was bad. The food was good and the portions were large.... More

L & L seem to be everywhere on the Big Island of Hawaii. The food is really pretty good and you get lots of it. The price is pretty reasonable for this very pricey location. They have a big selection and you can try just about anything they have and feel confident it will be good!

We were surprised at the huge and tasty portions. Loved the loco moco and the shrimp dish (can't remember the name). The Hawaiian styled BBQ pork..... YUM!

We stopped in for dinner, and had really terrific plate lunch dinner. This is a very casual take-out place in the shopping center near our hotel. They also have indoor seating. The portions are large, typically a meat, potato mac salad, and rice. We took what we couldn't eat back to the hotel and had a couple of meals from... More

the food here is amazing for the money.... the quality is up there with any take-out food I have ever had... its not fine-dining... but you are not paying for that. The food is very very good and you can depend on this and you may notice the locals agree... RECOMMENDED !!! HIGHLY !!!

Good selection of food at a decent price but just average. Not a bad mid day stop. Recommend the shrimp dishes.

We have tried L & L Hawaiian Barbeque several times before when traveling to Hawaii. This restaurant is always a favorite of ours. Many times we grab plate lunches to go and take them to a local park or beach. There is a large variety to choose from. Some of our favorites are Lau Lau and Kalua Pork and Cabbage... More
