“Last resort”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 1, 2014

Only ate here because we'd just landed and were desperate for food. Very mediocre - the vegetables were good, the meat not so much (shrimp were tough). Still, better than Subway and McDonalds, which were the other choices....

“Delicious Hawaiian BBQ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

We had the breaded pork chop with rice and mac salad, and the mahi-mahi, shrimp, and teriyaki chicken (seafood combo). Both were excellent and prices were great!

“not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

L & L Barbecue has low quality meat, would not recommend this. try 'chicken in a barrel' instead, or Tropical Taco.

“Looking for greasy fast food in paradise?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013 via mobile

This is the kind of food I go to Hawaii to avoid. Fast and fatty. I had the pork plate and though the preparation made me optimistic (it came wrapped in a banana leaf) the portion itself was quite small and the meat was very greasy. Plus the sides (white rice & a mayo based macaroni salad) were also drawn from the dark side of the food pyramid. And the place wasn't the cleanest. Overall, just not for me!
