I love my husband culture and their food. I like the pulled pork with cabbage plate. the macaroni salad is to die for, so always get two scoops.

L&L food is good for take out, but when trying to grab a quick bite at one of the few tables, you are overwhelmed by the 2 TV's. First, they don't need them. This place isn't big enough where they should encourage people to plant...themselves. More importantly, it is very unappetizing to try and enjoy a meal with the news blasting. I asked them to change it when the broadcast started talking about the plane that blew up on its way back to Russia. Absolutely inappropriate. Come on...if you need TV's then play videos of Hawaii or something pleasant.More

We've been to many L & L but, this one tops the list for the WORST place we've eaten. First, outside menu showed Lau Lau combo plate, which they no longer offer...BIGGEST DISAPPOINTMENT right off the start. Inside, decor was terrible. Seemed unkept and bit...on the dirty side. VERY tiny place for a walk in restaurant. We're guessing that the price was right for San Diego areas? Bit on the higher side for us. Food was o.k and mount was acceptable. Yet, very disappointed for L & L.More
