We discovered L&L in Hawaii and have made a point of eating a meal wherever we encounter one. Not fancy by any means, all of their restaurants literally feel tacky, but the food is tasty, the portions huge, and this is food that REAL Hawaiians eat. You will understand why with your first bite. They offer some true Hawaiian favorites... More

A great little restaurant we stumbled on. My sister-in-law lived in Hawaii for a decade and was gleeful that she could get Hawaiian food in San Diego. It was delicious with decent portions and great food. Fast food Hawaiian style... nothing quite like it!

The servings were generous and the owner was friendly. No issues with kids being a little bit noisy.

My family is from Hawaii. The ribs, katsu and sticky rice...just like back home. (If you haven't tried the spam musubi, go for it. You might be like Mikey, and like it...)
