This location has become our go to for lunch and dinners. For $15-$20 we can get enough time food for lunch and dinner for 2 people. Great BBQ and many local items as well.

The food is delicious but their customer service is awful! They are very rude and act put out to even take our order. I've visited two on the Big Island and both times we were treated poorly. Not to mention, clean up your restaurant. It's very cluttered and dirty.

I ordered a seafood mix dish which included mahi mahi, shrimp and steak. It came with rice and macaroni salad. My fish and shrimp were good as was my steak which was well done. The steamed rice was also good but the macaroni salad had a bit too much mayonnaise for my liking. My wife had steak, rice and macaroni... More

I've been going to L&L for years, and every time, I try to order something different. And every single time, I have been pleased with the taste and quality of the food. This is a wonderful place to get cheap, local food. A must for anyone visiting Hawaii!

Can't beat L&L for quick tasty local food. A favorite of my family Staff not super engaging (so don't go there for conversation!), but they deliver great food which is very well priced .. which is what we want.

Good place on a budget. Try scrambled eggs and rice for breakfast. Didn't think I would like it but it is now a favorite.

Average food. Not the best surroundings. Front of house not clean at all, would hate to see what the kitchen looks like.

Great hot food, fast and cheap. If you are staying at any near by condos or hotels this is a great place to come for a quick meal. We are staying at the Na Hale O Keauhou condos. Seven of us eating heaping plates of rice, BBQ pork, BBQ chicken and ribs and taking several boxes home all for less... More
