“Great Place for Breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2013

A small shopping center restaurant in a small shopping center in the Kona-Kailua area of Hawaii would usually not be expected to be a great place for anything, but the food is actually quite good at the small, unpretentious counter-service type place. In fact, after many trips to the big island, I believe that this is by far the best place for breakfast on the island, and is also a wonderful choice for lunch. Aside from all the usual breakfast staples, many interesting Asian choices and local Hawaiian choices are available, and all come out hot and delicious. There is no atmosphere here, but the food quality, quantity and taste make that lack unimportant. It's also the least expensive place around. All in all, a wonderful choice for quick casual eating.

“Select Carefully and Enjoy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 9, 2013

The L & L BBQ has some healthy choices along with traditional meals. It is very affordable.
The portions are large and tasty. There is a wide variety of food choices. It is self serve. The food was made fresh and came quickly. Choose what you like carefully. I chose the healthy choice plate which was a delicious salad, brown rice and garlic shrimp. My husband chose the pork combo. We were both satisfied with our choices. Two people eat for under $20.

“Stuff your face good”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2013

Got three combos to go --kalbi ribs, shrimp, and barbeque chicken to take to the beach. Thought this would be enough for four. It was enough for six. Each came with good sized entre' and LOTS of mac salad and sticky rice . The perfect plate lunch. Inexpensive, quick and yummy; what's not to like?

“Way Better Than Calif Style!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

Stopped for lunch while out shopping for souvenirs in April 2013. At first glace, it looked like hole-in-the-wall with very limited inside seating. But the food quickly changed that opinion!
We ordered the lunch special of roasted pork and barbeque chicken. The pork came in a brown gravy with an fried egg on top. An egg? Yes, an egg and it went great with the pork meat and gravy. The plate was delicious and one of the best meals we had on the Big Island.
Yeah, we did the fancy places too but for the taste and price this came in 3rd on our favorite scale. (1st place was someone's home with KTA Superstores taking 2nd and the fancy expensive places were just okay.)
Don't let the looks throw you. We highly recommend this place to anyone wanting local food. I just wonder if I can ask for an egg here in Calif?

“More, I want more”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 29, 2013

Never get enough of L&L. Love the freshness and always hot. No complaints here. A great menu and so many choices. I highly recommend this place to anyone that is hungry or even just for a lighter lunch. They have 2 plate sizes, so just right for everyone.
