Stopped by here to pick up some fast food to go. Has a pork bowl and BBQ chicken bowl. It was ready in less than 5 min. Rice was good but the rest wasn't very flavorful. You can eat inside or there are quite a few tables outdoors to eat. Decent option for something healthier than fast food but still... More

First off the food was excellent with a good selection of American and Hawaiian cuisine to choose from. We went at lunch time and the place got crowded, which also is telling that it's got good food. There were eight of us in our group ranging from a 6 year old to adults and they had food selection range for... More

We had the kalua pig and cabbage with a laulau. Great food, two sides of rice and mac salad. Great prices and fast service.

A short open air trolley ride (free to Kona Sheraton guests $2 for others) and we were at the Keauhou shopping center. We started at Longs Drugs for the best prices on Kona coffee and other gifts, window shopped, hit the KTA grocery store, and the the post office to mail our gift box. Done! Then we headed for L&L...

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!
