This spot is a great if you are in Hanalei and want some good, cheap food. My wife and I both got burgers, I went with the BBQ hamburger and it was really good. It cost around 15 dollars for the both of us and it was filling. There is free parking all around the area and is next to... More

I've eaten at L&L Barbecue several times in Kauai. I love their Kalua Pork with cabbage. Service is never fast, but who needs speed on vacation in Kauai?

Came here for a cheap dinner as we couldn't work out where to go for dinner as it was quite late. I had the chicken katsu mini which was a decent portion for me and I couldn't finish it all and my partner had the combination plate with teriyaki steak. He seemed pretty satisfied with it. We had enough leftover... More

We were looking for some place to eat inexpensively and were satisfied with the burgers here. Decent price for the burgers, which is what we wanted, ranging from a little over $2 to $4 depending on what was on the burger

We have L & L back home, so I knew I was going to get fish fried to the point of boredome. They were crazy busy with all the tourists and kost of us didn't realize there were more restaurants behind the L & L. I ordered the smaller mahi mahi meal. The fish tastes like oil. No other flavor.... More

We had a bunch of different grilled meats and some prawns. It was a ton of food for the money. Nothing really special but a good value imo.

We had been told by one of our tour guides during mountain tubing to try the Loco Moco. I figured, when in Rome… So I ordered it at the L&L and loved it. I can only review that dish because that is all I ordered – Three nights in a row :) Its rice, a hamburger patty, fried egg, and... More

Had the seafood platter & fries. It was just plain fried, and the batter wasn't very tasty. Cheap, but not the best food. Maybe it's our fault for not ordering the right thing, but we're in Hawaii, ordering seafood should an above average experience.

BBQ chicken was OK. Burger was not good at all. Would recommend going somewhere else. Wait was also quite long.
