For a quick bite, in and out, it's not bad. Shrimp was good as well as the macaroni salad. Wouldn't recommend for a nice dinner, bite perfect for a plate lunch

Not great food. There are some items that aren't bad, but it's basically a fast food place, so don't expect too much and it will be fine. A plate lunch is something everyone should try while in Hawaii, and L&L's are easy to find... there's better out there, in fact some of the L&L's I've been to border on unacceptable.

L & L is a pretty good fast food meal but, unfortunately we live in a small town without an L & L Drive Inn. So it's always kind of fun to treat ourselves to the very good macaroni salad and ramen burger and plate lunch whenever we get the chance. It's not fancy but my guys think it's great!

L&L is a large chain offering Hawaiian Plate Lunches. Being a frequent visitor to the islands and sampling a wide variety of plate lunch places, I visited this L&L on Oahu's North Shore. The place looks like a real hole in the wall but locals were inside so I tried the Kalbi Short Ribs mini-plate lunch. Considering the $7.95 price,... More

I love plate lunches. We heard about the L&L chain and saw it here in Haleiwa and decided to try it. Lots of locals, so we thought it must be good. wow, so awful!!! STAY AWAY. Lots of other tourists like us, thought to come and try and I wish I could caution all of them. Meat was small portions... More

The wife wanted some Kalua pig and stopped in L&L while we were walking around Hale'iwa. I didn't order anything but tried hers. It was dry, tough and not really flavored like kalua pig but more like an over roasted pork shoulder. They may do some things right but here is what I have to say. You are a hawaiian... More

I mean, it's L&L...the food is what it is. Cash only. Rude and hard to understand staff. This wouldn't be a place I would go again.
