I eat at this L&L location maybe a dozen times a year (usually when I'm working in the neighborhood). It's always been okay and certainly affordable. Today will probably be my last time. The establishment has clearly taken a dive! Trash from their dumpster and...More

Loved the pineapple inspired menu and dishes. Food was casual, tasty and much like you'd find on a Honolulu beach. Well worth a visit

I love this place for a quick meal or shaved ice. Today we just came for a quick snack because it was very hot. We ended up getting sa shaved ice and it was very good.

All the traditional Hawaiian Favorites. Who doesn't like a good LocoMoco? I get tired of the same old food everywhere I go. This is a great change.

standard L&L - very sparse inside. a bit too much sugar in the sauces. basically a lower than average hawaiian plate lunch spot. There is a much better Hawaiian Plate Lunch offering at the corner of Portola and 17th.

This is a great place for getting the Hawaiian BBQ. Food is reasonably priced and its good. The ambiance is very very casual, but its great to get it to go and then go eat on the beach a few blocks away!

Good food most of the time, I like the Teriyaki Chicken and Beef. Kind of an average looking place with not much ambiance, but I just go there to eat, so no matter. The portion are big, so you won't leave hungry.

I had never eaten here before so I wasn't sure what to expect. The food was really hot and great! You could tell it was made to order and not just sitting in a warming dish. I would definitely go back.
