The portion sizes in Hawaii are quite big. I got the chicken and vegetable bowl here. The vegetables were cold and there was not a lot of sauce, but otherwise the meal was not terrible.

Thought the L&L in Hanelei, Kauai was bad, but the one in Waimanolo, Oahu was truly pathetic. The "healthy" garlic shrimp plate featured a bunch of garlic and salt-coated unpeeled and un-deveined small shrimp, overcooked rice, and salad with some packaged Kraft dressing. The "barbecue burger consisted of 3 2mm. slabs of tasteless burnt gristle soaked in shoyu on a... More

Note: Regular = enough for 2 people! We visited the one attached to Walmart (not far from Ala Moana). We had the chicken katsu which was delish. An affordable lunch to either eat there or take back to the hotel room. Comes with a bbq/soya saucey type sauce which really suits the dish!

Fun way to try an inexpensive Hawaiian styled fast food - plate lunches (called that even though the mini plate is more than enough for lunch and the large plate would be more than one person could eat at dinner). If someone was trying to stay within a tight food budget while on vacation - this would be an excellent... More

We visited the location in Laie, which wasn't listed on this website. It's located in a strip mall next to Foodland. Great plate lunches and wonderful fish. A great way to enjoy local food on a budget in a very casual atmosphere.

We stopped here on the way to Lanekai beach. Trip Advisor didn't suggest we should expect much but we were surprised! Especially since this is a chain. Food - Impressively tasty. The breaded chicken was crispy and tasty. Rib steaks and chicken were also good. Service - Basic for a take-out type joint. Atmosphere - Not much for the senses.

I had the eggs with Portuguese sausage and rice. It was good breakfast before I went to the beach. The lady was nice and it was very affordable. Always go there when we go to waimanalo beach . It's our ritual.

Just OK food and bad attitude from the cashier lady, we order 4 different plates and everything was just OK. Not the best option.

Don't miss this Island BBQ joint! Great food at a great price. Our group of 10 was served faster than I thought possible. A wide array of entrees were all excellent. Much better than would be expected from a drive-in type diner. Almost all entrees are large enough to share. No one in our group ate an entire full sized... More

Was really looking forward to "Hawaiian barbecue". Although the mix bbq plate we ordered was quickly prepared, it was quite oily and greasy. Kind of disappointed. Maybe I should have ordered something else?
