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.

Getting a meal at the L&L Hawaiian Barbecue and taking it to the beach for a picnic has become one of our family traditions, when in Hanalei. The price, the taste, the portions- no disappointed customers here! The food is always fresh and tasty. Enjoy!

This is a small place on the highway next to Jo Jo's Shave Ice. My wife and had dinner there. She had the garlic shrimp mixed plate and I had panko crusted mahi mahi. They were both very good with significant garlic (which we like) and large portions. Nothing fancy but a good value.
