The Hawaiian 'plate lunch' typically includes a meat, 2 scoops of rice and a scoop of Mac salad. The Mac salad here is very good, as is the Hawaiian BBQ chicken. L and L Drive In has been around for a long time and is favorite of the locals, with several locations on Oahu. Put this on your list of... More

For visitors to the islands, you may not be aware of this local favorite. Great value for your money, large selections of food and multiple options for how you want your meal. This was always a family favorite so when we returned....gotta stop in! Highly recommended for visitors.

I asked my fiance to take me to a hawaiian fast food and he took me here. The foods are good and very affordable. The portions are great too, I couldn't finish my chicken katsu. This is good place for cheap quick meals.

We were looking for a place to have a quick bite for lunch and a search turned up L&L. Boy were we pleasantly surprised. This is a little "hole" in the wall that serves up tasty meals. We shared the combo lunch plate and it was more than enough. Beef,pork,sliced steak,rice and some Korean kimchi. All prepared quite well.

Never had a bad meal at any location. My wife had lau lau and I had the chicken. As always the Mac salad is fantastic and portions are huge. Yea, it's fast food but I'll go there first before anywhere else.

We dined at several L & L restaurants. The meat melted in our mouths every time. The marinades they used were very "moorish" and the meals were very affordable. Service in each was quick.

The food is very good quality and the lunches are huge. You can get a full meal for $8. The service is fast and they are really respectable.

L&L is a chain of restaurants originally from Hawaii - I've been to the one in Renton (Seattle) many times, and the ones in Oahu are the same. The portions are very large - one plate lunch dish runs about 11$ and is enough to feed two people. The food is greasy, but super tasty! If you want a typical... More
