We discovered L&L in Hawaii and have made a point of eating a meal wherever we encounter one. Not fancy by any means, all of their restaurants literally feel tacky, but the food is tasty, the portions huge, and this is food that REAL Hawaiians eat. You will understand why with your first bite. They offer some true Hawaiian favorites but it you are not that adventurous stick with the barbecued chicken. Huge portions, one regular "lunch plate" will easily feed two. Don't be put off by the kitschy appearance of the place, the food is great. We always take our food to go but a few tables are available if you choose to eat there.

A great little restaurant we stumbled on. My sister-in-law lived in Hawaii for a decade and was gleeful that she could get Hawaiian food in San Diego. It was delicious with decent portions and great food. Fast food Hawaiian style... nothing quite like it!

The servings were generous and the owner was friendly. No issues with kids being a little bit noisy.
