It takes more than a fire to keep a good plate lunch place down.

In September 2019, an accidental fire erupted at the Wahiawa L&L Hawaiian Barbecue. According to the Honolulu Fire Department, the restaurant sustained about $85,000 in damages.

However, by late January of this year the Wahiawa L&L was once again open for business, offering hungry diners a wide variety of beloved local favorites.

A perfect example would be the Kalua Pork with Cabbage ($9.85; prices vary by location). Smoke-flavored, succulent shredded pork is slowly roasted to a flavorful finish and mixed with cabbage.

Feeding a whole bunch of folks? L&L Hawaiian Barbecue offers catering services and can prepare a menu for virtually any event, from luaus and athletic competitions to corporate meetings and office luncheons. Delivery is also available at most locations.

Diners can opt for a customized buffet by selecting a la carte items that suits their needs. Or L&L can easily create individual bento boxes, pre-portioned and packaged for guests to simply grab and go. Either way, customers can choose from a variety of L&L signature items for any catered affair, including Teriyaki Chicken, Chicken Katsu, Teriyaki Beef, Hamburger Steak, Kalua Pork and Cabbage, Lau Lau, Fried Shrimp, Garlic Shrimp, Stir Fried Shrimp with Vegetables, Spam Musubi, White or Brown Rice, Macaroni Salad, Pineapple Fried Rice and Poke.

For those craving lighter fare, Garlic Shrimp ($11.05; prices vary by location) features shell-on shrimp prepared in a savory butter and garlic sauce, served with brown rice and a hefty helping of tossed green salad. It’s L&L’s take on the classic North Shore food truck
