One of Hawaii’s most popular eateries, L&L Hawaiian Barbecue has been serving the islands since 1976. Now, this local restaurant is known across the U.S. for serving delicious plate lunches featuring the best local cuisine. Some of the most popular plates include the BBQ Mix (price varies), which features a combination of beef, chicken and short ribs; the bestselling Chicken Katsu (price varies) with boneless chicken and piquant katsu sauce; and the well-known Loco Moco (price varies) featuring hamburger patties topped with two fried eggs and brown gravy.

“My favorite part of being with L&L Hawaiian Barbecue is seeing how much L&L has grown to be a part of American cuisine and how people are starting to understand and enjoy it,” says director of marketing Brandon Dela Cruz.
