In case you were wondering, you read that right: it’s Hawaiian, and it’s barbeque. And, it is delicious! Eddie Flores Jr., one of the two founders of L & L Hawaiian Barbeque, came up with the term to describe the fusion of a traditional American dish, barbeque, with the unique Hawaiian flavors from America’s favorite vacation state. L & L became a franchise in 1988 when they expanded their one location all over Hawaii and in 1999, to the delight of those who already knew about Hawaiian barbeque, they expanded onto the mainland. One of the things that set L &L Hawaiian Barbeque apart from other restaurants, beyond their neat fusion of foods, is what you get for your money. Eddie and Johnson (the other founder) serve up traditional Hawaiian plate lunches, which include a serving of macaroni salad, a really big serving of the desired entrée and two servings of rice in addition to a drink. There’s a mini version—that IS a lot to eat—and there’s also burgers, a fun noodle bowl, and so much more! L & L may not be good if you don’t like barbeque or Hawaiian, but if you don’t know how you feel about the combo and you do like delicious, give them a go! You probably won’t be disappointed.
