Our Story

When Johnson Kam and Eddie Flores Jr. introduced L&L to the U.S. mainland, they knew that most Californians were unfamiliar with the plate lunch. So they repackaged it as L&L Hawaiian Barbecue. Plate lunch – also known as “the state food of Hawaii” – dates back to wage laborers in 19th century sugar plantations and pineapple fields, who brought rice and other leftovers to work in compartmentalized tins. Lunches were often shared, resulting in a harmonious mix of home recipes from Japan, China, the Philippines, Portugal, Korea, and even New England. Use your cursor to explore the ingredients above and watch your appetite build as you discover the delicious possibilities inherent in our uniquely delicious, contemporary Hawaiian Barbecue plate from Japan, China, the Philippines.

In the early years, L&L Hawaiian Barbecue was a successful chain of drive-in restaurants with a reputation for serving fresh plate lunches throughout the Hawaiian islands. In late 1999, our founders – Johnson Kam and Eddie Flores, Jr. – introduced their signature, Asian and American fusion take on the classic plate lunch to the residents of California. Since then, the concept has found fans around the world and there are close to 200 L&L Hawaiian Barbecue restaurants in Hawaii, California, Washington, Nevada, Arizona, Colorado, Oregon, Utah, Texas, New York, Tennessee, Guam and Japan. Needless to say, in addition to the fresh, culturally-commingling flavors of Hawaii, every L&L meal is infused with the warmth of aloha – the legendary spirit of welcome that makes every guest feel at home.

By far the most tasty food for your money can buy. All the dishes are yummy. I love the Mac salad side so much that I always order additional. Thank you L&L for some good food.


I can’t believe how delicious their Kalua pork is mmmmm it’s just like having soul food with the smoke sauce infused into every tasty bite. My kids really enjoy the rice with teriyaki sauce on it. Always made hot and fresh from a great staff.

Love this place. The staff is always so friendly, they listen, and the food is always consistently good. Great place for lunch with family, or friends. If your in a rush call ahead and order as they get very busy. Have been a customer for 3 years and it's my go to lunch spot.

We come here for lunch all the time. Almost don't have to give our order as the girls remember what we get. Very friendly staff, and huge portions. Even when it's busy and packed at lunch time, they are very good at getting your food ready quickly.
