There are more than two dozen of these establishments around the islands, in addition to many imitators sporting subtle changes to the name like P & L, L & R, and B & L Drive-Inns. However, they say imitation is the most sincere form of flattery, and it indeed pays to be on the lookout for the original L & L Drive-Inns as they are home to some great no frills inexpensive Hawaiian cuisine. L & L Drive-Inn focuses on Hawaiian plate lunches; a hearty serving of meat(s) complemented by a vegetable or two, some rice, and some macaroni salad. The meals themselves are at least two pounds worth of food, and are very much inexpensive and quick. Stop in at least once and get a taste of the ever popular Hawaiian food staple: the plate lunch.
