L & L Hawaiian Barbecue Coming to Downtown Walnut Creek


1653 Mt. Diablo Blvd, Walnut Creek

Thanks to a reader for sending word that L & L Hawaiian Barbecue is coming to downtown Walnut Creek where Home of Chicken and Waffles and later Baygreens Salad used to be. Check out their menu here.

From their website:

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.

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.
