There are several around town. A new one is going into the old Sherri's Diner (previously Five and Diner) on Buffalo at W. Lake Mead Bl.

That could be taken two ways. Do you mean they are surprised it's good or surprised it's bad? Personally I think Hawaiian food is nearly as bad as Filipino, which is about the worst food I've ever eaten. But to each his own. There are a lot of Hawaiian restaurants around town now.

Ask most people what they think Hawaiian food is. Those who are completely unfamiliar are expecting lighter fare with a lot of seafood and the like. Then, they get the Hawaiian plate lunch which most would consider unhealthy.


From the L&L website:


The traditional Hawaiian plate lunch consists of two servings of rice, a serving of macaroni salad, and features a generous serving of a hot entrée. L&L Hawaiian Barbecue® plate lunches are famous for its large portion sizes, freshness, and unique blend of tastes found in dishes like Chicken katsu (breaded chicken w/special dipping sauce), “Loco Moco” (hamburger patties, two eggs, & gravy), and mahi mahi (w/tartar sauce). L&L Hawaiian Barbecue’s® plate lunches are also infused with an “ingredient” unique to the islands – the warm spirit of Aloha. Additionally, their satisfaction is accompanied by a pleasant revival of their memories and sentiment for the islands.


Personally, I have NEVER had a bad Hawaiian plate lunch. However, the average plate lunch is NOT how I generally want to eat on a daily basis.
