A local drive inn treated the community on its birthday.
L&L Hawaiian Barbecue served 76-cent plate lunches for the eighth straight year. They distributed the meals from its Ke`eaumoku location in Wal-Mart.
“In 1976, I bought the first L&L for my mother and I gave her as a gift and we were selling plate lunches for 76-cents – now we’re doing it exactly the same,” L&L President and CEO Eddie Flores said.
Not only plate lunches were sold at a discounted price but customers were able to purchase Pepsi fountain drinks for 10-cents and the first 100 customers received L&L shirts. Over 1,800 plates were sold between 10 a.m. and noon with all the money going to Goodwill Industries of Hawai`i.
“We’re not going to make any money here,” Flores said. “Goodwill Industries is a fantastic cause and we’ve been doing that for over ten years already.”
