I just went to a place called "Hawaiian BBQ" (not a very creative name) located on 711 Fair Oaks Ave, #D (across from Bristol farms, same plaza as El Pollo Loco) serving mix plate specials. I was too lazy to drive all the way up to L&L's on arroyo.
Not bad. In comparison with L&L's, same sweet pinapple katsu sauce (good), comparable mac salad (not as much mayo, slightly smaller serving, also good), 2 tiny scoops of rice (people who like rice will want to order more), katsu was good, not too flat. about the same price.
i liked this much more than ono grill and shakas.
they also have extensive meat and pork selections, seafood options and combo mixes, saimin noodles, burgers, salads, appetizers, musubi, wraps, and a family meal combo, $21 choice of 3 items and rice, mac salad and vegetable.
also catering plates.
their number is 626 799.3618 open 10 am to 9:30 pm mon through sat, closed sunday.
