Really glad we remembered it, WHAT A VIEW, ocean 30 feet away! We had the Coconut Shrimp, Small shrimp, but good portion and... More

This is the place!!! WOW it was tasty! The new York strip steak was very flavorful and tender. For some reason I figured it would be tough and bland but not the case! The grilled onions that accompanied the meal were nice and peppery. The shrimp were large and tender. The coconut flavor was evident. The ocean view along with... More

Got the medium spice garlic peel&eat shrimp & crab leg combo and it was delicious. The crab and shrimp were cooked perfectly and the level of spice was appropiately described by the staff. Washed it all down with a pineapple orange float, which is a mixture of natural juices with vanilla ice cream. Yum! Plan ahead there is no inside... More

We loved this place. And have since talked about it...I would eat at this truck all the time, if I could. The friendly service and tasty shrimp was so good! We had three different kinds of shrimp and don't remember any conversation when we were eating...it was that good! Please visit this food truck!

Had to stop here on our drive around the island. Had the best garlic and coconut shrimp on the whole trip. The Kona coffee drink was also a great treat to have. If you are looking for a feed on your drive around Oahu you must stop here.

Their coconut shrimp is really good, better than Fumi's down the road, and my husband liked the cod. Very friendly too!

The spicy garlic shrimp has lots of garlic and is recommended for garlic lovers. The spiciness is from Sriracha sauce so you can order "mild" and add more sauce for hotter taste. Garlic shrimp is $10.75 per meal (December 2014). The second best food is "Surf & Surf" which is half shrimp and half friend mahi mahi. 10% coupon is... More

When on the North Shore, you have to stop at the Shrimp Shack (actually a big yellow truck) and have a meal. Order at the truck and pay inside if using a DR or CR card. Bring back your receipt, grab a table and wait for the most delicious garlic shrimp served over rice to be brought to your table... More

Delicious with the guava dipping sauce. Even though they only had fried options, I liked these better than the other shrimp trucks on the North Shore
