Worth the wait!

Ordered the Hawaiian Scampi, Hot & Spicy and Lemon Pepper from the very nice lady. 20 minute wait and totally worth the wait. All three flavors were great and good sized shrimps. Probably one of the best meal, for sure best plate lunch we had during our vacation.

I'm writing this as a warning to anyone, who, like me, gets seriously grossed out when shrimp isn't cleaned free of the digestive tract. We ordered two of the Hawaiian Scampi and had to sit in the car cleaning each and every one of our shrimp free of the digestive tract of our meals. I gave up after about three... More

The smell was amazing but all their shrimp plates are made with soy sauce, even the scampi, and not gluten free friendly.

When in Maui, do some things the locals do: eat with your hands at this peel and eat shrimp truck. The truck is located on the side of the road with other similar eateries. This is the one. Fabulous shrimp options included pineapple, spicy, and scampi style. Be prepared to wait and bring towelettes.

In the category of "Roadside Food", this place deserves a five rating. Location is right by the water, service is excellent, and food is great. This is a travel trailer food place, so there are no seating arrangements. However, there are rocks right by the water, where one can sit down and dine in a picnic type scene with great... More

When we visited in August 2015, the truck had moved up the road closer to Wailuku.... Geste Shrimp is still offering various shrimp plates at a good price with great flavor. You will need to peel the shells off of the shrimp and your hands will get messy so be prepared and remember to grab a hand full of napkins.... More

We have visited Maui many times and this was our first trip to Geste. We got the spicy pineapple and Hawaiian scampi, both were great! Highly recommend this truck, easy stop when leaving the airport.
