Tasty Shrimp

We wanted to try a shrimp truck and were lucky to find Geste. The shrimp is served with rice and macaroni salad for $13. You also have a choice of how your shrimp is prepared. Only downside is finding a place to sit and eat.

You've gotta go there for a "local" experience. This is just what it says it is ; a shrimp truck on the side of the highway next to the bay. The food is tasty, plenteous, and inexpensively priced. We had 12 shrimp with rice, some yummy sauce, and a soda for under $15.00. It was enough to share for an... More

We had lunch before heading to the airport. It was fast and a full order. We had the shrimp scampi and enjoyed the entire meal. Came with mac and rice sides. Cold pop and water was also available. We drove into the boat launch parking lot located next to it and ate at the picnic tables located there. Small boats... More

It's worth finding this shrimp truck!!! We flew into Maui at 6pm local time so we stayed in Kahului the first night. Checked in then headed over to the harbor to find it. Wow! For $14 got the lemon pepper shrimp and it was a little bit spicy and awesome! What a deal with rice and macaroni salad. Yummy. Going... More

Read about Geste Shrimp Truck and had to try for ourselves. Lots of other people had the same idea. Some eating in their cars, others on the grass. We both ordered the Spicey Hawiian shrimp. Comes with rice, mac/potatoe salad. Lots of chunks of pineapple too. I asked for mine not too spicey and they were happy to oblige. I... More

The Geste Shrimp Truck is tucked in with several food trucks on Kahului Beach Road. Nothing to look at, no tables or facilities, nothing but fantastic food. We picked up an order of Lemon Pepper and one of Spicy Pinapple. Both great taste experiences. 12 peel and eat shrimp served on Cabbage, with rice and Crab Macaroni Salad. The shrimp... More

Ok let me start by saying I don't buy fish/ shrimp off the back of a truck.....but this place was the exception! I was very wary about eating shrimp off a truck but after I read the reviews I tried it. This is peel and eat shrimp, the skin and tail is on the shrimp. But This was the best... More

I don't usually eat food out of the truck on vacation. But this place was awesome. It does look a little bit sketchy, but it was tasty and worth the trip over. Get the spicy pineapple, it has a little more kick than the Hawaiian.

For Food Trucks, this is as good as it gets. This Cash Only place, serves up some delicious food, hot and fresh. We shared the Combo plate, which is plenty enough food for 2 people, unless you are really hungry, then go for a plate yourself. For the Combo plate, we didn't realize that the hot dog, is actually a... More

The most flavorful shrimps I've had for a long time, certainly from a truck/stall by the roadside, but even better than many proper restaurants. The wait for your order whets the appetite with the tickling smell from the cooking. There are picnic tables by the Hale Kiawe fishing club around the corner, with views of the harbor. With such skills,... More
