I was taken back when I realize the restaurant my sister was raving about was a truck with chickens walking around by your feet!! However, the good was delicious and not expensive like everything else on the island is. I had shrimp and rice!! If you have a problem with chickens walking around your feet or washing your hands in... More

I ordered a lobster tail + shrimp combo, which was delicious. The only down side was the wait... I didn't expect to have to wait 30 minutes for food from a truck, but in all fairness the person in front of me had placed an order for 10 people or so. Highly recommend it!

We were in HI last October and went to Macky's twice during our stay at the North Shore. We were quite hungry so we ordered 2 plates of butter garlic shrimps and 1 plate of lemon pepper to share. The shrimps were super yummy the first time we were there, but a bit too cooked the second time, nonetheless still... More

This was by far the best garlic shrimp I have ever had! We drove all the way back to Macky's from Turtle Bay to have our last dinner of our vacation there. The food is just fantastic!

If you want to taste the islands, go to food trucks along the North Shore. This place was delicious. The place gets' packed with tour buses, but the shrimp was great! Worth the stop.

If you want to have fresh tasty shrimp without paying much, this is your space. They have wonderful shrimps. Try the sour one with lemon. You will not like any other food after this experience

I don't understand the positive reviews. Food was average and service was just rude. We ordered three plates, the original, spicy and garlic butter. Served on a paper plate, about six shrimps each, white rice and dried up lettuce. Each at $13 per plate. Way over price for what was served. And the lady was rude. We asked for paper... More

I always get the spicy or the garlic shrimp! To me they know how to get the flavor into the shrimp! The spicy isn't over powering and still flavorful, other places are spicy to where its either bitter or just too much to enjoy. This is top of my list to go every time we drive to this side of...

My mom and I have tried about every shrimp truck on north shore and Mackey's is by far the best. You get a small green salad, a nice portion of rice and a generous amount of shrimp. My favorite is the regular garlic and butter. The shrimp is nice sized, never overcooked and is so sweet and tender and the... More

My family and I were at North Shore for a beach day. I was out surfing and got really hungry really fast. My mom, my brother, my grandmother, and I were all hungry. So I checked on trip adviser and saw Mackys Truck. It was less than a mile away, so we stopped by. Everyone with me got the butter... More
