Great grinds! Get you a plate (cash only)

Simple. Yet nice variety of shrimp served with rice and a salad. They offer coconut fried shrimp, butter garlic sauté, regular, spicy sauté, and lemon pepper. Best we have had on island thus far. Will be going back again. Bring cash.

This is one of my favorite shrimp trucks on the island. Such a plentiful serving of rice and shrimp, it really is absolutely delicious and the flavor is amazing. The added slice of pineapple helps at the end of the meal! We always found ourselves gravitating to Macky's for lunch or dinner. I can't wait to come back.

Had a fantastic lunch at Macky's on the recommendation from a friend. We ordered the number 2 and it came with the shrimp, rice and a small salad. Very nice lunch. After eating we drove around a bit and on the way back passed Macky's and it was jammed! Can't wait to go back.

Was apparently hoping for too much... Service was a solid 5, the food was nothing to brag about. I could've had better at Subway. At least for this truck the experience didn't live up to its reputation.

We ate here several times during our visit to Oahu. Delicious, plump and juicy shrimp prepared in a variety of ways brought us back for more. Plates include rice and salad. A good value at about $13 / plate (cash only). We didn't get to try the coconut shrimp; they were sold out for days. If you have the chance... More

Highly recommended. After a day of visiting the North Shore, we searched for this shrimp truck at the behest of an employee working at our vacation resort. We were not disappointed! The spicy shrimp plate was delicious! I wish I had enough room in my stomach to eat two of these shrimp plates. The best $13 ever spent on a... More

So many shrimp food trucks to choose from. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to try the other shrimp trucks to be able to compare the food, but my shrimp from Macky's did not disappoint. The staff could have been a bit friendlier as they denied my request for extra sauce on top of my rice :(

Really good taste but overcooked shrimp. My wife had the garlic; I had the lemon pepper. Both were, unfortunately, pre-prepared and boxed when we walked up to the window to order. Great taste but cooked too much. I'll give them another shot when there but won't accept pre-cooked/boxed. Use the $2 off coupon from the Oahu brochure.

We ate at Macky's on our way from the Dole Plantation to the beaches of the North Shore. The food was good. It is parked next to a 7-11 store. Macky's has plenty of shaded tables. The garlic shrimp was very good!
