While visiting Oahu I heard that you must eat off a shrimp truck to get the full Hawaiian experience. So we looked into them and found that Macky's had great reviews and so we decided to give them a try. I wasn't expecting much since it is a truck but the food was delicious. You get to pick how you... More

As most know, there is no lack of shrimp trucks along the north windward coast of Oahu. We were day tripping to Haleiwa and decided to try Macky's based on TA reviews. We found it perfectly fine for a quick lunch. They offer 6 versions of shrimp for $13 a plate. Each plate comes with 2 scoops of rice, a... More

6 different styles of shrimp, each with a side of rice, a small green salad, and a slice of fresh pineapple! I had the coconut shrimp, my sister had the butter garlic, both were amazing! When we go there the line was huge but it moves fast. Great food!

Stopped at Mackey's during our Hawaii Five-0 Experience through Hawaiin Escapades. I was skeptical at first but the food was one of THE best meals I've EVER had! If you visit Oahu, you need to eat at Mackey's Shrimp Truck on the North Shore. I highly recommend it. I WILL be back!

During our stay in Oahu we essentially hopped from one food truck to the next and I can say Macky's had the best garlic shrimp. Delicious EASY TO PEEL shrimp, fluffy rice with the right amount of butter and garlic, and friendly staff made this my favorite stop. They even had cute chickens and their chicks scampering around under the... More

Macky's Shrimp Truck is located about 1/6 of a mile off the Kamehameha Hwy, on the right hand side of the road to Hale Iwa. They offer five versions: Butter and Garlic, Lemon, Spicy, Coconut, and Original. We tried all but the original, and all were good, but my personal fave was the Butter and Garlic. Finger lickin' good at... More

If you drive up to the north shore and go into Haleiwa, stop at this shrimp truck but make sure there aren't any tourist buses that have just unloaded(Japanese or mainland tourist) because it'll take forever to place your order or get it.
