Our Favorite Shrimp Truck

The shrimp trucks on Oahu's North Shore are legendary and should be on the list of food experiences for anyone visiting Oahu. I checked out local tourist information in choosing Macky's as one of the trucks we wanted to eat at. I had spent the day in Laie and took the bus to Haleiwa to the last... read more

the place isn't beautiful but it is kept original which makes it a beauty in an island. Always crowded but it's all worth it.

We drove from Kailua with the intention of returning to Giovanni's but reached Macky's first and decide to stop. We had 3 serves of garlic butter shrimp and one of the hot and spicy. The verdict was that is wasn't quite as tasty to eat as the shrimp at Giovanni's, but that we all felt better afterwards with the slightly... More

We took a time out from touring Dole Plantation and drove up the highway looking for the North Shore shrimp trucks. We came to Mackey's first and decided to try it. My wife got lemon butter and I got garlic butter. We thought both were excellent. The sticky rice was super.

Had a chance to grab a bunch of shrimp recently. The garlic shrimp is by far the most tasty. The hot and spicy shrimp is very good as well. The coconut shrimp was nice and crispy. The lemon pepper shrimp was my least favorite of the 4 tasted. They also run a very efficient shrimp truck, serving the shrimp within... More

We've been to Oahu many times and we never fail do visit THE shrimp truck. We have tried the many variations but the garlic butter shrimp is our favorite. This time, we even found a $2 coupon (good for each plate) in one of the tourist booklets. Oh, don't forget to drop in at the Green World Farms for coffee... More

On the second day of our stay at Kailua we decided to drive to the center of the island and head north to Hale'iwa to see the see the Old Sugar Mill, but that is another review. After the Mill we headed into the town and saw Macky's so having had a great experience at Giovani's the day before we... More

I wish I could've tried all the flavours but this one was recommended. Ask for extra garlic on the rice - so worth it! Finger lickin good. This place came highly recommended and did not disappoint. Tasted great after a shark dive!

I checked this place because of high rating. So disappointing. Food are ordinary. The server does not smile at all. You should try romy's further north or giovannis. They are the real one.
