Don't Miss This

We were 2 couples looking for a good lunch. Well, it was almost a month ago and I can still recall the freshness of the garlic shrimp. Don't miss this shrimp truck!

Stopped by on a Sunday afternoon and it wasn't too crowded. A few locals and a few tourists. The truck looks very run down, but the shrimp they turn out are just the way they should be served. The garlic/butter shrimp are so good and they pour the butter they use to cook the shrimp over the rice. If you... More

We went here specifically for the coconut shrimp and it was very good as was the fruit bowl. We went here late in the afternoon first and they were out but came back another day earlier and it was available. Would recommend!

We hit 4 shrimp trucks and this was by far the most tasty. However, it lacks any of the charm of some of the others down the road that have put some effort into making the area around it look a bit more appealing !

I've had many shrimp trucks on Oahu, Maui, and Kauai and I have to say hands down the BEST I've ever had truly!!! Now if they could get a washroom area that was clean. But this review is just about the food, probably the best shrimp I've ever had!

I heard from a local at Three Tables dive spot that Macky's is the best shrimp truck in Haleiwa so that's why we chose it for lunch one day. The other shrimp trucks in town appeared to have clouds of flies buzzing around the patrons, but not at Macky's. I and one of my sons had the spicy shrimp plate... More

Basically a food truck serving flavored shrimp. Walked up to the window and ordered the spicy shrimp. Took a couple minutes and received the food. Spicy wise it was 2 out of 10. My friend got the garlic shrimp and I should have gotten that.

We stopped at this food truck on our way to the North Shore. And we were not disappointed. I had the coconut shrimp. It was delicious. Thanks for the shady spot to eat. Lunch time was pretty busy. But there was ample parking. They accepted credit cards for payment. Friendly staff. Washing station also available.
