This used to be our favorite shrimp stop on the North Shore. No longer! Shrimp was frozen, mushy. Garlic sauce was burned. Go to Fumi's!

Not worth the stop .... skinny shrimp deep fried in wonton wrappers ... greasy skinny shrimp about 8 of them ....with a heap of white rice for $13.50 This was not even on the menu but somehow that's what we got when we ordered our "shell free" shrimp ... we even asked them if there was indeed a half pound...

We ate a nice lunch at Romys while touring the island. The lines were very long, but our tour guide had called in our order and we did not have to wait. My daughter ate their fish meal and the garlic shrimp meal. I am allergic to seafood, so I just had the corn which was wonderful. My daughter thought... More

You would think shrimp farm, fresh and cheap: wrong. Shrimp were about 30/40 size and we received 8 shrimp with plain white rice for $14. Also upgraded one meal to combo. Gave 12 oz soda, 3 inch piece of corn and small scoop of greens for an additional $6. That's expensive for a dinner a la foam, even in Hawaii.... More

It's usually a wait of 20-30 min, our record was 90 minutes but it was worth it. About 15 shrimp on a lb, but only 4 prawns... Typical platters are ca 8 big shrimps and two rice patties. Delicious, became a favorite spot of ours after we spotted a local policeman parked outside for lunch.

We ducked out from Turtle bay, 6min east down the highway to Romy's. Waited the obligatory 30min on a very windy day - the tarp covering the red benches sounded like it was going to snap off with the next big gust. We shared the garlic butter shrimps with rice (~$14) and had some buttered corn ($2 each). The shrimp... More

We didn't know what to expect, but glad that we waited 45 minutes - the WAIT was worth it. Fast paced take out. Lots of shaded, picnic tables. The special fresh pineapple is in a spicy sauce was very different and I was not a fan of it, but I say "try it" you might think that it was the... More

Loved their garlic butter shrimps! Ohh!! Want it again! Worth the wait... o in a 90F heat too. We were on the way to the North Shore beach and stopped at this shrimp food truck. There are a few food trucks along the way, but this is the BEST one!!! Look for Romy's Shrimps and Prawns. Long line, come early...... More

I have never had shrimp like this, they were AMAZING!!!!!! It was a fun atmosphere, Picnic tables outside to eat at. We did wait for an hour for our food but I would have waited all day for their food. What better place to wait than outside in Hawaii.
