You will wait but then be rewarded. The scampi with hot sauce on the side is a must if you like spicy.

Great shrimps! The rice could be a little bit more flavored but there is still lots of garlic all over the shrimps. We loved it and where looking for other shrimp strucks, but this is unique.

You must experience the shrimp truck. We do it frequently, as the shrimp comes in all different ways, but love the garlic shrimp

Awesome food! Very fast, perfect balance of garlic and bitter for the #1 garlic butter shrimp. Rent a car and visit the north coast and on your way to the Polynesian cultural center stop at the shrimp truck

Everyone raved about this and def all true. The garlic shrimp plate with rice was fantastic. So so tasty and the consistency of the shrimp was great. Delicious and def worth getting a car and driving up north shore to experience these shrimp trucks. It's also just a cool drive with lovely beaches along the way.

Spicy shrimp is not for the faint of heart. Note on the menu says "no refunds" as it'll light your fire. Fresh cold coconuts, pineapples, and fruit smoothies, and cheap outdoor market for souvenirs next to it. Outdoor covered seating. Try the fresh pineapple & coconut smoothie...like piña colada.
