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.

This place is great. If you like spicy, you'll love this place. Don't be concerned about the long line. It's always crowded, but the service is quick & the food is delicious! Great tasting shrimp.

We went because of the great hype on this shrimp truck. During peak hours the line is huge, but the service is fast.

I'd read a lot about this place and wasn't sure whether it would be worth it; some places that get a lot of press are just big tourist traps. However this place totally lived up to the hype and was awesome- tasty, a good value, and fun. The food (classic shrimp) was absolutely delicious and the setting was fun and... More
