I figured there'd be a million reviews but I still had to throw mine into the lot. Delicious shrimp and the crab mac salad is strange (black olives? Why?) yet delicious. I usually forgo the scoop of white rice for double scoop crab mac and they never charge me extra. There are all the usual flavours (lemon pep, hotnspicy, hawaiian... More

Great Shrimp. It was a great stop!! It is cooked to order so expect to wait, but it is worth it. Get there early so you don't have to wait so long. The food is so good, customers don't care if they have to wait.

We had a little trouble trying to find this well recommended lunch spot. Actually it is easy to find because it is a truck parked 10' off the highway. The shrimp were exceptional. We had the lemon pepper and the Spicy Pineapple. Both were exceptional, but if you can handle some spice order the Spicy Pineapple.

We waited a half hour for this truck to open when we happened to be in Kahalui and we're really glad we did. Between the three of us we tried three different Shrimp plates and they were all excellent. This is the only lunch/dinner restaurant/takeout that we would return to in Maui. It's a bit pricey but at least you... More

You must, must, must put this on your Maui list. The shrimp is amazing. We track the truck down every visit to the island.

We just happened to see this little place on a drive and we decided to give it a try. Great choice for shrimp on the island and very reasonably priced!

We stopped here on our way to tour the island by helicopter. I had the hot shrimp and my wife had the Hawaiian scampi. Both were very good but we had to peal the shrimp.

Don't be fooled by the rustic appearance and location of this food truck. Best damn shrimp we've ever had. Grab a to go box and find a beach to sit at. Try the spicy, pineapple. I'm hungry just typing this.

We read all the reviews on this, and had to try it. It was outstanding. Be prepared to sit on a rather dingy picnic table or take your order home. Yummy !!
