A mandatory stop each time we go to the North Shore. The garlic shrimp is the best! Watch for coupons in the drive guides or tourist guides. Popular stop for tour buses too. Right at the entrance to Haleiwa

The very best shrimp...just be sure what you get is already peeled. Cooked shrimp doesn't easily surrender its shell and it can be frustrating and challenging to get out of...nevermind really messy. But, YUM! It's mauka on the west end of town .

Very good. They were out of the coconut shrimp so we got the lemon pepper and butter garlic. Butter garlic was better but the lemon pepper also really good. It was served with white rice, salad and pineapple. My only complaint is that they put the porta potties very close to the truck, so flies are everywhere. Spent $28 on... More

Very tasty, large portions and fast service. Well worth the stop while on the North Shore. The original shrimp plate is the way to go.

Great shrimp ... all flavors. You get a fairly large serving (enough for two). Generally crowded. I would pick this as better than the others (even the more famous names). If it is super busy, just go and come back. It has peaks and valleys. Will need lots of paper towels. Food is delicious.

I was told to go somewhere else by non-locals. I listened to the local. Garlic Shrimp, Garlic Rice and Pineapple from Heaven. Service could us a smile but, when you're that busy...I'll give it a pass. Tried another company...Macky's is best.

Heard about this place from a few colleagues and I was determined to check it out. I only eat seafood and am always on the hunt for a good dish. We passed this place at first and ended up at the food truck area about a quarter mile up the road. Use the 7Eleven as your landmark to find this... More

We enjoyed our meals at Macky's. They produced very tasty food in a remarkably short time. The tip (from a Trip Advisor reviewer) to buy drinks from the 7/11 next door was a good one and the overall cost was reasonable. So this truck produces a reasonably priced meal. However it is certainly not in the excellent category. Finally, if... More

Trust me, you need this garlic shrimp in your life! Ample parking, seating, and fast service on top of the delicious food makes this place your best bet for shrimp on the North Shore!

"You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, saute it. Dey's uh, shrimp-kabobs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo. Pan fried, deep fried, stir-fried. There's pineapple shrimp, lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich." - Bubba Gump Yes, you can do all that to shrimp...but Macky's even takes...
