On our recent visit to Oahu, my husband and I tried to eat at as many food trucks, dives, and off the beaten path eateries as we could possibly find! Big Wave was one of our favorites by far! It's nestled in the town of...More

Had to wait for a bit but it is worth it. Started with the garlic pepper shrimp, then had the ribs. Had to go back for the ribs a couple days in a row.

We had a party of 6. A full meal was 12 dollars which is good for Oahu. Everything was fresh and tasty and came out fast. The people were extra friendly and took our picture.

At Big Wave Shrimp, we are serving Aloha daily. Our food truck is a favorite for locals and visitors alike, with a menu full of tasty, Hawaiian-style meals. With lots of tables, plenty of shade, and calming music, you'll love the laid-back ambience. Chef Kawita is the heart of our Big Wave Shrimp truck, adding love and ono-licious ingredients to every plate she serves. We are known for our shrimp plates, like Garlic Shrimp, Peeled Shrimp, Spicy Shrimp, and Shrimp Fried Rice, but we have plenty of other options as well. The Short Ribs, Spring Rolls, or our famous Mac Salad are sure to hit the spot.
