I mean- so worth the line and the wait! The place is usually crowded by noon. And it for sure is nothing fancy- but their Shrimp Scampi is without a doubt the best I’ve tried. Even their rice is amazing. My only suggestion would be...More

Giovanni's Shrimp Truck is a unique place with great character and shrimp. I had the Hot and Spicy Shrimp, and they were excellent, but they are not for people who do not like hot food. Go and enjoy this unique place. You have to go...More

Line moves fast. The scampi is great, I don't like rice much but it was excellent with the scampi over it. The shrimp are huge. I would recommend this place.

This was our third trip to Giovanni's Shrimp Truck and it didn't disappoint! We had the shrimp scampi--delicious! We ate at one of the picnic tables under a shady tree. Line was long to order but wait for the food was short. Be aware...cash only,...More
