Had to stop and have some shrimp. Best I've had and so fun to sit outside and eat. The local chickens will entertain you too

There was a long line when we arrived and the shrimp was worth waiting for. We ordered the shrimp scampi and it was delicious! You could taste the garlic it was prepared in and with a little bit of the hot sauce added it was fantastic. We plan on coming back before we leave Oahu.

The aroma was incredible. A bit of a long line. Well worth the wait. Indulged in a garlic hot dog. Seemed to be all beef and was delicious.

I have been wanting to go here for awhile now and their shrimp platters were fantastic. I got the hot and spicy and it provided quite the zing! The rice was excellent as well!

A huge plate of shrimp and fantastic flavor. Only complaint is long line, but it moves quick. If you are in the area, you must stop!

Heard great things about this place. We had the hot & spicy and lemon butter shrimp. Really tasty. Didn't care for the wild roosters hanging around though.

Delicious and generous serve. 10 or 12 medium sized fresh prawns with 2 scoops of rice covered in a lovely buttery garlic sauce. Service was fast too.

We stopped here on the advice of friends who grew up on Oahu. There are several food trucks in this large lot. Parking was insane on the summer day we visited. There are dozens of people coming and going and chickens roaming the lot. The line at Giovanni's was very long; the other shrimp trucks had no lines. My son... More

If you love shrimp and lots of garlic, truck on over to this food truck. You'll see lots of shrimp trucks on the North Shore, but wait until you get to Giovanni's. And you'll wait in a line once you get there. We arrived around 1:30 pm for lunch and stood in line 15-20 minutes, so be prepared. This shrimp... More
