This is a new food truck! They were so nice, and the shrimp was nothing short of AMAZING!!!! they were just a short walk from where we were staying, and I loves the fact that the second time we came back they remembered me by name!!!

Food was very good a little mid range in price. Taste good and great flavor. We were on tour and stopped at this site which was recommended by the tour guide. He did not lead us wrong on this one. A lot choices for shrimp meals and plenty of rice to go along with the shrimp.

The shrimp was good even though I do not eat the shrimps. The service was excellent and the shrimp diner was right next to the major road and by the ocean as well.

Shrimp Shack food was terrible and overpriced. Did I mention greasy. We stopped here after one of our group mentioned what a good shrimp meal she had had at a shrimp truck by Haleiwa. Shrimp wasn't good, butter wasn't butter...never again.

We were traveling through and saw this shirmp truck. We decided to stop and we are glad we did! It was AMAZING! I actually liked it better than Giovannis. And Tita's as well (even though tita's is not a shrimp truck) Go, Go, Go. FABULOUS!!

Visited on the way to Sunset beach to see, what else -- a sunset. We had the fried shrimp and fries and the bbq ribs. As a previous reviewer noted, the shrimp were not deveined -- no biggie for us. Otherwise, the shrimp were large, but just average in quality. The bbq ribs were very good -- smoked onsite. My... More

While the outside of this restaurant looks acceptable, the cleanliness on the inside was the first sign I should have been much more careful. I had been to much worse places and gotten wonderful food, so I gave it a try. The prices were surprisingly high given the shape of the building - we had been to the shrimp trucks... More

If you are ever doing the round-the-island trek I highly recomend stopping at the Shrimp Express. They have a wonderful hamburger and maui onion rings that are the best I have ever had! I also really enjoy the fish & chips very much. I have eaten there 3-4 times and whenever I know that I will be by there I... More

We stopped at this restaurant on the way to the Polynesian Cultural Center which is only about five minutes down the road. Both my husband and I ordered the fish and chips. We were served a native Hawaiian white fish called Hapu'upu'u which was delicious. Even my British husband who has yet to find fish and chips outside the UK... More
