This is the freshest shrimp ever! They have ponds on site that they grow the shrimp to feed to us. It's a.ma.zing! we could do without the wait, especially for the number of people in our group, however, the serving sizes they gave us were heaping, and that kept us eating for long enough to forget the wait. We had... More

OMG, Can it taste any better than this? No way! We keep going back and well worth the drive from Honolulu taking the Pali Hwy. I'm a firm believer that if it's this good, then it is worth the drive and line to stand in to order, Be prepared as you may wait an hour after your order is placed.... More

This place was highly touted as the best shrimp place of them all. But not so in my opinion. We ordered a pound of steamed shrimp with rice to share which didn't take long. Unfortunately the shrimp still had the heads and were not de-veined. The shrimp were sizeable but it was definitely not a pound of shrimp. It left... More

Our son told us about this place, so we had to try it. All food is made to order. Be prepared to wait in line to order and wait for your food to be cooked fresh. It is worth the wait.

So DW is extremely fond of the shrimp trucks in Oahu North shore . We did all of them on our last visit . We had already done Giovanni ( review on Their page ) she decided she needed to try Romys again. I was wondering why during the last trip we only came once to romys. My question was... More

My family of 3 was staying by the North Shore for the week so wanted to hit all the popular food trucks. We had already done Giovanni's so wanted to try Romy's to compare. We were there on a weekday around 5 pm with only a few people in line. But after ordering, we were told it would still take... More

I was driving up north coast at lunch time with friends around lunch time and checked tripadvisor for suggestion. It's high rating and number of cars in parking area had me excited. The good is the shrimp we received was good. The bad news. The wait was over 1 1/2 hours. Once we reached the window over half items on... More

Yummy shrimp harvested on site. It's a wait but not too bad as long as you get in line before the tour bus orders 25 meals ahead of you. Enjoy the view and water birds from the James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge.

The food was okay I expected more because the line was almost near the street! Then when we received our food the entire order was wrong! When my husband took it back they wanted us to pay more money to fix their mistake keep in mind we were not paying for additional items we just needed him to swap out... More

Ate here for a late lunch/early dinner. Had to wait 45 minutes after ordering. A bit pricey ( 42.00 for 2 people). Ordered the garlic shrimp plate with corn, salad, rice, and soda. Good flavor but very messy. Hubby had steamed shrimp which took less time to prepare but pretty tasty. The flies buzzing everywhere were unpleasant. Guess that's to... More
