By far, the very best shrimp truck we are at during our trip! The garlic shrimp was to die for!!! A bit on the pricy side but, definitely very tasty!

Let me start by saying that if you're not a fan of fresh shrimp in garlic butter, go elsewhere. Giovanni's is a food truck and shrimp is all they serve. The shrimp is local and is served up with lots of garlic and butter. There are adjacent trucks that sell smoothies and roasted corn. Seating is at picnic tables, some... More

Good garlic shrimp on the North Shore. Turning into a bit of a tourist trap but at least the food is good

Grabbed the garlic shrimp for lunch one day. It's very good, messy, but good. The rice is good on the side. Seems pricey, but, what isn't in Hawaii?

I ordered the shrimp platter with rice and found the shrimp to be a little soft. There were 12 shrimp, so you got a lot to eat, but I thought it was just average at best.

The shrimps were so good! As a garlic lover I loves them. Well prepared. I would recommend this to everyone who likes shrimp. You can sit in front of the truck and enjoy this delicious plate.

$14 for the classic Scampi, tons of butter and garlic pieces, finger licking good though some will think it’s simply too much. The token rice is average at best. $14 sounds like a lot for 12 shrimp but relative to prices on the island, it’s reasonable. The trucks are characteristic white with writing on them and there are two within... More

Great garlic shrimp, the shrimp were fresh and juicy and the sauce was on the boarder of banishing any vampires in a 10k radius but so so good. I also got a coconut strawberry and pineapple smoothie from the truck next to it which was so tasty. Would definitely stop again and will crave it for the next few months!

Thank Victoria I
