We visited the Geste Shrimp truck multiple times. Shrimp was freshly prepared, to order. Each flavor delish! For $13, you get: 10 colossal shrimp (your choice of flavor), a scoop of rice, and a scoop of crab macaroni salad! Seriously, you're missing out if you don't try it. We only wish we had read about it sooner into our trip.

This may be one of the best dining experiences we've had in Hawaii, certainly in Maui. The Geste Shrimp truck provided one of the most incredible shrimp offerings we've experienced, and we've sampled shrimp all over North Shore at some of those famous trucks. Geste offers a generous serving of succulent shrimp prepared a number of different ways. We had the Hawaiian scampi and lemon pepper and were blown away by the generous serving (12 shrimp per plate) and incredible sauce and flavorings.

The shrimp are served with skin and tail so you probably will use your hands to best advantage. We read other reviews so we brought plenty of napkins and wet wipes. Also, the location might be a bit hard for some people to find. It's on Kahului Beach Road on the side facing the ocean, of course, and you can only get there safely going in one direction. Stay on Kahului Beach Road going away from the airport heading toward Wailuku. The Geste Shrimp truck will be just off the road with some other food trucks and park along the road if safe or into the road to the harbor. The trucks are across the street from the entrances to the Maui Cultural Arts Center and the Maui Community College. There is sometimes heavy traffic on the road so be careful but this gem is really worth it.

We stopped for lunch based on the great reviews on Tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We had the Hawaiian Scampi for $13. There were 12 shrimp served over rice in a tasty sauce. Plus, the Mac salad was the best we have ever had!

We stopped at the shrimp truck after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. We definitely were pleased. We ordered the pineapple shrimp and actually shared it. You get 12 shrimp which is quite a bit. The crab mac is fabulous. We will try Geste's one more time before we head back to the mainland. You can take your food and go the the park across the street. Just head away from town to the light after Geste's and turn left. The entrance to the park is about 1/4 mile on your left. You can have a picnic with the best shrimp ever.

We stopped by here after the swap meet. It's literally right down the street by the water front. As everyone has suggested, get the spicy pineapple shrimp. You will not be sorry you did. You get a dozen shrimp (not so shrimp like, good sized), 2 scoops of rice and macaroni salad. Really flavorful and tasty shrimp. Every order is made to order so you don't have to worry about the shrimp just sitting there under a warming light. There's also some cabbage under the shrimp that tastes so good with the sauce. The shrimp is not too spicy just right for me. Me and the girlfriend split this as a snack and it was almost large enough to serve as lunch. Make this stop and you won't be disappointed.
