“Great shrimp, great value”
Reviewed August 15, 2012

We went here on our recent trip to the North Shore. The food was great. Plump juicy large shrimp. The chili shrimp had just the right amount og heat for me and my wife loved the lemon papper shrimp. It was just a pity they had run out of the coconut shrimp by the time we arrived.

Doo your self a favour and go here. $12 a plate was a bargin

“Macky's Shrimp Truck”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

Stopped by here on my way through Haleiwa. The place is always busy with a people. The shrimp is very good, not rubbery at all. Tender even after a 10 minute drive up to my place on the North Shore. I enjoyed the butter garlic shrimp, especially because the garlic wasn't too over powering. The rice and salad you get with your meal isn't a selling point and is pretty average for a roadside food truck. The atmosphere is what you would expect for a food truck, maybe even a little below average depending on how many people are there. The food was a little on the pricey side considering you're just eating shrimp, but you do get a decent amount of food. I would definitely return next time I'm in Oahu.

“Great place for famous garlic shrimps in North Shore, Oahu”
Reviewed August 2, 2012

This place serves great garlic shrimps plate lunch in Haleiwa, famous for great surf spot in North Shore, Oahu. The price is extremely reasonable and shrimps are very fresh. Though this is a food cart truck, you can enjoy their famous garlic shrimps in a nice outdoor environment. If you are Japanese, pick up some free local Japanese food/restaurant guides available on the streets in Waikiki and cut out discount coupon for use.This is one the must-to-dos during your stay in Oahu.

“Great shrimp and neat atmosphere”
Reviewed July 6, 2012 via mobile

If you are the North Shore, this is a great experience with good shrimp. Our group had the spicy, butter garlic and cocunuy shrimp. The butter garlic were my favorite and the spicy were good. A little pricey but you get a good amount of food. We enjoyed it south that we considered returning for dinner.

“Very good”
Reviewed June 15, 2012

Went with our family of 5 - this is good, typical shrimp truck stuff. I didn't find it any better or worse than Giovanni's. Pretty much identical. The garlic rice was awesome. I do wish the shrimp trucks were a little easier on the wallet, but it's a cool experience everyone should do if coming to the North Shore for more than a day.
