“Shrimpy shrimp!”
Reviewed January 4, 2014

We stopped by this yummy shrimp truck on the way to the North Shore. We had the garlic shrimp and the coconut shrimp. Everyone really liked the garlic shrimp, and I thought the coconut shrimp was excellent. There are a lot of picnic tables for groups to sit at. Definitely a worthwhile stop for lunch or a snack.

“Great Shrimp Truck, Lots of Character”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

This truck is located on the north side of the island near the town of Haleiwa. It looks like a food truck that broke down in front of a 7-Eleven. But it fits in with the atmosphere. There is a lot of seating (covered benches) but sometimes if your timing is bad you'll get behind a tour bus or two and end up with a long wait and lack of seating. Our favorites are the Garlic Shrimp and Spicy Shrimp (ask for extra sauce on the rice).

“Good shrimp truck”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

We enjoyed Macky's for lunch on our circle island drive. This is the only shrimp truck I've stopped at (other than the place at IMP in Waikiki, if that counts) so I can't really say it's the best, but it is very good. We shared the spicy and the garlic butter shrimp, and both were very tasty large EZ peel shrimp, with some nice kick on the spicy ones. Maybe could've done with extra sauce on the rice, but that's just because the sauce was soooo good I wanted more. All in all, for a food truck it seemed relatively clean with a decent, shaded eating area (picnic tables) and hand sink with soap (out of paper towels though) to wash up at.

“Loved the shrimp”
Reviewed December 2, 2013

Stopped here for shrimp based on the trip advisor reviews and loved the shrimp. Ate here twice and shared the garlic shrimp, lemon butter and coconut shrimp. They were so tasty. Highly recommend Macky's.
