“Great outdoor eating on the North Shore”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

I had heard that when on the North Shore of Oahu you needed to eat at a shrimp truck. Based on reviews I read we stopped at mackys in Haleiwa. The menu is short but sweet. My wife and I both had the garlic shrimp and she is still talking about it. Step up to the window, place your order, find a place at the picnic tables a few feet away and wait to be called. The shrimp was great. Yes, I now agree. When on the North Shore do a shrimp truck. And Mackys is a very good choise.

“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014

Excellent! We had the coconut shrimp and the garlic butter shrimp...delicious and very filling. I would have eaten at Macky's every day if my wife would have let me.

“Best Shrimp Truck on Oahu”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014 via mobile

What a surprise. You can't judge this book by its cover. Great shrimp dishes are delivered through the window of this battered food truck parked in a dirt parking lot beside the 7-11. We have stopped in twice after a day of hiking in the North Shore. Butter Garlic Shrimp is the best but spicey is also good. Hope to stop in one more time before we leave the NS

“Best Shrimp Truck”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014 via mobile

I've been coming to the North Shore for a few years & Mackey's is the hands down winner. Skip everything else on the menu & go straight for the garlic shrimp. Fun fact: when Mackey's truck used to be in Kahuku a scene from Lost was shot there.

“Shrimp-licious”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2014

Driving to the North Shore, we saw a car park filled with SUV's, vans, cars and buses and a little caravan with a big shrimp along the side.
Having to stop we ordered 2 plates of shrimp took a seat and these would have to have been some of the best and sweetest shrimp i've tasted.

delicious.

The order taker is short and abrupt in a good way, the shrimp is fresh and the rice is fluffy.
No complaints at all.
A must go to for all travelling to the North Shore of Oahu.
