“Oh so Yummy!”
Review of Big Wave Shrimp

Big Wave Shrimp
Ranked #15 of 87 Restaurants in Haleiwa
Certificate of Excellence
Cuisines: Seafood
Description: At Big Wave Shrimp, we are serving Aloha daily. Our food truck is a favorite for locals and visitors alike, with a menu full of tasty, Hawaiian-style meals. With lots of tables, plenty of shade, and calming music, you'll love the laid-back ambience. Chef Kawita is the heart of our Big Wave Shrimp truck, adding love and ono-licious ingredients to every plate she serves. We are known for our shrimp plates, like Garlic Shrimp, Peeled Shrimp, Spicy Shrimp, and Shrimp Fried Rice, but we have plenty of other options as well. The Short Ribs, Spring Rolls, or our famous Mac Salad are sure to hit the spot.

“Oh so Yummy!”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Just back from Hawaii after a wonderful week of Sweet Adeline competitions. Four gals ventured to the North Shore as a result of seeing the Diners, Drive-ins and Dives episode which was aired several months ago. We each purchased a meal and shared the scrumptious ribs, shrimp, cole slaw and rice. It was so yummy! I would highly recommend stopping by during your travels.

“Tasty!”
Reviewed October 20, 2013

Had read about shrimp trucks before our trip to Hawaii, so was very keen to try one. Glad we did. A great place to stop for lunch. Big plate of very tasty food for $12 each. Probably one of my favourite meals whilst in Hawaii.

“Great options. Even better Customer Service”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

We arrived and ordered right away. I had the garlic shrimp plate ($12) and it was plenty of food. The shrimp was great with the rice!
The owner even came out and made our picture together for us in their photo op statue.
Would recommend for good shrimp options on the north shore.

“Good place to stop for a quick lunch”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We were going to be traveling the north shore today and wanted to get luch before starting out. Looking for something local we saw the big wave shrimp truck and since we have never had anything from a food truck we thought why not give it a try.

The shrimp was excellent we Had garlic and crispy shrimp. The serving size was large about 10 shrimp on each plate along with rice and a really tasty slaw. I would recommend eating here to anyone looking for local food.

“The best!!”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

We had heard about this place so we hired a car to drive around the island, but more specifically to find this shrimp truck. We weren't disappointed! We had garlic shrimp which was divine. The staff were very friendly & clean. Will definitely be revisiting on our next Hawaii trip.
