The Original Shrimp Truck serving the island since 1993.
The shrimp scampi is a must! The hot and spicy is seriously spicy (even for a spicy lover like myself) so make sure you are ready for some tongue burning awesomeness and have some water on the side.
Uhm yummmm. Shrimp scampi is where it's at, if you like spicy get the hot sauce on the side. I love spicy but their hot sauce is spicy spicy to the max!
Shrimp is good. Try to go with another person, one of you can make the line for the shrimp while the other gets corn (which they sell in a stand close by and it's amazing) and get seats.
Shrimp scampi is great, but on the salty side. The lemon butter shrimp tastes & smells like wet rag, but some people may like the lemon flavor. All shrimp is fresh, good quality, and nicely sized.
One of the best shrimp trucks in the area. Garlic rice is SUPER garlicky. Order to go and sit in your car and eat. The flies can get a little intense. Grab napkins, things get messy.
After you try the delicious food (not one bad item on the menu), you may want to tag the shrimp truck or the pick-up truck in the parking lot. No marker? Kahuku Superette right next door sells them.
Don't miss this place if you're driving through North Shore. Stir fried in butter, lemon and garlic sauce - you'll be licking your fingers for days!
The scampi style is most popular. The hot and spicy is super hot and spicy so beware. They do offer half plates which are perfect size.
It wasn't very good. Small chewy shrimp. The flavor just wasn't there. Got the scampi + they were oily. Don't believe the hype. Try Blue Water Shrimp Truck on the other side of the North Shore instead
The scampi is the best. If u can stomach the spicy, do it...just expect not to be able to taste anything for a day or two. ;) the best shrimp on the island fo sho
Didn't care for the chilli spicy shrimp. Garlic shrimp was good. Has romy's the day before. Hard to say whose was better but I liked the excessive burnt garlic at romy's.
This place is a tourist trap! The shrimp is not fresh Kahuku shrimp, it's shipped frozen from the mainland. Go to Romeys instead, they are the only place that has fresh Kahuku shrimp.
Took us some time to track it down, but SO worth it. The shrimp are massive, fresh and melt in your mouth. Garlic/lemon shrimp for sure.
I can handle a lot of spice, believe me.... but the spicy shrimp was VERY spicy for me. Be careful. Go with the scampi and enjoy the shrimp!
Very good garlic shrimp. I do wish they had been de-shelled. Felt like I lost some of the garlic sauce when I pulled off the shells.
Garlic shrimp scampi better than the spicy (tastes like Tabasco). BYOB and sit under the plumeria trees!
Best Shrimp ever! Thick and juicy and full of garlic. One plate serves 2 ppl. 12 shrimp and 2 scoops of rice topped with garlic.
We are sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the experience at the shrimp truck Muriel v. I will forward this review to the owner. Giovanni's Shrimp Truck Jorge
Get the scampish with garlic on your rice and hot sauce for dipping! I'd recommend draining the oil from the plate b4 digging in. Bon appetite!
Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy the shrimp Gina, but our shrimp is freas as well.. Hope you will give us another chance in the future..
Best shrimp scampi everrrr! If you allergic to shrimp, they got garlic hot dog w/ bun or rice smothered in garlic. Bring wet wipes!
only worth a stop if you're a shrimp fanatic. personally I don't think it's worth the price. however, the hot sauce is killer great!
Ate the shrimp scampi even if I was allergic to shrimp and i think it's great! Ate them barehanded and it was more fun eating it.
Giovanni's was featured on The Travel Channel's Man v Food Oahu Episode! We are so proud and we hope you enjoy!! http://www.travelchannel.com Oahu Man vs Food Nation www.travelchannel.com
Don't forget to tag your name on the infamous white truck! (My name by the driver's side window on the upper right hand corner!)
Meh, if busy try one of the other shrimp vans, I'm sure they are all the same if not faster service. Take wet towels too as messy stuff!
The spicy shrimp rocks and lives up to the hype, but I liked the scampi even more. Get garlic on the rice!
Tried the shrimp scampi dish, it was ok. The garlic was pretty bitter. Mostly hype.
Overrated. Super unhealthy shrimp in a dumpy setting. Head down the road to Romys for better shrimp and beautiful scenery.
Love the shrimp scampi and hot sauce on the side. Oh, and for dessert, get fresh-cut pineapples next door.
Expect a 1 hour+ wait. But get a corn on the cob at Woody's nearby and some shoyu poke from Kuhuku Superette while you wait!
The hot and spicy shrimp will make your mouth BURN. The flavor is great but make sure you have lots of water on hand to drink.
Make sure to be hungry! The food is delicious! Some of the BEST shrimp I've ever had!!!
be ready to eat! every bite of the shrimp is worth it, also bring hand wipes, its sticky but good
The best garlic shrimp I've ever had! Get the scampi...you can skip the Mac salad :)
Garlic butter scampi. So good. And so much of it. All the locals are there - so it must be the best!
Love all the dishes at this place. Make sure you bring napkins because you will get messy.
Amazing - love this place. Was here 3 times this trip. People are great and the shrimp scampi is unbelievable
Letting everyone know that Giovanni's will be at the Ho'olaulea festival on kalakaua ave. in Waikiki on September 21, 2013....
Forget seafood restaurants in Waikiki. This is the way to go for shrimp in Oahu. Scampi!
Get plenty of napkins! Some of the best "finger-licking-good" food I have ever had.
Giovanni's Shrimp truck was on the travel network's man vs food. Check out Adam take on the spicy shrimp and remember the island.
You can get half plates...but why play around go for the dozen and two scoops. :-)
get the roasted sweet corn - it's expensive at $3 a piece, but it's SO good!
This place is totally overrated. The line is super long for the mediocre food which is cooked in unsanitary conditions.
This is THE ORIGINAL HAWAIIAN SHRIMP TRUCK. The rest are copy-cats! So good their original sauce is bottled and sold in stores :)
Loved all of the types of shrimp ! Tasty and reasonable prices.
Strategize! One person stands in line to order, another person scopes out a table, and yet another person to order a few cobs of BBQ!
I agree with you Christine Hong, but also get the spicy on the side...
