    The wait isn't too bad and the shrimp is worth it. Garlic + lemon butter give a good mix of flavors. Spend a day at the beach and come chow down on this. You will not be disappointed.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    If you are up on the north shore of Oahu this is a must- prepare to wait a little but the garlic scampi (another word for big prawns) are amazing Read more

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    Best shrimp scampi everrrr! If you allergic to shrimp, they got garlic hot dog w/ bun or rice smothered in garlic. Bring wet wipes!

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!
