    Overrated. Super unhealthy shrimp in a dumpy setting. Head down the road to Romys for better shrimp and beautiful scenery.

    This is THE ORIGINAL HAWAIIAN SHRIMP TRUCK. The rest are copy-cats! So good their original sauce is bottled and sold in stores :)

    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.

    The North Shore's shrimp "food truck", and it's been around much longer than the trendy food trucks in LA!

    Garlic shrimp are tasty and messy! Come with shells on so you've got to peel them.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Garlic shrimp scampi better than the spicy (tastes like Tabasco). BYOB and sit under the plumeria trees!

    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!

    The spicy is legit - no refunds! Ask for garlic on your rice.

    Garlic butter scampi. So good. And so much of it. All the locals are there - so it must be the best!

    Tried the shrimp scampi dish, it was ok. The garlic was pretty bitter. Mostly hype.

    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.

    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.
