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

    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.

    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.

    Not at all Kaitlin... The shrimp is marinated over-night to get all the flavor... Take care..

    Dica: peça o 1° com alho, é divino!!! O 2° com pimenta é impossível comer(too hot), o 3° com limão é gostosinho!!🍤

    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.

    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.
