Had scampi and hot and spicy. The hot and spicy was way overcooked. Scampi tasted good and cooked right. However, the line up was 30 minutes and honestly unnecessary. The guy taking the order is just too slow. During the line up i actually got...More

Try the lemon garlic shrimp, it was delicious! It was a bit pricey at about a dozen shrimp with a spoonful of rice for $14, but it was definitely tasty. I'd definitely suggest to get there a little bit earlier on in the afternoon. We...More

I really don't know what they put on their garlic shrimp but it's the best shrimp i've eaten and it's addicting hands down. You just have to drive down to Giovanni's Shrimp Truck. It is worth the drive, highly recommended...

No where else do you get these garlicky giant shrimp and the best sticky rice. Just absolutely love this meal. Grab a table with everyone else under the shed and chow down! This is not some crappy tourist attraction, it's a legit great meal!

This shrimp is seriously spicy!!! The shrimp was good but i was expecting it to be better because i think everyone hyped it up. It was good tho. Cash only make sure u have some.

This place is worth the hype and the long lines. We liked it so much we went back again a couple days later!! I definitely recommend bringing some hand sanitizer or wet wipes to clean your hands after peeling the shell off of the shrimp.

Bear garlic shrimp I've ever had! This food truck is super busy.... but rightly so! Hit the spot after a day full of swimming, SUP, and diving! You can't come to North Shore without getting shrimp from Giovanni's!
