Very good. They were out of the coconut shrimp so we got the lemon pepper and butter garlic. Butter garlic was better but the lemon pepper also really good. It was served with white rice, salad and pineapple. My only complaint is that they put the porta potties very close to the truck, so flies are everywhere. Spent $28 on two plates (each came with about 7-9 shrimp) and two sodas.

Very tasty, large portions and fast service. Well worth the stop while on the North Shore. The original shrimp plate is the way to go.

Great shrimp ... all flavors. You get a fairly large serving (enough for two). Generally crowded. I would pick this as better than the others (even the more famous names). If it is super busy, just go and come back. It has peaks and valleys. Will need lots of paper towels. Food is delicious.

I was told to go somewhere else by non-locals. I listened to the local. Garlic Shrimp, Garlic Rice and Pineapple from Heaven. Service could us a smile but, when you're that busy...I'll give it a pass. Tried another company...Macky's is best.

Heard about this place from a few colleagues and I was determined to check it out. I only eat seafood and am always on the hunt for a good dish. We passed this place at first and ended up at the food truck area about a quarter mile up the road. Use the 7Eleven as your landmark to find this spot as its right next door to Mackeys if you miss the small sign on the road. I had the spicy shrimp and it was delicious. My sister had the butter garlic shrimp and raved about it as well. All the shrimp dishes cost $13 and come with rice, salad and a slice of pineapple. Check it out if you are in the area -- it's worth it!
