Yuuuuuuuuum. This food truck has a lot of hype. It is just shrimp, and rice. BUT! Really yummy and delicious so I feel like it deserves it. I got the shrimp scampi, and it was bomb! Also! Don’t let the lines scare you, super fast service imo.
We read the reviews and had to try! We drove up to the North Shore and the line was the longest for G's Shrimp Truck. It appeared to be the most popular food truck in the group by a long shot. The parking lot was madness, a sign that everyone wanted in to try the good food! We were hesitant to order but when it was finally our turn, the owner assured us the ONLY thing on the truck that contained gluten was the hot dog bun. Everything else was 100% safe. We got the Scampi plates with rice and covered in garlic. We had no reaction at all and it was absolutely delicious. My daughter at the hot dog with no bun.
I got very sick hours after eating here. I wasn’t gluten, it was food poisoning. A week later, I’m still feeling ill. After this happened I realized it’s happened to a lot of other people as stated in their negative reviews on yelp/etc. I would be cautious about eating here
We got the Scampi and it was delicious and messy. Totally gluten free ingredients with 12 shrimp, 2 scoops white rice and a lemon wedge. There is a sink at the back of the eating area to clean your hands. Lots of other neighboring food trucks but not all GF friendly. This is one of the oldest North Shore shrimp trucks!
Expensive for a food truck ($14) but good size portion and it's cheap and tasty. The scampi is the way to go, if you like garlic shrimp. There is no gluten on the menu. Just rice and shrimp, garlic, lemon, butter. Soy sauce is served in packets, optional. I'm celiac and didn't have a reaction.
I really wanted to try these famous shrimp, but waited until my last day in Hawaii. I took a risk based on certain observations of the local cuisine and habits. soy sauce is served in separate table packets, not on the rice. ingredients are listed on the menu. I had the shrimp scampi (a garlicky olive oil sauteed jumbo shrimp, with two scoops of rice - standard - the butter garlic olive oil concoction is poured right over the rice. the meal was delicious, and I had no adverse reaction.
