Was looking forward to checking this place out. First, menu says jumbo shrimp, I live 20 minutes from Galveston bay, I know what jumbo shrimp is.. And most of the taste and spices are lost after I peel the shell off.. Side item? What's the cheapest side that we can fill the rest of the plate up with,, white rice.!... More

Definitely worth visiting. Quick service, limited options - which means everything is done right. Beware the hot sauce is really really hot! Get the garlic shrimp with a side of hot sauce.

They suggested while we were there we should try Giovanni's Shrimp in Haleiwa for dinner. We slowly made our way to the North Shores stopping every now and there to check out the... More

This is a must on the North Shore. We stayed at the Turtle Bay Resort and was told by a local to visit Giovanni's. It was only a couple miles drive and well worth it. Great Shrimp and not a wallet killer.

This simple, small, no nonsense menu is to die for! Went there 3 times. Love the drive/scenery/shopping on the way there. It's just a truck, not fancy but the food speaks for itself.

Plastic forks and paper plates. picnic tables and flies. But, man, was it GOOD! If you like shrimp, you must try this place! Or the one in... More

It's interesting to visit the food truck park and see how it is done Hawaii-style. This location seemed much cleaner than others. Fewer flies, but still enough to be annoying. Shrimp was cooked well. Seasoning is good. Prices are high, especially since I am doing all the work peeling. Stop and visit the food truck park if you haven't experienced... More
