We happened upon the Big Wave truck and others in their lot since it was not so crowded. We all tried a different variety. Personally I loved the lemon pepper and my son enjoyed the garlic butter. Cooked perfectly and a great deal at $13!!...More

At Big Wave Shrimp, we are serving Aloha daily. Our food truck is a favorite for locals and visitors alike, with a menu full of tasty, Hawaiian-style meals. With lots of tables, plenty of shade, and calming music, you'll love the laid-back ambience. Chef Kawita is the heart of our Big Wave Shrimp truck, adding love and ono-licious ingredients to every plate she serves. We are known for our shrimp plates, like Garlic Shrimp, Peeled Shrimp, Spicy Shrimp, and Shrimp Fried Rice, but we have plenty of other options as well. The Short Ribs, Spring Rolls, or our famous Mac Salad are sure to hit the spot.
