This was our first stop after leaving the airport. We ate in the car, at an overlook. It was so delicious. We're still talking about it months later. The shrimp are enormous and if you're ok with peel-and-eat shrimp (we certainly are) you won't be disappointed. The crab macaroni is just stupid good. But yeah, bring plenty of napkins and... More

We were touring the northern part of Maui and came across 'Geste Shrimp Truck' during lunch time. Since I was reading on TA about their food we made a stop, ordered 'Hawaiian Scampi' (butter-garlic Shrimps) and the recommended 'Spicy Pineapple Shrimps'. When our food was prepared we took a seat on a concrete wall behind the food truck, opened our... More

We loved the shrimp here so much during our 3 week stay we ate here three times. Make sure you look online to see what days they are OFF so you aren't disappointed. there are other food trucks in the area so there was once they were parked up the road a little further than where they were on previous...

Food truck parked close to the highway. Little choice : 12 shrimps with a choice of 4 types of seasonnings + rice + Mac&crab salad / 1 pupu platter / 50 shrimps platter . Nothing extraordinary as regards this menu... But the taste is there: simple, fresh, tasty, perfectly cooked. The best shrimp meal I have ever had. For $13.

Not fast but delicious. Shrimp aren't fully peeled but I've learned to not care, wife still peels. Such flavor, great size shrimp, reasonable price, worth the visit!

I had read about Geste Shrimp Truck in Kahului (I don't know where) & we decided to try to find it. Thank you GPS! You go up to the window of the truck and order, and you may have to wait 35 minutes or so, because each order is done individually. It was great. It was an unusually rainy and... More

Amazing how much flavor can come out of a pretty unassuming spot. These guys and gals are the shrimp pros! You just step up to the truck, order your type of shrimp and it comes with rice and crab macaroni salad (very tasty as well) on the side. Or skip the sides and get two extra shrimp for the same...

Went on a Saturday. Waited 10 minutes to order and then another 45 minutes for food. Food is excellent and it's affordable. However the truck is parked on the side of a busy highway. There was barely a place to park and there is no place to sit and wait or sit and eat. There isn't a garbage can to... More

I did some internet searching before stopping by this food truck. We had to wait almost 45 minutes for our food, but boy was it worth it. I got the spicy pineapple lunch plate, and my husband got the hot and spicy lunch plate. Both were excellent. The line was long, with mostly locals - which was a terrific sign... More
