We stopped here today and the shrimp was some of the best I’ve ever had. I had the lemon pepper and my friends had the garlic shrimp and the ribs plate. Perfectly spiced and delicious.

After visiting our favorite shrimp truck across the street, and being very disappointed, we tried a new place...Big Wave....shrimp was a bit undercooked, but all in all, pretty good. They stated it was spicy, but pretty bland to us. Good stuff though, and we will...More

One of the best Shrimp dishes on the North Shore of Oahu! From the easy to peel, juicy shrimps, fresh chucks of garlic, healthy portion of rice, side salad, and to the pineapple, the plate surely has an eclectic flavor one has to try! Not...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.
