We love the fried fish po boy and would not miss that treat during our trips to the North Shore. The sweet tea is also a welcome treat for us southerners.

Best jambalaya I've had in a long time. Not too spicy, very fresh-tasting, loaded with plump shrimp and sausage - the meat even still had a little bit of char on it still, which I loved. Knocking off one star because it took almost 25 minutes to get my food after ordering - and unless they were making a fresh... More

Checked this food truck out because the line at Giovanni's was so long. I don't often encounter cajun food, so this was a rare treat. Nice tasting, good for southern food away from the south.

This was a new find for us this year and a definite place we will visit again. The combination of amazing food at a reasonable price, with over-the-top friendly and helpful service makes this the hands down choice for North Shore food trucks. I had just ordered garlic shrimp from the super grumpy, unfriendly folks at Giovanni's, but as my... More

It looks like most people that come to this park come for the garlic shrimp truck. My friends, i implore you, please try the food at the cajun food truck. You will not be disappointed. First of all, you can get the sweet tea here for $2.50 which come with free refills. Second the poboy sandwiches are amazing. I personally... More

The jambalaya, Cajun shrimp po'boy, and beignets were delicious! Quaint setting amongst many other food trucks. Service with a smile. The food truck section is on the edge of town, as you enter/leave Haleiwa - a nice town, worth a visit. I'd return.

Excellent food fairly priced at this food truck in Hale'ewa. Salty but that's the way Cajun food is. We got extra bread for $1 to sop up the extra dipping sauce from our po boys. Great guys running the place and picnic table seating outside.

So, we finally got a chance to try the food at this well revised truck last weekend. It did not disappoint. Originally intended to order the Buffalo shrimp po' boy, but got the special instead. It was chicken, delicious, juicy, and tender. I want the shrimp next time, but will likely have to argue with myself about the choice. I... More

I had the new orleans bbq shrimp po-boy. It was VERY messy, but I loved every bite. Next time I would just get the shrimp plate rather than the sandwich to save myself some of the hassle. The sweet potato fries were also amazing.

I am from the south. This was some of the worst Cajun food I've ever had in my life. The shrimp taste like they are pit raised. My husband stopped talking to the rest of our fellow diners. He put his fork down and stopped eating because his seat was positioned where he could actually see inside of the truck.... More
