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

I tried this truck's food for the first time this summer when family was visiting. Of all the food trucks in that area, this one was the most reasonably priced and the menu looked awesome. The food did not disappoint. I ordered the half fish po'boy and others ordered fried fish, jambalaya, and sweet teas. First, the portions were very... More

Fabulous food and fun guys serving the food. Try the cajun shrimp and you won't be disappointed. The menu has just about every cajun dish you can think of.

My daughter and I don't eat shrimp so we headed to this food truck while my husband waited over an hour at Giovanni's across the parking lot. Just looking for a snack we ordered fried pickles, fried okra and sweet tea. Unfortunately they were out of fried okra. The fried pickles were good but very thinly sliced. The sweet tea... More

Recently visited Oahu and made a stop in Haleiwa near all the food trucks for lunch. There were a wide variety of choices (with 75% serving shrimp), but I finally decided on Dat Cajun Guy because I saw buffalo shrimp. I am a sucker for buffalo sauce and figured that it had to be good mixed with shrimp. The meal... More

This truck is the bomb. Highly recommend the chicken sausage gumbo and the BBQ shrimp. Both delicious with good flavor. I also tried a side of pickles and the sweet tea this time and enjoyed those too. The customer service is wonderful, will gladly answer any questions about the menu, and I love that they come out and refill your... More

I was craving gumbo, and then turned around and Dat Cajun Guy was pulling into the food truck lot! They have gumbo, jumbalaya, gumbolaya, and etoufee! And all of it was great.
