I don't like giving bad reviews but for the money spent here, there has to be a better place for shrimp on the north shore. I have no problem waiting for good food......but this was not it. The price was high. And at $20 for a shrimp combo plate. (Rice, corn, small salad and only 8-10 shrimp) It is just not worth it! The shrimp did not even seem that fresh and the toppings were burnt. The service was slow and rude, I really see no reason to go back and eat there again.

If on the island of Oahu this is a must stop! Nothing like it and once you tried you'll want to be back!!

Love the Shrimp trucks but once was enough for me at Romy's. Service was terrible - painfully slow and the staff were pretty rude. And the shrimp is just okay.

Try Fumi's just down the road or Giovanni's instead. They are way better.

Stopover for lunch in this place is part of our itinerary in circling the island of Oahu. You can taste the freshly catch succulent shrimp.

We were on the north shore for three weeks for business. We travel a lot and have seen the good the bad and the "not worth it".
I have no problem waiting for good food. This was not. I am amazed at the pricing on the north shore. It is high. But $20 for a shrimp combo plate. Rice, corn, small salad and ~ 8-10 shrimp is not worth it in my book. With a small drink we were $22 per person. One bathroom out of order the other looks like a bomb went off and not a pretty one.
Disappointed in the aloha experience at this road side truck diner.
