Wednesday Search Challenge (Nov 17, 2010): Where's the shrimp shack from the movie "Fast and Furious"?

Someone asked an interestingly difficult question that took much longer to find that I'd expected.  Here's the original statement of the question: 

"I wanted to find the shrimp stand that Brian and Dom had shrimp at along the coast in Southern California in the original Fast and the Furious movie ("Fast and Furious 1").   I wanted to go get me some shrimps while down in San Fernando."  

It took a little bit of time to find the answer that was specific enough to drive to.  

Can you do this?  If so, let us know how you solved the challenge! 

Search On! 


  1. Was it Neptune's Nest Seafood Restaurant - 42505 Pacific Coast Hwy., Malibu, California, USA has a list of filming locations for movies.

  2. I wasted a little time with a web search, then switched over to a Google image search with these terms:

    "fast and the furious" shrimp

    The third image looked promising, and took me here (shrimp shack is about 7 images down):

    After that a quick Google maps search (neptune's net san fernando ca) comes up with an address and easy directions from wherever:,-122.884384&sspn=0.010963,0.01929&ie=UTF8&hq=neptune%27s+net&hnear=San+Fernando,+Los+Angeles,+California&ll=34.158409,-118.639984&spn=0.852283,1.234589&z=10&iwloc=A
