This was a very different and enjoyable experience. Hot dogs were cooked well, and they had a variety of flavors. If you like spicy foods order hotter than you think. I did not find the spicy garlic lemon secret sauce to be spicy, but I...More

Went here slightly unsure of the cost of these "hot dogs". Taste and experience is worth every cent! The sausage is served in an unsplit bun, sock style. The condiments are added to the bun and the dog slipped inside. Try the mango relish and...More

I mean, you’ve got to try it!! It’s delicious and you won’t find anything like it anywhere else. May be a line but it moves fairly quickly! Everyone in our group loved their Puka Dog and everyone had something different!!!

We always have Puka Dog on our list in Kauai. We are so happy they have veg puka dogs. Love the lava and lilikoi mustard. And of course, recommended by Anthony Bourdain.

It's just not your average hot dog. I don't know if it's the special mustard they use (yes we bought a bottle) or their ingenious relishes, but those hotdogs were to die for !!! Only on our third visit did we see the "As seen...More

I try to leave reviewers better off having read my review. Classic example. You will try looking for this place, possibly Waze in, and find you cannot see it. Follow your GPS, park there, on the back of the small strip mall, and go into...More
