I recently tried Puka Dog after hearing about it from a local, and wow was it amazing. Their secret sauce- mango relish mixed with ketchup- had me and my sister salivating for more the next day. We went every day during our three day trip....More

They aren't messing around with these dogs! We put our towels on our chairs and walked over from the Koa Kea. There is a system to ordering, so don't let yourself get rushed. I should have put more thought into the garlic sauce and relish....More

Puka Dog is a must try while in the area. The dogs are top quality and cooked just right. Top that off with the fun combos and you've got a winner.

The polish dog and all the choices of sauces and relishes was a lot to behold! Lemonade was the only drink option.

Different style hotdog. Assorted toppings are squirted inside bun with dog inside. The first choice is a mayo that comes in different flavors. The other toppings are based on your heat preference. Good dog. Would get again but, without the mayo.

We ate here at the recommendation of friends. It was tasty and a unique eating experience with the combination of relish (sauces) that can be chosen from and the house mustard. Give it a try........and grab extra napkins!

I don't even really like hot dogs, but we stumbled on this place and needed a quick bite. What a revelation! Something about the special garlic mayo on a sweet Hawaiian bun with the fruity relish and the polish dog takes the usual hot dog...More

4 of us actually ate here twice. First time needed a quick lunch and enjoyed it immensely so when our whole group needed lunch everyone agreed quickly on Puka Dog. The Likiloi lemonade is quite good The relish is more of a sauce. The second...More
