I have to admit I ate here twice. As others said the buns are a bit on the big side but you do get two veggie dogs which are quite big. Try the jalepeno sauce and mango relish and do NOT forget the Lilikoi mustard!...More

We ate at Puka Dog twice during our visit to Kauai. Delicious! Yummy dogs, and luscious toppings. And the lemonade was great, too. My view is that when you are in Hawaii, you can expect high prices. So what--you are in vacation! Enjoy yourself and...More
