We stopped here for a quick bite to eat on our last evening of vacation. Had heard a lot about the place. The dog was delicious with a variety of different sweet relishes to try- papaya, mango, pineapple, etc. and a lilikoi mustard. Worth a...More

This place was amazing. We visited for a quick lunch during our honeymoon. The place is hidden in an outdoor mall area and there isn’t much seating, but it is absolutely delicious. Also, with the different mustards and fillings, you pretty much have unlimited fun...More

First had Puka Dog 9 years ago on a visit with a friend. We went back 3 times! Obviously I had to stop by on this trip. I got the polish sausage with the mango relish. Still delicious! I want to try them all.

I needed a snack so I got a Puka Dog. The highlight here are all the specialty mustards and sauces you can add to your dog. The dogs are good sized but the sauces/ mustards are amazing. Lots of unique pairings are available. I have...More

Many sauces to choose to put in your polish dog and many temperature ranging from original to habanero for the dog. Biggest complaint is the hot dog isn’t as big as the large bun. Lemonade is very good.More

Aloha, thank you for your review! We are glad to hear you enjoyed. Our buns have a little extra cushion at the bottom to help absorb the sauces and relishes- helping keep it a little less messy! Mahalo for your understand and we look forward...More
