“Ono!”
Reviewed 5 November 2013

After a great swim at Poipu beach, we headed to Puka Dog. Yummo hot dog in a special bakery roll with mango relish, Lilikoi mustard and their special lemon garlic sauce! We'll be back!
Next time we will try the pineapple relish!

“Always great”
Reviewed 4 November 2013

The first and last place we always eat on Kauai! You can have a steak anywhere on the mainland....Puka Dogs require a trip to Kauai. Worth the trip!

“Try it!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Decent dog with exceptional toppings. I wish we had time to return to sample other combinations. The person in front of me in line said her mother makes a point of having local hot dogs where ever she travels around the world and that this was her favorite.

“Ok hot dog”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

I expected these to be great hot dogs, which is all beef. But the option is a polish dog or veggie...

Also, the relish options which are pineapple or mango as an example are not really relish, but a mayo type sauce.. Not what I was expecting for a hot dog

I would hold the relish unless you love mayo on your hotdogs

“The Best Hot Dogs in the WORLD!”
Reviewed 3 November 2013

Ahh Puka Dog ... we miss your veggie dogs with the hot secret lemon garlic sauce, mustard, papaya fruit relish ... the super fresh rolls and the fresh squeezed lemonade ... perfection

We are going back to Kauai to see more of the island and of course return to Puka Dog
