Loved it!. Thought the sausage was excellent and I loved the choices of sauces. Sad there wasn't more time to go back.

We really wanted to try this place after watching an episode of M. Bourdain's show.
The dog tasted great - we tried the polish sausage with pineapple relish and spicy mustard.
decent enough size for a small meal or if you are craving a heavier snack.
the lemonade was fresh and tasty. There is one drawback, my hubby found a hair in his dog.
Granted, this could happen anywhere, no biggie, we asked for another dog.
Another customer behind us had a hair in her dog as well........I guess if you want to eat sausage you don't necessarily want to see how sausage is made.

Sorry, but they were too goopy and sloppy for me. Something more plain would be better. we had heard so much about it perhaps we were overly excited, but left somewhat disappointed.

If you think you have had a hog dog every way possible... think again. Puka Dog puts a whole new spin on the hot dog starting with the bun. Its a fresh baked Hawaiian roll - you know the sweet kind - and then they put a hole right down the center to drop your dog into! The bun is actually toasted from the inside and you have a choice of polish sausage or a vegetarian dog. Then next to the dog is INJECTED a garlic lemon sauce in your choice of 'spiciness'. Then they also inject a fruit relish - pineapple, mango, star fruit, just to name a few.

The result is nothing short of spectacular. It the most unique hot dog you will ever eat!
