Reviewed 28 August 2014 via mobile

Very unusual combo of ingredients, definitely a must try! Will go back on next visit! Area to small for number of people being served, but may be part of the charm!

“A HAWAIIAN MUST!!!”
Reviewed 28 August 2014

Puka Dog is located in a small plaza in Poipu - search for the Starbucks in the Poipu Shopping Village and it's in that plaza.
It's a oversized hot dog mix with a pigs in a blanket, filled with the hawaiian sauce/mustard of your choice, and served with a delicious lemonade. Great ambiance with seating for 15-20 people.

“YUMMY !”
Reviewed 27 August 2014 via mobile

Puka dogs are great - both meat and veggie dogs. Unusual delicious toppings to customer specifications. The fresh lemonade is also wonderful. Excellent customer service. I will go back again!

“New location in Hanalei”
Reviewed 26 August 2014

After a hike along the Napali Coast the family was tired and hungry. Stopped here for a quick bite. It didn't take long and we enjoyed our hot dogs as we have in Poipu on past trips to Kauai. The Maui chips and lemonade are good too....yum!! Worth a visit for something quick and a little different in a casual atmosphere.

“Pretty good for hot dogs”
Reviewed 23 August 2014

I would have liked to have been given some choices on sausage, but all they had was Polish or veggie. The sauces were delicious. The rolls were squishy. Service was friendly and very quick. Overall, this was a nice hot dog.
