We've been craving a great hot dog, but Sumo dogs does not have a regular place or schedule. They are supposed to be at the Maui swap meet every Saturday, but weather or special events will keep them away. Luckily they were finally at theMaui swap meet, so we gave them a try, we all chose the spicy Maui onion... More

Happened upon this food truck run by a lovely family at the stock car races outside of Kihei on a Saturday night. Loved the spicy onion sumo dog which was presented in such a unique way. The bun was filled with liquid goodness and was an unexpected surprise. I am not a fan of the Japa Dog but this hotdog... More

The truck was in Lahaina for 4th of July. I enjoyed my spicy onion hot dog. I was in the mood for something different. I'm glad I tried it.

I found these guys at the Fourth Friday event in Kihei. I've sampled quite a few tasty treats among the trucks over the years, but this was a rare one that I really lusted after the day after. I had the Lilikoi Tropix dog and my buddy had the Sweet Maui Onion. They were huge and delicious. An interesting twist... More

This was the BEST Hot dog I've ever had, they have 4 different selections Upcountry Guava, Maui Mango, Lilikoi Tropix and Spicy Maui Onion. I've tried them ALL and they are all delicious. The owners provides excellent service. I can't wait to return to Maui... More

If you ever had a Puka Dog on Kauai, this is pretty much the Maui version and it is just as good. Sumo Dogs is in the same restaurant as Just Wing It in Kihei and for $8.99, you get a sumo dog with two sides which are kim chee and potato mac salad. The potato mac salad was good... More
