“Unbelievably fantastic goodness”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

These hot dogs are what really make my trips to Kauai memorable. Easily the best tasting food I have ever had.

“Fun place to go!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Liked the hot dogs, sauces were okay. A little sweet in my opinion and lots of bun. We left at least a third of the bun but they were quick, the hot dogs were tasty and the staff were friendly.

“LOVE this place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

I normally don't even like hotdogs! Delicious salsa's and a fresh bun make this a scrumptious, quick meal. Ask for extra mango salsa on the side. The 'spicy' mayo is not spicy in any way shape or form so go for the jalapeño at least for a bit of added flavour. Friendly staff, limited seating. Beware the homemade lemonade…I watched them make one and oh boy there is about 1/3 cup of white sugar in just one...yikes!

“We dream of Puka Dog”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

Polish sausage with the spicy sauce, liliko'i mustard and mango relish - with extra mustard for dipping! We're not hot dog fans, but these are so special - crispy skin tucked into a bun with all those fabulous tropical flavors! And the hand shaken lemonade is the perfect addition to this fun, casual dining experience. We visit multiple times whenever we're in Poipu.

“Tropical hot dogs”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

For a great place for a hot dog, try a polish dog for lunch in Poipu with a twist. Puka Dogs put tropical flavors in their mustard and condiments and create a unique culinary experience: the Puka Dog. Their lilikoi mustard is especially good.
