Were browsing the shops and stumbled upon Puka Dog. My wife and I shared a puka dog and lemonade. First, they start with a large, more closed style, sweet Hawaiian bread bun, you choose polish or veggie (we chose polish sausage), then choose 1 (or 4) spice levels from a sauce, choose fruit topping (coconut, mango, pineapple, banana....selected pineapple) then...

Good hot dog, interesting Hawaiian flavours. Worth a try. After being in Iceland, nothing can compete with their amazing hotdogs. After a long day of hiking and swimming this was a lovely treat.

Felt since the condiments are varied , I'd try another type this year. It is a verry populal little hole in the wall with very limited seating. This time I added the following condiments to the Polish Sausage. Mild sauce, coconut beach filling, and Lilikoi mustard. It was very tasty.Still felt a little over $8.00 which included tax was a...

They offered two kinds of hot dogs, Polish and vegetarian. Which turned out to be a good deal for us as we are vegetarians. It was a long line but it went quickly. We serve a conversation with another couple who invited us to sit down and join them and that turned out to be a plus. In fact they... More

This place was on my list of "best of...." places on Kauai and it took me 3 trips to get here but I finally did and it was worth the wait. It was fun reading the menu and how to order and selecting the hot dog and all the condiments and add ons. It did not disappoint. I love a... More

The dog was good but it was over priced. Had choices of various sauces. For 1/4 the price Costco has a better dog.

My wife and I each tried different stuff and it was all very tasty. Very different from a standard hot dog but I would recommend trying one just for the experience!
