“Rivals Puka Dog”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Lots of unique toppings to choose from so you can have it any way you like. I would skip the chili though. Canned product that was doctored up. Soft buns and quality beef dogs were good on their own but wasabi mustard and cole slaw took it up a notch. The place was empty vs Puka Dog with a line out the door. Amazing what a little tv show can do. Puka is good but they don't have as wide a selection of toppings. Both are equally expensive for hot dogs.

“Don't miss these hotdogs”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

They are great. You'll want more. The buns are unique and there are many choices. The pineapple relish rocks.

“Great hot dogs and one of your best options for reasonably priced food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013 via mobile

Great variety of hot dogs. In my humble opinion- have aten at the other hot dog place in poipu shopping center (hint- starts w/ a P and is full of hype) and this place is much better.
