Great afternoon snack or quick meal. If you mention a dining magazine you'll get a free lemonade if you order 2 hot dogs. The fruit salsa are amazing! You haven't tried a dog like these before! Well worth the stop! 1/2 the price of other food in the area, although, it is just a hotdog.

We ate lunch here because we didn't have the time to dine at Merriman's and really just wanted something light. Puka's array of dogs is impressive; husband had a simple dog with mustard and onions; I had a Chicago-style dog. Both were okay but no "wow" factor. We shared a bottle of water and ate outside on a table.

Service is friendly and low-key. You order at the bar, and stand around for a minute looking at the cute pictures on the wall. We did find the prices high but this is an upscale area of Kauai so it's expected to pay more than $5 for each dog.

Polish was good- too much bun and sauce for me though. Heck of a business there was a line 12 people long. Good lemonade

Not your typical hot dog vendor but that's the point. The exotic - island flavor - relishes make things really unique. Good real lemonade is available. You may want to couple this place with the gelato place next door.

Didn't think this was as good as what all the reviews said? $6.75 for a hot dog roll with a sausage and small amount of relish only on the end? Won't be getting ripped off again.
