“Rather eat Costco hot dog”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

Totally grossed out by this hot dog
1) Too much bun for the dog.
2) The vege dog tasted weird
3) Relish was overly sweet - no distinct differene between the mango and pineapple which we tried
4) Chicken feather in the hot dog 3 quarters into eating
NEVER AGAIN

“Yum”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Good for a quick snack, tried the tropical relish which was different but nice. My husband loves hot dogs and also thought it was quite good

“Hole-ee cow!”
Reviewed September 1, 2013

Wow, it's as good as they say. Can't believe no one thought to toast the inside of bun before what a great hot dog!

“Yum! Good dogs!”
Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

I am not a big hot dog fan in general but my son's friend raved about Puka so we had to try it. They offer very limited choices which means you get served quickly. Super friendly and helpful staff. The dogs were awesome. You must have their mustard. And the spicy sauce is pretty mild so give it a try too.
