“Big Dogs”
Reviewed July 12, 2014

This was in the PoiPu shopping center. Very busy but pretty quick service. Hot dogs were good but not for the money, 6 bucks +. felt like a tourest trap.

“A tasty inexpensive lunch”
Reviewed July 11, 2014

A tasty inexpensive lunch. Polish sausage are good and really hit the spot, for not too much money (relative to Kauai). I liked mine with pineapple relish and the lilikoi mustard. Thought about giving it a five, but the veggie dogs were just OK, and the roll (that serves as a bun) could have been more interesting (basically just decent white bread).

“Had to try a Hawaiin Hot Dog!”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

A really cool concept of a Polish sausage with sweet relishes on a Hawaiin sweet roll poked thru the center.

“Wanted to experience”
Reviewed July 10, 2014

Based upon the reviews, and hopeful for a meal that didn't cost our family too much, we went to Puka Dog. We all enjoyed the lemonade but for the hot dog itself, it was overly sweet and goopy. We would have liked it more if the fruit relish was freshly chopped fruit, versus being more of a processed sauce. The Hawaiian mustard was nice.

“Super yum”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

Loved the dog served with pineapple, spicy mayo, and Auntie Lilokai's mustard. Yum. Fresh squeezed lemonade, amazing. Great, fast meal.
