Delish sausage (that tastes closer to real good hot dog than sausage ) that come in mild, spicy and very spicy with a bunch of unique sauces. We tried one dog with pineapple sauce and another with mango. Both delicious. Equal in size to two hot dogs so you can share.

Ok, these dogs were good. However, I'm not sure if they were "good" because I couldn't eat Savage Shrimp for a 4th day without going into anaphylactic shock, OR because having anything more "mainland" was needed. Either way, the Puka Dog is made with a creative bun which fully encases the dog and is filled with a homemade (fruity) flavorful mustard. The dog can be chosen too, garlic or spicy. And, the relishes are also house made! If you are a lemonade fan and aren't afraid of a little (pronounced LOT) of sugar . . . indulge. Puka Dog is a good change of pace.

Our family of five adults mostly enjoyed higher-end dinners over our ten days in Koloa. But we had to try a Puka Dog before we left, so that was dinner one evening. While I wouldn't say it was a life changing experience, we enjoyed the unique flavors they offered at a reasonable price. The line of customers was clearly an indication that this is a favorite of many "doggie diners".

My son went here and picked up food to share with the family. Loved the hot dogs themselves, but I found the mango salsa a little sweet. Otherwise, perfection! Not healthy but very tasty!

Great spin on an old favorite! The only thing better than the dogs are the ice cold cups of fresh squeezed lemonade. A must do on the island!
