It is what it is...and it is pretty yummy. A kolache with some fancy condiments. If you're looking for something quick & simple, check it out. If you're skeptical, share it it with someone!

Very yummy but quite expensive for a hot dog in a bun. Thought I was at a baseball game for the price. Other than the price worth it.More

We have to have at least one puka dog each trip. I think we have it down with flavor choices. With the polish dog, I chose mango & coconut sauces & jalapeño with the lilikoi mustard. It was the best yet. I had not been...More

We just needed a quick meal and chose this place. It was $26 for 2 of us to get a dog and lemonade. There was a veggie dog but we both had Polish sausage. Coconut, mango, pineapple relishes etc are options to have added. Great...More

I did not like it. I don't know if it was mayonnaise on the inside or not but I didn't like it. It was small. I shared it with a friend and had 2 bites.More

being from Chicagoland area we know a little bit about hotdogs and the puka dog did not disappoint. They have their own special sauces so be just to partake in the flavors.

The flavor explosion created by the combination of all the different sauces, relish and mustard is the best thing I never knew about. Puka Dog is a must try if you go to Poipu/Koloa area.

This time, on our third visit to the garden isle, we made it a point to have a puka dog while we were in Poipu. The third time was a charm, not withstanding a lunch time rush. The line moved efficiently as we anxiously awaited...More

Tasty Hawaiian style hot dogs - think very long jelly filled kolaches. Also fresh made to order lemonade. A bit pricey for hot dogs, but worth checking out.

Aloha, we bake all or our buns from scratch and make our sauces and relishes. The price of Paradise is high which causes high rent prices.. we aim to keep our prices as low as possible. Mahalo for your understanding!
