I heard a lot about and we decided to try it. The place located in the Poipu shopping village and is open from 10 am to 8 pm. The polish sausage is good but not worth the $8:49, the fresh lemonade was very good though.

I still dream of these hot dogs! My husband and I went here a few times during our stay on Kauai and the food was consistently delicious. We moved up to Hanalei halfway through our stay on the island, and on our final day drove...More

An absolute treat. A tube bun filled with your choice of dog (polish sausage, veggie), sauce (mild to spicy), relish (mango, coconut, banana, or pineapple), mustard (Hawaiian or traditional). And then there's the fresh lemonade. Oh my!

I consider myself an aficionado of hotdogs/polish sausage. I was blown away by the taste of the Puka Dog. I had the polish sausage with coconut relish - it was the best dog I've ever eaten. This place is not to be missed. I'll be...More

Go! It has something for everyone who loves hotdogs. Why we don’t always eat hotdogs like this I have no idea. Glad we stoped in.

Very unique hot dog. The buns are warmed on a grilling stick. You pick the sauce from several choices. We liked the pineapple sauce. You also pick your mustard. We chose the Hawaiian mustard. The sauce and mustard are poured in the bun and the...More
