Took the wife and kids here during our stay by Poipu beach. Staff was super friendly. The buns are more like pockets and they use polish sausages. The different relishes were really tasty. My favorite was the mango. Aunties mustard was really good too. We...More

Stopped at this place with muy family for a quick lunch. Staff was friendly, food was just ok for the price and the seating was extremely limited for a place that is busy. Might as well go to Costco, much better value.

This place did not live up to the hype by Trip Advisor and others. Interesting assembly of the hot dogs, and full of customers, but just another hot dog in the end. A bit pricy and slow to boot.

Best dogs on the Islands. Been to this place every time we come to Kauai. Actually had to have two puka dogs the other day. Just delicious!
