If you have made it to Kauai, then this is a must stop for attraction as you will not get this experience anywhere else in the world. First, these are not hot dogs, they are an exquisite perfectly charred on a grill Hawaiian foot long...More

Was good but it's a hot dog in a big bun. The bun was overwhelming. Have to give it to them though, the sauces were unbelievably good

I'm not a huge fan of hot dogs, but Puka Dogs are a different story! I am a really picky vegetarian and my husband is not, so we often struggle to find somewhere where we will both like to eat. Puka Dog had a vegetarian...More

I thought this was a food truck from what I read but now it is more of a courtyard restaurant in a small shopping mall area. Good dogs though! Their hot dog buns are cool because they cover the dog everywhere except the very top...More
