I like hot dogs and had read good things on TA but I wasn't overly impressed. The hot dogs need to be Costco size for that price. The lilokoi mustard was great though.

The hot dogs we ordered were slipped into the buns to eat with ease, no open seams! The pineapple relish was delicious over a sausage hot dog, in addition to mustard. What a great treat!

Puka Dog is a must stop on the island. It's located in a strip mall on the South Shore. Their dogs are so delicious and they offer a variety of awesome toppings. The mango relish is so yummy! These dogs aren't small, so go hungry....More

We went there today and it was so good! Try the Lilikoi Mustard! About $10 for a dog, but well worth it. Can't wait to have another!

We never miss going to Puka Dog when we visit Kauai. It's part of the experience. In fact, this time we went twice.
