This place is just awesome. I'd never had a hot dog with jam options and sauce options and heat (spiciness level) options. My friends and I had fun trying different variations the many times we ate here during our stay on Kauai. We loved saving...More

If you like hot dogs with a wide variety of relish options then you will love Puka Dogs and I can recommend the veggie dogs though the wait increases as they only cook these to order. From around noon onwards the lines are very long...More

Puka Dog offers an unique "hot dog" with sausage or vegetarian options. The individually packaged buns are placed on a "spike" providing a jacket for the grill cooked sausage. 4 sauces with escalating levels of "heat" (diner's choice) are "injected" into the bun around the...More
