So different from the norm and works! Amazing burst of flavours with the first bite. Friendly service both times I went and recommend all to try when in the Waikiki area (I tried the food truck hot dogs).

We were devastated to go into the Food Pantry this week to find that Hula Dog is gone. They don't seem to be in the Ward Center anymore either. Feeling gutted, as we LOVED these hot dogs. RIP Hula Dog!

Who would think in a vending booth in a grocery store should have such good food. Loved my hotdog and the secret sauce. With how expensive everything is in the area this is a great meal!

I know this isnt the same restaurant Mr bourndain visited many years ago but the product is still fantastic. In saying that I had a couple of beers before hand. Hit the spot though. Grab the polish dog choose your spice and a relish. Enjoy.

I've tried several Hot Dogs and enjoy them all. I'm partial to Chicago Style. And I had to have a Hula Dog. It had a very "Island" taste and I liked it. Although it was difficult to find in Waikiki, I would definitely recommend trying...More

Hula Dog is located within the Food Pantry at 2370 Kuhio Dr., 96815. Had we not been intentionally searching for it, we wouldn't have known about it, as there's no readily apparent signage to direct you to it, or to the fact that it's located...More

Aside from being Polish Hot Dogs, the hot-dogs are over-rated and over priced. I don't want to sound like a diva, but I've hot dogs just as good in New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, the beach cities of L.A. and on and on and they didn't...More
