A whole new concept for eating a hot dog. You won't find these dogs at the ball park, but should. You pick a relish, a dog, dressing ect. It was delicious. A must stop if you're on the south shore.

Tried a Puka Dog for the first time. We had to stand in line to get it but it was worth it. If you're in Hawaii you have to try one.

I wish they were everywhere. The bun with dog stuffed into a "puka." Genius! The Flavors that you can choose to have your dog dipped in. The combos are flavor adventures. I eat hot dogs only when at Costco usually. While staying at the Plantation...More

We had to stop after reading the reviews on Puka Dog. It did not disappoint. The hot dog or sausage which is what I chose to share with my daughter was delicious. Each option was stuffed into a bun that encompassed the entire dog. Each...More
