    Want to try more than one relish, ask for them on the side. The spicy sauce isn't that spicy -- You can do it! Also don't be a fool....get the Hawaiian mustard.

    Get the Polish Sausage (Clearly), unless you're vegetarian. The Spicy option barely had any heat. The Coconut Relish was really good.

    Seriously delicious. The spiciest sauce is not that spicy, but it is delicious. Both the pineapple and mango relishes are awesome.

    Try the polish with mango or pineapple relish and some lilikoi mustard!

    This isn't a Hawaiian Hotdog. Awesome polish sausage in a fresh bun with a variety of relishes. Unique and a must have. Best of all, Papalani Gelato is next door.

    mango relish! light natural sweetness with a tang. if you like spicy, get the hot chili pepper, it's only about a 2.5 on a scale of 10. coconut relish is also good but much sweeter. amazing bun!

    The pineapple relish with their special mustard was awesome. The spicy polish sausage wasn't spicy at all. The lemonade was too sweet. I'd go back just for the puka dog.
