    Unforgettable hot dogs. The mustard they use is just so awesome. Not your typical hotdog sandwich.

    Super amazing quick eat located in a shopping plaza that also doubles as a time machine back to the 1970s. This is a positive thing

    The "salsas" were so sweet, it was like having jelly on your hot dog.

    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.

    They also offer vegetarian dogs. Either way, do coconut relish & lilikoi mustard. 🌺

    The lilikoi relish is tangy and sweet just perfect. Try the fresh lemonade, and Maui onion chips! 😃

    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!

    If you go by this place, you must stop and have a Puka Dog. Watch out, the line can be very long if you go by during lunch time.

    The chile/spiciest sauce isn't very hot. If you like heat, don't hold back; be sure to get the chile over jalapeno.
