We love a good hot dog. We heard the Puka Dog place closed with International Marketplace. Any other places for them?

        they';re from kauai?

        also, they changed their name to HULA dog awhile back. a report on yelp from a few days ago says they have a truck in haleiwa? i think they are still in waikiki somewhere.

          The original founders started in Kauai, expanded to Oahu, then divorced and split the business. One kept the name and does business in Kauai, while the other stayed in Oahu and rebranded.

            Saw that on their website. They have a truck more north and have a downtown location. I've now added them to my files for a grab and go option.
