One of the best places to get the latter is Porky’s Kauai, a mobile cart that has a mouthwatering menu of quick eats.

The other main draw is the awesome food. if you’re a meat lover, you’re sure to be thrilled with the selections as most of the rotating menu at Porky’s consists of beef and sausage hot dogs smothered with various tasty ingredients. A popular local favorite is the pulled pork covered dog that’s topped with chunks of spam, sauteed onion, and Porky’s own sweet and spicy barbecue sauce. The stand’s pineapple infused pork sausage is another delight that perfectly melds sweet and savory flavors. The pineapple relish placed on some of the cart’s dogs is incredible — you’ll wish you could go home with a jar of it.
Porky’s also offers pulled pork grilled cheese sandwiches, which kids typically love to eat. On occasion you’ll see beef burgers on the menu, plus Porky’s offers affordable combos that include a grilled cheese or sausage dog and a drink. The portions are so generous that you won’t find yourself hungry soon after eating your meal.
