The Hole Dog Mon, 03/9/09 7:28 AM (permalink)

I have a coffee shop in Oklahoma and I am thinking of adding some sort of premium hotdogs, veggie dogs, or sausages  to the menu to keep business coming by after the coffee rush in the morning. I really like the idea of the "Puka Dogs" in Hawaii because they are very different and would seem to be alot less messy for a drive thru. Does anyone know if this has been done on the mainland? Or does anyone have any other ideas for a drive thru coffee shop?

    It may be less messy but it's also harder to get chili, grilld onions and other thick condiments into.  Works so well in Hawaii because it's not a drive through and they fill it mostly with loose condiments and salsas.  You just decrease the amount of things you can do to make a great dog.  Personally I think messy is good.

      A good quality hot dog and a couple good toppings.

      chili
      hot onions
      sauerkraut
      relish
      mustard


      The best suggestions is to find out how the hot dogs are served in your area.

        I have many ideas, none of which is a Puka dog in Oklahoma Coffee Shop drive thru.
        Chicken Fried Steak sandwich with chili as a top
        Fried Pork Loin Sand.
        Fried Bologna sandwiches
        Half Smokes with your killer Chili sauce
        Fried Catfish sand.
        Think crave food!

          There is lots of talk around here somewhere about Puka Dogs and how to make and toast the bun. Not a easy deal.

                  What is Pork Roll? - The History of Pork Roll
                  What is the difference between Taylor Ham and Taylor Pork Roll? The proper name according to the manufacturer is, "John Taylor's Original Taylor Pork Roll, " but many of us in Jersey call it "Taylor Ham." Think of it as Kleenex is to tissues, Taylor Ham is to Pork Roll.
                   
                  According to Eric of Taylor Provisions, people use the two names interchangeably. We also asked him about Taystrips, and he said they have not been manufactured for many years and have no plans at this time to do so in the future. 
                   
                  The name debate seems to be between North Jersey locals calling it Taylor Ham, and South Jersey and Philadelphians calling it "Pork Roll."
                   
                  From Wikipedia
                  Taylor ham is the common name for pork roll, a food developed by John Taylor of Trenton, New Jersey, late in the 19th century.
                   
                  Taylor is the brand name for pork roll made by Taylor Provisions, Inc., of Trenton. Taylor also manufactures pork roll under the Trenton brand. Trenton by Taylor has been an advertiser on the outfield wall at Mercer County Waterfront Park in Trenton since it opened in 1994. Other companies making pork roll include Kohler Provisions and Loeffler Gourmet.
                   
                  The product is generally eaten sliced and grilled, like Canadian bacon. A slice fits neatly on a round roll, and it is frequently eaten as part of a breakfast sandwich, most often also including egg and cheese.
                   
                  Pork roll generally comes in one-, three-, and six-pound sizes, as well as six-ounce boxes containing eight single-thickness slices or four double-thickness slices. The product is seldom available for retail or restaurant sale outside of New Jersey and adjoining areas like Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. However, a message board posting in 2004 showed that Taylor ham had been located at a supermarket in Valdosta, Georgia. There are also marketers selling pork roll on the Internet and shipping it around the United States.

                    Why not keep it neat & simple and listen to all the advice here. Puka dog might not appeal to all food cravers.
