Hot Dog Journal: Hawaii's Cadillac Dogs

Beachside stand serves a good chili dog

By Jeremy Selwyn

I spotted this hot dog cart at Makaha Beach while driving up the west side of Oahu. The vintage Cadillac and sign caught my attention, but I had eaten some garlic shrimp from a truck just a few miles back, so I wasn't determined to eat anything until I read the tempting menu.

Here's the car and cart, parked right across the street from the beach.


First question in my mind: Just a hot dog cart, or something special here? I read the hot dog menu, then asked the proprietor some questions. When he told me the Redondo dog was locally produced, I didn't see any way to resist.


I opted for the Renondo Chili Cheese Dog. You can't see it here through the homemade chili and cheese, but the hot dog itself was bright red. A little bit messy, and very tasty!


Cadillac Dogs offered beverages as well, but for mine, I walked a few feet over to the adjacent Surfah Smoodeez truck. Got a strawberry Shave Ice. Huge, and very good.


They overfilled the cup just a bit!


Did I mention the amazing location? This place is a bit off the beaten path, about 35 miles from Honolulu, with none of the crowds or traffic. And this is the beach directly across the street.


Not a big hot dog fan? There are a few other things on the menu!
