World famous Pink's Hot Dogs has come to Hawaii and it is a bit off the beaten path.  In fact you need to take a drive to Sea Life Park in Waimanalo to enjoy these legendary Hollywood Dogs.
I like the drive along Kalanianaole Highway on Oahu's East shore.  It takes about twenty minutes to get there from Waikiki but take your time and enjoy a few stops and the views along the way.  Once you hit Makapu Point, you will see the entrance to Sea Life Park on the left.  Drive in the entrance and pay the $5 parking fee.  The $5 will be refunded when you return to the parking attendant with your Pink's receipt.  From here it was a bit of a journey to find Pink's.  We approached the entrance to Sea Life Park and there was a bit of a line.  We simply walked in and went the only way you could - through the Shark Exhibit.  We came out of the Shark Exhibit and found some Turtles bathing in the warm Hawaiian sun.  We looked around and could see no sign of Pink's Hot Dogs so we asked an employee for directions.  She said that we were supposed to have gotten wrist bands at the entrance.  The wrist band allows you to spend one hour at Pink's which essentially is entrance to the park.  This is a great way to get into Sea Life Park without paying the $30 entrance fee.  We found Pink's inside the Beachboy Lanai and at noon the place was fairly empty.  Could not help but think why the heck did they put this place in Sea Life Park.  If it were in Waikiki the place would be packed with Asian tourists who would love to experience Pink's Hollywood Hot Dogs.  
The first thing you notice at Pink's is the great photographs of the Hot Dogs and the prices.  These Dogs are not cheap.  We paid $9 to $13 per dog plus another $3.50 for a drink.  I ordered the Chili Cheese Dog ($8.99).  This Dog was large and delicious.  I liked the snap and flavor of the Hot Dog and the bun, chili, cheese and onions.  The Chili is delicious and perfect with this Dog.  I would definitely come back and pay $9 for this Hot Dog.  Simply delicious.  My Daughter and her friend went for the Bacon Chili Cheese Dog ($11.99).  They both seemed to be in Hot Dog Heaven and said they loved the Dogs.  The Millennium Dog ($12.99) had great flavor according to my Wife.  She liked the heat from the jalapeños that are inside the hot dog.  This Dog includes Guacamole, Chili, Lettuce, Tomato and Onion.  Kind of like a Hot Dog Taco my Wife said.  Got a little messy and she ended up using a knife and fork to finish it.  The big disappointment of the day was the Chicago Spicy Polish Dog ($9.99).  This Dog was tough and very chewy.  We ordered this Dog just to try it and I wished that I would have saved the ten bucks.  As we departed the park at an exit adjacent to Pink's, we found that we had entered the park in the wrong place.  There were two ladies in front that were not here when we arrived.  They were the people who give wrist bands to enter the Park and Pink's.  They thanked us for visiting and we got our $5 back from the parking attendant.  I love the Pink's Chili Dog and drive out here.
