Wondermade at Sanford Kentucky Derby

Wondermade will be serving up some of their delicious Marshmallows and you can be the first to try one of their newest additions, Ice Cream Sandwiches coming soon to their new expanded location!









Our menu is small by design because we want to give every item the attention and focus it deserves. Our knives cut meat and vegetables, never corners. Using the finest ingredients is important to us. We use handmade rubs. The best spices money can buy. Meat sourced from familiar farms, time and again. Pasture raised beef. Pork with no added hormones. All natural chicken. Everything’s fresh, hand selected and hand prepared. Our brisket spends up to fifteen hours in the smoker. Heck, even our mac cheese takes four hours.

We do it this way because we love it. We do it this way so you’ll love it.


Most profitable food truck franchise to buy

A Hula Dog from a Kona Dog Food Truck is a premiumquality hot dog, sausage or veggie dog, served in a mini loaf of soft sweet bread, that has been pierced and toasted from the inside, and then filled with your choice of our unique Hawaiian Garlic Lemon Sauce, Hawaiian Fruit Sauces, and Tropical Mustards or choose from traditional styled condiments.

The unique flavor combination of Kona Dog is pure paradise… and truly brings “Aloha” to the mainland!
