Opening in the early 90's Hula Hut has been Austin favorite during good weather with its twin bars that extend directly over the water. A boat dock seems to twist into the bar area itself, pouring a steady influx of wake boarders during the summer months. The combined ambiance of swim suited patrons and a "Palapa" bar triggers the sensation that you're actually on the beach in Mexico. And of course that leads to a consistently hip spot to catch a bite and drink during any sunny day.
The Menu at Hula Hut in AustinThe Hula Hut menu blends flavors from Mexican and Polynesian cuisines to form what they like to call Mexonesian. Favorites on the menu include Tubular Tacos, Coconut Fried shrimp, and Pu Pu Platters common in the "homeland" of Hawaii. And while those may temp your tummy if you're willing to wait for a table, the most compelling reason to visit may be the free chips and salsa available from a "serve yourself station" at the bar while you wait. Quite possibly Austin's top salsa, many a visitor will have already filled their tummy on this delicacy by the time they ever get near splitting the enormous tubular taco. But, be careful. The salsa appears to some to be a ploy to encourage a faster pace at the bar; where if you could get drinks within a reasonable time, it can add up quickly.
