Really good food here. Loved the ambiance and the menu. They were out of 2 of their most selling appetizers which was a let down. I would recommended this place but beware there usually is a wait for outside but if you chose inside, there's usually no wait. The flour tortillas are made in the house and you can see... More

Sat at a table for 10 minutes with no one even offering a menu. Went up to the bar and asked one of the waiters if someone would be by and they looked down their noses at me and said yes, someone would. Another five minutes and no one came by. Ended up just sitting at the bar and the... More

My son wanted to take me and his daughter here. An interesting and well decorated restaurant on Lake Austin. Sunset views are awesome here! I personally did like the food that much...too Hawaiian for me just didn't seem like Mexican food to me.

We ate at Hula Hut, on the pier overlooking Lake Austin. The views are great, you really feel like your at a beach hut with all the Hawaiian decor. I had chicken fajitas, they were delicious. The birds can seem pretty vicious out there looking for food so if birds bother you while your eating, eat inside.

Where do I start. Stopped in for a late lunch. No wait for a table. It was quite windy so we decided to eat inside. Waitress was very nice and knowledgeable. The food was great. We both had tubular tacos and they were delicious. Then when we found out the desserts are made from scratch daily, we decided to give... More

This was a great mix of flavors. I had never had Mexican style food with Hawaiian flavors. I had the Thai BBQ Chicken Fajitas. It was your basic fajitas but with Thai peppers, Thai BBQ sauce and served with other toppings and an amazing combination of plum sauce and peanut sauce. The best fajitas I have ever had!. The location... More

Sooner or later a "not so great" meal has to slip through even at one of my favorite restaurants to visit when in Austin. First of course, the QUESO was seriously great! The refried beans and rice were not as good as usual, nor the stuffed avocado- NOT HORRIBLE, just not as good as I remember. The atmosphere is really... More

On a nice day, this is a great place to kick back have a margarita and enjoy the view. Nice laid back atmosphere with prompt service.

Loved the location, the food, the drinks. Hula Hut is worth the short ride to this kitchy, fun, and delicious place. I had the Mermaid Water and the Totally Tubular taco with shrimp and spinach. My husband loved the fish taco as well. Loved the outdoor atmosphere and will visit Hula Hut again for sunset drinks and awesome food when... More
