Hula Hut ~ "Foodie" Friday 2/22/19

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker United Realtors® ~ 512.750.6899

There's a tropical paradise right here in Austin, TX that's been serving Austinites for over 2 decades. Today is National Margarita Day and guess whose serving Margaritas for $1? There is no better place to be tonight than my recommendation!




Hula Hut                          

Since 1995, the Hula Hut has been overlooking beautiful Lake Austin.  This is traditional Tex-Mex cuisine with a Polynesian twist that all culminates into the finest “Tiki-Mex” cuisine.  You'll have a great time relaxing to music ranging from traditional Hawaiian to surf rock in any of their 3 bars. Enjoy a Mango Margarita and dive into their lavish PuPu Platters.  The restaurant is decked out with tiki torches, bamboo walls, grass-thatched bars and thousands of colored lights. If there happens to be a wait for dinner spend some time at the Palapa bar while you're waiting with one of their specialty drinks and watch as the sun sets over the shores of Lake Austin...and relax it’s always island time at the Hula Hut.


A sampling of their menu: On the Snacks menu - there's Palm Tree Hugger Nachos - crisp corn tortillas topped with refried beans, carrots, spinach, zucchini, red bell peppers, mushrooms, Monterey Jack cheese, lettuce, pico de gallo & jalapeños...and...their award winning Kawaikini Stuffed Avocado with Hass avocados filled with roasted chicken, green onions, cilantro,cheese & green chiles then roasted in panko & green chile spices, lightly fried and served on Hatch green chile & queso blanco sauces. On the Five-O Fajitas menu there's Shiner Bock grilled fajitas - marinated, charbroiled & tossed with green onions & bell peppers...and...North Shore veggie fajitas with zucchini, red bell peppers, carrots, yellow squash & mushrooms sautéed in Polynesian Plum sauce & topped with sunflower sprouts.  On the Pipeline Enchilada menu there's Roasted Chicken Pipeline Enchilada with roasted chicken breast & Monterey Jack cheese rolled in fresh corn tortillas topped with queso blanco sauce and served with rice & refried beans...and...the Fajita Beef Pipeline Enchilada with grilled fajita steak & Monterey jack & cheddar cheeses rolled in fresh corn tortillas and topped with Guajillo sauce & served with rice and refried beans.  For dessert, try the Hula Hut Dessert Nachos - cinnamon sugar dusted crispas topped with fresh fruit, chocolate, caramel and fresh whipped cream...or...the Flan - caramel custard served on an almond praline-laced cookie & topped with caramel sauce.


If you can make it out there today, they're celebrating National Margarita Day with $1.00 margaritas!

Good morning Dorie. It appears that there is an endless supply and variety of food places in Austin. This one sounds great to me.

Happy Friday Dorie. The Hula Hut sounds like a fun place, especially on the weekends as people let their hair down and come enjoy the beverages/food.

Yum!  I am hearing a lot of veggies in the use of their dishes and that always makes me happy.

Hi Dorie... I must admit that Tiki-Mex cuisine is a new one on me. Your post reminded me of the Trader Vic's Tiki Bar and Restaurant in New York's Plaza Hotel, which has now been closed for many years... but I remember many a fun evening there in the 1960's and 1970's.

Hi Dorie- I think if I vowed to eat at all of the wonderful restaurants in Austin, I would have to take up permanent residency there.

Oh, what a fun place that sounds to be, Dorie - fun music in all of the bars and I'll have one of those mango margaritas with the stuffed avocado!  You have my mouth watering and it's nearly midnight!

Happy Friday!

Morning Dorie.

It's been about 3 weeks since I've had any Tex-Mex groceries.  After reading this, I think it's time again

Hi Dorie,
I would love sitting out on that deck enjoying a mango margarita (or two) and have some Tex-Mex with a Polynesian twist.  What a fun place.
