Humuhumu’s description

Hula Hut was for many years known as Chuy's Hula Hut, but Chuy's sold their interest sometime around 2011. They describe their food as "Tiki-Mex," and the location has more of a focus on general tropicalia than classic Polynesian Pop.

I have no idea what the place is like today. I was there in 1997 and thought the place was great. Good food and drinks. Sitting under a thatched tiki umbrella on a dock with a cool breeze blowing in off the lake. It's sad to hear the place took a dive.

I really don't like this place at all and don't think it should be considered for this website. It's basically a Mexican restaurant with a view of the water and some tropical decor. The drinks are mostly tequila based and I don't think their rum selection gets any grander than Bacardi, Malibu and Captain Morgan. Food with a Hawaiian flare includes fajitas with a couple rings of canned pineapple on top. Avoid if you're looking for an escapist environment or tiki drinks.

Is this a fun bar? Yes. Family friendly? Yes. Good food? Sure.

But is it a Tiki bar? No. Not at all.

Come for a good time with friends, with good food and good drinks... but don't come for a tiki experience.
