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.

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.

Lei Low in Houston!!! These people know what they doing!!! I just thought I'd throw that out there for all the kool kats and kitten in Texas. You can always look me up for a drink at my backyard tiki lounge if you're ever in the area as well.

Hula Hut is a restaurant and bar but not a Tiki Bar. The decor is Tropicalia, and not Tiki even though there are lots of Tiki's there. Someone else said that there aren't many Tikis here, but maybe they got more since then. I love the decor, it is fabulous. Lots of Tiki decor mixed with other things that are tropical but not Tiki. The decor is reminiscent of the Mexican Caribbean with oilcloth tablecloths, palm trees, tropical flowers, grass umbrellas, thatched roofs, with nice hula girl figurines and Tikis. The deck is fabulous because it's on Lake Austin. The food is OK, but the Fried Avocado Tacos on Tuesdays, are divine. The menu has Mexican dishes, American food, and dishes with a tropical flair, like Coconut Shrimp and Mango and Cream Cheese Quesadillas. The prices are very reasonable. When I am there, I feel like I am on a tropical island, so I love the place. The bar has a few Tiki drinks on the menu but the rum is run of the mill and they don't know what Falernum is. Not a Tiki bar, but a decent restaurant and bar, with fantastic atmosphere.
