Chuy's Hula Hut
The Hula Hut serves large portions of Tex-Mex cuisine with Polynesian touches (typically involving pineapple slices), often accompanied by pitchers of margaritas made with freshly squeezed lime juice. Menu items include everything from macadamia-crusted Mahi Mahi to chile-rubbed salmon tacos. The dining area is on a straw covered pier over Lake Austin, on the western fringes of the city where the Hill Country begins. With a kitschy, casual South Pacific theme, the Hula Hut caters to mostly tourists and college students.
