Fish tacos at Hula Hut



Where my Austin people at? Have you been to Hula Hut? I feel like that's a stupid question, because every time I go there, the rest of the city seems to be there are, as well. 

There are certain restaurants in town we totally take for granted and definitely frequent, but I never really think to post about. Hula Hut is one of them. It's a super busy Mexican restaurant (with a Hawaiian theme!) nestled in on Lake Austin, and it's always a fun, party-like atmosphere and consistently good food. And by consistently good food, I mean that the fish tacos I get 100% of the time I go there are always freakin' delicious. I used to try fish tacos wherever I'd go, but eventually I gave up since they were never ever as good as Hula Hut's, and who likes to set themselves up for constant regret and disappointment in life? Not I. 

So if you've never been, give 'er a try! I'd recommend going on slightly off-peak hours, though, because this place has a wait list a mile long sometimes, especially on weekends. I'd also recommend the "HuLaLa" (drink) which is as big as my head.  I have an abnormally large head, so that's saying something.

  23. You are making me WISH there was an AF base in Austin SO BADLY!! And not just so I could eat at all of the amazing restaurants you blog about, but also so we could officially become in-real-life BFFs. The world would be a better place if that happened, I've decided. :) Happy weekending, Jenni girl!

  24. Ok, I think I need another trip to Texas. Clearly I didn't spend enough time in Austin. Funny thing, you and Jen (Arizona Russums) both mentioned Hula Hut this week. Must be a must try.

  25. What??? You have a big head?
    I don't see that at all.
    You mean like ball caps don't fit?
    Because I seriously can never find a ball cap to fit my head. I have one that fits and two others that I freakin love, but can't wear. Well, I can wear them, but I can't raise my eyebrows or they pop off.

  26. When I lived in Austin (like a million years ago) this was one of my favorite places to go! I loved their fish bowls. So dangerous but so delicious.

  33. I could not agree with you more. Jimmy Hulas's has the best fish tacos!!! I also had the best blueberry mojito there recently as well. What's not to like??? Happy to have found your blog.
