Sit out on the pier, sip on a mango margarita, and watch the cigarette boats churn through the water while you feast on delightful dishes. In case you think you are in Hawaii, you are half right, the point of this place, set beside Oyster Landing, is to give you a Polynesian feeling deep in the Texas Hill Country. If Polynesian Tex-Mex sounds like a contradiction in terms, visit Hula Hut to experience this wonder. You can feast on tacos and fajitas, as well as mahi mahi and Hawaiian chicken. The platters are ideal for sharing with friends.
Broken Spoke is a western honky-tonk that was established in 1964 and rapidly became an Austin favorite for country-western dancing. The “Spoke” is true country in a real dance hall with a real wood-plank floor. Watch cowboys and locals two-step the night away to live bands from around Texas. This dance hall provides an excellent atmosphere for those just learning to two-step or die-hard country fans driving in from the ranch for the weekend. Practice the Polka, Texas Two-Step or the Chicken, and be sure to try the Cotton-Eyed Joe. There is also a restaurant that serves traditional country food like chicken fried steak.
