I took my family here on a Sunday night. The food was good as always but the sanitation was suspect. We were seated at a table that was not fully cleared and the floor was filthy underneath our table. In addition, the buffet area was in need of some TCL. It was almost too much to take. I will seriously... More

Good food. Selections are great. Just grab a bowel and fill it with 8 or 9 kinds of meat, 3 kinds of noodles, lots of different items on the fixens bar and sauces to many to count. Hand it over to the Mongolian's (Hispanic Mongolians) to grill it, they plate it up and you are off to your table to... More

We met several family members for a Sunday evening meal. Hu Hot is a fun atmoshere with the all-you-can-eat benefit for the hardy appetiite. The service was good and the food was at its usual level of quality. Drinks were warmer than we prefer. The make-your-own style is fun, but HuHot is not good for a totally relaxed meal, and... More

First time eating there. If you like that kind of food its a neat place to try. The meat selections were pork ,beef, chicken, sausage, fish ,and crab. they had a lot of greens and vegetables. They have many different sauces to choose from. Watching them run the grill is pretty cool as well.

I love the different sauces you can choose from and the food is fresh off the fryer. I wish they sell shrimp everyday instead of 3 times a week

On my last visit with my husband I had a reward which I wanted to use and since am a vegetarian they gave me a dessert instead of starters or appetizer which... More

We love to visit HuHot! Everyone can put exactly what they want in their dish and try various food/flavor combinations. Staff is very friendly. It can be a bit crowded around the grill at busy times, but it's always been a fun dining experience for us.
