We love HuHot! It feels like such a healthy choice with lots of options for meats and especially for veggies! The sauces may have "hidden calories" but the food is fresh and delicious! Do ask the waiter to deliver the bowl of rice to your table when you return from the grill -- or the rice will be cold by... More

This a healthy place to eat. You "pile" your plate with noodles, veggies and sauce and then the cooked fry it for you in a flash.

Personally, I hated it. The waiter was ok, kind of slow and the place wasn't even busy so I'm not sure what his excuse was. He seemed almost annoyed. The meats are frozen and the chicken does not look like chicken(kinda scary to me, but I may be picky about my meat). The cook literally grabbed my food and poured... More

My 10 year old son LOVES Huhot. He wanted to eat there for his birthday dinner. There were 6 if us and they sat us quickly. Our server, Julia, was amazing. She was friendly, helpful and beyond kind. My husband drinks a lot of water with his meal and she impressed even him. The food was well cooked even on... More

Been here several times. A good value for what it really is. Face it, this is a buffet plain and simple. It comes with all the benefits of a buffet such as cross contamination, less than fresh ingredients. I laugh at guests raving about the krab (spelled with a k) for not knowing what it really is. The meats are... More

Love to eat here especially Tuesday and Thursday as they have shrimp as a meat option. Staff is very friendly! Has been times where the sauce island is not clean tho. This is definitely a place where you can eat by yourself and not feel uncomfortable.

You mix your foods together but they all end up being sauteed on the same plates that were used for other foods. Not good if you are allergic to something (shrimp), don't eat foods for other reasons (pork) or don't want strange after-flavors. Not good for vegetarians as foods end up mixed with meat/fish products.
