Best of the HuHots

By far the best HuHot we've eaten at. Go early for lunch - the prices are better and you will avoid the large crowds- especially on weekends.

If you know about Mongolian Grill food, then this is a winner. Not top of the line quality but can't beat the price!! Loved it! Recommended.

We arrived before the big dinner rush. Selection was great, sauces offered were great. Is always nice to make your own choices and sure beats the grills that charge by weight. The price is good here and the service was good as well for all we needed.

First time at HuHot, kids have been before. Mongolian is not for everyone, but my mixture was great. The cooks have a process and do a great job.
