HuHot: Crazy name, good food!

Went to this HuHot several months ago and haven't been in the area to go back. It was memorable though as I had never been to a restaurant with an open grill where you watch your food being cooked. I loved that you get to add every single ingredient yourself! They also let you go back as many times... read more

Excellent food and great service. Only complaint is that they took away the garlic bean sauce. Other than that, once you get your own recipe down, you can't go wrong!

This site is very clean, good food and has always been a good stop when i am in West Des Moines visiting relatives. Never disappointed It feels like an upscale version of other HuHots i have visited. Meticulous attention to appearance and cleanliness

Bland food, noisy atmosphere and dirty feeling/looking. Tried it twice but not again. It is a better plaxe for young families with noisy children.

Yes to making your own dish. It's fun and a good selection of ingredients. Get a bowl think of what you enjoy move to the sauces -bang your creation is ready to move to the round doughnut shaped grill for cooking. This is fun to watch as they flip and chop your food. Try it and you'll go back. Enjoy.... More

My family and I, (13 of us) ate here right before Christmas and really enjoyed our visit! We have eaten at other Mongolian grill style restaurants and haven't been as satisfied as we were with our visit to huhot. The selection of meats and vegetables were great, and the sauces were fantastic. I personally couldn't get enough of the mussels... More

The choices they have to choose from is awesome!! Lots of meat, veggies and 3 kinds of noodles. They have lots of sauces to choose from. You can combine your own or they have suggestions for you to try. They also have menu items if you don't want to do the grill. They have chicken nuggets for kids.

Busy but good food. Beef, chicken, pollock, spicy sausage, pork, mussels, calamari, Krab (spelled just like it was at the place), andd on Wed/ Fri shrimp - variety of meats available! Large selection of vegetables along with noodles, sauces and toppings! All you can eat for the main dish $12.99 + drinks, apps and desserts. Well worth it.
