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.

Tapping those damn utensils drove me crazy. That is ALL. Having imitation seafood sucks. The cooks don't speak English. Don't ask me for more

I have eaten at this Companies restaurants before, but it has been a while. The process is that you gather up the ingredients for your meal, first the meat(s), then the vegatables or even fruits, and then the sauces for the dish. It is a well planned restaurant where you can actually watch them cook your food. The service is... More

This time we took my dad and he absolutely loved it! He had fun picking all his raw food and watching it being cooked on the grill. I will... More

I was visiting Iowa staying in the Clive area on business. We had dinner here one night because it was close to hotel. It was great! You can pick your meat...veggies and sauce. I will for sure go back next time. You really can't go wrong with any choice. Enjoy!

So, first off I rarely will write negative reviews esp when it deals with wait staff but this one takes the cake. My husband & I are very forgiving & easy to get along with as well. We also have a very long experience with Hu Hot starting in Missoula, MT & have eaten at many across the country. We... More
