They are very careful with any allergen. They give you a specific colored bowl. They figure you will only put in what you can have in your bowl. The cooks see the bowl color and as you are approaching the grill, they clean a space and place separators to prevent any cross contamination.

This was such a neat experience. Everything is make your own and if you have an allergy they will section off and clean the grill for you. Mention it to your server and they give you allergy bowls to signal the grill masters to clean off the grill.

I’m not sure if I’d trust cross contamination simply because of the buffet style ingredients, but the cooking is cleaned off right in front of you and they put bars up to make sure nothing touches it once cleaned.

I have a dairy allergy with a gluten sensitivity so this was perfect. I will come here again in a heartbeat.

This restaurant is fantastic and they are very knowledgeable. They give you a different colored bowl to signify your allergy, and the cooks scrub the grill down for your meal. I love this place!

This restaurant is so safe for people with food allergies! They take all the necessary safety precautions and more. When I sat down I talked to my server and I was pointed to a separate stack of yellow bowls that indicate to the chefs that you have food allergies. Every time I walked up to get my food cooked they already had the area prepared. They first clean the grill extra super well and check that I’m comfortable with it, they set out blockers to separate the grill from everyone else’s food, and they use compete separate serving/cooking tools.

It was amazing experience eating here. The chefs took above and beyond safety precautions. I never was left feeling weird or needy for needing extra safety precautions. The second time around of getting my food the grill was already prepared to the safety standard of what I need. I definitely recommend this place!

This place is amazing at making sure everything is clean, grill is shinny new, and the things that have gluten are far separated in the buffet line. They asked me every time if the grill looked clean enough for me. Huge plus is all the sauces are gluten free. They give you separate plates to identify the allergy.

This has been the best experience eating out - ever! Every person in the restaurant was mindful, respectful and polite about my needs. Never once did I feel I was a bother! There was a trainee cooking - and I heard 3 times (just while I was standing there ) not to touch or mix any food or utensils with my food - and no one rolled their eyes at me ! Thank you HuHot for a wonderful experience.

I have Celiacs and had a great experience here. I came during a slow time and they gave me a separate colored bowl and let me know what I could and could not have. I noticed that some of the noodles crossed over into the gluten free noodles so I avoided that section altogether. The cook cleaned a spot for my meals on the grill, sectioned it off and used newly clean utensils. I did not have any adverse reactions but please be aware that it is in a way a buffet, as you the veggies, meats, noodles and sauces are all out for everyone to add what they want so there is the potential for cross contamination.

They thoroughly clean the grill and ask if you are satisfied with it before they cook your food on it. You also get a colored bowl to specify you have an "special diet" so the cooks know. They never treat you like you are inconveniencing them.

I’ve been here a few times and always love it! Ask for an allergy bowl and they’ll give you a special yellow bowl to fill with your desired ingredients. You can choose whatever you like and everything is that is gf marked. Sometimes it’s marked with a “G” which confused me at first, but means gluten free. They also have recipe cards at the beginning of the line including a few gf recipes you can try!

The employees are very knowledgeable about allergies and I never have to ask them to clean anything. They see my yellow bowl and immediately clean and section off the grill so my food does not come into contact with anything else on the grill.

So this restaurant has notes in the menu (and in the bathrooms) about their various allergy protocols… they all sound nice, but fall short in practice. If you have any allergy, they’ll clean and reserve a section of the grill, and pull food direct from the kitchen to avoid cross-contamination. (yay!) And then the grill chefs toss the food all around and scrape their spatulas on the same gluten-covered surface where they scrape all of their other food. And really, how clean was that grill anyway? If you’re sensitive, this place seems like a disaster. Also, the food wasn’t very good, but that’s a whole other conversation…

Celiac-They do a great job with trying to accommodate allergies. If you have allergies, you can ask for ingredients from the kitchen which aren’t cross contaminated, but it definitely makes you feel like a burden. You have to wait for your server and have them bring you out fresh ingredients. They seemed very short staffed, so you’re taking up a lot of your servers time when they have so many tables to manage already. They don’t offer gluten free noodles, so you can only have rice as the main ingredient, but they do offer brown or white rice. They go through a great effort to clean the grill and section it off when you give them your plate. They scrub it down hard! Allergy plates are designated with orange bowls rather than blue bowls for everyone else. The risk of cross contamination is still big and I regret taking that risk because I am SO sick. I appreciate their effort, but the burdensome feeling and risk of cross contamination aren’t worth it in my opinion and I sadly won’t be returning.

They wouldn't take ingredients from the back for me, so even though the grill was clean and they used clean cooking utensils, I wasn't able to eat due to the clear cross contamination on the buffet line -- even during an off time. Might have just been the staff working at the time. But, I don't plan on going to another Huhot. Man, it sucks to go to a restaurant with a group and not be able to eat.
