Staff very aware of safety measures to take with celiac and other allergies. A special "allergy bowl" is given to pick ingredients. The grill staff clean the grill with steel wool and use dedicated utensils to prevent cross contact. The main concern would be possible cross contact in the buffet of ingredients and sauces.

Don’t go to this location. I’ve been to other HuHot locations and they’ve been great. This one does not take allergy concerns seriously. I asked for a gluten free-specific bowl. It was the same as all the others. Also, small nitpick — they don’t allow rice on the grill, which means the only option is pad thai noodles.

5-7 years ago, my husband and I used to eat here all the time, and back then I would've recommended HuHot highly - it was my go-to GF restaurant. The staff was knowledgeable (and very friendly) and took great pains to avoid cross-contamination, GF items were clearly marked, and the quality of the food was good.

Due to Covid, we stopped eating out for a long while, and recently went back to HuHot for the first time in a couple years. When going through the line, I noticed that the icons on the sauces had changed - rather than being marked "GF," they just said "G." Since I have celiac disease and really cannot have gluten, I asked the staff (two of them standing together) if "G" indicated the item was gluten-free, or if it indicated that the item contained gluten. Their response: "Uhhhhh......I think it means gluten-free?" Not at all reassured, I moved on, and my husband, who was behind me, heard one of them say to the other, "Or, wait, maybe it DOES mean that it has gluten? Who knows." SERIOUSLY?!? He warned me about what he'd overheard, so to be safe I just didn't get any of the sauces at all, leaving me with a plate of plain veggies.

To top it off, a few bites into my already underwhelming meal, I found that several udon noodles had wound up in my food, even though they had prepared it following their allergy protocol (isolating it from the other food on the cooking block with spatulas, and using a different set of cooking utensils), so I was unable to even eat my meal. By that point, I had zero confidence left about any of their food, so I didn't bother going back to try again with a new plate.

All in all, this restaurant has changed from one I would recommend highly to one that I would avoid at all costs, and would warn all other people with celiac to do the same.

Very impressed. I figured out the menu of options and the cook spent 5 minutes prepping a spot on the grill that he cleaned 3 times to make sure there was no cross.. he used clean utensils and a clean plate to keep them from touching anything. It was a huge relief and was really appreciated.

They took good care to scrub the grill, but with the same brush they use to clean the surfaces. They have gluten free sauces, but I could visibly see where other sauces contaminated them. So I essentially just ate plain veggies and noodles because I was too afraid to use one of the sauces due to the cross contamination.

Would not recommend this place if you have celiac

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.

The food was great! Just a note of caution, the allergen list says egg drop soup is gluten free but my waitress said it wasn’t. I was a little nervous because all food is cooked on a big grill, but they clean it well if you have an allergy. I’m very sensitive to cross contamination and didn’t get sick. I would definitely go again. There was something for everyone in my family from my toddler to my husband and I, and we left full and happy.

Amazing! Check the allergen menu online. Almost everything in the buffet is safe to eat. The griller took extra care to not just wipe down the grill but sanded it down and then cleaned it again. Always a risk of cross contamination with a buffet but felt safe and didn’t get sick!

Tell them you have a gluten allergy and they'll give you a VIP bowl and clean the grill to keep things separate. There's still a chance of cross contamination so it's best to go when they're less busy

There are no cross contamination measures taken in the food line whatsoever. We went in for my birthday dinner tonight and honestly I was disgusted by the actual customers more than anything. Keeping mind that there was a person stocking the buffet at the time, witnessing everything and doing absolutely nothing about it, one lady had regular noodles on her plate, took some cabbage and put it on top of the noodles, her kid threw a fit so she took it off of her plate and put it back in the buffet container. Then there was a grown man using his HANDS to get noodles off of the buffet and touching everything else. Not that I would have gone back through, but the waitress never even asked how everything was going or if I would like another allergy bowl. I will say that the guy grilling did a very thorough job cleaning the grill once it was my food was able to be cooked. They can’t do anything about the disgusting buffet habits of other people that do not even think about what they are doing, the service still sucked. And given that an employee was standing there filling things up and did NOTHING about the contamination….. If you are celiac DO NOT RISK IT!!! People do not care enough about what they are doing.

Sitting at HuHot watching my family eat. Waitress offered to get me bowls from the back. I asked to speak with management or someone about getting the food from the back. A supervisor came to the table and stated they would get my vegetables, meats, and sauces from the back. When I stated I wanted to order only gluten free food, he went to get me a list. He returned after several minutes with a list of all the items that have gluten/wheat. I said I had no idea what items DIDN’T have gluten. He said he could get a list. Since my family already had been eating for several minutes, I told the supervisor to forget my order. I didn’t want my food to arrive as my family finished (and there was only one cook for a busy crowd). Highly doubt any meal could have kept from getting cross contaminated anyhow. What a disappointing and hungry evening.

Incredible! So many great changes.

Allergen menu clearly marked and provided by server. Sauces clearly marked by server to indicate gluten-free.

I was given a different colored bowl so the chefs knew I had an allergy.

The chefs completely and utterly deep-cleaned the grill so my food had a clean cooking surface.

I am so impressed! They asked us right away if there were any allergies and brought us a different colored bowl. Also brought us the allergen menu with all the sauces, foods etc. When the cooks saw us coming, announced allergy on deck. Two people did a thorough cleaning, scrapping of the grill and then brought out fresh plates and fresh spatulas. They basically quarantined our area. And they did this each time we came back for more.

This is a buffet style- make your own pad Thai - restaurant. I had to ask for new sauce from the back because I could see all the soy sauce dripped into the “gf” one. Then the chefs sauté everything on the same open top. Yes, if you tell them you are gluten free, they clear it and use new utensils but there is no way to avoid cross contamination. Everything here is contaminated. If you have a true allergy that makes you sick, I recommend avoiding this place.

I have Celiac and was very unsure about eating here. They give you a special bowl and alert the grill;who then cleans a special spot for when you're ready. They did an amazing job! Things were marked as far as sauces so I knew what was safe for me, but they do have an allergy menu for reference. Cross contamination is possible on the buffet(where u get your ingredients), im super sensitive and did not leave sick! We will definitely go back. Thanks for accommodating people with diet restrictions it really means alot to us when you really show great care and concern when we eat at you're establishment.

I was sceptical at first, but I asked the server if they would clean the grill prior to prepping the food, she said yes and also said that she would bring white bowls out to communicate gluten allergy. She the offered to go to the back to get my food fresh so that I wasn't using the food from the bar. I watches the grill guys clean the grill twice, change gloves, and get clean spatulas which they use to "rope" off your food so that those arevthe only utensils that are used. If you go to their website they have gluten free recipies for easy food selection.

I've been a fan of HuHot for years. However, had this been my first experience at a Huhot, I'd never have gone a second time. First off, I came with a friend on our lunch breaks on a weekday. There was us, and one other patron, in the entire restaurant. And the service was so slow that we were there 2.5 hrs! The biggest hold up was that this HuHot, unlike any others I've been to even in 2020, did not let you serve yourself, a staff member had to carry your bowl and put food in it. Except no staff seemed assigned to the food line, so you were standing around waiting for someone to notice you. And apparently the phrase "I just want a little" means a cup of whatever food item. Terrible way to run a buffet.

More importantly for the sake of this review--most importantly this app--for the first time in YEARS of going to HuHots, I was told the sauces are NOT WHEAT FREE!!! There was a big sign over the sauce station announcing that all the signature sauces were gluten free, as always. But after I told them I had Celiac Disease, they pulled out a spreadsheet that showed which sauces contained wheat and which did not! I have been to multiple HuHots in different states around the USA, and have been told multiple times that the signature sauces are made with gluten free soy sauce. I learned today that is not true!

The signature sauces are made with "very low levels of gluten", 20 ppm they claimed. "Only really sensitive people would notice" one person said.

Well that explains the times I left a HuHot feeling like I had mild food poisoning for the next day or so. That also explains why I didn't feel sick everytime: a lot of the sauces containing wheat were not ones I normally get. (I'm usually more about the curry, the thai sauces, etc.)

To be honest, I feel lied to and betrayed by the chain. And the very fact that staffers in different STATES have made the claim the sauces contain gluten free soy sauce would indicate the misinformation came from corporate. I plan to write to their corporate office with this complaint.

In summary, if you're like me, a sensitive Celiac, be very careful about which sauces you use, or mix your own. There are still plenty of foods a Celiac can eat, and they do a good job of scrubbing the cook top. But don't believe them if someone tries to tell you the sauces are gluten free.

Very exciting to be able to go out for Asian food during COVID and feel pretty confident about eating Gluten Free. I had a wonderful experience with knowledgeable staff and clear guidelines for allergy safe dining. I waited several hours after eating to post with confidence that I have not been cross contaminated or glutened. We will def be going back. One thing was that the sauces on menu state that they were all Gluten Free but when I arrived, I was told that had changed since COVID.

My experience before covid was good. I’m slightly less confident when the employees make my food. Before covid: they gave me a yellow bowl to mark it as a food allergy. When filling the bowl, I could ask them to get ingredients from the back fridge, that way I didn’t need to worry about other guests contaminating the buffet. The cooks would clean the grill off before grilling mine since they saw the yellow bowl.

I could not believe the level of care shown by the staff! (One of the cooks there had a family member with celiac) They made sure to clean a section of the grill off extra well and with special cleaning supplies each time I brought food up, and they have dividers to keep your food from accidentally cross-contaminating with other food on the grill. When they accidentally put my food on the regular grill while another cook was preparing a space (not realizing it was mine), they comped my meal. It was just very nice to have so much effort and care put into making me comfortable.

I am celiac and have had a bad experience here in the past. However, tonight I let them know what I needed and they were fantastic. They cleaned a spot on the grill and had clean utensils that were only used on my food. They also put up a utensil barrier around my food while it was cooking to keep cc out. It’s now much later and I feel good. I would eat here again.

Make sure you are checking the sauces that they have marked GF. On one side of the bar they had GF teriyaki sauce and on the other side it didn’t say GF. During covid they only had one side of the sauce bar open I asked for the GF teriyaki sauce and the manager argued with me that the sign on the other side didn’t say GF. When he went over there it was marked GF. He reported that they use the same sauce on both sides and it isn’t gluten free. They do a really good job of cleaning the grill and making sure there is no cross contamination when it’s cooked. I’m not sure if other Hu Hots have an actual GF teriyaki sauce, but I haven’t been sick at them like I have at the Joplin one. I chalked it up to cross contamination because of the sauces being so close together and sauces getting dropped in others, but now I know that it’s because the sauce isn’t actually GF.

HuHot has a great system for anybody who has celiacs or allergies. The waitress brought a paper with their menu and allergen information. The egg drop soup is great, and the Asian-style salad can be gluten-free if it’s ordered without the ramen on top. At the buffet, there are zucchini noodles and pad Thai (rice noodles). Some of their sauces are listed as containing wheat, but are processed to contain less than 20 ppm (gluten-free by FDA guidelines). They were also really good about cleaning and sectioning off the grill and using new utensils. If you are worried about cross-contamination, there is food in the back, and they also have a gluten-free tamari (soy sauce). The desserts are not gluten-free, but the meal was plenty.

Even though they offer gluten free options. When my family ordered some meals, the orders were so mixed up and wrong that I will not trust them for gluten free food ever again.

Do not trust these people if you have Celiac desease.

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!

These people didn't even know what gluten or cross contamination was! It was advertised that they would get fresh food from the cooler and clean the grill, but they had no idea what they were doing! I had to leave, which was disappointing, because I had been looking forward to eating here.

Server was very sweet & knowledgeable. She shared extra literature to assure I was selecting GF sauces and walked me through the process. You let the chef know and they double clean the grill right in front of you and use clean spatulas. Food was delicious!

Great awareness in preparing the food. The sauces are now confusing on whether they’re almost all safe, but I’m always able to find good stuff.

I used to be able to eat here safely with sauces marked accordingly. I went today and noticed the sauces we not marked any longer but I wasn’t worried. I ate the normal ones I usually do. I immediately felt sick and got a headache, which has never happened. When I asked the manager she said they weren’t allowed to mark the products as gluten free. The manager was not clear on what was safe of gluten free. I have literally never been so sick in my life.

Ask for the allergy bowls and they will go to a lot to keep your food safe. Safe sauces are NOT marked so do your research ahead of time.

I have eaten here many times without getting sick. It is a buffet so there is a chance of cross contamination from the line, particularly around the noodles. Look carefully when you are collecting your noodles or ask the staff and they will grab you a fresh tray from the back to pull from. When you get to the grill, let them know you have an allergy and they will clean the grill for you and divide your food from the rest while cooking. If you communicate tour needs, the staff is always quite helpful!

Most of their food is gf, all the sauces are gf, and when you tell the cooks you are gf, they do extra cleaning of the grill and mark a spot off for your food and use clean spatulas. I have eaten there twice and have not had a reaction. The first waiter explained to me to not to eat the rice, soy sauce that's on the table, sausage, and crab. The pad thai noodles are gf. It's nice to still be able to eat what I like there.

Waitress automatically brought out GF soy sauce, gold star service!
Not Celiac or wheat allergy friendly!
They give you a special bowl, clean the area, and I mean CLEAN! They use a wire screen and pad and take about 5 minutes and scrub. Plus use new spatulas and block other orders away. They are amazing!
