A resort area restaurant that is 90% empty at 7 p.m. on a summer Friday was our first clue that Huo might not be a great choice, but we threw caution to the winds and decided to give this place a try. True, other restaurants seemed to be busy, but after all, TripAdvisor reviews were decent and some were even glowing in praise of this Chinese place. Perhaps their dinner crowd typically arrives a bit later in the evening.
Maybe it was a bad night. Maybe the regular chef was not working. Whatever the explanation, my son and I chose a single order of egg rolls, one order of lo mein and one order of beef with sesame and orange (all standard stuff from Huo's not very innovative menu). Service was fine and the presentation was as well. Unfortunately, nothing rose above "just OK" and both of us agreed that we would not order the same dishes again.
The above food, plus 2 beers came to $51, NOT including tip. Many shopping mall food courts have a Chinese place that can match the quality of food we had. . . .at less than half the price. Sorry, Huo's. Empty tables at 7 on a beautiful summer Friday evening? There just might be a message there.
In the hope that our experience was not typical, I will try Huo's again in the future.
