We visited our college son and brought him here so he could eat something other than typical college faire. There is a variety of meats (beef, chicken, pork, lamb) and vegetables to select or have some of everything. The only limitation is the size of the bowl, although you can go back for second and thirds if you desire. The... More

I love that you can create your own dish and masterpiece while watching them cook it in front of you. Now that I write this, I can't remember if it's lunch where it's cheaper and you can take left over home but at dinner you cannot. Check before you go.

If you go to dinner at Hula's and you go away hungry, you did something wrong. This is a all you can eat (dinner only) restaurant. You take your empty bowl and fill it up in the buffet line with exactly the ingredients you want and the portion sizes you want. Even fire it up your way with Mongolian fire... More

I luv, luv, luv Hula's. I know when I go there I know I'm going to eat a good healthy meal. To compliment my meal I usually have some iced tea. Today was the usual routine. Until I tasted the tea...Yuk. I confirmed it was lipton instant. There's an art form to try and make that good. That was not... More

I've travelled quite a bit and eaten many different kinds of foods but have never seen anything like this. You choose your food from a buffet of meats, veggies and sauces and then take that to the cooks. They have a huge, what looks like cast iron, griddle that is about five feet in width and circular and you watch... More

What a great place for a freshly made dish! You choose the meat,veggies & sauce for your Chinese food dish. It doesn't get any better! What ever vegetables you like in your dish you put it in the mix....as much as you want. They will cook it on this huge wok. A must stop at for a tasty meal!

This is one of our "re visit" restaurants when we are in Chico. The food is always FRESH and the people are friendly and helpful. Great place to build your own meal and watch it being cooked right in front of you. You will not go away hungry.

I love how Hula's has a long buffet of food and sauces that you add to a bowl and hand to the cook. Then you get to watch your creation cooked on their large circular grill and returned back to you, piping hot. It's really fun and delicious

This is obvious by the name and delicious having a meal their. Bring the family you won`t be disappointed. Sometimes there`s a wait, but it`s worth it.
