    The food at Hoop Dee Doo Musical Revue is excellent. Was just there on Mother's Day and can say the food is still as good as it's always been. Pork Ribs, Fried Chicken, Baked Beans, Salad, Bread, veggie dish and Strawberry Shortcake!! YUM!!:thumbsup:

    Haven't been to the Luau in over 10 years so I can't comment recently on the food. It looks like the menu hasn't changed all that much over the years. Last time we were there though the food was very good but I think it is better at HDDMR.

    Both shows at top notch but again I think the HDDMR is better.

    I'd love to go to Hoop Dee Doo but I'm a bit worried about the audience interaction :unsure: the food sounds good though. Chris will probably think it is completely corny but I think it would be good :)

    Chris wouldn't like it, they don't have French Fries. :taunt: You don't have to get caught up in the audience interaction Wendy. BTW for everyone else, the food is also all you can eat along with unlimited beer, wine, soft drinks, coffee and tea.

    Wendy - I hate audience participation but I love the Hoop de Doo, as long as you don't admit to it being an anniversary (they make you stand up and dance! :eek:) or a birthday they leave you alone. They sometimes will say Hi as they go past your table but really that is it. When they come into the audience to choose people to play the parts on stage at the end of the show (and you have to fit the part of the characters they need anyway) they discreetly come and ask so it would be very easy to say no. :)

    Oh I love both these shows :D

    The hoop dee doo is the better show and the better food too. It's been going since 1974 so they've had quite some practice! :lol: Hoop has always been seen by the actors as an improvisation show rather than a strict script and this can make for some very funny scenes :lol:

    The food has changed over the years. The corn was once off the cob, then on the cob, then went altogether. There's now a vegetable plate. The bread is now more like a cake and they've stopped putting water on the table :/ The wine has changed from beringer white zinfandel to some awful rose blend although the white chardonnay is just about still drinkable.
    The beans are now cowboy beans but the chicken and ribs are essentially unchanged. The mash is nice if you get to it whilst it's hot.

    The audience participation is light and easily avoidable for the most part. Even I don't mind it too much :lol:

    I was just there a couple weeks ago and I had already forgot about the mashed potatoes. Must have had too much Sangria. :bigwine:

    :lol: :lol: Chris said he's really not that bad, I make him sound awful :lol:

    I think he's forgotten that you've seen first hand what he eats :D he says he does eat other things besides fries :lol:

    Thank you Lisa and Keith, I think we might just go this year :)
