¿Qué tal?

tal dictionary

Like most salutations they can be either an actual query or a rhetorical question.

What more interesting than its use by itself is its use given in our dictionary:

¿qué tal…? -> how…?

¿qué tal (estás)? -> how's it going?, how are you doing?

¿qué tal el viaje? -> how was the journey?

see the first link for more examples of this usage.
