This seems to work for me:

(add-hook 'find-file-hook 'auto-revert-mode)

That will affect all files and file extensions. I can't see any reason
why it wouldn't work for just about any hook. Are you sure
foo-mode-hook is executed at all?

As a last resort, you can use something like this (untested):

(add-hook
 'find-file-hook
 (lambda ()
   (when (string-match "\\.foo\\'" buffer-file-name)
     (auto-revert-mode 1))))
