It's a small restaurant, good for casual dinner. We had the pho and a japchae, both were delicious! The ingredients seemed fresh, service was good.

Delicious pho - we had the roast pork in beef broth. The fried egg rolls were a delight, too, as were the fresh spring rolls (nime chow) served with a tamarind sauce.

Black Pepper Pho is my go-to lunch, I love this place. The ambiance is casual, and it can be cold/drafty in the winter, but totally worth it because the food is so amazing. I am addicted to the steak Pho, it's incredible. I could eat it daily. I also love the entree-sized salad bowl with shredded chicken with that delicious... More

It seems that someone knows how to cook decent food but forgot to learn how to run a restaurant... Food was decent but not overwhelmingly so - portions are large but the price also reflects the portion size - they definitely need a smaller size, especially for lunch. On a lunch visit, it was rather cold inside - not the... More

The pho tai is not the best I have had but it was still good. Broth is not very complex but the fixings were fresh. The beef in the pho tai however was some of the best I have had in pho. Not only was it tender there was plenty of it. I kept thinking I was done with the... More

I eat a lot of pho at restaurants around the country. This one is not one of the best; indeed, the pho is tasteless and very average. And the prices are high for what you get. The staff definitely was not from any Asian country, and the cooking shows a lack of knowledge of how to make good pho. Worth... More

At first the price seemed a bit steep for a bowl of noodles, but because of their no tipping policy, it brought the bill down to reasonable. Nice outdoor patio, cozy inside. Pho was as good as most any pho, and perhaps a bit better. Wait staff friendly and efficient.

The pho at Black Pepper is very good. The broth is light with just the right blend of spices. The service is good. Place gets busy at meal times and space is limited.

With a shortage of good ethnic food in Boulder I have frequented Black Pepper Pho since they first opened. But sadly I have decided to no longer eat there because I've found pieces of meat in my food twice recently and too many times to forgive them in the past. In addition the service as of recently is extremely poor!... More
