Ate there twice in one week. Really great pork chop and the pho was tremendous as well. Hidden gem that is well worth the effort to discover. Family run and you can tell they take great pride in what they do. Go visit !!

I visited for a late lunch, so hardly a busy time. Still waiting for the first hello, let alone service - 15 minutes after sitting down.
