This ain't Pho! Don't go here if you crave real vietnamese Pho- the broth if you can call it broth is like dishwater. It's murky and tasteless! The meat used is subpar and nothing resembles real soup. Service is rude and crude. Don't bother- your cup a noodle soup at home is better

The menu consisted of a wide selection - including pho/soup noodles, rice plates, vermicelli, sandwiches and snacks.

The fried egg rolls were crispy but not oily. The pho came in a hot tasty beef broth. The beef brisket with rice was served in a slightly spicy soup base and the beef was tasty and soft. The BBQ pork was moist and flavorful yet without use of MSG.

The Vietnamese coffee with condensed milk was strong as it should be. If you like regular American coffee, this is not for you.

The server did not write down our orders, but got everything correct. The food came very promptly. The service was good. The prices were very reasonable. The decoration is basic and of family-style. If you are looking for good Vietnamese food, this is a good choice.

Stopped in for lunch on a Monday at 11:30. Some folks in but not too crowded. Service was great, had a Thai iced tea and water within minutes. Ordered the fresh spring rolls and the grilled pork bahn mi. They asked if I wanted the da with spicy, which I did - so glad they asked! Unfortunately it didn't seem very spicy when it came. Spring rolls I found a little boring - shrimp, lettuce, basil and noodles were fresh but plain. It comes with a generous amount of good tasting peanut sauce and ground peanuts, but the spring rolls could use some carrots or cucumber or something to add flavor.

I loved the bahn mi - the bread was the good French roll with crispy exterior and soft interior. Meat was tasty and juicy, veggies were fresh and crisp. Again I wish there were more jalapeños when order spicy, but that was minor. I liked them so much I ordered 2 to go!

I like this place for sit-down, but I'm not sure about their take-out....mixed results.
Their Pho' is great; served with all the "add-ins". Waitstaff is friendly, but some don't speak very good english. I asked for more cilantro for the Pho, and got jalapeno instead.
Overall, good, inexpensive Viet food
