I m not a Pho expert, but, my experience here has been positive both times. And,
Pho is not just all they do. Seating is very casual; seat yourself pretty much.

Clean, light and airy settings with mirrors and windows. Menus are on the table under glass, As one person noted, it is all about Pho and variations. There are clear wraps also. Condiments at table are Sirracha, Hoisin sauce, and Chilli pepper paste.

Wait staff immediately brings a dish of fresh Basil Herbs, lime wedges, bean sprouts, and Jalapeno pepper slices (Mild) and asks for your selection.(s). If you speak Vietnamese then all goes smoothly, but if you do not, then communication becomes slow.

The key order is the Pho, and if you order the clear wraps, you have choices with them also. In either case; the Pho is served in small, medium and large bowls.
The wraps are fresh and large. Their price is really worth considering and you get two large wraps and peanut sauce to go with.

Add the Bean Sprouts, Basil leaves (not stems) a squirt of lime juice to the Pho which contains your selection including rice noodles. Squirt some Hoisin sauce and Sirracha in a small dipping saucer provided and dip your Jalapenos to eat straight.

Slurp away with stix provided, but spoons and forks can be asked for.

The small creampuffs are a delightful treat at the end. The are also a part of the meal.

Portions are large even when ordering a small bowl of Pho. Relax! Take your time, savor the Pho while hot. It is good manners not to slug down all the juice. It is an experience---not a pig-out express.

There is no distinction between lunch and dinner. The menu is the same all day.

You can have varied iterations of Pho, mostly with the traditional beef broth. I will say these restaurants are pretty inconsistent with the quality of the broth. Sometimes it is long simmered and delicious, other times it is watery.

Most serve an adequate amount of bean sprouts, Thai basil, lime wedge and jalapeno.

The best part is the bowls are served with a delicious small cream puff to devour at the finale.

All they do is Pho so whether it is sit down or take out you are served within 5 minutes or less. Soup is as good as it gets.

Fabulous Pho. Broth is very flavorful and plenty of noodles and meats. Portions are extremely large. Try their lemon tea, it's wonderfully refreshing? And finish off with a light and airy cream puff.

Consistent, hearty and tasty pho soup. Than Brothers have a chain of dependable restaurants that serve a great bowl of soup and the custard filled rolls keep me coming back for more....this location is especially clean and bright with some of the fastest service ever.
