Good for what ails you

I have to agree with another reviewer who said that the chicken pho has medicinal qualities. It's true for me that any time I have a cold (luckily, not often), I crave the chicken pho from Just Pho. It tastes amazing, even to senses dulled by congestion and cough medicine. My husband is a big fan... read more

Since returning from a wonderful trip to Vietnam and Thailand, I have been searching for some good Pho. Tried a couple restaurants in south Florida and the Pho was ok, but today, I went to Just Pho in Athens, Georgia. This Pho was excellent! The broth was so tasty and the beef was tender and delicious!

The appetizer arrived long after the main course. The pho was not tasty and didn't come with the sprouts as offered on the menu because as the waiter stated, they were out. However, the kitchen had some,.so he could borrow some but only if I insisted. Way too complicated for me. All would be forgiven if the food tasted good,... More

Pho is somewhat new to me. Been here 4 times in the last year. Shrimp Pho is my favorite. I do not understand how their broth is so good when it is perfectly clear with a hint of yellow. Small seating area, but we've never had a problem finding a seat.

We used to live in Athens and the one thing I'm always longing for, that I cannot get here in Michigan, is the delicious pho we used to have here. I could have it every day it's so good. It's one of the first places I'd go to if we go back and visit Athens one day!

I recommend the chicken pho. I really believe it has medicinal qualities. The broth is heavenly. Get the bbq pork banh mi - very tasty. Service is very good and the prices are very reasonable.

And I understand the popularity of Pho from my last visit. Generous portions of a delicious soup, Phở Tái Bò Viên, to which I added the delicious, fresh, crisp bean sprouts and red chili sauce (approach this last with caution, it is HOT). They were very busy with the early Friday evening dinner business, which somewhat overwhelmed the single greeter/waitress,... More

Not too far from UGA with good parking. Our family found this place about 8 pm on a Saturday. Look like its a family own noodle shop. There are quite many tables with unclean dishes. The cashier / server seems friendly but service is pretty slow. Business not bad. Menu is pretty standard and price on average. #16 grilled pork... More

Nice local place with friendly staff. Good portions but the Pho isn't as spicy/complex as those in Atlanta. Veggies to add are mostly sprouts and just a few others (would have liked to have more peppers, cilantro, basil). Would definitely go back but the food is somewhat bland compared to the many places on Buford Hwy in ATL. Good spring... More
