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

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

I like pho with a nice hot flavorful and spicy broth, and lots of vegetables. Here it has a nice, hot broth and some vegetables, so I would say it was pretty good, but not the best that I have ever had. It is not a spicy broth, but it was still tasty. They also have nice spring rolls. I... More

I usually stick with the chicken pho, so I can't speak to the sandwiches that some reviewers have not liked. The broth is delicious, clear and flavorful, obviously simmered for hours. The portions are hearty and the accompaniments are fresh. During the cold months, they offer fresh ginger teas, which is warming and delicious. Great spot for lunch.
