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.

Food lacked flavor. I had a sandwich and it was not that great. The pho lacked flavor and tasted watery. The rolls were nothing spectacular. Not worth it at all.

Healthy comfort food is great to find when traveling. Had the pho , a rice noodle soup with veggies in beef broth. I could not finish the small bowl, a quick and very reasonable meal right across from campus.

Let me set the scene for you: it was a chilly rainy day, my friends and I are soaked, and our spirits are down, since we were just turned away from Last Resort because they stop serving at 3 to accommodate dinner at 5, so we stumble across Pho. Luckily, I was with fellow asians (Japanese and Korean), so I... More

The dishes are fresh, the flavors are excellent...it's centrally located in downtown Athens....whenever I need to take someone to lunch this is where I go...it is consistently delicious. Try it all.
