go for the pho

basic hole in wall pho noodles, tons of options for your pho. Its fresh, not greasy, quick, and 1 serving is good for 2 meals! great when you are feeling not so great, and you want that fresh broth and hand made to order soup.

It is 1/17/12 and I'm elbow deep in pho soup as I type this. At what I'd expect to be a busy lunch hour, I'm sitting among five other tables of patrons. The service is great, food is great and the next time I'm in Allentown I will eat here again. It's across the street from the state employment agency... More

I have eaten here several times. The appearance, inside and outside, is a little dated (say, about 1975) and run-down, and I have never been particularly impressed with the service every time I've been there, it's been a little slow and inattentive). But even with that said, Pho 1's food has always been excellent and keeps me coming back. There... More

I can't believe I have lived here for three years and only discovered this restaurant this week. It is very authentic Vietnamese with very fresh ingredients. The pho is delicious and the prices are very low. In addition it is a byob with no corkage fee. Very attentive and helpful service. It is a hole in the wall if that... More

When I first saw the name of the place I was definitley skeptical. I have never been to a good restaurant with the number 1 in it in the past and by the look of the restaurant I wasn't expecting that to change. However as soon as I walked in I noticed that the place was full of Asians and... More

The food is great. The service is great. The parking is easy. The place is very clean. Simple easy to order menu. Nice portions. They offer all of the most popular sauces right at the table. The Pho soup is the best I ever had. Make it s destination place. We drve 50 miles just to eat there.

The Pho soup is very good, not the absolute best ever, but very good. Everything is fresh and tasty. The "broken rice" is good, but I was expecting something different than just white rice. The place itself is clean, wooden, and has a few tvs to entertain you. Try a can of melon juice in the cooler- it is a... More
