Great food, great value

Nothing Fancy deserves to be on Diners, Drive-ins and Dives, but this is no dive. Asian and American favorites cooked to perfection.

This place located in the Old City Mall is in the heart of town. It's a great place for lunch & shopping. The thing I always get is the Eggroll Salad, and an order of spring rolls. The salad had chopped up crispy eggrolls, rice noodles, & crushed peanuts on top. She serves it with an Asian style vinaigrette. Absolutely... More

Located inside the "City Mall", this is a quaint little place with a tiny kitchen and like 3 employees, but the food is pretty good. I have tried the Beef Noodle soup which is basically Pho soup, but they don't call it that (even though the owners are Laotian or Vietnamese). Not sure if their Pho is Hanoi or Saigon... More

This is one of my husbands favorite places in town, and I have come to enjoy it too. Everything is tasty and fresh prepared when you order it. We eat here about twice a month because the food is good, the prices are incredibly reasonable, and the folks are friendly.

Nothing Fancy has one of the best Eggrolls you'll ever eat. The service is good, the place is out of the way and a bit different, and the food is very good for the price. They have a daily lunch special that's always a bargain. My favorite item on the menu, besides the egg rolls, is the Pork Loin Alan.

I asked my waitress for a suggestion. Within minutes, I got a plate with shredded lettuce and diced cucumbers. over that was rice cold noodles. On top were two sliced egg rolls definitely hot, definitely home made. The waitress brought 3 sauces but i didn't use any. Enjoyed the different flavored as I scarfed it down. WAY better than last...

The hot beef noodle soup during the winter and the fresh spring rolls during the summer, and friendly service make this styop a must at least once a month.

Thien makes amazing American and Vietnamese food. There are great daily specials, and it's all dirt cheap. Finally, she makes most things from scratch, including the best egg rolls I've ever had. You're missing out if you don't stop by, and be sure to try anything Vietnamese.
