I would highly recommend this place because they have good food and good service. The prices aren't too bad, and is well worth the visit. There are other places that serve similar dishes, but this place should be at or near the top of the list.

There are a lot of pho restaurants in the area. They range from dirty with terrible service, and attitudes all the way up to Pho 79, which I feel is the best. Whether you get the noodle items, (pho) or the other stuff everything is just right. The restaurant is very clean. The people are so friendly and attentive that... More

Quick, friendly service. Consistently good pho. Favorite place to stop by. Highly recommended if one is in the mood for traditional Vietnamese noodle soup.

Just as their shirts say..this place is "Pho King Good"!! Their meat is so tasty, its gilled heathly meat at its best. I have yet to try anything on their menu that i do not like. I always get the "B1" and extra egg roll.

This is mine and my husband go to Pho place, the service here is excellent and the food is delicious. We usually get the bowl of pho but I have also had their spring rolls which are really delicious. On your way out the door, make sure you grab a bubble tea!

Had chicken pho and bahn mi, both were excellent. Toppings were fresh and prices were very reasonable. Love the hot chili paste!

I love this little restaurant. This soup is nothing like I've ever had - well before they opened. I feel fortunate to live nearby & can visit often. Their noodle soup is fresh, clean, not greasy or oily, its simply perfect with robust flavors. I typically order the number 1 - small Noodle soup with round steak. I have introduced... More
