THE BEST PHO!

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

We really enjoy the authentic food we find here. We often come here for lunch. Food is served quickly and is delicious. My favorite is the rice noodles with chicken on a stick. You get 3 sticks here of chicken, beef or a combination. Included are sprouts and Cilantro. Also the Pho is excellent here. There are several choices with... More

I was so happy when this place opened a few years ago, despite the appalling news coverage of the restaurant guy driving around town with unrefrigerated meat for hours and hours. The inside is gorgeous, the menu is fine. Service was ok but then......a week after eating there.....a new charge made to my credit card. Unauthorized. Need I say more?... More

The food at Pho 79 is great Vietnamese food! The menu is pretty varied and everything is good. This is a great place for lunch to break up your normal lunch food.

Firstly having read comments about being cold in the restaurant I rang up to check. The air con is set at 22 C or 72F. It was fine. Had the fresh spring rolls having seen pictures of them. They were good. The Bùn Bó Nuong was good, the others order two Pho dishes both large. For those with an average... More

Pho 79 is one of my favorite spots. I use to drive all the way to Chesapeake for this soup before it opened in Newport News. No other place that serves Pho can top this place. They serve you really good food hot, fast, & at a great price.

There are a few Pho spots in town and none compare to Pho 79. The service is great! Everything is fresh the restaurant is clean and comfortable.
