My husband and I have dined here many times and it's always consistently excellent. The Pho is delicious! Great selection of microbrews. This place is very busy but they let you know how long your wait will be and keep you informed by texting your cell phone. We will come back anytime we are in San Diego.

This was a default choice as I can not walk for long distances and the Inn was a couple blocks away. Vietnamese food. (which I never tried in Vietnam). My wife and I chose two items to go. and after a twenty minute (but enjoyable) wait we got our food (packed well) IT WAS DELICIOUS ! The only down side... More

My husband and I decided to try OB because they were featured in Diners,Drive Ins and Dives. Honestly, we would never have tried it otherwise. Parking is tricky , as it is almost anywhere near a California beach. We found a spot on a residential street. The restaurant is tiny and intimate. The staff , very friendly. The food, Wonderful!!!... More

We seeked this place out after a search for Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives in San Diego area. The place was hopping even though it was well past prime lunch time. We ordered the seafood pho, chicken satay, and deep friend spring rolls. The satay came with 3 very large portioned skewers, they were delicious. Loved the pickled cabbage. The... More

Good service.. long wait.. Great food and the Price is Right!. The Pho is good! What you would expect from a Vietnamese Restaurant. The recommended appetizer is the Spicy Garlic Wings!

Not a place for a quiet dinner. Lots of TVs, beer and very crowded seating. Extremely noisy and service is marginal. Food was just fair but hardly worth the experience. Young people's place but not for the food.

I saw this place on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives and made it my first stop on a business trip to San Diego. The ambiance was really cool and I have to say that the pho (I had the #3) was better than several that I had in Vietnam! Our table shared the fried dumplings, which were also delicious. I couldn't... More

This is a nice place to fix your Asian noodle craving. Generous portions, flavourful and the price is right. We had the pork fried rice that was nice, the wide soft rice noodles that I love and a pho soup that was very tasty. Only downside is that we had to sit outside because of our dogs and they can't...

My friend and I had dinner here a couple of times, the first time we ate outside which was really nice. The outside tables are communal so if you don't have a big party you will most likely end up sharing a table with a couple of other people. The food here is so good, I usually end up eating... More
