“Great quick lunch, authentic style pho.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

It's a noodle shop. If you have been to one before, it's exactly what you would expect. No frills, basic decor. Nothing else on the the menu, just comforting noodle soups. Excellent for a quick lunch and the taste was pretty authentic. Good value for the amount of food you get.

“Average Taste”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

I've been to many Pho places around the USA, and I must say that this place isn't the best that I've ever been to. Although the atmosphere is very comforting and the value is great, the pho is just so average. There are many pho places around, and they should make something about their dishes that make it stand out comparing to other pho places. If you want to get your stomach filled at a low cost, this will be a place to go. Sadly to say, if you want value and flavor, this isn't a place to go

“Authentic and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

For $6.95 for a regular Pho, this authentic food is healthy, filling and tasty. The decor is basic, but the service is fast, and the basil and sprouts, means healthy fresh vegetables. Very few other places in the world have Pho restaurants as authentic. Beware even other Vietnamese restaurants in the area don't have anything that comes close to the real thing. They only take cash, have diverse types of Pho such as brisket, tripe, tendon or eye of round, and limited deserts. The fact that I see people from all walks of life eating here means that Pho is one of those value Immigrant foods, and only the Washington DC area has it!

“Vietnamese-style Comfort Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2013 via mobile

Have come for years. Only pho. Yes school cafeteria type decor (and seating) but ambiance good. You might even enjoy the decor as authentic for what this place is. Value tops. Service quick, very Oriental of the efficient-quick-no-nonsense variety.

“Vietnamese noodles is all there is”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

That's why they named this place "PHO 75". The only thing on the menu are Vietnamese Pho (noodle soups) with choice of meats. A big bowl size noodles are served for $7.95 with sides of Vegetables for your soup. The broth it self was good just not the best I've had. You can order PHO with all different types of meats and organs as preferred. Everything tasted about the same except for different kinds of meat you ordered, but that is what "PHO" is all about. It's coming straight from South east Asia just I remembered it. The restaurant was dated and the dishes are getting old so its times for them to replace it. It's not a classy place so don't expect it to be fancy place with candle lite. Lastly, funny how things works, this place do not give bills at end of meal. You walk up to the registered and tell them what you ate. I guess they trust people enough to be able to do that. I personal thought that was different and nice.
