“Always reliably delicious”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2011

Good pho. What else can I say? We've been coming here for ten years. Not the greatest, not bad, inexpensive, tasty, hearty portions. The garden and fried rolls (like egg rolls) are okay when fresh, rubbery when not (look for the shimp to be split in half when they're trying to cut costs). Bubble drinks and other beverages are average and probably from the mass-produced mixes available. Four stars for consistent quality.

“Mmm mmm good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2009

We love Pho 88. The pho is consistent and there's a good variety of meat toppings. The staff is prompt with your order and they do give a lot of condiments. Take care with the Siracha and don't forget to try the delicious spring rolls. The chicken pho is my standard therapy when I've got a cold. This restaurant is dependable and convenient especially now that they take credit cards.

“I think this is Pho 88... husband and I love it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2009

I think this is Pho 88 in Beltsville on west side of Hwy 1, in a shopping center next to a Subway or Quiznos with a bakery and a dry cleaner on the other side, across the road from a South American chicken place. Anyway, if this is the same place, it's wonderful! Have gone twice with my husband. Went there because the Washiningtonian listed them in Cheap Eats. Large bowl of Beef Pho (many different types of beef to choose from.... I get the #9 Well Done brisket and flank, my husband gets the #6, tendons and flank, and my stepson gets Chicken Pho) is just under $7. Beef was delicious, lots of rice noodles, plus they bring you a plate full of fresh basil, bean sprouts, sliced jalapeno peppers and lime wedges. At all tables, they have two hot sauces, soy sauce, large spoons, forks (to get the noodles), chopsticks and napkins, so you're all set, and you can customize your own soup. My stepson tried one of their bubble smoothies, and gave to my husband who enjoyed it. Kiwi with Japanese Green Tea. The "bubbles" in the bottom are black colored tapioca beads, which the poster says are like gummi bears. People there drink a lot of them, and they have lots of flavors. I had a taste, and the kiwi was very fresh and vivid. The total bill for three very full people, with beverages, was $26. If you are new to Pho or not very adventurous, try the #9. We love this place, and the people are very gracious.
