“Not bad”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2012

We were staying at the Staybridge Suites nearby and decided to try this place out. Nice selection of pho options compared to the restaurant we have back home but I think the flavor of the pho at our hometown place is a little better. The pho came out really quickly, but the server forgot our order of iced coffee. She later gave it to us "to go." Coffee (with condensed milk) was yummy. Healthier to eat here than, say, the Red Robin down the road, and more economical. Not a bad place to eat while traveling.

“Kinda average pho”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2012

The portions on the smallish side. Prices are on par with other pho places. Service as usual in pho restaurant, aloof but efficient. All in all, average in taste and ambience. This a pho restaurant. A utilitarian low cost fast food vietnamese restaurant. I would return, given its proximity and convenience to Dulles airport. A quick meal of little consequence but filling.
Two out of five stars for value because of small portions.

“Never Again”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Today we went to Pho Bac after church which was 1:40 pm. This was our first time there. The place is ran down, zero ambiance and not neat looking. Upon our arrival they sat as down, gave us the menu..and we waited and waited. My husband waived his hand trying to get their attention, including the lady at the bar. I had a feeling that the wait staff was also the cooks in the kitchen. There were 2 wait staff , 1 cashier / bar person and a bus boy. The wait staff was wearing plain street clothes and the other was wearing an apron (meaning he was the cook too). The place was 80% full and 50% of the people were still waiting to place their order. After 20 minutes of useless waiting, I told my husband that it is time for us to go. The children were also hungry. We walked out of the place extremely hungry and frustrated. We will never go back to this place ever!!

IF THERE WAS A NO STAR, THEY DESERVE THAT!!
