This place is located in the bustling area of Lakeview, where you can find food from many different cultures. I called in my order and walked over from where I was staying. The place was busy inside, with 3 or 4 others waiting to pick...up their food and 2 other couples dining in. I ordered the Saigon classic sandwich, with ham, pate, and pork roll, served with pickled carrots and daikon, cucumber, cilantro, jalapeno, soy sauce, black pepper, and mayo on a fresh baked baguette. It was very tasty and the price wasn’t bad. I would definitely visit again to try some of the other interesting items on the menu.More

The restaurant is cute and cozy. Portions are large. The vegetarian pho lacked taste, but my companion said the beef pho was tasty. The vegetarian spring rolls were tasty.

This places makes an enjoyable sandwich, but I give it 3 stars because of the price. A tofu bahn mi and can of soda cost about $9, and with nothing particularly special going on. I've had equivalent bahn mis for $3.50. Good? Yes. Worth the...price? Not to me.More

We have eaten here on several occasions and we are never disappointed! The Banh Mi sandwiches are delicious and we just recently tried the spring rolls which were also very good! If you are in the area, make sure to check it out!

It might be because there just isn't that much of these types of shops around that they can get away with serving very basic food but it's not very good and the ingredients all generic ingredients with no touch if authenticity

This place doesn't look like much but the food is pretty solid. I love just getting a bunch of the shrimp spring rolls because they are light and refreshing. The Pho is also pretty solid. I still have to try the bahn mi sandwich since...I always end up sticking to my favorites. The staff is nice and they make the food quickly and to order. Not much room to sit down inside the restaurant so this food is best enjoyed by picking it up and taking it somewhere to eat. There is even a bench right outside the restaurant where you can eat and do some people watching on Broadway.More

Went there with my girlfriend before going to the theatre. We shared a Pho which was pretty good and we had a root beer. The place is nothing special but good to get something small to eat. Staff is neutral. Would go back when hungry...and close to that place.More

Why didn't anyone tell me Banh Mi sandwiches were so good!? I asked the girl at the register what would she recommend. The most popular items are the traditional Vietnamese pho soup and the Saigon classic, lemongrass chicken and barbecue pork Vietnamese sandwiches. I had...the BBQ pork and it definitely did not disappoint. It's not very spacious inside but if you can grab a seat to eat there it gives a nice view of Broadway.More

because it's always delicious, quick and reasonably priced. The lemongrass chicken banh mi has been my favorite forever now and I'm never disappointed. They have the best baguettes-crispy crust and tender inside. Nothing is over spiced, sriracha is available and can help you get a...better kick! Got to try the pho on a visit, it smells wonderful!More

Tried the vege bahn mi sandwich. The sandwich was dry…lacking of some sauce to balance out the thick bread and lemongrass tofu. Something like a sweet thai ginger sauce would have been great. For $7-$8 I was not very impressed. Nothing really stood out about...this sandwich that would make me want to come back.More

Yes. I am one of those people-- the ones who actually Google the nearest banh mi or pho restaurant in any city they visit. Sometimes I'm impressed. Most of the times, the food is average. At Banh Mi and Co., I was blown away. Starting...with the food-- it is authentic, super-fresh, unique and has just the right amount of spice. I'd recommend the lemongrass chicken banh mi, as well as the authentic ham and pate option. SO good, and very, very well-priced, too. And let's not forget the decor. Someone was really thinking when they designed this place-- walking through the door, you're transported into what looks like a street in Ho Chi Minh City or Hanoi, filled with wrought iron balconies, painted walls that look like Vietnamese buildings, and little knick-knacks that would be familiar to anyone who has visited Southeast Asia. This place is amazing. If I lived in Chicago, I'd go every week (if not every day). I'm missing it already.More

Everything here is so fresh and delicious. I've been here a few times (actually the one in Roscoe Village on Roscoe) and it's hard to pick my favorites. I loved the papaya salad with fish sauce and shredded lemongrass chicken. Their sandwiches are so healthy...with fresh, crunchy shredded veggies along with tasty meats. The rolls used are satisfyingly chewy. The Value is incredible! Can't wait to go back again!More
