If you have a hankering for a nice warm soup, this place has lots of it. The Pho was nice and hot. It has lots of meat and noodles and spicy (I ordered it that way) It was not very expensive for a large too (just under $10)

any choice be it PHO or a rice plate or dish; even try their buffet lunch or dinner time. everything here is on point. not only do I dine here, I order takeout quite often. some may find they have Chinese type stir frys on their menu if you are unsure of Vietnamese cuisine. Very close in stir fry to... More

First of all we showed up at 7:35pm and the place was closing at 8pm... nevertheless our experience (2 business traveler) was positive. The staff was pleasant and the kitchen managed to get our food very quickly out of the door. Despite that rush, the food was good. I would go back there !

A big bowl of delicious noodles and beef (#15) accompanied by the usual sides of basil, bean sprouts, & jalapenos. The broth was so flavorful I couldn't stop eating it. The locale is a little dated but tidy and a lot of traffic in and out of there. Service was quick and friendly. I've had Pho in Chicago and San... More

I have never been disappointed with a meal from Pho 79 or Caravelle. I'm not sure how these restaurants differ, they have different menus and signs out front, but share the same front door and kitchen. I usually get my meal to go as I find the restaurant a little run down but it is always delicious!

A nice place b to stop for lunch. As usual, it is telling to see native faces enjoying the fare. Not a purist trap, just a nice local source of good Pho.

If you are craving PHO, this place definitely delivers. They have a lot of choices for ingredients (i.e. well done or rare flank steak, meatballs, tripe). Portions are really good. Their main menu item is the "PHO 79 Bowl" which is larger and has all the meats included. I asked for extra noodles, but apparently I shouldn't have, this bowl... More

Their name says it all - get the pho! I ordered bun and although it was a large portion, it was lack-luster in flavor. But, the pho! Their pho was downright amazing. Flavorful broth, fresh veggies. One of those dishes you just have to drink from the bowl to get every last drop. Atmosphere was a pretty traditional Vietnamese place,... More
