“Nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014

Not the place to go for hungry people. Mostly noodles and rice with small amounts of meat. Amazed they can cut a pork chop so thin! The service is fast and friendly.

“I should have worn a bib”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 29, 2013

I was staying at the Comfort Inn next door and saw this place. I had a large size pho (i.e. noodle soup) and it was excellent. I ordered mine very spicy and they took me seriously, so be forewarned that it comes Asian-person spicy not White-guy spicy. The large size serving was huge. I should have had the only-slightly-less-huge regular bowl.

I also splattered soup on my shirt when I hauled the long noodles up to my mouth (eating like a White guy) so I should have worn a bib or, better still, learned to eat the pho like a pro.

I'd definitely eat there again.
