“Delicious and warming cheap eat”
Reviewed July 11, 2012

Don't expect anything fancy, Pho 75 is a simple cheap eat serving delicious Pho. I live down the street and have ended up frequenting Pho 75 often to grab a quick and delicious bowl of soup during the winter and early spring months. They are also great for takeout!

They only take cash so come prepared. YUM.

“Cheap, fast, delicious”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Don't expect a ton of variety. Their name is Pho, and that's what they serve. But specialization can lead to mastery, and this is the case here. You know a place is good if the ethnicity of the food is matched by those of the eaters; this is true of Pho 75. I also recommend the lemonade -it was heavenly. Go for the food, not the locale or the decor, which is sparse.

“Excellent value”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

There are several Pho 75's in the DC area. It is well worth stopping at one if you run across it. The up side is that the Pho is very good, service is quick, and the price is very affordable. The down side is that the only thing on the menu is Pho. If you're not in the mood for the noodle soup, then you need to dine elsewhere.

“Pho, a bowl of steaming soup...”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I credit Pho 75 with introducing me to the magic that is a steaming bowl of pho. This divey little restaurant is a go-to for many fine pho fans. Enjoy a regular bowl to warm up on a chilly day, or a giant bowl to chase away your blues. Traditional condiments let you customize your flavors to your own taste, and the communal tables are great for people-watching or just blending into the crowd. Bring cash, and don't forget to order some iced coffee to top off your meal!

“Still Cheap and Delicious”
Reviewed April 15, 2012 via mobile

We've been coming here since 1986, when it was just about the only game in town for pho. In a city where restaurants come and go, it's a comfort that this place still has the same high quality pho soup as it did years ago. My only (very minor) quibble is that they're adding more sugar to the iced lemon sodas than they used to ...
