So craving pho, I was introduced to this establishment by a friend who said prices were low, and food was decent (for the price). The restaurant itself is nothing fancy with the outside needing a little bit of updating. Walking in the restaurant is pretty clean with booth tables along the perimeter and larger seating tables in the center. The restaurant gives off a very family owned feeling to it, with cartoons playing behind the counter for the children and a giant projection television (from 1990's) playing either soccer or traditional vietnamese shows complete with family members watching it while they do their side work. I've only had the pho here so thats what the review will be about. The pho comes in your typical sizes (regular (5.50) and large (6.25)) and the selection varies from just particular cuts of meat (pho tai etc) to the special which is a hodge podge of everything. The broth isn't as rich or deep as it would be if you made it at home, but still pretty good. The noodles are cooked right and the meat (although not as much as I would've imagined for a large bowl of pho) was fresh. I even got a side of raw meat ($1) to see the quality of the meat and i'd have to say it was fresh enough. The sides it came with (limes, jalapenos, bean sprouts, thai basil, etc) were all fresh with few brown spots. Overall the experience was pleasant. Decent priced food, good portions, and the best service you can expect from someone who's first language probably wasn't english.
