This little place is deceiving. It is in a small strip shop, not the best part of town. Very plain decor. Very busy during lunch but very slow at dinner time. Have been there many times at dinner where we are the only patrons. Not a large selection which is actually nice. The owner is amazingly friendly with his "see... More

This place doesn't look like much but the food is always great - fresh and quick. I'm a big fan and this place has rekindled my love of Pho!

Vietnam 81 is right up the street from me. I wanted to try something different I've actually been going through for the past 2 years if I want something light that not going to weigh heavy on my stomach I go there for there soup. It's worth a try.

Came here on a whim to try out something different. This place received a lot of good reviews so I figured it was worth a shot. First things first, the location kinda sucks. It's off of a main road which is nice, but trying to get out is atrocious. If you can, back in to your parking spot to save... More
