Really great food. Not many options in the area but out of all of them this place is the best. I grew up on pho but I don't make it myself. This is a great option when you can't get it homemade.

Authentic Vietnamese food. Just a mom an pop kinda place. Nothing fancy but if you are looking for cheap eats and large plate of food you've come to the right place.

Love coming here. Grew up eating many different authentic Asian foods. Majority of the time its spot on. Once in a great while they might have an off day if someone different is i the kitchen.

We have been visiting Pho #1 for several years. Yes, there have been some changes in broth quality and service, since the ownership changed hands, but things seem to be on an upswing. There's a steady stream of dine-in customers every time we stop. Tonight...More

Their food is mediocre: Lack of flavor (too much oil & MSG) in soup and cheap on extras so I have to keep asking for them!! :(

When the previous owner ran this restaurant, the Pho was outstanding. Currently who ever is managing this restaurant, the Pho is not as good. The clear broth does not have the great taste that the previous owner created. The sides are sadly missing. The day...More
