This is my favrite place to eat. The food is delicious and you won't believe the prices. You get a lot of great food for a little money. Everything on the menu is good, and the rice platters offered as specials are a great bargain. There isn't one thing on the menu that I don't like.
The specialty drinks (nonalcoholic) are exactly that....special! The Thai Tea and the Red Bean boba drinks are my favorite, and the Vietnamese iced coffee is to die for!! They also have a large selection of great boba drinks, hand mixed Vietnamese sodas, plus traditional colas and iced tea.
The appetizers are a great bargain, and there's always enough for two people to share one. We love to go in and get a couple different ones for all of us to share before the meal.
The Pho is wonderful, and it's enough for two people, and is around $7 a bowl depending on which one you get. And the fresh herbs they bring out with it are so wonderful and aromatic. If you don't know what Pho is, it's a GIANT bowl of broth, noodles, various meats of your choosing, and the fresh herbs. They walk you through it so you know what to do with it when you get it.
The Vermicelli bowls are my favorite, and are perfect on a hot day. They're served cold, with only the grilled meat being hot. I don't know if those are going to make it on the menu, or just stay on the "specials" board. It's a BIG bowl of greens, herbs, noodles, chicken, steak, pork, or grilled shrimp, and a great marinade. It's absolutely delicious!
The sandwiches are wonderful. My favorite is the #13 Beef Skewer sandwich. It's basically the beef skewers from the appetizer list, on a bed of pickled veggies, on fresh bread...I think French maybe?
The owner is a young guy with a lot of enthusiasm, and is very nice. He makes sure everyone is happy and satisfied, and loves seeing new faces!
I usually spend between $10 and $12 on a meal there, including appetizers and a drink, and always have enough for a second meal. If I don't want leftovers, it's usually around $5 or $6.
It doesn't matter what kind of a budget you're on. You can afford this place. In fact, you just can't afford NOT to try it!
