I've been coming to this location for Vietnamese food for over 25 years, since it's original incarnation as Kim's Deli. Food is outstanding, inexpensive and plentiful. Always very crowded for lunch, so best to arrive early or late to be seated. Not much to look...More

Im so glad we decided to stop here the minute we arrived I knew we were in the right spot! Delicious pho, the broth was just so good! This place was super busy even by 2pm. The staff was great and the flavors were amazing.
