I've eaten here many times. I'm vegan and usually order the tofu wrap appetizer and the tofu lemongrass entre. Sometimes I add brocolli to the entre. The menu has expanded, and yesterday I was tempted to stop being vegan--everything looks so good! The family who owns and runs this cozy place are very nice and welcoming. For flavorful, comforting food,... More

There's not much local competition for good Vietnamese food, and Pho Nam is a worthy addition to the dining scene. Not elegant, in ambience - a simple local restaurant. I'm not a Vietnamese cuisine guru but the dishes seem authentic and tasty.

I come here at least once a week. The place might not look like much but the food is out of this world. I tried pho every where I go but found non better. The staff is all so friendly, you feel at home.

John, the owner, is part of the attraction here. He is friendly and cares about his customers. His children often helps out at the restaurant. This is a great family owned and run restaurant. This is the only place we go to for Vietnamese, because it is right here in town and it is as authentic as they come. We're... More

Are there better places for pho? Yes. Are they anywhere near the area? No. The crispy quail is AWESOME. The pho Thai is the best that I've found in the area. It's good, and the hoisin and siracha add depth of flavor to make it really good. I will keep coming back.
