Visiting from out of town we got takeout from Pho88. We got spring rolls in rice paper, and Pho for four. Being a less adventurous group we got sirloin, brisket, and meatballs but not the tripe or tendon. When we went to pick up the order we walked into a very busy restaurant with about 25 tables occupied and there... More

Still a favorite place for us to come. Pho is usually excellent but more recently we've had some broth that was extremely oily. The surface layer was fat that had to be skimmed off. Some oil is nice to have but the whole surface of the broth was all oil. Once removed, the broth was excellent. Everything else was prepared... More

Very good beef noodle soup, big bowl for under $10, parking sometimes could be a pain but not bad considering there are over 10 shops in that small strip mall,

Don't let the strip mall presentation fool you. The food is darn good, and the place was PACKED. There was a steady stream of folks coming in for take out, and waiting in line for a table.

I love the food here, that is why we keep coming back despite the service. We always are polite and leave a good tip but tonight my guy got zero tip. Why should an appetizer and bowl of soup take two hours? On a Tuesday night? I had to ask for the bill twice and then I just went and... More

I have been to Pho 88 numerous times, and I always order the same thing-- No. 14 extra large beef noodle soup. It used to be excellent because the soup was so naturally flavorful. Nowadays, however, MSG seems to have sneaked into the soup (because after the meal, I feel thirsty and my neck seems to be 10 inches thicker... More

Got spring fresh rolls (good), Pad Thai (ok, light on seasoning) and beef vermicelli soup (good). Soup came with a bone and some good hot sauce. Would go back and try two other dishes.

For a highly rated restaurant, the service was indifferent and the wait staff was not welcoming. Food was authentic but not too great. I think it needs some TLC!
