This is a very nice/clean store front place in Desplaines. Excellent food, fresh, nice size servings and a great choice! BYOB with a great family that cooks wonderful food at good prices. We will make this a regular stop.

Ordered the pho tai, their beef pho. broth came out with chicken broth. Wth... Not only that, but the broth tasted like it was from powder, like they didn't make it themselves. I could have gone to the store for chicken stock and boiled some noodles. That's not authentic. What kind of beef pho has chicken broth? I would have... More

The pho is even rated highly by aliens from other planets. And these aliens know pho. Trust me, I've read the reviews. Try it. Like it. Revisit. It will give you something to talk about with anyone in the galaxy.

Great place to get Pho - was super busy, which was an indication of how good it is. Super fresh food, great selection, and authentic. Would definitely go back again. Wait staff was very friendly too despite it being very busy.

Great atmosphere, people, and food is what makes Dung Gia a great stop for lunch (or dinner). Their lunch specials are HUGE and CHEAP. DG has fast service with a smile every time I've been there.

Great little family restaurant with lots of tasty options. We had the seafood and beef pho and they were both good. Unfortunately the beef pho had a little bit to much fennel in it, otherwise it would have been great. The Banh Mi was okay, but it was also very cheap. Service and prices are great.

I had driven by often, but never stopped in. From the outside it look busy and the bamboo curtains darken your view in. But take a chance on this gem. Step inside you are greeted happily by the staff - I'm guessing they are all family members. They aim to please. The menu is traditional to the other Vietnamese restaurants... More

Have been to this place a couple of times. Convenient location with sufficient street parking. While it wasn't packed last time I was there, there was a constant stream of people coming in for lunch. The waiters are very friendly and efficient and, since I knew what I wanted, the wait time was less then 10 minutes. The pho here... More

My wife and I eat here every couple weeks. I usually get spring roles and the mint beef salad, while my wife gets the chicken pho. All are wonderful. Service is great as well. The only aspect keeping me from giving an "excellent" rating is that it is often a little loud, and the air conditioning sometimes can't quite keep... More
