Always fresh ingredients. Ambience always welcoming and you always get the latest information on the Texans or the Cowboys if they are playing that week. I pick up dinner once or twice a week without fail.

I've been working and living in Galveston for the past 4 months. From Toronto ON and travel all over. Pho 18 Pho Tai is the most amazing soup ever. Worth a trip to the island.

First off, this place is not about the dining experience. Not fancy,not really even nice.... But it is called Pho. So that is what they do best. It truly is some of the best. Have been many times. The hours are kinds of strange because the owner has other places he works. But if you can catch-em when he's open.... More

I have always gotten takeout here. I love the Vietnamese egg rolls and the spring rolls. They also have very good soup.

After trying a few places to eat over two days in Galveston, I decided to try Pho 18 since you can't mess up Pho. The other eatery's made me think people in Galveston can't cook. This place was pretty good. I had the Pho combo with everything in it. It taste like any other Pho i've had and that's tasty... More

Very good pho. I ordered to take out and rather liked the fact that the ingredients were separated for me to "build" my meal when I arrived home. This allowed me to skip the cilantro (which I really don't like) and add as much or as little of the bean sprouts and other veggie components to my taste. The soup... More

Had the pho w/meatballs and sliced beef. As far as pho goes it was on par with some of the best I've eaten. The serving was generous and came with plenty of sides (basil, cilantro, bean sprouts, etc.). Dining room was clean and service was both quick and friendly.
