We eat here often (ordering take out today, as a matter of fact). A family of six can get full with spending less than $50. The food is delicious and well prepared.

Phobia usually a beef broth. But some places serve chicken base. Most not very well. This place has been a favorite for years for their great chicken pho. I had not been in a few years. This time the chicken was almost not even possible to find. I would have ordered extra meat but nobody came by. The chicken base... More

So I am in the area twice a week, and pass this spot on a regular, so I decided to try it! All I can say is that the prices are amazing. I paid less than half of what I usually pay at my regular spot. However, I must say, the food is kinda blah. Well, maybe blah is pretty... More

Most are excellent or very good, using almost standardized recipes and ingredients, but Pho 21 doesn't reach those levels. The brew was almost tasteless, the meat ingredients were overcooked and...

Had the beef stew. Was very tasty. The egg rolls were good with a nice crunch to them. The kids enjoyed their BBQ pork over rice. Quick service.

My boys make it a point to eat here every time we get the opportunity. The Pho Ga is very warming and leaves you very satisfied. We do not leave hungry. You must also try the Vietnamese ice coffee.

Soup Base for beef was a bit on thin side taste wise. Felt like it had been watered down compared to Pho Hoang across the road. It looked like good value but servings were smaller and the amount of meats were lesser too.
