Great pho! Probably my second favorite pho in Tucson, but it smelled like someone had an accident in the bathroom and it was never cleaned up, which was a little bit off-putting. Possibly consider just getting the food to go?

It is a good Pho restaurant. The service was good. We arrived before dining hours, so it was not busy. The food was good. We had the fried rice, rice noodles, and spicy tofu. Enjoy!

Definitely one of the better pho joints in Tucson. I always get the pho with rare beef and tendon. Spring rolls are also quite good. I've never dined in but I get takeout once month or so, never disappointed. Portions are decent, broth is excellent and price is reasonable. My only criticism is that the lady at the register (I...

Pho 88 was recommended to us by our cousins. Being pretty hungry from our trip we decided to check it out. We ordered 3 beef Pho; I got mine with tripe, tendon, and thinly sliced beef. She packed everything so neatly for us in a box which consisted of tons of mung bean sprouts, basil, lime, and jalapeños and the... More

Like another reviewer mentioned this is no Miss Saigon , with its lines and buzz but it does serve up a decent enough pho. The decor is a bit frumpy and you will certainly have no problem getting a table. Still. , the owner takes pride in her pho and it's a nice bowl of soup. I ordered the number... More

Terrible. Pho beef broth has no flavor. Very little beef and 3-4 VERY thin slices of tendon. Condiment, bean sprout is not fresh. The old lady server, may be the owner has an attitude. A hot tea pot for 3 is $4.50. Worst Vietnamese dining experience ever.

We visited there about 1/2 hour before closing time. Service was fine but the food and ambience were average at best. A much better choice down the same street is the Miss Saigon. It is packed with Vietnamese patrons whereas the Pho had few. Telling, I thought.

We tried this restaurant for the first time after recommendations from several friends. The spring rolls (shrimp) are excellent and beef and chicken noodle (vermicelli) soups are superb.
