1500 Pleasant Hill Road, Lawrenceville, GA 30044
This location is probably the least busy out of the chain, which is why I love coming here. I always get sat even before I can open the door all the way, and food comes out at lightning speed. I’ve never seen the place more than half way filled. I think most of their business come from take-out.
Service is incredibly fast, but somehow food never fails to be incredible. Their effeciency has never sacrificed the quality of their food. I find it funny that sometimes they’ll just stand their after handing over the menus…They’re always more than willing to make tweaks in the dishes as well. I have a sensitivity to bean sprouts, and they’re more than happy to wrap new spring rolls without them.
The setting is simple and has a really homey feel. It sort of feels like coming for dinner at your aunt or grandma’s house. The employees and owners are usually huddled around the check-out counter talking, eating, or cleaning something, which makes it easy to get their attention. I never mind their chatter since I don’t understand Vietnamese at all besides a few words and phrases. I actually like the background noise. They also play vietnamese songs as a final touch to their ambience.
My favorites are the bun bo hue, bo kho, pho dac biet, the marinated beef chunks, and any of the rice combo dishes. You can order a small cup of the pho broth on the side with any rice dishes, too! Great for when you want a rice or vermicelli dish, but a small part of you want some soup as well.
