I always seek out good pho when I travel. Pho Ba Co was recommended by an Irvine local, so I couldn't pass up the opportunity. I had the chicken pho, which was delicious. The chicken was tender, the noodles fresh, accompanied by fresh vegetables to add at will. The pork and shrimp spring rolls were accompanied by a tasty sauce.... More

This is probably the best Vietnamese place for Pho in Irvine. We always order Pho or one of the rice dishes such as the Charbroiled Beef or Charbroiled Pork Chop. If ordering the rice dish make sure to ask for the garlic rice. For dessert try the Black Sea with Boba drink.

Enjoyed tasty bun with spicy lemongrass beef. Food prepared quickly. Very good air conditioning on a hot day. Typical items on menu.

We have been getting our pho fix at this place for 15 years! The great flavor has not changed at all, and most of workers there are still the same.. Not only pho is a great dish, but also their egg rolls are good, spring rolls are good, and don't forget Bun is also a great choice! You can't go... More

When our group of 7 was first seated, the server was good about getting our drink, appetizer and food order. However, after the food was served, he disappeared. After a long time, we finally got the attention of another server to refill water. The server never cleared the plates, but finally brought the bill. It wasn't particularly crowded that evening,...

Over the weekend, we did an impromptu family get-together for dinner at this restaurant. As my parents have recently moved into the area, we've been looking for a Vietnamese restaurant to call our "regular" and decided to try out this restaurant. Overall, it was really good. The staff is terrific! We arrived at 4:30 as my parents eat dinner early... More

Solid quality and good pricing. Parking often difficult. Staff very accommodating. Setting is very basic and slightly noisy.

Nice place to eat. Have outdoor seating on nice days. Service is pretty good. Used to be better when they were smaller. Prices are decent. Parking can sometimes be a pain, there are other little restaurants in the same center. One of the better Vietnamese restaurants locally.

I've eaten at several pho places in Irvine and Pho Bac is, by far, the best IMHO. The pho here has a very flavorful broth and they give you a ton of whatever meat you order. Add veggies of your choice, bean sprouts, peppers, cilantro, mint and enjoy.
