This is a controversial thing to say around here, but this is the best Pho place in town. Best service and best tasting pho. Try their salty limeade if you like the taste of margaritas, they are super good. Salty, sweet, and sour mmmmmmmm!

They have have about 14 different types of Pho, i.e. meatball, brisket, steak, tripe, tendon, vegetarian, with all the usual herbs. Small, medium and large bowls. Plenty of seating. Relatively clean and organized for an Asian restaurant. Fast service. Good price. They have a full menu, but I went for the Pho. Recommended.

This was a new one for me and well worth it. Please be sure to tell the waiter if you are allergic to nuts. We visited while on vacation and visiting family. Highly recommend.

I have to preface by saying I was sick as a dog when I went there last night. I could not really smell the food, which is not ideal if you are writing this kind of review. I needed hot soup and Pho 79 had it. And unlike the other Vietnamese restaurant nearby (on 16th St) and Wild Bangkok they... More

Excellent! My favorite Pho restaurant. Totally authentic! If you like Pho this is for you! Other dishes they serve, like their noodle bowls, are just as tasty.

I have friends who rave about Pho but I live in a small town so I haven't been able to try it. I was on a vacation in Denver and Pho 79 was recommended. I went with the waiter's recommendation which was "Well, most people order x,y,z and they seem to like it. Some of the other things are a... More

When I'm craving Pho and I'm in Colorado, we always go to this specific restaurant. The portions are amazing. I ordered a medium which is pretty big, if you look at the picture. The broth is full of flavor. The meat is really thin with little to no fat which is very important to me. I've been to other pho... More

The pho was on point! The Bun Bo Hue was by far the tastiest bowl. First time visitor & will most definitely come thru again on my next visit!

I have to say, this is authentic pho - generous portions, somewhat indifferent service which is exactly as it should be. If you sit by the windows you have excellent view of the street. I'll be back.

This was the first place I ever had Pho at and like heroin, I've been chasing the dragon ever since. No place is as good as this place so far. The large is super large so if you order that size, you better be hungry. I love the meatballs. They are finely sliced and perfectly seasoned in the pho. They... More
