“Great and Inexpensive Pho and Vietnamese Food in Beltsville”
Review of Pho 88

Pho 88

Cuisines: Vietnamese
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 14, 2017

I probably go to this restaurant on average of once a week for lunch. The PHO is excellent as are the rice dishes. Portions are very big and this place will not break your bank. The menu is simple to navigate. Each PHO dish has a description and a number, just order the number. Also, try the fresh spring rolls that are served with peanut sauce.

They also offer a handful of rice dishes that come with meat. Again, excellent fare and all at a low price. Service is generally really fast and when you are done just bring your check up to the counter to pay.

This restaurant is very representational of Beltsville with a very eclectic mix of nationalities and clientele. It’s just a fun place to eat and it won’t break the bank.

I'm giving it 5 stars because it is what it is: a low price Vietnamese restaurant with few frills but a wonderful selection of tasteful and authentic dishes.

Came on a Saturday afternoon and was surprised to see the restaurant mostly full. Fried spring rolls were greasy, but pho was good.

This place is a solid rock in the Pho business. A staff that barely changes and a menu that stands for what it does best. The service is always good here and the Pho is always delicious. If you're looking for the Vietnamese dish, there's no reason to venture any further.

This is our go to place for pho and the competition is stiff I the area. My husband gets the beef and I get the veggie both are top notch. This establishment is always crowded with locals.

The Washington Post had an article about Beltsville restaurants in it last week and we coincidentally had to be there that Saturday night. Since the review for Pho 88 was good, we tried it.

Not sure I've ever seen so much fat in a bowl of Pho, and we ordered four bowls! Maybe there's a cultural difference here, I don't know, but my message to Pho 88 is to trim your meats, carefully, and look at what you're servicng before it leaves the kitchen. This American palate, those of my family, were really turned off -- to the point of "not coming back here anymore." That said, the broth was fine and the plate of sprouts, mint, etc. was excellent, perhaps the best ever. Oh, and the wait for the food was astonishingly slow.

Hoping this review creates change that will make Pho 88 better for those who visit in the future.
