Great atmosphere, people, and food is what makes Dung Gia a great stop for lunch (or dinner). Their lunch specials are HUGE and CHEAP. DG has fast service with a smile every time I've been there.

Great little family restaurant with lots of tasty options. We had the seafood and beef pho and they were both good. Unfortunately the beef pho had a little bit to much fennel in it, otherwise it would have been great. The Banh Mi was okay, but it was also very cheap. Service and prices are great.

I had driven by often, but never stopped in. From the outside it look busy and the bamboo curtains darken your view in. But take a chance on this gem. Step inside you are greeted happily by the staff - I'm guessing they are all family members. They aim to please. The menu is traditional to the other Vietnamese restaurants... More

Have been to this place a couple of times. Convenient location with sufficient street parking. While it wasn't packed last time I was there, there was a constant stream of people coming in for lunch. The waiters are very friendly and efficient and, since I knew what I wanted, the wait time was less then 10 minutes. The pho here... More

My wife and I eat here every couple weeks. I usually get spring roles and the mint beef salad, while my wife gets the chicken pho. All are wonderful. Service is great as well. The only aspect keeping me from giving an "excellent" rating is that it is often a little loud, and the air conditioning sometimes can't quite keep... More

The Tran has cooked up mean pho daily for 30 years. I've dined in hundreds of times (lucky to work on the same block!); whether it's meat or veggie, fried rice, or totally new to your palette, the staff is super accommodating and a welcoming. As the other reviewers attest, this is consistent and deliciously authentic Vietnamese. Be prepared for... More

The staff make you feel very welcome and do an excellent job explaining the menu to those uninitiated in Vietnamese cuisine. They have the most wonderful soups, curries and sandwiches. Yes sandwiches...if you have never tried a Bánh mì please do so as they are exceptional.
