If you like Vietnamese food, want real authentic soup bowls, this is the place for you. Start off simple, and each time you go back, get a little more adventurous. The basic soup bowl with meatballs seems to be a favorite among the locals.

I went here for the first time last night. It was so bad, I was compelled to sign up and write my first review.

When my friend and I arrived, there were only 2 other parties there (8:30pm on a Thursday night). Probably the first sign this place sucked. He ordered his usual Pho with meatballs and I had Vermicelli with grilled beef and meatballs along with iced coffee.

His Pho didn't look right from the beginning. It had a weird, slightly neon greenish/yellow color to it. There was a good half inch of pure oil swirling around on the top. After tasting it, we both agreed it was some nasty concoction made with chicken broth that tasted nothing like Pho should. Pho broth is ALWAYS made with beef, usually ox tails, and there is no oil used in the cooking. Clearly disappointed, he thought saucing it up with Sriracha and salt would help. 2 mouthfuls in, we brought it to their attention that it was not edible and asked if he could get another bowl that wasn't so... "bottom-of-the-pot". They quickly brought him another. Strange, this time it already had Sriracha in it and tasted just as bad as the last round.

He usually sucks Pho down in 8 minutes flat but he couldn't finish it in 30 today. "If I wanted a bowl of Ass Soup, I'd make it myself. "

My vermicelli was just as bad. The meatballs weren't grilled, they were fried and tough. And the beef is a thin slice wrapped around ground beef and is hor d'ouevres-sized. It was pink in the middle. Not a raw pink, but the discoloring that occurs to refrigerated meat that sat around. It was clearly recooked and microwaved because the beef slices had hardened and was not edible, but if you turned it over, it had that light brownish coagulated stuff that occurs when you boil meat. I didn't even get through half of it.

At least I knew the coffee would be great. Because it's pretty damn hard to screw that up. I was wrong. They don't use the potent french roast that is standard in ALL vietnamese restaurants. It was some Folger-y crap that was just brewed extra strong.

This is the first time that I walked out of a restaurant without leaving any sort of tip. I would never go there again. It's not that my standards of Pho are high because I'm asian; This place just sucks THAT bad.

Every thing is very fresh from the meat to all the veggies used in different dishes. The service is very fast and efficent. They also have something called coconut water that everyone should try. It is a good experience all around. You can also take it to go!

Pho Que Huong is a local Vietnamese restaurant that has locations all over town. This one is located in Addison and is one of their newer locations. The decor is quite nice and modern with a pleasant color scheme.

I would highly recommend their stir fried noodles and the vermicelli. Their soup bowls are good too.
