The only good and authentic Vietnamese restaurant in the University of Minnesota's Minneapolis campus (stadium village).
I come here frequently to order one of their two soups: pho or bun bo hue.
Their pho is delicious and authentic. The broth is more on the sweet and savory side, which I like. The only spicy condiments they provide are jalapeños and sriracha sauce. I would really love it if they had hot chili oil and fried garlic. Their pho is a little over the normal price, but not enough to be a big deal. It may not be the best pho in Minnesota, but it sure does a hell of a job to fulfill your cravings.

I've been eating at this place since I was little. They have the best burgers in town. Also they have the best onion rings I've ever had. I have no idea what is in that special secret batter but it is amazing. The O-rings are so tasty that we drive there from Blaine to get them!
I should also note that they have a fantastic breakfast menu too. We absolutely love this place! My kids love this place as much as I did too. They love to nibble on the free popcorn that is a help yourself option on the bar side of the restaurant! If you are in the mood for a great burger, you must check out this place!
