    i believe most "pho" only restaurants close before 10pm, you'll have a chance of one of the "seafood" style vietnamese restaurants that also serve pho for them to be open past 10pm. I know Pho Pasteur on Linda vista is open past 10, and maybe Pho Traung on Convoy (people do not come here for pho, they come for all the other stuff =P )

    you might also want to list where you are located.

            Well, I dunno about "best" pho in San Diego, but my favorite open-late pho-serving Vietnamese restaurant is Saigon Restaurant on El Cajon Blvd. in City Heights (NOT to be confused with "Saigon on 5th" on University in Hillcrest!) -- open till 10pm Sun-Thurs, 11pm Fri-Sat. It has a huge menu, but pho is featured prominently in the front.

            Other favorites that I suspect aren't open so late, but I include anyway for whatever it may be worth:

            Ca Dao -- also on El Cajon Blvd, further east than Saigon, shares parking lot with World Foods Supermarket

            Convoy Noodle House -- on Convoy, logically. :-)

            Haven't eaten in Pho Pasteur for a long time, but I recall liking it too.

              tried ca dao on el cajon bl for the first time and have to say that lucky pho on mira mesa bl is still my favorite. i love the broth and noodles are consistent...plus its usually the least expensive! what a deal!
