Any suggestions for a low-key (read, family-friendly, not fancy-schmancy) Vietnamese restaurant in Chicago, preferably with killer pho and bo luc lac? Thanks.

    Tank Noodle on Argyle is a good starting point. Argyle (between Broadway and Sheridan) has long been the epicenter of Vietnamese cuisine in Chicago.

    Check out their menu here:

      Simply It in Lincoln Park! The area it's in is kind of annoying, but the menu is extensive and everything they make is incredibly fresh and delicious. Soups are out of this world. It's across the street from Wise Fools Pub. Oh, did I mention it's unbelievably well priced? I used to order takeout from this place for an entire week and spend only $60!
