  1. Thanks for the notice!

    I thought their banh mi was delicious -- better than most! -- but there is no seating inside. Perhaps this remodel will address that issue?? I assume it is a remodel and not a permanent closure for them?? Is their sign still up?

    We walked across the street to a park and sat at the picnic table. However, I'd usually prefer to dine in.

    1. Thanks for the heads-up, they are my favorite banh mi in the area. I just hope they don't get all fancified now and raise their prices!

              YAY!! I'm so happy for them! They are such nice folks and Daniel has been working really hard to keep up the quality and making everyone feel welcome there! We love to stop by on our trips to vegas and LOAD UP. Their Bahn Mi is wonderful, but so is their bao... omg. I look forward to see what their new remodel brings! :D

                i did not know that they had a website. thanks.

              2. they're back! i was expecting new and improved. but with the exception of the new floor (and new layers beneath the floor), it's essentially business as usual; the young looking kid behind the counter as cheerful as ever. prices pretty much the same as far as i could tell. i can live with that.
