Pho is amazing. It's not traditional pho and the beef is cooked tender and flavorful. The broth is inventive with Vietnamese broth combines with asian mushroom and bok choy. Best pho hand down.

Special. Rare. Ethereal. Brilliant. To be honest, it's a ridiculous shame that Pizza Party is on the same list as this place. Pizza Party was co-founded by an incorrigibly mean woman who should never have been allowed to operate in this amazing neighborhood. She is a blight upon an otherwise fantastic community. I will do anything I possibly can to boost up a redoubtable establishment such as Lucy's up against a cancerous institution like Pizza Party, which is famous for dubious service, or Boobie Trap. God bless our neighborhood. May it live a thousand years.

The menu here is tiny—pho or bahn mi—but you can't go wrong with either dish. The pho broth is rich and hearty, whether you get the vegetarian broth or opt for some brisket. Speaking of beef, the meat here is incredibly tender, especially when it's served on a flaky bun with pickled veggies and bean sprouts.
