We don’t know why Lucky’s Pho is always empty, but we do know that there’s never a wait, so we’ll take it. It’s a pretty bare-bones kind of space with linoleum tabletops, a soda fridge (note: they don’t serve alcohol), a bottle of sriracha on every table, and a long handwritten list of bubble tea flavors. While the pho and vermicelli bowls are great, get your hands on their banh mi, which is overflowing with flavorful pork, pickled veggies, cucumber, and aioli. If you love that idea but have an inexplicable fear of baguettes, they also do banh mi tacos.
