This is one review of the multiple times I've gone to this truck.

Tacos. Unique and delicious. I got one of each, Garlic Chicken and Pork Belly. I think the Garlic Chicken works best with this. I put the Jalapeno Aioli on it and it gave it the slight kick it needed.

The Pork Belly Banh Mi is delicious. This was the first thing I've had at this truck and it had me hooked. I had to tear myself away to try other things at this truck.

Pho. I'm a Pho Connoisseur, and I found the Pho at the truck to be mediocre. One reason, I'm used to more things in my Pho, but they only give you an option for one kind of meat. Plus, the spoon they give you is too small to actually eat Pho successfully.

Thai Iced Tea. Its good, not much to say. Never enough oF IT.


Why, oh why, do more Vietnamese trucks not offer veggie options? Thank goodness this one does, and it is delicious. If you get the fried egg on top,

Why, oh why, do more Vietnamese trucks not offer veggie options? Thank goodness this one does, and it is delicious. If you get the fried egg on top, it might even be quite literally finger-licking good. (As in I actually licked egg yolk and hoisin sauce off my fingers because no way was I letting that go to waste by washing my hands right away.)

I had the pork belly and mushroom-tofu, with spicy mayo on both. Both were good. I was worried about the pork because of other reviews on-line. Warm fat tastes better than cold and this was good and warm and cilantroy and good. After polishing off the maple glazed pork taco I had the mushroom tofu. Less meaty (no meat) but still so good
Whatever the bread they use for the taco, it is sooooo yummy.

What Did You Order?: Chicken Tacos/Iced Coffee • 
Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: Yes • 
How Much Did It Cost?: 9.99 

A friend and I both ordered iced coffee and tacos; I got the chicken, and she ordered one pork belly and one tofu.

We were both really happy with the quality of the food and flavor combination. In addition, the customer service was fantastic. I noticed the truck staff being very positive and friendly with customers ahead of me. They accidentally forgot to charge me for my coffee, and I said not to worry about it, but they gave it to me for free!

For the price, quality and experience, PhoWheels is a good bet. I'll definitely go back!

I have never had Vietnamese food before, and this was a great introduction. I was a bit worried the taco would be spicy, but the person who took my order was friendly and assured me it was not. The tacos are a good size and really stuffed with food. Everything tasted very fresh. My four star rating is because I would have preferred all white meat chicken, but even with that said, I will probably return to this truck and order the same thing. fresh.

Tacos were excellent loved the slightly fried shell; a bit pricey but well worth it.

My food came out really quickly, and the people working on the truck were nice. The sandwich smelled amazing on my walk back to my office, and I was not disappointed when I sat down to eat. This is an awesome sandwich. I'll definitely have to try their other stuff next time they come around.

What Did You Order?: Chicken pho • 
Is This One Of Your Favorite Trucks?: ABSOLUTELY 

Ordered chicken pho - comes in a great to-go bowl (not those too tall and narrow plastic ones from normal takeout). They have plum & sriracha sauce you can take to go. Gave me chopsticks and a little asian spoon (nice touch) - also comes with limes. Got to my desk and soup still hot. noodles cooked to PERFECTION. Chicken actually looked like chicken. the flavor was already on point but I added my normal 4 to go cups of plum sauce, 1 to go cup of sriracha and a squeeze of 2 limes. ABSOLUTELY PERFECT and just enough food!!! Also ordered the egg rolls, which were good but not the best i've ever had. I'd still order them again. Also got me a Thai Tea to go. Great flavor but they put TOO MUCH ICE so it didn't last long. Next time asking for just a little ice. One MAJOR complaint for me was the music they were blasting when I ordered. I don't listen to Lil Wayne on the regular but definitely didn't think it was appropriate for the work crowd to sit and listen to him rapping about sex and dropping F bombs and talking about a woman's anatomy in very uncomfortable language. Me, being me, I asked if they could find something else to jam to. They changed the station to something still upbeat but much more appropriate - so I tipped them ;) Overall, best to-go Pho i've ever had and beats many sit-down Pho spots as well. 2 thumbs and a pinky toe up!
