Pho14 was awesome. Who do you recommend?

On a recent trip to DC in January, I was craving some pho so my girlfriend and I went out to Columbia Heights to try Pho 14 (on Park Road NW between 14th and 15th). It's a new place, but we went during lunch time and it was really busy, so we sat at the bar instead of waiting for a table. We had a great time!

The food was really fresh and came out quickly, which was great because we were starved. We ordered spring rolls to start and both got the fatty brisket pho. The spring rolls were a good portion size and everything was incredibly fresh and really tasty. We ordered the smaller bowls of pho, and even though we started out starving we couldn't finish everything. Next time we go we might either split the bigger one with the spring rolls or both get the big bowl and take home the leftovers.

They have more than just pho, even though we didn't try any of the other entrees. Two guys who sat down next to us both got sandwiches (#44) and they looked amazing. I'd definitely go back there again. The staff was friendly, service was fast, and it was delicious pho. Plus, it was very cheap! For an appetizer, two bowls of pho, and some tea the total bill was only about 24 dollars. We left very satisfied, and I'd definitely recommend it!

Has anyone else eaten at Pho 14? Did you like it? Thoughts?
