Banh Mi: Is there a more delicious cheap lunch?

Made a long overdue first visit to the 88 food court on Comm. Ave. yesterday and got two banh mi at Pho Viet's. The beef version was very good, the pork even better. I asked for spicy and it was, just a total taste sensation, the heat mixing with the sweetness of the pork, cilantro and crunchy veggies. Each sandwich was $3.65 (I couldn't finish two; my wife devoured the leftover half-a-beef banh mi when I got home).
While Pho Viet's offers a full-menu of Vietnamese food, across from it is a banh mi-only stand whose name I don't recall (started with a B). Didn't see a single customer. I wonder how its banh mi's compare to Pho Viet's.
And I wonder if there are other delicious bargains available at the 88. The other places looked enticing, but they'd need to have something great to lure me away from another pork banh mi.
