"Big Saigon" on Rockville Pike?

MDBBQFiend | Jul 7, 2008 11:19 AM

I was on Rockville Pike recently when I noticed that the former Jerry's Sub shop across from Wintergreen Plaza is being replaced by something called "Big Saigon." The sign says pho and other Vietnamese dishes. The liquor license application is in a window.

This place will be about 75 feet from Ba Le Vietnamese Deli, a place that makes banh mi, noodle dishes, pho, and more. Very reasonable prices for good food.

Does anyone out there know anything about "Big Saigon" and why it's obviously trying to knock out Ba Le, a place that's been around for a good number of years now?

Must be a story there...
