When we started visiting the museum years ago, we went in search of lunch one time... and have been going to Pho Saigon ever since. In fact, I'm starting to wonder if my kids ask to play at the Fire Museum just so they can have Pho Saigon afterwards.
This restaurant is just down Milam from the museum and is not especially fancy... but when you walk in, it is packed every single time! There are families, people on their lunch break and often some police officers. STILL, we are always seated within minutes and food comes very quick. (Last week I seriously spent longer waiting for my Chinese food take out order than I did feeding four kids at Pho Saigon.)
Once you order, the food is out in minutes and we're usually on our way home within a half hour. You can pay at the register whenever you want.
Parking is free and the lot is usually full... but we always find free street parking on the side street.
Check out our pictures... and stop by next time you are at the Houston Fire Museum (or Main Street Theater or...)!
