For pho purists, Glenwood Park’s Pho Cue might come off as some type of unforgivable sin with its mixture of barbecue and pho. But it’s a tasty union we never knew we needed. There’s only one pho bowl on the menu, and it’s served with a choice of pulled pork, brisket, chicken, or mushrooms. The broth is brisket-based and has a distinct smoky barbecue flavor.We recommend the brisket, which fuses perfectly with the broth and is so tender it falls apart immediately with one poke of a chopstick. The rest of the menu is just as unique, with barbecue banh mi and banh fris (saucier than the banh mi and served over fries) and smoked brisket egg rolls that prove we love anything fried in a pastry wrapper.
