Another cash-only option on Charlotte Pike, Kien Giang is a solid choice for Vietnamese-style pho in Nashville.

Miss Saigon

Copy Link

One of the most popular pho places in Nashville, Miss Saigon pours out 10 different styles of pho to satisfy that craving. Feast on pho loaded up more traditional beef or chicken — or change it up with lobster, spare ribs, or a quail egg.
