It’s been five years since Pho 20 opened in Avon and the restaurant has become a favorite for dine-in or take-out among locals and visitors.

Owners Cong and Chloe Hoang have maintained a consistent ethos: Keep it fresh and keep it simple.

Whether you’re a meat lover or prefer vegetarian or vegan food, Pho 20 has a variety of healthy and savory options from spring rolls to soups and noodle bowls. Many selections are gluten-free as well. Cong says the restaurant can work around allergies.
“We use really quality products,” he shares. “I’ve been in the pho restaurant industry for close to 15 years and I have knowledge about it all, like what types of noodles are good, the best quality and the best texture.”

Happy Hour at Pho 20 is pretty standout, too, with $2 draft beer and $3 house wine from 3 to 6 p.m.

The restaurant opens at 11 a.m. for lunch and serves throughout the day until 9 p.m.
