Pho in Pittsburgh? Need advice from people who actually know what they are talking about!

Thanks, I'm completely willing to settle between somewhere between bland and too salty. I've always had pretty good luck with Pho places that have a number in their name, I will definitely check that out. I gave Vietnam's Pho in the Strip a try last night, it was ok, pretty salty, but they gave you peppers unlike the other places, so that's a plus....

Pho in Pittsburgh? Need advice from people who actually know what they are talking about!

Greetings, I just moved to Pittsburgh. I'm sitting here sick and wanting some pho. It's pretty clear to me from reading Yelp reviews that people don't really seem to know what the H they are talking about regarding pho. I've had both Tram's and Pho Minh and am just kind of bemused by how passionately people are defending such average pho.

Then I remembered Chowhound from my SF Bay Area days, and that I generally fall in line with chowhounders...So, where should I get pho in PIttsburgh? Do I need to give one of these places a second try or what?

I've given up completely on finding pho with lemongrass or a place that gives you the pepper rings, but there has to be somewhere where the beef isn't gristly and the broth doesn't taste like water, right?
("it tastes like water, but with a smack of ham....")
