Growing up a basketball fan, I find it easy to watch a game at the many sports bars in Downtown Lodi. The only problem is that many sports bars are usually loud. This is why Saigon Grill is special.

Upon entering, the sound of ’60s Motown classics like “My Girl” from the Temptations fills the restaurant with a relaxed vibe. Seating is abundantly spread across two rooms and quickly assigned by the waitresses. Waters are available upon request; however, the selection of teas, juices, slushies and local wines are fun beverage alternatives.

As one of the few Vietnamese restaurants in Lodi, Saigon Grill is the perfect place to try out a bowl of pho. For the unfamiliar, pho is simply a base of rice noodles and soup. The excitement comes from adding extra ingredients such as beef flanks, bean sprouts and a variety of sauces to make the dish customizable to your liking.

I’ve eaten pho with a number of friends and all of them differ on what goes into the dish. If there’s one lesson to learn, it’s that there is no wrong way to eat pho.

Saigon Grill is located 5 W. Elm St. They are open 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Friday; noon to 9 p.m. on Saturday and closed on Sundays. Call 209-368 5152 for more information.
