Outside of Madison Heights, it’s a challenge to find pho in Detroit. Thankfully Redford-based Pho Lucky offers traditional bowls of Vietnamese pho in large and extra large sizes. Get adventurous with the house special made with rare eye round steak, cooked beef, meatballs, tripe, and tendon. For something a little safer, the eatery also offers chicken noodle soup.
