A WELL-KEPT SECRET, TUCKED AWAY IN THE LINCOLN DISTRICT…

The place some are calling the best place for barbecue is called Tho Tuong BBQ, a Vietnamese restaurant on South 38th Street in the Lincoln District. The restaurant has been in business since 1997. They have Vietnamese barbecued chicken hanging from racks in front of the window and the aromas coming out of that place must be amazing! Tho Tuong’s is down the street from a beauty school, a Starbucks, and a few massage parlors.
