As promised, I’ve been eating my way through Charlotte’s top “divey,” ethnic restaurants. Instead of grouping all of the different ethnicities together, I’ve decided to categorize them by ethnicity. Today we are talking about Charlotte’s top “divey” Vietnamese spots.

There are tons to choose from in the Queen City. I love a good bowl of pho or bun, and a good banh mi might be one of my all time favorite sandwiches. If you’re like me, then you need to eat your way through these Charlotte gems.

Here are Charlotte’s top dive Vietnamese restaurants listed in no particular order.
