Great Mexican Food for Huntsville

I've eaten at most of the Mexican Restaurants in the area, and have found that Phil Sandovals is about the best of all. The chips and salsa are great, and the food was excellent. It's a busy place so go early to avoid the crowd.

We were traveling on little sleep and found this gem on a busy Sunday evening that fell on Mother's Day. Despite the host stand being a bit disorganized and giving us a buzzer that didn't work, we didn't have to wait more than about 20 minutes for a table. They were well-equipped to handle the rush despite clearly being one... More

First, the service is absolutely excellent. We've eaten here several times and have never had bad service. The food is also excellent. My favorite dish is the chicken enchiladas. It's covered in a delicious sour cream sauce that's to die for. Salads are great, tacos are great... It's all great. Try the top shelf margarita while you're there. It's the... More

Stopped in for dinner with a colleague and was pleasantly surprised. I had the Acapulco chicken nachos because I wanted to try something different. The raspberry chipotles sauce isn't too sweet and pairs well with the pineapple and chicken. Very impressed with the dish. Server was knowledgeable and attentive. Will be going back.

Phil Sandoval's has become one of my "must visit" restaurants, whenever I visit Huntsville. I love Mexican food, and Phil Sandoval's is consistently great, time and again. I never know what to order, because it is all so good! Phil's is a great "Meet some friends and stay a while" kinda place. Phil's is a "Sister Restaurant" to Rosie's Cantina,... More

We have been going here since it opened. We thought we were going to "Rosey's, but were very pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is typical of Mexican restaurants with the exception of the wait staff which is very team oriented. Phil’s is head and shoulders above the “canned” or “home made” underwhelming fare of other “Mexican” dining in Huntsville. Their flour... More

We went here for dinner because it is a favorite of a local colleague. I usually do not eat out at Mexican joints (I'm not a big fan of mushy yellow, green, white and brown stuff all swimming on a plate the size of an olympic pool, which is the usual American/Mexican I have experienced). This place has the usual... More
