Typical Tex Mex

As is typical of this family's restaurants, they hit the Tex Mex nail right on the head. Loud noisy dining room, but outside seating in warm weather is excellent. The Platters displayed in the restaurant are beautiful examples of the talent of Mexican painters. I would give my right arm to own... read more

We had a luncheon recently at Phil Sandoval's and it was very very good. Now, I like Rosie's too but Phil Sandoval's was just a little bit better in food and service. They both need some drink specials though. Kinda pricy on drinks.

Busy night but we only waited a few minutes. The food was delicious and delivered quickly. I highly recommend the fajitas. Carlos was a great server.

My husband & I had lunch here last weekend. It was our first visit, & we were both very pleased. The service was excellent, and we thought it was the very best Mexican restaurant in Huntsville. We visit Huntsville frequently, and we will be back to Phil Sandovals. They gave us soft serve ice cream at the end of the... More

I love going to Phil's. Food is always excellent and service is great. I highly recommend any thing on the menu. Best fajitas around for sure. We take family and friends often and out of town guests always want to go back when they come to town. One warning though, it will ruin a good diet!!

The food was good here but the service was slow. They also didn't get my order right forgetting my refried beans and it took them 10 minutes to bring them out.

Phil Sandoval's is my most favorite Mexican restaurant in Huntsville. The pace is crowded -- BECAUSE IT IS GOOD!!! I have never has anything approaching a bad experience there -- the food is always great and the fish tacos are my favorite. Great chips and salsa -- the pace is great -- I highly recommend.

Another Rosie's concept restaurant. Our favorites are Casa Nachos, big fish taco, combo fajitas, chicken taco salad and chicken poblano soup. Home made flour tortillas- try their whole wheat ones - so good! Unlike Rosie's, Phil's is open on Sunday.

Chips and salsa are great. Tortillas are made on the spot. Quick and attentive service. Really like the rice. Portions are good sized. Very reasonable prices. Somewhat noisy, making it difficult to carry on a conversation.
