I can compare this with lace with Rosies as I ordered the same plate at both places, steak and shrimp fajitas. This place gives small portions compared to Rosies. Additionally, the host service at this place is not as good as it could be. I asked for seating for one and they immediately assumed that I wanted to sit at... More

Place was packed, I expected more... had salsa that was either straight out if a jar or made with canned tomatoes. The food was pretty pitiful - I asked for black beans instead of refried and got a soup, which wasn't appealing. Also, had a pulled pork burrito, ingredients tasted incredibly bland and old... It was one of their signature... More

For the life of me I do not understand the 5 and 4 stars on this place. They are over priced and food is VERY bland. There drinks hardly contain any alcohol if any (but still charge you for the alcohol). You can go to a better Mexican places for better food and price. You have been warned.

Better than Rosie's. The fresh tortillas were a big hit. The steak fajitas were the best I've ever had. Everything was spectacular. Good service and the place was neat. Overall spectacular on all points.

Had not been there before and was ready for typical Mexican food. When I entered the parking area I noticed a large line waiting which can be a good sign. Excellent outside decor and a nice front area while waiting. Once seated ordered my usual Mexican entree with expectations that it would be just that. However was I surprised when... More

I like this place better than Rosie's in Huntsville. The chips are thinner and really nice. Salsa is very good. The food is excellent and well made. I would go here before any other Mexican restaurant .

Phil Sandoval''s Mexican Restraunt is the best. The food, service, atmosphere and price is head and shoulders above any other Mexican restraunt I have eaten at. Go one time and you will return.

We got reservations and they had a table with all of the seating set up for the babies and adults. They had a variety of Mexican dishes to try. The prices were reasonable for what you got.
