Free icecream!

This restaurant is basically the same as Rosies across the street. Some variations in the menu but very similar food. Better chips and salsa at Phil's. Service is always good and the wait is usually considerably shorter than Rosies. Kids love the free ice cream.

Nothing but good to say about this restaurant. High quality Mexican food, sort of Cali-mex style. Hot, fast, fresh, and delicious. Not a huge menu either- easy to decide what you want. We had the fish tacos and the shredded pork burrito - split our orders like we always do so we can share. Couldn't decide which one was best.... More

My husband and i are in Huntsville for a tennis tournament. Tonight I checked TripAdvisor for a good restaurant in the area of our hotel. Sandoval's Mexican Restaurant looked promising. Oh my goodness, it was so good. We ordered the Chicken Chimichanga to share. We also ordered cheese dip to add to our salsa and nachos. More than enough food... More

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Huntsville. Food is very great, not as noisy as Rosie's and good service.

What can I say, this place is always busy. Very popular place. Outstanding food. If you show up during peak evening hours you may have a long wait for a seat. If you don't want to wait, walk next door to the Old Hiedelberg for some awesome German food.

Stopped in here for dinner while on a work trip and it was a treat! Service was excellent, food was very good, and the house Margaritas were really good. Definitely would go back!

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
