The six of us ate supper at Sandoval's. The corn chips were good: thin and crisp. The salsa was also good, but could have been better. Our main courses were all very large and served piping hot, but all were fairly bland and tasteless. None of us was too pleased with the experience. Each couple paid with cash. In one... More

If I'm eating Mexican in Huntsville, it is at Phil's. The complimentary chips and salsa are delicious. The servers are trained properly and won't make you wait. I've had only one bad experience with a server at Phil's in over 50 visits. I like almost anything on the menu but typically stay with fajitas (enough to split with my wife).... More

Had too wait couple minutes for server that never showed...but another server saw that we had not been greeted immediately took over the table. This server took our order and got our beverages to our table within what seemed... More

I love this place, one of my faves for Mexican/Tex-Mex. It never disappoints. The service is always great, the food is always consistently good, etc. Highly recommend!

My wife try to eat lunch here whenever we are on that side of town. The tex-mex is always tasty, hot and quick, and the service is spot on. Chips are the best in town. This is a "can't miss" for quality and price.

The service is very good. The decor is great. Waiters are great and the food is good. My only problem is that the food is salty. A little less salt and the rating would go up for me. If the diner has no problem with that, it's a great place to eat.

Ate here Sunday with some friends and really liked it. We were from Birmingham and I'd compare this to our Superior Grill. Flavor of our fajitas was great (we got the steak and chicken combo) and shared them. The chips were thin, crispy, and hot and the salsa was just right. Wasn't an overly loud place which was nice and... More

My husband and I went there, I like the atmosphere is was pretty good, the chip and salsa was average, the food was good and flavorful but the price is a little high for Americanize Mexican food.

Everything about this place is wonderful . . . the crispy chips & salsa for starters, those delicious Mambo Taxi drinks and mainly the very tasty entrees. So rich in flavor! A nice touch is that free small dish of ice cream to top off the meal.

Phil's is always our go to Mexican restaurant. The service is spot on, the food is plentiful, and the fish tacos are the best in town! Plus, who can say no to free ice cream for dessert?
