Best tortillas!

This is our fave Mexican restaurant in Huntsville. The fajitas are delicioys, the chips are perfect and the tortillas are the best I've ever had. Oh, and don't forget about the complimentary ice cream that's so creamy. Definitely recommend!

I had the shredded pork burrito plate and my partner had the beef fajitas. I thought the shredded pork had chunks of fat in it and the refried black beans were not authentic Mexican in my opinion. The fajita plate was good and my partner had no complaints. We both thought the margatias were too tart. With so many Mexican... More

I absolutely LOVE going to Phil Sandoval's, everything is superbly made. I have had a lot of the entries and have never ever been disappointed. Staff is friendly and the restaurant is clean. Just remember to finish off the dinner with your free ice cream! YUM!

Great food. We started with the chicken tortilla soup which was superb. We took our family including her three kids ages 6, 8 and 10. Everyone had a wonderful meal. I am Mexican and grew up eating Mexican food in Southern California. This restaurant is on par with some of the best mexican food I ever had. You can tell... More

Yummy food, but kinda pricey. The service was good, but I didn't realize that the ice cream is free with every meal until we were sitting at a cheaper drive thru window...

Mr daughter, two grandchildren (ages 5 & 2), and I went to dinner at Phil Sandoval's Mexican Restaurant on a Thursday at 5:55PM. The host greeted us pleasantly, ask how many were in our party and seated us in under five minutes. Our waiter, Carlos, was at our table within 30 seconds of our being seated. He took our drink...

We eat at Phil Sandovals at least monthly. The food is consistantly good and the lunch menu is a very good value. I recently tried the ribs and they were the best I've had in a long time. I would highly recommend anything on their menu. They also offer free home made ice cream after your meal.

An offspring of Rosie's Cantina is still maturing. Phil Sandoval still needs to sharpen their flavors to stay true to its lineage. Although it has uniquely different setting and menu selections, it stil need some work on quality Mexican flavours in their food. Specially for those who enjoy tasting spices and textures that normally accompanies authentic Mexican cuisine. Keep working... More
