A reunion for my husband's Navy buddies happened in Huntsville. The person who chose Phil's could not have picked a better Restaraunt. Everyone was beyond pleased with the food and service. A special thank you to Javier for taking such good care of us.

We had never been before having just moved to town but were told this was the best Mexican food establishment in town. The owner (as I discovered later by a little Internet research) just happened to be our waiter that day. He completely lost his temper when after mixing up who ordered what at our table and proceeded to roll... More

The shrimp enchiladas were delicious, did not like the black beans.This restaurant was very noisy, not a good place if you want to have conversation with friends.

Phil is the owner and is so personal. Great management, cooks and servers. I love any of his dishes with steak. Chicken soft tacos are very good and the chips are so light and fresh. I have always left happy and full. Great place for any occasion. We go every month at least 2 or 3 times or more. It's... More

My husband I eat here monthly. I have never had a bad meal here. The ribs offered Fri-Sun are the BEST, so tender. Love their cheese dip and who can resist the free homemade ice cream? The wait staff is professional and attentive w/o being overbearing. Always a pleasing dining experience.

Got a little pager, mind you the lobby wasn't even full it was just us two and out 15mos old. We sat down and waited for a table and watched the lobby fill up. After waiting about... More

I have read many reviews of this restaurant and perhaps this was an off-day, but I found the service to be just okay and the food plain. We had a large group and the restaurant was very busy, so perhaps that is what contributed to the average nature of this review. That said, I will try it again because of... More

We, at one time, jockeyed between Rosie's and Phil Sandovol's for our favorite but you cannot go wrong with either restaurant! While we prefer Rosie's, Sandoval's is open on Sunday, just across the street and besides Rosie's and Buena Vista, no other Mexican restaurant in North Alabama compares! Go for the Fajitas and don't forget the ice cream dessert (freebie!)
