We always stop here when we are in town and have always had good food and this time was great also. I got the fish tacos and they was great. Our waiter was Carlos and he was on his game super nice guy and great waiter. We will be back!

The food is always tasty and the servings are generous, even the lunch specials that are served daily to 4:00pm. There is just something special when when I enjoying Tex-Mex at Phil's.

Every time I've been here I haven't been disappointed. The food and service are always very good. The recipes aren't typical of a Mexican restaurant but seem to have a fresh spin on say, your favorite tortilla dish. All the familiar elements are there but they seem brightened up a bit. Everything I've ever had was delicious. The noise level... More

I met two of my friends for lunch for my birthday. Phils is one of our favorites. It didn't dissapoint. Food and service were on point. The birthday sopapillas were the icing on the cake. We had chalupas and fajitas. Yum!

The food is here is as good as most other places - not appreciably better - but the service is incredibly quick which makes it ideal for a good and fast business lunch.

We developed a taste for Mexican food while living in San Antonio. When we moved here we had trouble finding a good Mexican place. Phil's is the best in Huntsville. The steak fajitas are excellent. Try the pork burrito. Fabulous!

I've been eating here ever since Phil split off from Rosie's. They are very similar, but Phil's has free ice cream. Always fast. Always good.

I eat at Sandavol's on a regular basis. The food is constantly good. The staff is always friendly and attentive. A group of 8-10 of us from work meet there once a month. They are very flexible with groups. They serve groups just as quickly as a 2-4 top.

Phil Sandoval's is a favorite place! The service is always outstanding. I love to sit on their covered patio and listen to tunes either alone or with friends. The décor makes you feel like you've left Huntsville and gone south of the border. The wait staff are polite and speedy, and they look snazzy in their brightly colored ties. Their... More

The meal was very good. The chips were not the style I like, but they were fresh-made and plentiful. A few shots of hot sauce kicked up the salsa a notch. I selected the White Shrimp Fajitas, one of their signature dishes. They were very tasty, but I had two complaints. The shrimp comes in a white sauce that is... More
