Pretty good mexican food and service is very good making the meal very enjoyable. Much better than across the street, food and service. I like the chicken enchiladas or fajitas along with dos exi beer on tap.

I have been to this restaurant three times (maybe 4) I am not really sure but I enjoyed it every time I went. You will always get good service with a smile and the food is not bad. I am not a lover of Mexican food but I always find something new to experience.

Had a great experience at Phil's today. Took customers to enjoy a business lunch and they did not disappoint. Our server was fantastic. The food: chicken enchiladas, shrimp quesadilla and big fish taco were all amazing. Add in the great salsa and cheese dip and "BOOM". Today they were great.

We love this Mexican restaurant as it has great food and atmosphere is a step up from other Mexican restaurants. It even offers FREE ice cream for dessert. Service is good and plan to go again soon.

Although it is a good drive from the office on Redstone Arsenal, "Phil's", as it is known there, is the go-to place for a lunch or dinner for 2 to 20 hungry folks. I last went as the guest of honor on the occasion of my retirement. Our party of 22 was seated immediately because the organizers had called ahead.... More

typical lunch hangout, very busy which is unusual, because food had no taste whatsoever. I am picky and have had excellent Mexican food and this definitely isn't it. I will only spend my money on something that is worth it, so I won't be going back.

Fresh and cost effective are the adjectives that come to mind. Clean, spacious, loud and colorful you are transported to a different place. The staff is courteous and well informed. Happy hour is an added bonus and do not miss the SALSA. While in Huntsville visit this place for lunch or dinner. Grade B+

Decent but not an eye catcher nor a place to revisit. There are much better quality restaurants not that far from here. Atmosphere ALMOST made up for the food...

Across the street from hotel. Friendly bartender. Very good margaritas! Food came in less than five minutes. Tried the tomales - pork and chicken. The pork was the better of the two. The sopapillas were great!
