This restaurant shares parking lot. You must park a few parking lots away on a busy day (-1). The place has a Mexican theme. This my second visit. The chips need a little bit of salt (-2). The salsa is not authentic Mexican salsa (-3). It fells as if they opened up a tomato paste can and canned tomatoes to... More

We lived in Southern California for 6 years after we got married -- my husband is from Los Angeles (grew up there) and we are fairly picky about our Mexican food. We didn't visit this restaurant for the longest time after moving here just because of the name (didn't sound very Mexican). We tried other places that were only ok... More

I was really excited to find a restaurant with mole on the menu. Unfortunately, I won't be ordering it again if I go back. The mole was too sweet with hardly any spice. Also, the salsa was unexceptional with muddy, flat flavours. Not fresh tasting, more like a jar of Pace. However, the guacamole was good and the 1/2 order... More

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.

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.

Thank Sandy E
