Always consistent, friendly, and good quality food and service. What more can I say. Want a modification, no problem.

We went here for lunch....the menu is massive (likely too large) and the portions are even bigger. I only wish the quality had been a bit better. Nice patio but overlooking an empty lot and empty stores, wow.

There are water stains and black stains all over the ceiling. I can't say for certain what that's all about. The service is slow. The place is filthy. The bathrooms are outside. The owner is very barky. The food is disgusting. I ordered a Gyro and it was more like spam with bones in it. The sandwich buns are stale and taste like sawdust. Half of your order is always missing. The endless fries are not that great, and since the service is so slow, you're almost ready for the check when you're still wanting to order more fries. (In my opinion, they should notice you're out of fries and bring more. All standard restaurants bring chips or bread if you're out.) We've tried going here a few times now, always thinking it will get better, and it's still horrible.

Stopped at Phil's Place for a late lunch the other day and had a terrific meal with friendly people and service. Got back and checked Tripadvisor to leave a review and saw it was rated #1 in Fountain Hills. They deserve it. Just bought a house in FH and will make this a regular stop.

Phil's Cafe is now located 16852 E Parkview off of Saguaro in Fountain Hills and is the same restaurant as Phil's Filling Station; Phil's WAS on Glenbrook. (A different restaurant is now at the Glenbrook address called Jimmy's Subs.)
We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner at Phil's. The menu is varied, the service is outstanding, and everything we ordered was excellent. We returned several times for breakfast. The lunch menu is mostly sandwiches and soups. We had terrific pizza for dinner. It's a comfortable place to eat not only because you know you'll find something you like but because the wait staff is so incredible. "Phil" is a friendly guy, too.
