This a great restaurant in Huntsville, convenient to Madison as well. My wife and I really enjoyed our lunch there. The service was great and had complimentary ice cream afterwards.

This is my favorite Mexican restaurant in Huntsville. The food quality and atmosphere is very similar to Rosie's nearby (which is very good) but I prefer the food selection at Phil's. The bar is particularly fun with excellent servers who seem geniunely pleased that you are there. I also get satisfaction from doing business with Phil Sandoval who is just... More

When relatives visit we try to take them someplace that they can2get in Iowa. This is a large, clean, family run restaurant with an extensive menu. Chicken enchilada soup with coconut flan dessert were both excellent. Fresh guacamole with the house made chips are both fun to eat. Maybe we should go more often?

Being lactose intolerant it's very difficult to eat out, but my friends wanted to eat here, so I went..after scouring the menu...I finally just ordered the poblano chicken soup, no cheese...it was just ok...just wasn't impressed by this place.

We live in Middle Tennessee, and we drive to Huntsville when we want Mexican faire. Nothing here compares to Phil Sandovals. Everything tastes so fresh. In-house tortillas for the chips and salsa. Favorite dishes are fish tacos and shrimp tacos. If you even remotely enjoy coconut, get the Coconut Flan. Have never had even remotely bad service. From seating staff... More

When we visit family in Huntsville, we always find ourselves at Sandoval's for a great Mexican dinner. The food, the service, the margarita's are all outstanding. A great place for a fun family dinner.

Thin chips are a family favorite. It seems we can eat a lot and not be as stuffed as at other Mexican restaurants. Plenty of seats, can easily handle larger groups. Great salsa, solids like onion, tomatoes, in salsa. Excellent flavor and taste especially the pork for me. Different rather than beef and/or chicken.

This is my "go to" place in Huntsville. It is consistently good and service is always great! From the margaritas to the soft serve ice cream at the end, it never fails to satisfy. We have never had anything on the menu that was not great! Highly recommend!
