“Mexican Great”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 October 2013

Great chips and salsa, fish tacos are great,black beans and rice are wonderful. I have had a lot of different items on the menu and have not regretted any of them. Great staff, great overall restaurant. It times it can get loud, but that when it is very busy and guests are having a good time.

We go here a lot for lunch when in Huntsville on business. Never a bad meal and I switch it up regularly.

“Yummy fish tacos!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 October 2013

Best fish tacos in Huntsville, and the Margaritas are very tasty! Service is usually very good. Restaurant is very noisy, but that is typical of Mexican restaurants in the area.

“Best Gluten Free Mexican style”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2013

While visiting with daughter in Huntsville she took me to this Mexican restaurant because I can only eat gluten Free meals. They bake their own corn chips, served up fresh. Then our waitress brought the Mgr. over who suggested a Gluten Free meal with fresh corn tortillas topped with grilled chicken, beans, cheese and stuff. Wow was it fresh and great tasting. It is very hard to find any fresh GF meals prepared as well as this one. My thanks for taking extra steps to prepare it for me and others that can only GF.

“Huntsville's only restaurant serving homemade tortillas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2013

Service and food at Phil Sandival's has always been excellent. Tortilla Chips are warm and the salsa tastes fresh and is full of fresh spices and lots of cilantro. I would recommend just about anything off of their menu, but for an extra special treat, order their fajitas or something with fresh tortillas as you will be amazed at their Homemade tortillas. No other Mexican restaurant in Huntsville/Madison makes homemade tortillas and theirs are worth a trip just to sample what a fresh tortilla tastes like. They also make homemade wheat tortillas. At the end of your meal they include a dish of soft serve ice cream which IS the ice cream on the cake. Will definitely go here again and recommend this place for authentic fresh Mexican Food.
