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!

Seated 13 of us at around 1:10 pm. Restaurant was half full. Placed our order with our most efficient server. Had appetizers and drinks. Then ordered our mains. Food did not come together. It came one by one so the people who had their food first finished and then came food for our 12th & 13th person. When brought to... More

Phil's is a fantastic Mexican restaurant. It is owned by the same guy that owns Rosie"s Cantina just across the street but Phil is his manager and uses some of his grandmothers old recipes. The service is A1 the food and atmosphere is great. Go and enjoy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have been here a bunch in the last 5 years. The food is always great. This place is in a big strip mall and there is plenty parking. The building is very big and can handle a large crowd. Wait staff is spot on.

Whenever we come to Huntsville we go to Phil's - at least once. Appetizers are great, white shrimp fajitas with cheese sauce, Polo with peppers...all excellent. Good service- great wine pour compared to others. Great local place.

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.
