Really zesty tasting dishes at an affordable price. Salsa and chips are perfect. Great service, and they give you a little dish of ice cream at the end to top things off.

The service was good and the wait staff very friendly. The food was just okay though. Flavors were flat and nothing special.

Three of us went here for dinner a few days ago. Food was great. The server's voice was annoying and she leaned in all the time. She was so rushed, she made us feel rushed.

This was 2nd to Rosie's, then Rosie's changed their fish tacos. Why do restaurant's do that? Rather go to Phil's, good all the way around.

Food was bland. No flavor at all. Our waiter was polite and attentive but another table's server squeezed between my chair and a support post, bumping me numerous times. She had ample room on the other side of our table but I guess she didn't want to take a dozen extra steps. Very rude. I do not recommend.

Sometimes when the other Mexican restaurant across the street is busy amd we just want a different taste we come here. It's good. But being from CA, our Mexican food is more authentic, in Al they use aloft of cheese sauce instead of real grated cheese. But overall it's good

This is where you go for higher end tex-mex. Interesting and flavorful takes on classic dishes. It's a little more expensive than some of the other Mexican restaurants around, but the food is infinitely better.

Whether it is a business lunch during the week or dining with friends in the evening, I know that the food and service is consistently good. There are many menu options and the staff will make sure that any food allergies are taken care. You must try the fish tacos, no one in Huntsville does them as well as Phil's.... More

I go here a few times a year. It's a nice place to eat and the food is what you expect at a nicer Tex-Mex restaurant. There are gluten free options and allergy friendly options too. They can just make it from scratch if needed...plus separate gluten free chips. Just make sure to talk to your waiter. The atmosphere is... More
