Phil is the owner and is so personal. Great management, cooks and servers. I love any of his dishes with steak. Chicken soft tacos are very good and the chips are so light and fresh. I have always left happy and full. Great place for any occasion. We go every month at least 2 or 3 times or more. It's... More

My husband I eat here monthly. I have never had a bad meal here. The ribs offered Fri-Sun are the BEST, so tender. Love their cheese dip and who can resist the free homemade ice cream? The wait staff is professional and attentive w/o being overbearing. Always a pleasing dining experience.

I have read many reviews of this restaurant and perhaps this was an off-day, but I found the service to be just okay and the food plain. We had a large group and the restaurant was very busy, so perhaps that is what contributed to the average nature of this review. That said, I will try it again because of... More

We, at one time, jockeyed between Rosie's and Phil Sandovol's for our favorite but you cannot go wrong with either restaurant! While we prefer Rosie's, Sandoval's is open on Sunday, just across the street and besides Rosie's and Buena Vista, no other Mexican restaurant in North Alabama compares! Go for the Fajitas and don't forget the ice cream dessert (freebie!)

While visiting my sister, we decided to get get some lunch and I offered her the choice of places, so we ended up at Phil Sandoval's. I have never been a huge fan of Mexican food, but I was pleasantly surprised at the selections and prices. The waitstaff was prompt and helpful, and were quick to refill drinks or bring... More

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.
