My husband and I were out in the area and decided to stop for lunch. We got there right before the church rush.

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.

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

Thank DivaTe
