The hot cakes are very huge and thick could only eat 1/3 of it. The service is good but you will have to wait. The biscuits and gravey are so good. Prices reasonable. People have reviewed the food being bland, its breakfast that's typical. Don't hold that against the place. Overall it is good and the interior has so many random objects in it, interesting place.
While extremely busy, the wait was not long. You will be intrigued by the decor inside...reminded me of stepping back in time and being at grandma's house. The food was incredibly delicious and the largest portions ever...at a very low price! We got the all you can eat breakfast and would suggest that you do not need to go this route...or plan to be miserable because it is so good- you will eat more than you need. Hot cakes were melt in your mouth heavenly. And while the food was great, Paul made the experience fantastic. What a friendly, kind, hardworking man!! Highly recommend this spot while you are in town!
My mother and I like to go to Phil's because it's very close to our house and easy to get in with a wheelchair. I love their spaghetti and lasagna special on Monday and the chicken and dumpling special on Wednesday. The specials cannot be shared. They give you a huge amount of food, but they will give you to go boxes and we always have plenty to take home for dinner or for the next day. The coleslaw, I absolutely love. It's located across from the Oaklawn race track parking lot right off Central Avenue so give them a try.
We visited Phil's again on this weekend's trip to Hot Springs,. My husband had the hamburger steak (again) and this time I ordered a patty melt, which I haven't had in probably a couple of years. In both meals, the meat was extremely tender, well seasoned, and generously portioned.
We love to come to Phil's and today was no exception. Good food and a great value. If you don't have an appetite, don't come. The pancakes are huge and the breakfast yummy. Our waiter, Paul, was exceptional. Very nice and attentive. Can't wait to come back sometime for a good ol' southern homecooked meal for lunch or dinner.
