Delicious, homemade Mexican food! If you are only familiar with 'chain' Mexican food, read the menu descriptions carefully. We had a chile rellano and a 'gringa' (a cross between a burrito and a quesadilla) the beans were unlike any others I've had and the guacamole was simply superb. The chile rellano was stuffed with carne asada that melted in my... More

We sat outside on the patio and had coronas and great Mexican food. Wonderful guacamole and salsa - everything was homemade and delicious. Our only complaint was that the beer was not very cold.

Wow, who would have thought you could find great mexican outside of the southern US, but we did! We stopped in Whitehorse from a Holland America tour and our tour guide recommended Sanchez. Well, being from Texas, we were pretty skeptical, but were wanting a change from the typical fare we had been having so we gave it a try.... More

Our group (6 people) had heard complimentary reviews from our friends who had dined here. We stopped in for a lunch, but had a very short amount of time. Upon asking the waitress if we could be served and complete our lunch within a half-hour, she checked with the kitchen staff and assured us that it was possible. They were... More

A small family owned place, Sanchez has been around for a long time. The atmosphere is authentic Mexica, the service is usually good and the food fresh. A good choice for an intimate meal and conversation.

To find a Mexican restaurant in the Yukon, much less a GOOD Mexican restaurant is rare. Sanchez certainly fits the bill. It's kind of a weird set-up tho. When I walked in the door I thought I'd walked into the kitchen by mistake. I almost walked out again - but no ... that was the right door. We were served... More

Every meal we have had here has been delicious and authentic. The black beans are always a must for a side dish and the chips are home made. Winter hours can be unpredictable , staff is always friendly. Tight seating and can be smoky from the kitchen.
