Small, cozy restaurant. The enchiladas with tomatillos sauce were excellent! And the cerviche appetizer was the best! Liked that they served Sol beer too. Service was good too.

We went twice while in Whitehorse, once on our own, once in a group of 14 doing a Habitat for Humanity build. We found the food very good the first time and recommended it to the others. Some said it was the best Mexican food they had ever had. Service was friendly and efficient, atmosphere warm and inviting.

Had dinner here in August 2014. The food was very fresh and homemade by the server's mother, who owns the place. Warm and cozy atmosphere with beautiful Mexican decor. I'd recommend this place to anyone for a casual but tasty dinner. Both romantic for couples and great for families.

This food is priced accordingly (authentic Mexican north of 60 is rare) so it's quite expensive. But it's also really good and filling. Service is fast and friendly. Will go again.

Sanchez provides very good Mexican food. I can compare it to restaurants in San Antonio and good Mexican spots in Toronto. It stands up well for north of 60 and south of 49. I don't know about Mexico never having been there. It is not fancy (it is basically a Quonset hut with a roof on it) but it is... More

This may be the best Mexican food we've ever eaten. Service was super as well. Furnishings not the most appealing, but still OK. The three-milk sponge cake was great for dessert. We liked this place so well we ate there both nights we were in Whitehorse. Family run by friendly folks.

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
