Great Food

Went in for dinner my food was very good authentic mexican. I was unimpresed by the Kitchen as it appears all residential grade with the exception of the dishwasher. Not normally a concern but at the prices they charge I expect a more professional kitchen.

I have eaten here over the years as the food is always quite good, however, I stopped coming in to eat inside the restaurant because of the poor ventilation and the very strong (eye burning) smell of heated oil (no industrial-kitchen type fans in the little open kitchen). In the summer months I would come and eat on the deck... More

I wish I could cook like this at home. The salsa is the best I've ever tasted, I just can't get enough! All of the food is amazing, you won't leave hungry, that's for sure. They have a small kitchen, so when we go in a big group, we always pre-order. Sitting out on the patio in the summer is... More

I eat lunch here regularly and have done for years - always great food, great service and the food is always fresh. Good food takes time.

By far the best Mexican food I've ever had. Friendly staff and great prices. Don't go if you're in a hurry though, they operate out of a very small kitchen and good food takes time.

I've eaten numerous times at Sanchez Cantina and have loved it every time. The food is great - very flavourful, the service is excellent, the prices are reasonable and it's just a nice place to be.

Went here expecting an average Mexican meal, not the case at all. The restaurant is family run and the service was great. Food was very authentic and delicious. If your staying in Whitehorse I would recommend eating here for sure.

I stumbled across Sanchez on my first trip to the Yukon. I used to live along the US/Mexico border, for many years, and know and love Mexican food. I have been back to the yukon four times now and with each trip I eat more and more meals at Sanchez. The food is great. The menu/options are great, with obvious... More

It is simpe food, traditional. Portions are small for the price and on a few occasions they run out of food.
