Great Mexican Restaurant

Service was great as well as the food. Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate the evening we went. Atmoshere is laid back and serving staff were friendly and courteous. Would recommend if you are in the area.

Authentic mexican not texmex! Small and cozy. Great service. Hand spun drinks and margaritas. Entrees about $20. Best enchiladas I've had on Canada. Black beans Spanish rice extruded true flavors. Do yourself a favor, eat here.

I really recommend this place - for a couple it was a great night out. We were *so* hungry from hiking all day and found the margaritas and burritos to be just right. Yes, a little pricey than what you would pay elsewhere but we found all Whitehorse restos a little more $$ - think how far the food has... More

Enjoyed a dinner this week at Sanchez's in Whitehorse. The Yukon is a long way from Mexico or anything Mexican for that matter but the taste of Mexico is here. We were warmly greeted when we arrived at the restaurant and parking is no problem. The place was pretty full for a Thursday night. We enjoyed the homemade chips, guacamole... More

It was good and came with beans, rice, guacamole, chips and choice of chicken, cheese, beef or bean enchilada. I had the chicken and... More

It was our first time in Whitehorse and we sought a place for dinner. Upon entering this establishment, we noted the attractive decor. That was the end of our pleasant visit. After ordering our meals, the waitress asked if we wanted chips and salsa. I was surprised when my husband asked, "How much" since this item is always free, but... More

Went there a second time and GOT YELLED AT BY THE OWNER! Weirdest experience ever. I asked for two soft tortilla's with a small amount of cheese melted in the... More
