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 been here twice now. The food is not as flavourful - herbs, spices - as I have experienced in Mexico and in other Mexican restaurants. The dishes are neither skimpy nor generous. The decor is nice, the wait staff are coolly friendly. The prices are high for what you get. I will only go back if a friend... More

I tried Sanchez again tonight,t after a long hiatus. I asked the server if they'd taken fajitas off the menu, to which she answered "we've never served fajitas". Interesting, as I've eaten them there on several occasions in the past. Later, when I asked about how to order a choice where the ingredients would be separate (ie. not piled on... More

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.
