Authentic Mexican cuisine

Sanchez Cantina is run by "real Mexicans". The food is yammy and the staff is very friendly. Never had a bad experience there!

Food was great! It was very authentic. Service is friendly, and the food is cooked to order with very little wait time. It is a bit pricey as we paid 21.95 Canadian for an enchilada plate. 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

For authentic and delicious Mexican food in a unique setting. The owner and staff are very friendly. Try my favorite dish: Rancheros.

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

Sanchez is the primo place to eat in Whitehorse. Delicious southern Mexican food with authentic ingredients. We miss Otelina and her restaurant when she closes in winter to head south. Be warned though, that it isn't fast food. Particularly on busy nights, you need to be prepared to wait a while. Worth the wait, though!

Food tasted good, but we found pieces of glasse in our meal. The plate was not charged but we were scared for the rest of our meal. We were ready to spend some times to try drinks and dessert but we left shortly after the incident. I beleive the owner/staff should have stand up for their restaurant and show us... More

Great authentic Mexican food on offer. Short menu but enough variety to satisfy most people. A bit pricey, but then everything is in The Yukon. Great service.

Been a couple of years since I last ate here but the food was still good. The patio was well used and the staff were friendly. The cost was more than I remembered but the quality of the food was there.

We've been here a few times now and always leave happy and satisfied. The food is tasty, the ingredients are fresh and the service is fast and friendly. The guacamole is delicious! The matriarch of the family can be a bit gruff, but she comes around and talks to all of her customers and that kind of attention is welcome.... More
