My husband and I went here just for a few drinks for his birthday as he loves Margaritas. The bar area was extremely dirty....dirty dishes, glasses, even a blender 1/4 full of drink sitting on the bar . What a mess...We waited until my husband flagged the first person coming out of the kitchen and asked for some service.. He... More

Unfortunately, Casa Sanchez is the only Mexican restaurant in our area. Otherwise, I never would have gone there - and I don't plan to return. The place has gotten much worse over time. This evening, there was one waitress serving the entire restaurant, and she also had to get drinks from the bar and check people out at the cash... More

Located adjacent to a budget motel, we didn't expect too much. but wanted a respite from the ubiquitous chain restaurants on Rt. 15. Upon entering we were delighted to see an ad for a special on Founder's IPA from Grand Rapids, which we enjoyed with the chips and hot and mild salsa that came to our table. My husband and... More

We are on a college tour, visiting Bucknell, decided to try to find a Mexican restaurant for dinner and found Casa Sanchez in a web search. Our expectations were fairly low since we don't know the restaurants around here. The ambiance of the restaurant is very friendly and comfortable. There were a lot of families having dinner and a very... More

We love this restaurant. Always friendly service, unlimited chips and salsa as a free appetizer. I don't suggest getting water, it tastes like chlorine. Burrito macho is always a crowd pleaser, my husband I share. My kids get the #3 combo which they love. We feel the price is about right for a family four, under 50 bucks.

I don't get the 2 previous reviews because we just had dinner here over the weekend and we loved it. We were seated on the right in a booth and it was very relaxing. We had a friendly blond server and she brought everything out in a timely fashion and helped with our menu choices. To start we had the... More

I see the positive reviews and wonder if this is the same place. Everything was so far below average that it was almost funny. From the bar drinks to the entrees it was not good. Authentic is not important to me, but this place is neither authentic nor good.

We stopped on an early evening and found the restaurant empty. Our dinners were served quickly but all three plates were brown and unappetizing. The taste of each combo was the same with no freshness or anything special. We could have done better at Taco Bell which is not saying much. No management was around either. We won't be back....

Great food & price. Busy most nights, but worth the wait. Have not had a bad meal. Small bar but prices are great.

This is a very inexpensive authentic Mexican meal. They have a very wide variety on the menu Everything from the chips to the main course is outstanding. The staff is always very attentive. The place could use a little updating but hey it's clean and the food is good with good service. I would recommend if you like Mexican to... More
