“Authentic Mexican meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2013

We visited this restaurant and had an authentic Mexican experience. The food was great and the menu was varied.
All the flavours reminded us of previous visits to Mexico.

“Unspectacular, healthy food, outrageously priced.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

I gave Sanchez another chance, having written it off years ago for slow service and poor value.

I ordered the taco frito. $15. ONE TEENY roll-up (small corn tortilla) with a couple tablespoons of dry shredded beef. Almost no sour cream/salsa.

ONE. It would not even have been appropriate as an appetizer. Luckily, there was a good pile of cheap salad and plain beans to fill my hunger. It was a meal worth maybe $7-10. Maybe they could do this for so long because we had no other choice for fairly authentic Mex food. Not the case anymore.

“Not tex mex but real mex.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013 via mobile

Just ate at this comfortable spot. Last place to even come close to overall good mex experience was in dead mans flat between Calgary and Banff Alberta.but this ones the best. We love good mex and this quality is only found south of the US border. Memories of manzanilla or Guadalajara . A bit pricy but don't mind if its all there. Good food,good service,good atmosphere and cold Negra Modelo what more do we need. Hot weather no bugs this is the Yukon isn't it . Who knew right.

“Good Mexican Food and Good Service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

Sanchez Cantina had good Mexican food and good service. It is a small place, and is brightly decorated inside. The folks at Sanchez Cantina make a tasty fresh salsa, and an awesome guacamole. The food is plentiful. The service was friendly, but slow.

“Yum Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Excellent food, excellent service, extensive menu and a choice of eating inside or outside make this place a top place to eat. Good value across the board.
