“Yum. Satisfying that Mexican craving”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Huge plate of nachos really satisfied, fish tacos were wonderful! Small place (I heard Sanchos was moving just up the street soon), with open feel and sense of camaraderie amongst guests. Cold beer, great prices, it doesn't get any better.

“Loved the food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

Very cute taco spot conveniently located right on main road next to bus stop. Had guacamole with chips, pork wet burrito, and fish tacos. Very delicious, big portions and filling. Corn tortilla chips are homemade so that's always a plus. Owner is super friendly and hospitable.

“Great Fish Tacos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

This was a great find! Owned by a nice guy from Tahoe, this was Mexican food prepared the way we are used to being from Texas. Awesome prices and easy to find. Give it a try!

“Don't be fooled by looks! Terrible food, terrible service.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012

From the outside, Sancho's looks like a cool surfer-type fish taco joint. Don't be fooled. It was the worst fish taco I have ever had, and kind of expensive, too. If you are really jonesing a great fish taco, I recommend that you wait until you are in nearby Jaco, and go to the excellent "Taco Bar" instead.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

This spot has everything to be a hit: the location, the set up, the attitude....except the food.
The restaurant offers boring / mediocre mexican tacos. We had 2 meat tacos and 1 fish one and none of them were very tasty at all.
We really were not expecting wonders but they managed to disappoint us.
Tacos have so much to offer.....WAKE UP chicos, you can do MUCH better than that. The only way is up.
