Very small and AC is open window. Appears to be local favorite and crowded during our visit. Meal was good and service worked around difficult conditioins

It was reasonably authentic, but I waited an hour for my meal, which was overpriced, and not very tasty. It was only mediocre. Of course I'm used to eating good Mexican food in the United States and Mexico. The service was slow and not very attentive. They were extremely busy though.

This place is a must visit -- the food was amazing and fresh. I missed good guacamole, and they delivered. The staff were very friendly, and when it started pouring rain, found us a place inside. I'd recommend making a reservation, as they had to turn people down who showed up without one.

Sanchez is always a safe bet for a good lunch or dinner. The food is top quality now for years. By now we ate everything on their menu and there is not a single dish we couldn't recommend. Every time we come back to Whitehorse a stop at this authentic Mexican restaurant is a must.

I can't say enough good things about this place! The food was so good that even my picky toddler enjoyed his meal. Everything was fresh and perfectly seasoned. Highlights: The guacamole was so good I wanted to use my finger to get every last morsel out of the dish. And I highly recommend the strawberry margarita - very fresh and... More

Food here was very good and fresh. The place was busy which is always a good sign! We each tried a different dish and they all were good. For sides, both rice and beans were great

Now that the weather is nicer we might go back so we can sit on the deck. Our first experience was almost scary because there were so many people packed into a tiny restaurant. I had to walk around two other tables to get to my son who was sitting at the other end of our table! That being said... More
