I've been eating at the Cantina every annual trip to Whitehorse, over the last 7-8 years. The food is always delicious, the prices reasonable, the service and atmosphere great.

We haven't been here for a few years as this place had a history of very slow service - that's not the case anymore!! The food has always been excellent and now you can get in and out of here in a flash! My 13yo son LOVED the tacos and the chicken Tostada's have always been my favourite. The atmosphere... More

I had heard the Mexican at Sanchez Cantina was good, and I was pleasantly surprised to find it wasn't just good, it was great! I lovely my enchiladas. My end-of-the-week margarita was also very yummy. The feeling was comfortable, cheerful, and family-run. The service was good. I'll go back the next time I'm in town, and bring my friends and...

Good selection of authentic Mexican food at reasonable prices. The portions are large and the service is very good. Too bad though that you leave here smelling of fried foods.

We love Mexican food so we were delighted to hear about this restaurant. It didn't disappoint us. The food was very tasty and we felt we has good portions. My husband had the steak burrito dinner and I had the veggie burrito dinner. We are used to chips and salsa being "on the house" but are a menu item here,... More

When we arrived the door was unlocked so we walked in. The owner greeted us and asked us to leave because they didn't open for another 5 minutes. She sent us outside into the cold to wait for 5 minutes. If we weren't meeting friends there we probably would have left. Once we got inside we ordered our food which... More

We arrived right as Sanchez Cantina opened for lunch on a Tuesday. Approximately 1/3 of the main menu items were not available. The pico de gallo was disappointing and the food quality was overall average. My colleague worked in Mexico for several years and was very disappointed (but this is Whitehorse, which is awfully far from Mexico) in the food.... More
