The food at Sanchez Cantina is excellent. The Cantina is very small and can feel very crowded on a busy night. You will be very impressed with the food and the very friendly staff. They also mix great drinks and the selection of beer is good. I do feel that unless children are ready to test their taste buds this... More

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.

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.

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.
