Outstanding, homemade Mexican. The rojo is ridiculously good.
Lived in the Springs for 30 years, but moved to Albuquerque about 10 years ago- was back to visit friends/family and started missing my chile fix, so thought I would visit what was one of my favorite 'mexican' restaurants. Kinda surprised at the change-over to this new place but 'what the heck, might as try it as long as i was there'. Loved the ambience and the wait staff was great. The food - not so much. Thought it was overpriced and so-so. Maybe I have gotten spoiled eating some really great southwestern/new mexican food in 'el Burque'.
Very nicely surprised for a town that has many mediocre Mexican food choices. Locally owned, which is important for those who wish to patronize the mom and pop cafés, while avoiding the big box franchises. Great ambiance, nice wait staff, food exceeded our expectations. Will be back, and will tell our friends to try it out as well.
Ate there again recently because my wife was craving the pork tacos...it was terrific!
I will have to agree with Dave. Not sure what's up with this place?? It is obviously ran by an amatuer with no clue of how to run a restaurant. The interior decor looks like a teenager's bed room, the service was horrible and the attitude of the waiter was even worse. The food was okay but far from great and I have to say I have had better margaritas from a bucket. To be honest this could be the worst dinning experience we have ever had.
Dave...wow, what a different experience you had.
I have eaten there a half of dozen times and love it. It is sophisticated food, the place is very clean, the food extremely fresh and handcrafted, the manager works hard (which can be mistaken as being pre-ocuppied, but hey, try working that hard and being charming in the same breath...I think he does a good job at that).
The food is excellent...and I am not paid to say that, nor am I related. I have several friends who feel very good about Q's as well.
I don't see how people are giving this place such rave reviews when we had a VERY BAD experience there. The staff and manager always bickering; asking if we had reservations when the place was not full, seating us at a table that was difficult to sit at (high top) and by the door. They were sitting people by the windows and outside in the HEAT AND SMOKE to make it appear busier than it was. The food was so-so and did I say that the attitude of the manager was HORRIBLE the entire time? I feel that the people that like this place are friends of the owner or paid to say so. DO NOT GO THERE! BTW they NO NOT ask for ID's for the drinks (no one was asked) and they add tips to your amount after you sign the card receipt!
Simply marvelous. Atmosphere, food, drinks, staff...one feels right at home.
This is one place you need to try if you have not yet! The food is by far the best, and the owner is a great gentleman! Stop by now because you are missing out!
I don't trust any of this...I for one, will not be eating at this place. If they were truly this good they would not have to pull this flash mob posting campaign
When honest questions ensued wondering about the veracity of the majority (if not all) of the comments re Sancho's, there appeared no less than four responses from those same posters declaring hate as the reason for the posts. Come on people, what are you, in the third grade?
One cannot help but wonder if this is the best way to advertise a new restaurant.
Very bad in every way
I happened to stop about Four months ago,and I've been back three times a week since . Don't knock what you haven't tried. Sanchos has the best food in town!!! I'am not family, but I'am now a friend, Duane
Sanchos is the best thing to happen in this area. We love their food, especially the avacado pork burritos!!!!! I stop after work and order for dinner. Their tacos are to die for. Steve and his staff are super. It would be great if he could have an inside sit-down area for cold weather. We keep spreading the word.
Duane and Pat Helm
interesting turn of events...I always read Indy reviews before heading out...but this hi-jacking of a trustworthy system really undermines this tool for checking out local places to eat.
I was going to try this place tonight, but not now...I don't like being tricked and fooled with like this.
I bet it is just more melted American cheese whiz over grocery store flat bread.
The food might be fine but unless you get some reviews from people that aren't family and friends no one is going to take this seriously.
I would rethink this practice. I have run restaurants and marketing is key. This isn't marketing it's spamming and it will turn people off.
The fact all the family and friends only give 5 stars and there are no outside reviews will make me NOT eat here.
Indy, please go there and do a review.
Now place all those posts on Yelp next. Wait to see the blow back you will get.
Sancho's has the best food around! All the comments may sound like their from family and friends because no matter who you are once you try the food, the owner and staff make you feel like family. The food and the great service is what keeps you coming back. So those of you who hate it would seem that your comments had exactly the opposite effect that you were trying to accomplish-Nice try but the people have spoken Sancho's is one of the BEST places to eat.
The last two times I've been there, the food has been mediocre at best....and seems like fewer and fewer people patronizing the once famous Amanda's.
Sanchos is an exceptional establishment. I have known Stevie B since high school but that has no bearing on the tatse or quality of the food is which is top notch. Keep up the good work, haters are your motivators
This is coming from a family member and goes out to those that have had negative comments to make. You are putting the cart before the horse. Have you tried the food yet? You need to get your facts straight before posting. Not all that have made comments are family and friends. Some are just customers that have come by and truly enjoyed the food and service. You are implying that they are not telling the truth. How rude! Sanchos has only been open about 3 months so that is why you are starting to see comments come in. Many people know Steve for the work he does in this community. We encourage our customers to tell others if they like the food and they do so don't be so negative. By the way, NO it has NOT had a negative effect on their business. Sanchos is here to stay with good food and friendly service!!!!!
