good place to eat – It was my first time at Casa Sanchez this weekend and i had a blast. The Mariachi is awesome!! The food is also good. I had the enchiladas, they were delicious accompany with a Pomegranate margarita wich was also great. I highly recoment this restaurant for big partys.
Great food and music – We celebrated my mom's birthday at Cass Sanchez and we had a great time. The food was great and the music was really good. This is a perfect place for a large crowd. Once the music starts it's pretty difficult to communicate!
Another great restaurant added to my favs – My fiance, my cousin, her husband and I wanted to experience a new mexican restaurant with mariachi, and we found it. Casa Sanchez was super good. Its located in Culver city, kind of hidden, in a nice neighborhood. When we drove up we thought it was small but when you walk in its very welcoming. The huge double wooden doors make you feel like you're entering an hacienda. As you walk in there is a stage where the mariachi is and the tables are in rows but very roomy and big. The tables were decorated with glasses and a single rose and a candle lit. Very romantic (which was what we were looking for). Our food was really really really good. I got the Pollo Tapatio- its chicken stuffed with spinach and mozarella cheese covered with rose cream sauce. It was soooooooooooo goood. My fiance had the new york steak that was very good too. his potato was not fully cook but the waitress took care of that very quickly. My cousin had the chicken enchiladas that she really liked. And her husband had the salmon and shrimp with salad. He finished that up quickly. Our drinks were good I had a perfect cadillac (well actually two), My cousin had a pinappletini, which she loved. The guys had beer. The drinks were good but a little pricy. But in the end it was worth it. The Mariachi made it all better, one of the girls sang I will always love you by whitney houston, she was fantastic, I wanted to cry. Overall one of the best experience I've had at a mex restaurant. Now we are planning on going for Mothers days and taking our mom's.
Great job to the owners!!!!!
West LA mexican at its best – West LA is not the best place to grab Mexican food - so please, do not expect your going to have the greatest Mexican food in the city. Once you get over that, this is a pretty good place to eat.
The ambiance is the first thing you notice. The restaurant is not in a classy neighborhood but you would not guess that from the inside. The decor is upscale Mexican Restaurant, tables are nicely set and the wait staff are friendly. Fresh chips and guacamole as you sit is great too!
Thursday and Friday seem like the busy nights, mostly because of the live music.
The menu is not complicated, traditional Mexican plates and decent fish and streak selections. I had the fish tacos - excellent. The lady had enchiladas - stuffed nicely, cheesy and not just thin pieces of tortilla and sauce. The wine list and cocktails are not a let down, but they do not impress either.
I would highly recommend this place mainly because it is good food, nice restaurant, good service and great mariachi! If you like El Cholo (which is not great Mexican food anyhow) you should love this place and do not have to wait for a table.
If you want GREAT mexican food in the area, but not so nice decor, go to Pacos Tacos just up the street and wait 20 minutes to be seated.
pretty good – A lot of mexican food places taste the same to me.. this place is no different.. its good , but not bomb

Better than last time! – So this was my second visit to Casa Sanchez. The first time I went I took my boyfriend to dinner for his birthday. It was new and looked nice so we wanted to try it out. We weren't impressed. I ordered the fajitas and didn't care for them too much. He ordered a steak and didn't like it much either. The pomegranate margarita was good, though. For just the two of us I paid well over $120.00. I promised myself I wouldn't waste my time there again. BUT.....
It was my best friend's birthday and we offered to take her to dinner and She chose Casa Sanchez. I was disappointed and tried to talk her out of it, but thought "What the hell, maybe they have changed." We got there and it wasn't full to capacity. We were seated right away and our servers came to acknowledge us immediately. They brought us guacamole and chips about 3 different times because we kept finishing it all. haha! The waiter, Victor, spoke very good english and was very nice and helpful. He came to check up on us plenty of times and practically took over singing my friend the spanish Happy birthday song....LOL.
I chose to create my own combination this time and opted for the Chicken enchilada and chicken tamale. Both were very tasty. My boyfriend had the Tapatio chicken and said it was very good as well. Both of the entrees came with a small side of vegetables and they were REALLY good!
The mariachis were great as was mentioned in previous reviews, but the only downfall is that you cannot hold an intimate conversation....Then again, if you are going to a restaurant with mariachis then you probably would know that ahead of time....
All in all, the experience was great. Good food, good atmosphere, good service and good music! I'm definitely happy that I gave it a second shot! I'd definitely recommend it to friends! :)
Overpriced, bland, food. Rude service. – My girlfriend and I live in the area and were excited when this place opened up. We were looking forward to having another great mexican restaurant in the area. Wow were we let down. I tried the steak fajitas. Bland, no spice, no sides. I asked for some sour cream or something to put on it because the steak was dry and there were not many peppers and the first two staff members didn't speak a word of English and the waiter acted like I insulted him by asking. My girlfriends Tacos were dry and uninspiring. My beer cam with a lime that was covered in brown spots. I'm paying $6 a beer, is it too much to ask for a fresh lime? The tortilla chips were stale and flavorless. This is a good place for senior citizens that can only eat bland food. We barley ate half and went to another place for tacos. To top it off, everything on the menu is over $15. Mexican is usually cheap and I don't mind spending if it is really good but this place is horrible. Stay away. Whoever wrote the other reviews work here.
great restaurant – this place has a great atmosphere. The mariachi band was very entertaining. great place for large groups. Its dressed up like a vintage/classic mexico. The drinks are good and the food is Americanized Mexican gourmet.
Great Guacamole and Reasonable prices – We have now been to Casa Sanchez 3 times. Delighted all three times. You get free guacamole and chips as soon as you sit down. You can have dinners from $8.95 and up. Exotic Seafoods or Chili Rellenos. The quality is lightyears above El Cholo. Not even similar. The dining room is like a Beverly Hills Mansion with a beautiful stage. One song by the Excellent Mariachis and then one Flamingo Dance. It's like going to a royal Mexican Dinner.
Scrumptuos carne asada and Killer Cosmos! – It was the most delightful dinner I have had in years! Celebrated by sister's birthday and the mariachi band was super good looking and they can actually sing! Kudos Sr Sanchez
