We usually have good experiences there..we had a very slow server...we were always trying to find
Him to order..instead of relaxing, we were getting stressed because we had to keep looking for our
Server.

It was way too loud. To cold and we were inside. They should never keep those side doors open. And the food was so incredibly hot. Ordering shrimp fajitas should not be an inedible experience it was so incredibly hot and I ended up having to send it back and then was late coming it was just not a good meal experience.

Great atmosphere, staff efficient and friendly, and food was lovely. Can be loud, so this isn’t necessarily a place for a romantic date, or possibly elderly. BBQ Pork Tacos were outstanding. But, if you are a male, or a big eater, not a lot of food. So, prepare to order an appetizer or just enjoy the fresh chips and salsa. Staff was very friendly. Would definitely go back.

This is my favorite restaurant. However, the experience last night was disappointing. The food was mediocre and sub par. Hopefully this was a one time situation. :-/

This is a popular place, no parking available however they do offer valet. Made our reservation on Open Table. We were seated right away. Husband had the carne asada tacos, I had carnitas tacos. Both were good. Served as the small street tacos.

The food has gone downhill - no longer anywhere close to authentic mexican cuisine - the guacamole is hardly fresh and the portions are all off. Not a great dining experience and not worth the money. Plenty of other great Mexican restaurants in Scottsdale to choose from!

We (15 of us) had a great time and appreciate the effort the team put into personalizing our menu. The food and drinks were great; however, the service wasn’t as great as I’m used to at Blanco, but not bad.

The management team was great. We had 2 separate reservations. Unfortunately, the tables were across the restaurant from each other, thus our party was spread out. The management team was able to move one of the tables closer so our entire party could be together. Really appreciative of the team for pulling this off!!

Blanco used to be one of my favorites, but it just isn’t what it used to be. Mediocre food served luke warm. Fajitas should be served sizzling. Ours must have spent sometime sitting as they were just barely warm. The tortillas were really dry around the edges. The rice and beans were really good. The highlight? Warm chocolate cake which was dense with a little cinnamon sprinkled ice cream. Next year I’m sure we will celebrate my daughter’s birthday elsewhere.

Food was disappointingly tasteless. Not sure why. We love tacos. Atmosphere, service and hospitality was nice but the food was bland.
