Not known as a Mexican food buff, but really like Blanco. Good Happy Hour deals and quality of menu is noteworthy.

We're snowbirds who have spend the last eight winters in Scottsdale and have eaten at Blanco many times, both by ourselves and with guests. We've never had a bad meal, and the service has always been excellent--even at times when the place is crowded. Good work!

Met friends for lunch and so enjoyed our whole dining experience at your restaurant. We got there at the right time just before all the tables were occupied.

Happy hour wasn't very happy. The happy hour items are so small you would be better off paying full price and getting a decent size order. We sat near the bar, so the bartender was our server. He was SO busy, it was difficult to get his attention. At 5:50, we wanted another drink at the HH price, but we could not get his attention. After 15 minutes, we gave up and just got our bill. Will not be back for happy hour!

Food and service both excellent but the place is noisy. The music is not necessary.

The food was subpar. We had to send back our food and wait 30 minutes for a replacement meal that came back wrong a second time. My son decided to just leave rather than try again. We sat with empty drinks for half our meal. I did not feel like we had good service or a good experience and will not be returning.

Good food, I had the short rib bowl and recommend it and our server was very nice. But a little noisy, which is why it only got 4 stars.

Got a taco order and it was wrong. The server looked confused but kept apologizing Luke a kid, but didn't actually fix it... just always seems to be a little bizarre did experience there.

I am usually not the one who selects Mexican as dinner option. This was 2nd visit and enjoyed it once again. Good happy hour options fir drinks and appetizers. I especially liked their house IPA. Make reservations and be ready for tight parking availability.

Hands down my favorite restaurant. I come to Scottsdale once a year, and I eat at Blanco every single night. Their food is delicious, the servers are so kind, and the ambiance is delightful whether sitting inside or outside.

We loved our server!!! He was awesome!!! The skinny margaritas are the best in Scottsdale! I also thought the grilled Mahi tacos were fabulous! We'll be back again soon! Thank you :-)

Overall, not bad. We selected seating on the patio. Server really pushed the chicken cheese crisp but it was greasy and rather disgusting. My colleague ordered the fajitas which he enjoyed. I might go back again but would make my own selections and I’d stay away from the cheese crisp!

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.

Go to the one at Biltmore. The service at the one on Scottsdale Rd. is terrible.
