Great food and even better margaritas!
Excellent environment with great food. Love this location. Looking forward to going back.
Happy hour half priced tacos and $6 margaritas! So good. Highly recommend the pulled pork and tilapia tacos as well as the coconut chili margarita.
Best service and food! Thank Kyla!!
Always a great experience with Blanco. My usual go-to is the 17th location, so it was my first time visiting the Kensington location. As expected, the ladies that served us were hella awesome, super sweet and had a great balance of checking in on us without it being too much. Food was excellent, and drinks delicious. Only critique was I like to half/half my chili coconut drinks, starting spicy then taper off to mild spice/no spice but they stayed the same spiciness level. Apart from that, it remains my favourite spot whenever I need some comfort and good vibes.
Kyla was amazing, and the energy at this new location is super fun. The best taco on the menu is the Pulled Pork for sure - order it! They should re-evaluate their Mushroom Taco ingredients however, room for improvement.
First time coming, the fish tacos were delicious. We also got the pork which was good and the brisket was disappointing, cold and didn’t taste good. The waitress was a gem, she said she was new (2 weeks) but was very sweet and attentive to everything. We will definitely come again!
Great margaritas and service. Just wish patio was open.
We did not have food which is why I gave it a good rating, but it did look good and we plan to return to try it on taco Tuesday, but the drinks during happy hour are a must to try. Great selection and tasty
Too many unsafe Covid practices to mention. Music so loud everyone has to yell at each other to hear. Horrible atmosphere. Won’t go back.
Fun place, great service. I look forward to returning ☺
It was great!
Everything was perfect! Great drinks, food and service. Happy hour is the best there. Such a good deal. Great atmosphere too. Thanks!
Food tastes very nicely
My fish tacos were good but a little cold. Otherwise no complaints!
I find the music a bit too loud, but that’s probably just me
It was a fun atmosphere but the food was sub par and missing majority of what was stated it would have within it, Taco Bell quality. That could’ve been overlooked but the drinks were not well made and tasted like straight booze and also missing ingredients that it stated would be within it. No chasers/lemon/lime for shots provided either.
Food was underwhelming, bland and expensive. Server was phenomenal and was the highlight of our experience. Really need to revamp and invest time into improving their menu/offerings.
I love the food. It was a great atmosphere and liked my seat that I reserved.
Great smokey pineapple margaritas and delicious tacos 🌮
It was very loud. Food was average. Service was good
Always have a great time here, would highly recommend! Appreciate their COVID protocols!
Always my favourite place to go absolutely delightful!
Bad service and the food is okay but not good enough for the money
Friday night business dinner and drinks. Great music, amazing service, well crafted drinks, and some good food.
Heat not working. We were all cold at the end of supper.
It was our first time at the Kensington location and it was awesome! Our server, Kyra(???), was excellent as well and had some great recommendations! We'll be back for sure! Oh, and the artwork is pretty hilarious too!!!
Our server was really good. Great experience!!! Would recommend to everyone.
Drinks were delicious food was good. Service was okay, our waiter wasn't very friendly.
Had some of the best tacos I’ve had in awhile. Also had a great happy hour menu
Server seemed like she was too busy to give great service. Friendly and good drinks and food!
Delicious food and margaritas. Great service. Thank you!
Awesome night! The margs and guac were both really good, our server was kind and helpful, I would definitely go back!
Amazing food, delicious margs, and wonderful service!
Restaurant was a good destination and guacamole was very good but main meals were average
Such a cozy spot. Love the decor.
The service was excellent, The chilli coconut margarita was good. The Queso is the right size for an appetizer and the shrimp Diablo tacos were absolutely amazing and a must to try. The Fajitas were also delicious. We will be dinning there again soon!!!
Wonderful happy hour dinner!! Our server was Ah-MAZING, and super attentive, and hope too see her the next time we head over! Great drinks as always!
Great atmosphere, server was very nice, blueberry marguerita was really delicious, and chips and guacamole and cheese dip were good.
Great food and you can’t beat the prices !
Thanks for the review Jenna! Looking forward to seeing you in again soon. If you would like a reservation at any time, feel free to email me at email@example.com Cheers!!
Didn't like the shredded chicken on my taco salad. Would prefer a grilled piece if chicken, at least 3-4 oz.
Hello! Thank you for the review. We are more than willing to accommodate guests with modifications to their dishes, such as the substitute for grilled chicken on your taco salad. Looking forward to seeing you in again soon! Cheers.
