    yWe have dined here several times prior to a Diamondbacks game. Usually the service is quick flows smoothly. It was a busy Sunday at noon and with a convention in town, we were glad we made a reservation. We were seated immediately and our server was right there after chips and salsa hit the table. We ordered drinks and food at the same time, but didn't receive our cocktails for 20 minutes, with the food quickly following. I don't know if the breakdown was the bar but when I asked our server about the drinks it still took 10+ minutes before they arrived by another server with no explanation. We will go back but I'll be cautiously optimistic about speedy bar service.

    The server was extremely sweet and made the night. She was kind and attentive like a friend would be. The food was really good as well, you could tell they offer quality that others don’t. Bar made great drinks and would definitely recommend.

    Open seats at bar due to Dbacks game. Chose to sit there versus a table. Nachos are fantastic. Come with extra cheese at serving. They have Church Music on tap, so good selection. Margaritas are always good.

    I went early for Happy Hour and had the Guacamole, chips and salsa to start while waiting for a friend to show. LOVED them all, chips were free, salsa was to die for great and guacamole did not disappoint. I then ordered the Chicken and Pork taco's from Happy Hour menu and they ROCKED. Was very impressed at how fresh and flavor packed the taco's were and the salsa was a send me not just seconds but thirds with another batch of fresh chips. LOVED this place and the service was excellent as well. PLanning to go back again soon, as was very impressed and very happy with my meal. HIGHLY recommend.. get there early as when I left there was a wait and much busier than at 5:00 p.m.

    Our server was ehh. My instruction to him on how I would like my food prepared was not followed. I requested for my rice and beans to be separated from the Pork Chile Verde. When I received my food everything was together and topped with lettuce (gross) which was not noted on the menu, or the pork meat was shredded. I picked off the lettuce while everyone was eating their meals. I asked our waiter for a tortilla and after 10 minutes of him not coming back, I had to grab another waiter. After he came back everyone at my table was done eating so, I asked for a to-go container and told him how the food and service were. He apologized and stated, that he will not charge me for the food. Oh, I forgot to mention, I ordered a soda with my meal and our waiter never asked me if I wanted a refill. Our server does not know how to follow instructions and has a short memory. I will not be eating at this Blanco Cocina + Cantina - Downtown Phoenix
