Blanco is not t fancy looking nor the location for quiet conversation and an intimate evening. This is a restaurant for fun and good food and we found it to be a bustling restaurant we would come back to. The Mexican street corn was good but for us too much mayonnaise and not enough grated cojita cheese but still zesty and tasty. Yes, a little messy. The BBQ pork and corn cheese crisp was truly delicious and a SW take on pizza. My husband loved the pork tacos plump and full of meat. We are salt free eaters so we did find the food a tad salty but still delicious. We thought Alyssa had great command of the menu.

The atmosphere and food was amazing!! Perfect place to eat before a game! Chicken tortilla soup was the best I ever had. The traditional carnitas taste like the ones I had in Mexico!! Definitely will be coming back!!

We were there at noon on a Saturday, right when the opened. I had the Tiger Shrimp Fajitas. Amazing service, fantastic and interesting food. The shrimp was marinated in a beautiful, tangy sauce. Would wholeheartedly recommend.

Excellent service and the food was served quickly particularly given it was a Friday night and there was a baseball game in town. Portions were generous and very delicious.

My first time trying this place and I was amazed by the overall experience. We went on a Sunday afternoon right after the phoenix suns game and it was packed! The service was amazing, the food was great, the drinks were good and the vibes were amazing! Luckily we made reservations because apparently on a Sunday afternoon this is the place to be. I will definitely revisit this place again

Food was good but would like just a tab bit more options for appetizers. Drinks were OK but a little light on alcohol. Not worth the price for drinks.

Awesome venue and the food was delicious! Only downside is the background music is too loud - it's hard to have a conversation, or just makes folks talk very LOUD to be heard.
