    Blanco Cocina was a fun and cool place to spend my wife’s birthday dinner in Nashville. It was great food and great craft drinks and we were well attended to. They let us bring our own cake and served it to us after dinner! Would def return. The crisps are great, don’t overlook them for a nice group app or even entree if you like Mexican pizza.

    They didn’t have the one menu item we both attempted to order. The server could not have been more disinterested. No apology, or even a shred of concern, real or otherwise. Then she disappeared for so long that I left money for the drinks and left. Truly awful experience.

    Food was fantastic. The chicken fajitas had a strong orange sauce on the chicken that made them difficult to eat otherwise we enjoyed everything. Our waitress was condescending and rude. She sounded annoyed even though we were greeted with a smile she had a tone in her voice that was fake and annoyed. Her tone was that of are you almost done. Was really looking forward to eating here and made reservations far in advance and would not recommend due to the service. I worked as a server for 10 years and I know fake. We left without finishing our food to just not have to deal with her.

    We love this spot! It’s our go-to reso when we’ve got tickets for an event at the arena. The menu makes everything sounds delicious and we haven’t been disappointed by any choices yet. Staff is super knowledgeable and do a great job of explaining portions and giving suggestions. Our waiter was also very conscious of possible allergies based on our order modifications and made sure to clarify any before leaving our table. Also, hands down the best guac I’ve ever had in Nashville. 10/10 recommend!

    Great menu with a nice variety of Mexican (TexMex) dishes. Quite good but just not the kind that we're used to coming from Southern California which is Sonora style food for burritos, enchiladas, tacos and refried beans.

    I had the Chicken Tonga enchilada, 100% worth it and good portion. Husband had the Machaca taco, also 100%. Definitely get the queso!! Decently priced as well, one of the cheaper lunches we had this weekend, but still kept the same quality!

    My wife and I had dinner here before a concert at the Ryman. We both like short ribs and had never had them before in a Mexican restaurant, so she had the tacos and I had the burrito. They were both excellent. The salsa that comes with the complimentary chips is some for the best we've had - not the usual bland tomato-flavored variety. This had a nice medium spice level and a great chile flavor. The food prices were very reasonable, but the drink prices are high. Our server, Halley, was very attentive and friendly.

    The service was outstanding, from the hostess to the server. Professional but also kind and personable. The food was ok but not very exciting. I had the Chimichanga, one of their signature entrees. It filled the void in my stomach but it was just kind of bland. I’ve had better from a taco truck for a lot less.

    Getting our table was super easy. Food was quite a wait which maybe why I’m being so harsh but 30+ min for just ok food is not worth it. My boyfriend absolutely did not like his Carne Asada tacos stating they (and the chips) were way too salty. I had the chimichanga with short rib and really liked it. The elote was our appetizer and it was not authentic at all. Definitely a Tex-mex style place Also no horchata
