    Bland guacamole. Margaritas tasted like they came from a bottle. Chimichanga was loaded with what tasted like frozen meat thawed- no taste. Mahi tacos were mostly coleslaw - minimal fish . Go elsewhere for Mexican food. Only plus was ample parking.

    We had reservations (a must!) and asked to sit outside - no problem. It took a while to be greeted but then things went well. When my food arrived (cheese enchiladas), it was literally swimming in grease. the server offered to have it made again quickly and the manager came by to offer me other foods while I waited. I have noted how greasy the food is in my last review. Service was excellent and above expectations.

    Nice Mexican restaurant with good atmosphere with slightly above average food. Drinks are good. I recommend going for happy hour at the bar and having a few drinks and a bit to eat.

    We love the food and drinks at Blanco! The only downside is the service is very slow and we weren’t attended to, but the server was busy with a party table at the time.

    Small portions considering the high prices. Poor service. Too loud. My quinoa salad was supposed to have dates and chicken. The server never came to check on us so I was not able to have it corrected. I will not recommend or return.

    It’s a Mexican Cheesecake Factory. No dedicated server. Everyone is helping everyone and therefore multiple waiters ask you the same questions but non is attentive to your table. Food was marginal. Ambiance is ok. Noise level off the chart. Trainee server grabbed our water and half full cocktail glasses as she presented the bill—not just carrying them away but sticking her fingers in each one to carry them together. They comped the drinks; however, definitely not the greatest overall experience and won’t come back. Too many choices.

    My family and I made a reservation to celebrate Father’s Day early and what a disaster. Two of our four meals were served cold, one had a live fly crawling on the tacos and the presentation of the appetizers were unappealing. We waited over an hour for our food and 30 minutes for a drink for my son. I have never had such an awful dining experience where the manager was un-accommodating and lack ownership. We will never come back to your establishment or recommend it. The fact that a live fly was on the taco crawling makes me want to report this, as I’m not sure of the cleanliness of the kitchen. Truly disappointed!

    Food was great but the service was incredibly slow. Had to ask for tortillas to accompany the fajitas. The fajitas were cold by the time the tortillas arrived. The service was very slow even though the restaurant wasn’t busy.

    The food was delicious but the service was horrible! We had to ask numerous times for water, they forgot our order for guacamole and we waited for over 30 min for drinks and water! Never brought the requested crema for the chips, didn’t say thank you when he returned our change! The bill was almost $200 and with no “thank you”! A little discouraging! Probably will not go again because of the service!

    Food was delicious. Service was ok, I did order a coke and never received it. Not a problem. Our waitress didn’t tell us about the Mango Margarita that they had on special but thankfully the gentleman who I think was the manager came by our table asking if everything was good and told us about that margarita. It worked out not getting my coke because the margarita was way better!

    Shrimp tacos and carne asada tacos were good. Guacamole appetizer was very good as were chips. The table salsa is not very good - tastes like ketchup. I’d give our server a C - she got my drink wrong and one of the sides for my entree wrong (either not paying attention or can’t hear). She seemed surprised that things were wrong and paid more attention to tables that had more people at them (but probably not a greater tip potential - I’ve waited tables before, just saying). We’ll give this place another try before writing them off as I had a really good lunch here another time.

    Service was poor. Drinks came out incorrect multiple times. Didn’t have certain ingredients for other drinks. Salsa tastes like it comes out of a jar from the grocery store. Meal came out before appetizer did. Meal was mediocre at best. Nothing special. Will not be back.
