    Not typical Mexican food per Tucson standards, but good; excellent guacamole; mixed alcoholic beverages seem to not contain much of the chosen alcohol. Those who wish to converse with each other while dining may find it difficult inside the restaurant where sound bounces against all the hard surfaces, however seating is available outside on the balcony where it’s easier to converse and the views of the city and mountains are beautiful. The service at this restaurant is always excellent.

    The quality of service has really gone down here. The waiter came to the table a total of three times. They messed up our order. What used to be a fantastic dining experience is just mediocre now. It’s happened the last few times we’ve eaten here.

    Our server was training someone new. I'm pleased to see real training happen. As someone who eats out a lot, service can make or break a great experience no matter how good the food is. So, I tip my hat to you. Keep up the good work, and by the way, the food was fantastic as well. Cheers!

    Great tasting food! Waiter explained the “scratch kitchen” food concept. Food tasted great - had the queso Blanco nachos - awesome appetizer. Had the chimichanga (chicken) and chicken fajitas - both very good. No draft beer - only bottles unfortunately.

    They ran out of glasses so we had to suggest they use plastic cups. We finally got water only to find out they ran out of some beers. They are low on servers so lots of empty tables. We will take a break for a while from here.

    The last 2 visits our food took an extremely long tine to come out. Both times the manager had to apologize for our meal being late. we were unable to get glasses of water because our waitress said there were no clean glasses. So we had to wait for water. We love the food and the drinks

    Our food was Luke warm at best. It appeared to have been sitting under a warmer for a good amount of time because the top of the queso was semi warm and the rest was neutral. It took a about 15 mins to get our queso and chips A chicken quesadilla was $15! It was charged as a cheese crisp with add chicken. There were many flies inside around our table.

    We did enjoy our meal at Blanco with a couple of little issues. I guess they must have changed the menu because the basic chicken soft shell tacos I always ordered are no longer on the menu. So I was disappointed about that. I ordered ground beef tacos which were good except that the taco shells had so much salt on them! It totally made for a taste that was not the best. Our server was very good...pleasant and attentive.

    Everything was exceptional and Maley was a superb sever with attention to detail. Cadillac Margie is where it's at and the pineapple jalapeno marg too if you like that sort of drink. The dessert, a Mexican tiramisu was worth being stuffed. I want to take 3 home.

    We went to Blanco’s for lunch to celebrate our son’s birthday. We were seated on the patio and it was perfect for us. We had a party of eight that included four young children and our waitress was beyond nice to them. The food, service, and setting were great. We would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone who asks.

    Our experience at Blanco Tacos was excellent as usual. Margaritas are great, chips and salsa are great, and the food is always good. Always get the chicken burrito which never disappoints, and always take some home. The wife had the short rib version and said that was great also. Service was good and lots of space available with inside and outside seating. One of our favorite eateries in Tucson!

    We love this place! Sat outside, as we usually do but the cooling misters they had going were making us and our table pretty wet. Our server was so apologetic and kept bringing us towels and checking on us. They then just turned them off for us. Always great food, made even better with great service!
