    I’ve been here multiple times but won’t be back. Not dairy free or vegan friendly at all and overcharged for a drink. Inconsistent and overpriced food.

    Pricing is too high for the product. They either have to step up their game on quality or drop their prices. $60 for lunch for two, non alcoholic drinks is ridiculous. Maybe worth 40. Crunchy Taco Salad was not good, sparse and lacking. They made it off my list.

    It took almost an hour from when we ordered to get our food. The waitress was very kind to us although and they took the appetizers off the bill so that was nice! The food was Luke warm and cold when it finally did come out. I like the food but will avoid this location during the weekend nights from now on.

    First, we arrived about 20 minutes early for our reservation with plenty of tables available, and we asked to be seated to get a drink before our other guests showed up,but the host would not seat us until our reservation time, not cool! Then, when I received my grilled shrimp tacos, the shrimp were cold, not even lukewarm, and I ate about half of one taco but they weren’t appealing or enjoyable whatsoever! The restaurant manager offered to make me some new tacos, but by that time I had lost my appetite and wasn’t interested. He did take my entrée off the bill as well as some other items, which we appreciated, but I’m not inclined to go back to Blanco again. With that said, everyone else in our party seemed to enjoy their meals.

    I enjoyed the chicken Tucson Chimichanga, very flavorful, but the filling was “saucier” than what I expected, no a lot of chicken. My partner had 2 different tacos, both delicious, but the filling to tortilla ratio seemed off, he had extra tortilla and not much filling. He did say the chicken pastor was his favorite. We both enjoyed the skinny spicy margarita, chips, salsa and guac. Our server was very attentive, even though she was crazy busy with a large party. Very loud inside, I suggest patio seating.

    It's been a while since our last visit, but appears the menu has changed. The guacamole is excellent as is the Pineapple-guava Agua fresca.....they make both of these items like nobody else....could have made a meal on just these 2 items! Had the shrimp fajitas, very good as well, a bit on the spicy side.

    Blanco has gone downhill. I was there with several others who had each visited Blanco in the past. We all agreed that the food/presentation had diminished. Our waitress was flat out rude. Won’t be going back any time soon.

    We brought our friends to Blanco's for their first experience. Blanco’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Tucson, however, last night we were quite surprised at the lack of quality of food served. The service was excellent but the enchiladas were so dry and there wasn’t much meat in them either. This was a first so hopefully next time we will enjoy the food quality that we are used to.

    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!
