    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!

    I was disappointed that staff did not recognize my friends birthday. He had wanted to go to Blanco so this was my birthday gift to him. When I made the reservation they asked if it was a special occasion and I said yes a birthday. So, I’m wondering why they ask.

    Great waitresses, but food was not good. The guacamole arrived is a scaled down portion, HUGE chunks of avocado in it with several full length entire strands of cilantro (obviously not chopped adequately). My chicken bowl was disgusting . . . . each item within the chicken bowl was sloppy in presentation, it almost had the appearance of mush and the flavor was mediocre. I have eaten multiple times at Blanco and never had a meal or guacamole like this.

    Treated rudely by greeter when asked if we could set a table and not at a high top. Told no. I am 5' 1" and 74 my husband is 85. High tops are difficult for us. An empty table remained empty, until about 5 mins before we left. The waitperson also was rude, when I explained to her my husband had just gotten new hearing aides and she did not need to yell. She said sorry, I am not a mind reader! food was adequate. Will not recommend to others or return.

    Friday night in the summer. Busy and noisy. Fajitas were good but nothing special. Margaritas are average and small. Service was good. Prices were nominal for the area of town. Great view.

    The sudden rainstorm made eating outside, our preference, impossible. The staff handled the situation well. Our only issue was the service provided by our primary server, listed on the receipt simply as AM Bartender, was rarely around. After taking our order, he did not return until my drink was finished. He did ask whether I wanted another, but failed to bring it after I said yes. Only when my wife order her second drink - several minutes later - did he remember to bring mine. At the end of the meal, it took quite some time for him to bring the bill, then we ultimately had to give the bill and credit card to a hostess because he never returned to the table. As usual, the food was excellent.

    The food was delicious and the prices were reasonable given inflation levels. Staff were friendly and attentive. All around enjoyable experience, though my grandparents felt it was a bit loud. We will definitely return for a meal in the future and may just request a table outside so it's a little quieter. Would definitely recommend!

    I love driving up in La Encantata and seeing Blanco. It's one of my favorite spots for good food and meeting friends. They have had a menu change but it's still full of variety and favorites. Their chips and salsa are in the top three in Tucson. I could make a meal on those but I don't want to miss out on the delicious, very different dishes Blanco has to offer. I usually go for the enchilada's and this time tried the sweet potato enchiladas that did not disappoint. They were flavorful with just the right amount of heat to remind me I'm eating Mexican food. It's a great place with even greater ambiance. I definitely recommend.

    We frequent this restaurant quite often and today was such a disappointment - from the lemonade that was water with some lemon flavor, to the replacement lemonade that was so sweet it was undrinkable. From the Caesar salad order with Mahi that came without the Mahi, only to have to wait another 10-15 minutes for the Mahi to arrive with the salad that included several 'brown' leaves of lettuce. I continually had to ask for a refill on my ice tea, we were not offered any more chips/salsa the entire time we were there. The wait person was indifferent, never introduced herself and barely spoke to us. The restaurant was mostly empty today so there was no excuse for the poor service and certainly no excuse for the poorly served food.

    I was disappointed in this mexican restaurant. We were excited to order tacos with beans and rice. The tacos were probably the worse tacos in tucson. The race wasn’t even mexican rice, just plain white rice. And the beans were disgusting, pretty much just baked beans straight out of a can. The only thing authentic about this restaurant was the tequila. I will not return and will not recommend this place to friends.
