Blanco Tacos + Tequila - Fashion Valley
The restaurant is located on the second floor of the mall so I was expecting "food court" food. I knew this was NOT mall food the minute I took the first sip of my margarita on the rocks! The freshest most authentic margarita I've had in a restaurant. We ordered the fajitas for our entree which did not disappoint in flavor. I just wish they had served it with a little more meat. We also shared the chicken tortilla soup and the crispy calamari. Both delicious!! I will definitely dine here again on my next visit to San Diego.
Still my favorite chicken fajitas and guacamole, plus the happy hour deals are great. $5 margaritas!
Sterling was a great waiter and took time to explain everything to us . Iit was our first visit.
Awesome service by Lucy. And management is always doing a great job making sure we are well treated
food was good but the restaurant was under staffed and our waitress was too busy to properly serve us.
Wonderful food, service, and ambience. The carne asada and the short rib tacos were fantastic. My husband and I were visiting SD from LA and would definitely come back here. I am 100% recommend Blanco Tacos.
We were a party of three. One meal was outstanding, one was very good, and the third was OK. I think the person who ordered that meal was expecting something else. Two of us were extremely happy.
Great customer service and food was delicious! The ambiance was also great.
The tacos were juicy and full of flavors. Service was great too
Amazing food - quality - portions - service ! I will definitely go back
Great experience. Food was great. Staff was friendly. Will definitely be going back
Great food and attentive service
None of us had been to this restaurant before. We were so happy that we came, especially because of the Restaurant Week offerings. We loved our choices. Each dish was tasty and servings were generous. We all decided we would look forward to coming back again if we could sit outside. The inside noise and music level kept us from being able to hear each other so the staff helped us move to the patio. Service was excellent.
Overall experience was amazing! Would highly recommend to anyone who wants quality food, drinks and great service.
Came for San Diego Restaurant Week. Nice place, good food, great margaritas
Great addition to Fashion Valley Mall. Love the indoor/outdoor feel. We liked our food however, the service for the drinks was exceptionally long which was disappointing. They were not that busy when we were there so we were not sure what the delays were since they were all margaritas. Great place overall.
Blanco tacos never disappoint. The food is authentic Mexican. The drinks are amazing, specially the Smashed mule.
What a great place! We dined here for a lunch meeting. We were able to take our time and were not rushed at all. The food was delicious, we had questions as some were not familiar with all the options and each was answered perfectly with suggestions to suit our preferences.
Our waiter was very accommodating letting us talk when we needed and quietly kept everything we needed topped up. There was outdoor seating which would be lovely if you were enjoying a few drink before a movie. I expect it would be much busier in the evening and weekends.
Great reception, seated us quickly. Server said she was new but she did an outstanding job. Food was excellent and in generous proportions. Beautiful casual place - great drinks too.
I parked behind Bloomingdale’s which always works to get to their great mall location near stairs and escalator.
Convenient location and yummy food but GO FOR HAPPY HOUR!
Trendy fun little hot spot. Family friendly and great options for all including gluten free. Homemade tortillas are awesome. Margaritas and queso even better
Love Blanco Tacos & Tequila. We always recommend it to friends and is our go to for celebrating birthdays & special events! Love the ambiance & watermelon ceviche!
Great outdoor seating area and the happy hour deals are excellent. Combined that with yummy food and you've got Blanco's.
EXCEPTIONAL SERVICE! From the hostess, to the waiter, to the bus boy. Sweetest People! Great Food too! The Guacamole was a little watery, but besides that it was great.
The food was just ok. The drinks are in the pricey side but they were tasty. Had to send the money tacos back because the carne asada was burnt
The food and management you have are fabulous! Thanks for a fun and enjoyable evening with the family!
Good good, I was expecting more authentic Mexican food, overall ok
The hostess greeted us right away & we were seated immediately at a great table. Our server was prompt, knowledgeable & friendly. We had the highly recommended Queso with Ground beef-it was delicious! The Smashed Watermelon Margarita was very good/refreshing. Our entrees (Short Rib Tacos & Burrito) were excellent.
Can’t wait to be in the San Diego area again so we can dine there!
Excellent lunch with my beautiful wife. Food and drinks were great. Our server was very nice and the manager Jessie was awesome. Great customer service, thank you.
Whether you’re looking for great food or tasty drinks, Blanco has you covered! Highly recommend! Located next to the food court at Fashion Valley Mall. Great location for people watching w/ outdoor seating. Everything is well priced. I went on National Tequila Day so service was a bit slow but understandable.
I discovered this place through it's sister restaurant North Italia also in the FV mall. I ordered the avocado tacos and my table ordered the seafood tacos and it was delicious. The server recommended we crumble some table tortilla chips over the tacos to give it a crunch and it was a great recommendation. The food tastes fresh and wholesome. You don't feel as heavy or bad about the food or drinks here as it seems as though they try to use authentic and whole ingredients for both the food and cocktails. Will be back soon!
Service is great, food was good but I’ve definitely had better tacos far too many times in different places to give this place a higher rating. The seating area probably could use a better way of shading since you constantly have to move to avoid the heat from direct sun light.
Good margaritas, Good flavor on the fajitas. Need to give a little more guac. Otherwise, good times.
This place is great. Good menu, great drinks and management and staff treat us well!!!
Great service - it was all our first time. Food was amazing for everyone. They let me choose a dessert as it was my birthday. Overall great and highly recommend. I’ll definitely be back!
Outstanding service..food was over the top delish...tons of fun!
