We had a wonderful time! I had a gift to give to my friend meeting me and the waiter was so happy to accommodate my request. We had great drinks, yummy food and awesome service. Food came out SO quick too. I can’t wait to come back!

This was my first time here and it was a great chill atmosphere,our waitress was super nice and the food and drinks were everything!! We tried the street corn, fish tacos and steak tacos. I generally don't eat beans but theirs were real beans with flavor 😋

Atmosphere was pleasant. I’ve ate plenty of Mexican food. The entrees were good. In my opinion the tortilla soup needed more volume for me. I prefer my chips not as hard and my salsa not as thick and volcanic. Otherwise, the service was great. I would go again.

This is my go to spot in San Diego ! It never disappoints. The amazing food and drinks. The customer service is superb. I’ve never had a bad experience here. I recall one time our food took longer than expected and the manager came out to apologize and was very sincere. I can go and on about Blanco. Many establishments can take note from this location. We love BLANCO !

Our server was having an off night I hope. Took us 40 minutes to get drinks, she forgot our order three times and was constantly apologizing yet never improved.

This was actually my second time dining at Blanco Tacos + Tequila. The first time was during their grand opening when I was still living nearby Fashion Valley. I ordered their grilled chicken tacos the first time. What a treat! The second time, I wanted to try their Grilled Fish tacos. I can't decide which one is better.

Food & service has always been great here the last few times we ate here. Tonight,however, the restaurant did not account for the reservations they took. We had a 7:30 reservation for standard indoor seating & they could not seat us. We have been waiting for 30 minutes for our table & we found out they sat someone else who just came in. Then they realized they made a mistake & lied to us saying they checked in 40 minutes earlier. Really??? You held their table for 40 minutes? You guys gave them an invisible pager that no one else got? They literally just came in talked to the hosts & got sat while we were waiting outside in the cold. it’s kind of ridiculous. When you make a mistake just own it, take accountability & make it right. Don’t make up stupid lies which just makes things more infuriating. They should have at least offered to seat us right away anywhere instead of making up excuses. The 2 hosts gave differing explanations & the “manager” made up the stupidest lie. Why even bother making reservations at all? I’m really disappointed by this place tonight & we really used to like coming here. It’s too bad. Probably never coming back because this type of treatment is totally not acceptable. Open table should not allow restaurants who cannot abide by their reservation system to be part of the Open Table family. This is the first time this has happened with us on open table in the decade we’ve been using the service. We ended up going to Osteria Panevino where we are always treated like valued customers.

Wife went once to store in Arizona.

We've been going for drinks and sometimes for very nice tacos and awesome "Warm Queso".

Great service, J at the bar and Jeff everywhere.

Nice time.

Drinks are amazing! They're food is great and delicious. I just wish that they have more variety from
the menu. We have the mexican Pizza which was so yummy and smashed watermelon margarita which was great too. We will definitely go again. Hopefully they have more desserts to offer than just flan.
