Blanco Tacos + Tequila - Houston
I’ve been here before and the service was a bit better last time, however the drinks and food was still delicious. Also, be prepared for a high noise level on weekends. And make reservations.
The Short Rib nachos are a MUST! I tried a number of their margaritas and narrowed down my two favorites: the Skinny & the Blackberry Clementine. Overall great experience and I look forward to stopping back in next time I'm in the Galleria area.
The atmosphere is great! Bar area looks fun and so does the patio seating. The margaritas are very good.
Though I was not too impressed with the food. The salsa to me was sweet and reminded me of Pace Salsa. Ask for a spicer salsa. The chips are good.
Service was not as good. It seemed that our server was a bit distracted and not at all attentive. When they turn tables around they need to sweep the food that has fallen.
The food was good at this import from Tucson but the noise level was extremely loud. It really made us want to hurry up and leave. Also, the menu has changed and we missed some of our favorites such as their “white” rice which was delicious.
Chips & Salsa were the best in town. Service friendly and attentive. Decor fresh and clean reminded me of upscale spa I ordered the enchiladas. Once you get past the first bite not tasting like you expect Tex mex to taste... it was outstanding. It was my Bday so they offered desert and we select the banana split. Fresh strawberry jam, caramelized banana, chocolate with cinnamon covered vanilla ice cream. So good.
Excellent service- food and drinks were delicious. Monday has as margarita special. Taco Tuesday. I’d return. Pork carnitas taco was excellent.
Montreal provided superior service! Genuinely friendly, courteous, helpful, and attentive.
The food was excellent
The only complaint was the noise level— literally had to scream to y’all to our friends on the other side of the table
We sit outside, noise was moderate. Ambiance is very good, modern interior and outside design. Food was great as always! This is my 5th time there since they have opened. One of the best tacos in Houston! Skinny margharita highly recommended.
We sat outside and it was nice. The food was pretty good and the service was good.
I enjoyed eating here. I thought the food was very tasty. I would recommend the street corn and the shrimp dish. My husband got the chicken fajitas and they were a little bland. The table next to me got a cheese crisp. It looked yummy. The noise was a little loud. I was annoyed that I had to pay $11 to valet park the car. Next time I would just find another place to park. I would go back.
Fish taco was served as burnt. It was terrible taste. Noice level was so high but only ambience was good.
Love the vibe and the food was delicious but the noise level was just too much. That’s my only complaint, I’ll still be back again!
Service Good. Margaritas watery (even on the rocks). Food quality below average-cafeteria quality or lower. Price mid level but overall experience not worth the price. VERY NOISY, Hard to carry on a conversation. No "ambience" whatsoever
I did have a great time. Food is overall good and drinks are very mexican
I really enjoyed a amazing birthday here! The service was friendly and quick. Every table is a great experience.
Excellent chickens tortilla soup
The tacos were great! Tons of flavor and great spice. The margarita was good but very weak couldn’t taste much tequila. Made a reservation and still had to wait around 5 minutes to get a table. Service was subpar. Waiter did the bare minimum but had the entire patio by himself so he was pretty busy.
Excellent place to have dinner.
I made reservations for my birthday for 7:45, didn’t get seating until closer to 8:30. The waiter didn’t come by for the longest time, and when he did, some of us didn’t get silverware or straws even after asking twice. The noise level was horrible, I couldn’t hear anybody. My group ordered cocktails but we didn’t get them for twenty minutes or so. By the time we got drinks, our food arrived. Overall everything was horrible. I would not recommend this place.
Great food and drinks! A little loud for a first date but nice place. Will definitely go back.
Creative drinks and cuisine. Excellent food. Fun, lively atmosphere. The watermelon ceviche was some of the best I’ve ever had. Loved their rose Gin and Tonic. We ordered 2 different bowls and they were all delicious! I especially loved the pulled pork.
Absolutely amazing from start to finish. This might be the best Mexican food Ive ever had.
We loved our date night there! Not too fancy - just right!
We are one of the most laid back people with respect to restaurant service and have never bothered to provide feedback even in some pretty extreme cases. However took my wife for a last minute wedding anniversary dinner and the service at this place was beyond terrible. Rude hostess who basically challenged me on the pronunciation of my own name started off the evening, followed by a server who literally butchered the rest of our evening. Our drink order which consisted of just plain tequila took 30 minutes to arrive. And only came after further reminders that we had ordered them. I am pretty sure my drink was not what I ordered but didn’t want to waste more energy on it. Was never asked if we wanted another round. After that we were ignored the rest of the evening unless we waived our server down. I like to be left alone but this was just us being ignored. We ordered 2 items from the appetizer menu waited for another 30-35 minutes asked the server if we could go ahead and placed our entree orders which they took. 10 minutes later entrees arrived and the server looked us like we were crazy when we asked why the appetizers never came. My wife insisted they take the entrees back and the apps be brought out first, but I am pretty sure our entrees just stayed in an oven. Not surprisingly we were charged for all of it which I can accept. However, not once did anyone remotely come close to apologizing to me which was the final straw. Mistakes happen but have the decency to acknowledge them.
Great food and the cocktails were the best part!
Great tacos!!! Great queso, drinks everything was great! Will be back soon
Food was delicious but the service was not good at all. Slow/spotty service, drinks took way too long, entrees came out at different times, restaurant was hot, hostess and servers weren’t necessarily warm and welcoming. One of these faults could have been looked past, but all of them together didn’t really make me want to come back.
Amazing!! They noticed that my whole family was tightly packed in a booth and moved us to a bigger table! After I made the reservation for three less. It was great service
Need more shade on the patio. The sun was to strong.
I will not return. The food is just ok. You can't have 2 different kind of tacos-little flexibility. Overrated. It was packed.
So fun! Delicious food, amazing margaritas and fun atmosphere.
Loved the quest too🙂
Great experience. Music a bit too loud. Difficult to hear conversations.
Mother’s Day brunch with friends was awesome! Our waiter Montrell was the best. Drinks and food were awesome!
Service was way to long! Plus we had reservations!
We had a great time here for Mother's Day. We were a little short on time because I needed to get to work that afternoon, and they got us in and out efficiently. Kids menu too, and our 3 kids all enjoyed it as well. Great food and atmosphere at reasonable prices.
Let me start by saying the food was outstanding. Great, thick salsa, homemade chips. I ordered the short rib tacos and they were delicious. The drinks were expensive, but understandable since they were handcrafted and top-shelf liquor was used. Our service was a little slow as well. We had to flag down a server who wasn't ours to bring us more chips since we hadn't seen ours in a while. The executive chef actually brought our plates to us, which was a really nice touch. So great food, great ambiance--the service could use just a little tweak. Otherwise this is a fantastic restaurant. I will definitely be back.
Very cute trendy place. Food was just ok and drinks were weak
Great birthday experience!!
Fun energetic place to get some great food and drinks!
