Blanco Tacos + Tequila - Houston
Great Mexican food. Service was excellent from the moment we walked in. No complaints. We will be returning.
Ordered the fajitas and unfortunately they left the skin on the chicken. It was very unappetizing. The chips and salsa were very good. Nice ambiance, will try again!
Waitress did excellent job!
Great food and service! Queso, margaritas and shrimp tacos were fabulous.
Blanco is one of my new favorite Mexican food restaurant!! Their nachos are amazing!
First meeting between two clients— both gave the reservation name but were seated at separate tables. Both waited half an hour for the other then left.
The food was delicious and the drinks mouth watering. We had the Hamachi and watermelon ceviche with pistachios and pomegranates. It was so refreshing and delicious. Also had the queso with beef, and a cheese crísp with pulled brisket. The watermelon and blackberry margaritas were so good too. The ambiance is great. Perfectly lit abd the patio abd bar are great. Highly recommend it for a girls night out or date night. It’s fun and it feels like you’re on vacation somewhere!
Great food & atmosphere however service needs to improve, would go back for drinks and food !
Food was great and service was too. Love the vibe and atmosphere. I feel that the prices are a little high but I guess it’s to be expected in the galleria area.
Wanted to try something new for date night... food and service was great
Everything was great except for very slow drink service
Ambiance was good, experience was interesting.
Galleria hot-spot to sip and see. The Patio was lively and inviting Friday night at 7 PM. [Inside was packed and too loud.] It was our first time to Blanco and I was glad we had made a reservation. Our server Dominique was excellent, enthusiastic and apologetic that the bar was behind on the drinks. The margaritas were worth the wait, made to order and in generous portions. We snacked on incredibly light and crunchy tortilla chips, delicious red salsa and a small order of yummy, rich guacamole (with cotija cheese) while we waited. I enjoyed my entree - braised chicken enchiladas, topped with unctuous warm queso and roasty-red pepper sauce, served with fabulous thick black beans. My husband was not so impressed with his Wagyu carne asada tacos. There was not much meat on the taco. It was not exceptionally tender or tasty. He would have preferred regular Mexican rice to the grainy quinoa-rice.
We will go back because of the drinks and chips, and there are more menu items I would like to try. The patio should be nice in good weather. But BEWARE, it had rained earlier in the week, and the patio seat cushions had clearly absorbed water. After dinner, both of our behinds were SOAKED. They need to do a better job of bringing in the cushions when it rains!
The food is good, relatively healthy..The noise level is way way way too loud...
First time and the food is soooo good, especially the civiche!! Drinks are amazing, service is amazing and I love how it looks inside! Def coming back !
Made a reservation for 5:15 and was not seated until 5:45. Do not trust their reservations.
Very good and healthy considering it's Mexican food...
The food not only looks good, but tastes good! Everything is super fresh and flavorful. I highly suggest the ceviche and the pastor tacos!
We showed up early for our reservation, and they were able to accommodate us with a table almost right away! Our waiter was very enthusiastic, and super knowledgeable about the menu. Quickly pointing out his favourites, which we went with, and were not disappointed! He let us know that the bar was busy, so we expected our drinks to come slower, which was kind of him. Also made every effort to give us ideas on what to do in Houston, even though he had just moved here also. Definitely would come again, next time we visit Houston!
I was expecting so much more! I guess it's hard for outsiders to come into Houston and make great taco - especially at a premium price. I really wanted to like it...my Carne Asada tacos were tougher than nails and the salsa was very bland....if you are coming to Texas, LA style tacos just won't satisfy a well seasoned Texas palate. We want spice, we want texture....unfortunately is was all missing.
So good I ate there for dinner and lunch the next day. Steak was tender and well seasoned. Best salsa I have ever had.
Awesome restaurant ... great food and great service!
This establishment has a creative and satisfying menu both food and drinks.
Great food and excellent service. Go visit Bo the bartender. He’ll take care of you.
Our table wasn’t ready and waited for about 20 minutes but the manager offered us a free cocktail drinks with appetizers. We were party of 7 but did not hesitate to offer everyone.
Great Service. We will surely cone back and bring our friends and families.
Super fun atmosphere & amazingggggg margaritas. Definitely a fun & poppin’ place for a date night, but not the spot if you want a quite private dinner
Our server was wonderful and conscientious. However, we felt bad for her as she was continuously apologetic. Two or our 3 ordered drinks were never made! We waited probably 30 minutes, finished our meals, and our server was still not granted them by the bartender, despite her return visits to him for request!!! We observed the bartender chatting with a customer, with no urgency. Certainly disappointing. Not sure we will return for drinks!
The food was great and our server squeezed in our drink orders the last 3 minutes of Happy Hour! A+ service!
We were seated promptly and on time with our reservation. Our food and drinks were both very good. I especially enjoyed the Wagyu carne Asada fajitas...melts in your mouth!
The temperature was very warm, hopefully that can get fixed. Especially since i was there in January, I can’t imagine when it gets hot here in Houston. If you’re looking to have a good conversation, this isn’t the place for you. The noise level is quite high.
All in all, i was in good company and enjoyed my experience.
The place was very loud. Food was great
What's in a name? For this restaurant, everything. Yes, Taco's and Tequila. They were both outstanding and along with great service was absolutely a great value. My only issue, and it's because I am "old", was the noise level which made having a conversation with my family difficult. But would absolutely recommend this place!
Not impressed. Service was terrible and food was not good. I ordered the half chicken fajitas, the skin was burned and there was no flavor at all. My husband ordered the pawn shrimp fajitas that were so spicy he could barely eat them. We also had the Hamachi and watermelon ceviche that was also very spicy and just really had to much going on. The only thing we enjoyed was the queso and margaritas. Also the restaurant is very loud.
Visited from CA with family. Great creative and high end Mexican food.
Average experience nothing impressive
Awesome service by PJ, Great Food!!
Great food and ambiance!!
While a good experience; definitely fit the “blanco” bill. This is definitely white people Mexican food. Not traditional . Also Jose Cuervo tequila in a $9 drink? No.
The fish tacos were not edible. The food was warm at best. Nothing exceptional. The fajitas came with tortilla triangles, weird? The manager came by the table after the waiter became aware of my friend not eating her fish tacos. But a little too late as we were done and ready to go. Will not be back.
Absolutely loved this place!! Everything we ordered was outstanding... great margaritas and a totally original twist on all of their dishes. Service was unreal... Will definitely be going back....
