Clean restaurant with great service and food. Have had burrito, enchiladas and tacos. All were good. Chips and salsa good. Margaritas are also good.

Our luncheon favorite Mexican salad with steak was even better than ever! Disappointed that the white sangria was no longer offered, but the waitress recommended the Skinny Margarita which was a superb substitute! Plenty of chips and dip. Specific requests for a take-out order were met to a tee!

Outdoor dining had plenty of space between the tables and tables seemed clean. The area could use fresh paint on the railings. Service was very good. Love the complimentary chips and salsa.

You can't go wrong here. Everything we ordered was delicious - but we especially loved the guacamole. Good social distancing inside and more air available by dining on the covered porch. Not cheap, but you get good value at Blanco.

Fish tacos had very tiny fish inside. Also, they needed a sauce (maybe white sauce) because with out any it was too bland.

Limited menu during COVID. No white peach hibiscus margarita or crunchy shrimp taco :(. Limited beer selection, though +1 for having Dragoon on tap!

The patio at Blanco is very large, they did a great job at spacing out the tables+chairs in a way that made you feel safe dining at a restaurant. They food is very good, perhaps not traditional Mexican food, but their interpretation of traditional Mexican dishes are tasty! There are plenty of vegetarian options as well!

They've done a great job managing the current situation. Waitress was great and so was the food.
It was nice to be able to go out and feel 'normal' for just a bit.
Nice Job!

Shrimp and Mahi tacos were simply outstanding, and the chips and salsa got us off to a great start. Charro beans and rice made for lovely sides. Friendly service. We didn't try any of the cocktails, so that will have to come up on a different review. On the negative side, refried beans were far too salty; and it's a very noisy place - lots of glass (makes for great views), so the acoustics are pretty poor. But if you skip the refried beans, and aren't looking for a romantic lunch or dinner, you'll likely love the food at Blanco.

Very good food, large portions. Wish they had brought small plates for chips and salsa so everyone wouldn’t had to eat out of the same bowl.

Busy spot for a great lunch where you can mix and match tacos with a good drink selection. Reasonable prices and friendly service with a nice outdoor patio. A must visit in the encantada complex if you want some excellent Mexican cuisine.

Since COVID, they had to reduce the usual menu but that shouldn't deter you from finding something fantastic on the menu. Service was attentive and fast.

The food and service was excellent however I made reservations on open table and expected to be seated indoors. It was an extremely hot evening and we were shown to an outdoor table. When I inquired if we could be seated indoors we were told it would be an hour and a half wait. We really should have been given this information while making the reservation.

It's good but might not be for us. I'm celiac and my wife is allergic to cow dairy. Normally, Mexican is a pretty safe bet for us (and they even have Manchego, which is sheep, and my wife can normally eat that). It's that their sauces all have dairy in them. So she ordered the Chicken Encheladas and they came out completely dry. The server, who was good about putting down the allergy, didn't know that the red sauce had cream in it. They were nice and comped it, but that leaves very little, except maybe the tacos or possibly the salads that she can eat. I ordered the Fajitas and even those had what looked to be cream over them. Highly unusual for Mexican cuisine to use that much dairy. I know Americans love their dairy but true Mexican flavor uses spices and citrus, not milk and cream on everything.

Hot evening. Sprinkle Misters not reaching us, even though our table underneath them. Waitress kept forgetting to deliver our requests. Carne Asada Tacos mediocre. Carmelized Sweet Potato Enchiladas overcooked and burnt. However Chips and Salsa Are great.

Athough I really like Blanco, I thought the music was a little too loud. The guac, which I usually regard as the best, wasn't as I am used too. May be not a good batch of addvocados? The sevice was great
