Chicken chimichanga was amazing. Carne asada burrito tasted burned, mini tacos were dry. Chips and salsa was awesome. We sat outside and the noise was so loud we couldn't carry on a conversation. Waitress was a bit scattered and forgot things a couple of times. Overall I enjoyed it and will go back.

I had luncheon the patio with a friend last month at Blanco and enjoyed it very much, which is why I came back for Happy Hour with my husband and another couple. This time the food was mediocre and the noise was incredibly loud even though we were out on the patio! The loud music only added to the din; I don't know how anyone could dine inside such a place.

I have been to this location before. I made a reservation about 1 week prior as it was for my anniversary. I’m not sure the reservation was useful as We were made to wait while others walked in. Food and service were great as usual. Busy place, especially on Friday.

We had a fun time at Blancos. We’re regulars here and brought our friends from out of town for a fun evening. The food and margaritas were great as expected but the service was horrible. This Is parents weekend so I understand servers are overwhelmed and restaurants are short staffed to begin with. We’ll check back with you again.

This was our first visit to Blanco and we really enjoyed it. Our server was very helpful and attentive. We really enjoyed our meal--we all got fajitas and they were very good. Our only complaint was the size of the tortillas--they were so small that you could not fit more than one piece of meat in them. The corn ones also broke apart making them hard to eat.

Also, when we received our queso we did not receive chips with them (we ate the first small bowl while waiting) and we had to wait over 5 min for more chips. It all worked out but it would have been nice to get chips at the same time as the queso.

All in all a good experience and we'd come back.

Happy hour with my girlfriends evolved into many hours of hanging out on the patio with beautiful weather and excellent food and drinks. Our server was very attentive and when tacos came out too spicy a manager helped have it remade without the sauce, which was to my friend’s liking and appreciation. We had appetizers, a wide range of drinks, food and dessert. What a great time!

If it was not for the very slow service I would have given them 5 stars since the carne asada fajita was exceptional! They were not even very busy!

Always like eating at Blanco Tacos and have never been disappointed. Took advantage of the Sonoran week special for $35 for two and invited another couple along. All of our meals were superb. We ate inside cause it was cooler and the interior was very clean and there were a lot of people at tables and the bar, and everything was spaced out. Margaritas are great, and again the chicken burrito never fails to impress. It's big enough that you have to take about half of it home for dinner. Excellent restaurant and one of our favorites in Tucson!

Visiting back in tucson for restaurant week. Had dinner on patio. Drinks took a while bc of short staff we assume. Quest came out cold so they made a new one. Enchiladas were very good and value for rest week was good. Took desert to go. Server was good.

6 of us went for the Sonoran Restaurant Week special meal.
All 3 courses were delicious. It was only $35.00 for TWO people, a real bargain for the quality of the meals.
My only complaint was the price of one glass of wine which was $15.00. I had 2 glasses which cost $30.00, almost the cost of the entire meal for TWO people!!!
They should have offered a wine special to go along with the specially priced meal.

Love this place …very disappointed this time around. Was my daughter’s birthday and had let them know that up front. We were seated in a very uncomfortable table despite other tables open, service was inattentive and overall an unpleasant experience for a special occasion. We will give it another try but hoping this isn’t a trend ☹️

Great place. The shrimp and crab salad is consistently awesome and the mahi tacos are very good. Sitting outside was nice as there was a bit of a breeze on the side patio. I think it is kind of loud inside so we always request outside.
