Great food and wonderful service. We had a large party of 13 and they were very attentive. Only drawback was the heat outside. The misters could not be turned on to help with the heat while the shade was down. Need to fix so both can function at the same time.

Staff was very gracious. One of the dishes ordered came out cold. When staff was informed they offered to have it re-done. We did not decide to do so because all the food would not have been eaten. The meat on both dishes with seasoned well. The rice on both dishes was a bit soggy. The beans on both dishes were seasoned well too. Just wish everything had been hot right out of the pot.

We've been to Blanco many many times but mostly because of the vibe. We went there this past Saturday for happy hour., 4 adults and 2 kids. Not many drinks and no meals per se, but our bill was $112. Blanco nickels and dimes the customers like no where else in Tucson. Food isn't great. Drinks ARE! But we won't be back. We often goes to the other Fox restaurants but we are done with Blanco.

We had a fun date with two other couples. They have a great happy hour and something for all the needs with allergies. It was a fun atmosphere and we stayed for almost 3 hours chatting and enjoying delicious appetizers, entree and dessert. Our server Sophie was attentive and we always had plenty of ice water and all we needed.

The food was very small for such a high price, it was definitely not a good bang for your buck. I don't mind paying for food at a higher price, but it'd better be worth it. The service also was very forgetful at various times and never repeated our order back to us.

The food was pretty good. Margaritas and sangria fairly average. The server tried hard but our drinks didn't come out until after we'd finished our appetisers. The outdoor dining area was well laid out with overhead cooling water mist around the edge of the deck. The inside restaurant was incredibly noisy, so we were glad to be outside.

We met special friends here. It was a holiday weekend but we were seated right away. The service was fantastic right from the start. We had reservations for 4 but 2 extra showed up. They accommodated us with no problems. The happy hour was fabulous. The dips were delicious and I want to go back for more!!! The views were beautiful and it was such a relaxing and fun time with great food and service! We will definitely go back.
Thank you for a wonderful day with friends!

Overall I was satisfied. Service was a little slow but it was Mother’s Day and busy. Food was better than I expected, pleasant surprise. We were outside and it was a bit windy which the staff noticed and put the shades down which helped. I’m quite picky with Mexican food as are my parents whom I took with me. We are definitely going back soon!

Great food but the noise level was excessive. Between the volume on the music and other noises we couldn't hear each other across the table. Better choice for lunch if you want to hold a conversation..or prepare to talk VERY LOUDLY.

The food was good, there are better options out there for street tacos for the price- call it a glorified chilies. My biggest gripe here was the service. Absolutely by far careless. We placed our order, tacos, and fajitas, and an appetizer. After an hour and fifteen minutes, our food came out incorrect, and without our appetizer. The server responded oh I forgot to put that in. I sent my tacos back as they were wrong, and the response was oh yes, I put that in incorrectly also. The manager brought my tacos back out, did not make eye contact with me and asked my husband if there was anything else he needed. None of the errors were addressed at all. They offered a free dessert, but at that point- 2.5 hours later I wanted to get out and could care less about the dessert. The management team should have apologized or acknowledged the errors. And that wasn’t done. The foods fine. But careless errors are long lasting representations of the food that’s being made, and the staff they represent.
