Service was great, food was excellent, although you need to know what to expect food wise. It is primarily tacos and similar food.

Seated right at our reservation time. Quick service. Nice staff. Food was just what we expected and very good. As usual, incredibly loud. Seated next to 3 fairly large groups.

Causal and outdoor patio seating with tasty Shrimp and Mahi Mahi fajitas! Perfectly grilled, perfectly caramelized and seasoned onions, peppers “fixings”...tacos and other delicious fare / another Fox family of Restaurants winner. Attentive and upbeat service, Mango jalapeño Margarita...:)

Everyone ordered tacos on my recommendation. Two of us who ate the fish tacos didn’t feel well later. Maybe it was something else but it was a concern. Service was very good, nice views, breeze on the balcony. Chips and salsa fresh.

Awesome restaurant I found on Open Table. Since we were visiting in Tucson, I wanted a Mexican experience. Our server recommended their award winning pork with homemade BBQ sauce. We loved it in an enchilada and tacos. Beer selection was extensive. Great outdoor space with open concept dining. Located in large outdoor shopping mall, so plenty of parking. Enjoy

Waited nearly 10 mins for a salad after other parties had their hot meals. It’s a chain Mexican restaurant. Not super impressed.

A very large restaurant, particularly busy which added to the noise level and that they ran out of fish for their signature fish tacos! We waited to be seated and waited a long time before our order arrived.

As always, the guacamole was excellent. The Mahi Taco I ordered was way over cooked or it was chicken. Everything else we had was good.

I had an entree of excellent and substantial bbq pork quesadilla. With a small side order of guacamole and chips and salsa, I was stuffed.

Looking for something a little different than your average tacos and this place has it. The cocktails were a bit strange, heavy on the grapefruit and somewhat different. I did not particularly like my margarita and switched to straight tequila of which they have a great selection. We ordered the tacos, and I particularly like the shortrib taco but the fish and crispy shrimp were great also. Recommended

I love the vibe at Blanco, it's laid back and comfortable. Once the heaters were turned on, the patio temperature was perfect. The food of course was timely and tasty.

My girlfriend and I went to Blanco..... back in March 2017 and really liked the food. We decided to go back on our 2018 visit to Tucson. We left wondering if this was the same restaurant. The salsa, which was tasty on our first visit, was like tomato sauce and the chips were heavy and salty. The fajitas were too sweet and the meat was excessively tough and chewy. Also, the fajita meat and veggies were cut into too large of chunks for the small tortillas, which exacerbated the toughness of the meat. The only bright spot of the meal was the salad: the greens were fresh and the dressing was tasty. With that said, however, we were expecting more in terms of the overall food quality and service. We will, no doubt, be scratching Blanco.... off our list of Mexican restaurants in Tucson.

Made reservations to meet my mom, son and boyfriend at 5:30. Arrived at 5:20 and told "you don't have reservations." (Which i made thru Open Table.) Seemed odd, but I was just glad that a table was available. Was seated inside. My son texted me "Where are you?" They were seated outside, under my reservation, unbeknownst to me! I had already ordered and was waiting for them inside... They have some glitch with the hostess station, it appears.

Overall, it was a bit noisy and the outdoor space heater was BLASTING heat, way too much. Atmosphere was frenetic.

We were very disappointed in that we had a reservation but waited for a half hour before we were seated. We were then given a table by the door which was cold and drafty.The table was against a pillar so my husband was crammed against the pillar. All these factors made for a negative experience.

We went there on a date and considering I had reserved seating were able to get a seat immediately which was wonderful. If it wasn't such a chilly day we would have sat outside because it was so nice and cozy looking out there. Inside was clean and inviting. The waiter was very helpful and nice/attentive. The food was amazing, and happy hour was such a great deal! Definitely left satisfied. Will return again!

Received a salad with cheese on it, even though the menu did not list cheese an ingredient. Pointed this out the server, so she had it re-made without cheese (as advertised on the menu). When the bill came, I had been charged for TWO salads. When I pointed this out to the server, she took the check back and corrected it. She wasn't outwardly rude, but she did not offer so much as a "Sorry about that" - either for the addition of the unadvertised ingredients to my original salad, or for the billing error on the check. We also never received drink refills without having to get her attention and request it. The food and atmosphere are consistently good (albeit loud), and Blanco used to be one of our favorites, but on our last 2 visits (one a weeknight, and one a weekend night) the service had noticeably slowed and deteriorated. There are too many great dining options in Tucson for me to keep returning to a place with mediocre, slow service. We'll choose another restaurant next time.
