    Been to both Blanco’s. Both are great. Downtown has a different vibe from Scottsdale road. Food, service, creativity all great.

    Our group started with appetizers: mango ceviche and street corn. Both were DELICIOUS! Highly recommend! For dinner my wife and I shared the chimichanga. They separated our plates for us and it was a wonderful choice because there was no way either one of us could’ve eaten the whole thing. The green enchilada sauce was so good. Our friends shared a taco salad and said it was also very tasty. Great service and good atmosphere. We were seated close to the bar and it was a Saturday night before the Mercury game so the noise level was a little higher, but that was to be expected. We really enjoyed this restaurant.

    The food was prepared as ordered. We split a Machaha beef burrito and it was delicious. Definitely enough for both of us to enjoy as a shared meal. I also enjoyed a spicy skinny margarita with my meal. It was a great place to have a meal before our evening out.

    The food was amazing. We ordered the shrimp fajitas, taco salad with steak, and chimichanga enchilada style with red salsa. The queso was also delicious. Our waitress was on her game with making sure we had everything we needed. The drinks are also really good. We order some frozen Paloma’s. After trying it, I might order it on the rocks instead. Overall good and experience was great.

    The food was pretty good, we stopped by because it was close to the footprint center for a concert we were attending. If you make a reservation the wait wasn’t long at all and the service was very good! Highly recommend if you have plans at the footprint center.

    I'm sorry I can't recall our server's name. She was hilarious and took care of us very well. That's not something as common as it used to be. I only got a beer, but my colleagues got margaritas (jalapeno & pineapple, and skinny). Both were great. Between the three of us, we had five different tacos. I had a carne asada and a machaca which were superb. I'll be back the next time I'm in town.

    Now I understand why its so difficult to get reservations here. What a fabulous place! The food was beyond my expectation. It was the day of a Suns playoff game and extremely crowded and loud. But, the structure of the room absorbed the sound well. So while loud it wasn’t deafening and still easy to have a conversation. Service was slow but the staff still very attentive and asking forgiveness. But it was all understandable under the circumstances. Would definitely visit here again.

    Love it. Downtown is so much more lively these days and this location is prime. We sat indoors and brought our 3 year old - he did well and we enjoyed our night. The skinny margarita is great. Loved the cheese crisp and our entrees. Everyone was nice and attentive. I can’t wait to go back!

    We have visited Blanco several times now. The online reservation process works very well and the timing is accurate. The food is great, we love the queso and chips, rice, shrimp, and chimichangas are some of our favorites. The service has always been great and the atmosphere is family friendly. Of note, there isn’t a printed kids menu, but they do have kid sized options. Enjoy!
