The green salsa at Gallo Blanco is one of the best things I've ever eaten. Be sure to try it when you're there!

This place was great. Food was on point drinks were perfect. The best part other than resonable prices was the fact that we got service with a smile. See ya soon.

Great food - fresh, tasty, and not too highly priced. Outside dining option is nice. I've eaten here twice while staying at the Clarendon, and I recommend it - as good as you'll get by driving somewhere, if not better.

I've eaten here several times over the last few years, but I was here with three friends and our five dogs recently and I couldn't have been more pleased! Having such a large group, we called ahead to see if they could accommodate all of us (otherwise we would have run home to drop off the dogs), and they assured... More

Favorite Mexican restaurant in town... make sure it's on your list. Shrimp tacos and margaritas win every time. It's a cen-pho must!

We stopped here for lunch after flying into Phoenix on our way to Sedona. Service was slow, but the food was great, although portions small. I had the Ensalada Cortada and it was excellent!

way to loud for me - Margaritas were too acidic for my taste - food was not memorable - won't go back

Its a bit on the pricey side in my opinion (tacos were about 3 bucks a piece if memory serves), however, you can eat at the bar at a table or the patio in a great dining atmosphere.

I had breakfast - traditional eggs/bacon/and wonderful bread; lunch - chicken enchiladas; and dinner - a huge carne asada burrito while I stayed at The Clarendon Hotel. The outside bar is perfect this time of year and the live music on Wednesday nights is an added treat.

After many visits over several years, my most recent experience at Gallo Blanco will be my last! I have repeatedly tolerated slow service at Gallo Blanco because the food quality is quite good. But during a visit with two out-of-town guests, we were seated for 35 minutes with absolutely no attention or acknowledgement. We were promptly seated at about 5:30... More
