Great Upscale Mexican, Nice Scene

I have been here a few times... this is a great resturant for lunch and dinner. Great for business lunches or dates. It is kind of upscale, but not overly expensive. It has very modern decor etc. The wait staff is excellent. Food is great too. Draft beer selection is limited but plenty of... read more

We visit Blanco everytime we visit Scottsdale (usually twice a year). We typically go there more than once during our stay we love it that much. The food is not your typical mexican cuisine. The drinks are delicious and happy hour is very reasonable. We usually travel with 12-15 people and they are very accomodating with making a space just... More

I loved this place...food was upscale, clean presentation, very fresh ingredients without heavy cheeses or fat laden sauces. We had a grilled corn side dish recommended by our waitress and the dish was off the charts fabulous! The tacos may look small, but they are packed and very filling! Loved the bar! Margarita was the best I had had to... More

Been here many times over the years but less frequently as time goes on(a few months since last visit). The chips, salsas, guacamole, margaritas, service, and ambiance are always excellent. However, the menu never changes and vegetarian choices are very limited (meat stock in the enchilada sauce, corn/rice/refries not vegetarian, etc.). I ordered the cheese quesadilla this time and the... More

We love the tacos at Blanco. I agree the prices are high for what you get but they have such great choices and the ability to order a mix of tacos is nice. And the street corn!!!! It is fantastic! If the prices are a turn off, go during happy hour. The last time we went, we got there right... More

The restaurant looks very nice and inviting. I have been eating here several times and even take friends to eat here; and every time has been good. I do not eat "picante" food and they are a little "picante" (hot) to my taste however the flavor is excellent! Corn tortillas are very tasty. Carnitas Tacos are my favorite; I also... More

Stopped in after church one Sunday for a quick bite and was so happy we did. Since we didn't have much time we ordered from the outside counter. We each ordered something different from the slider options. Delicious and great value.

Very nice, chic, urban feel! The restaurant was jam packed with a 30 and under crowd. It was also extremely noisy. But, all that faded into the background once the food arrived. We had a lovely and very knowledgable waitress - she is originally from Michigan (don't remember her name.) She was super nice and totally on the ball. The... More

I've been to Blanco a few times for lunches with co-workers and client partners. Each time the staff has been wonderful and the food has been very good. Very enjoyable atmosphere and varied seating options provide a cool visual. Love going here and will continue to do so!

We went with our 3 kids at 5:30 for dinner. They have Happy Hour prices for good appetizers and drinks. The chips and dip were delicious. We had the tacos and thought the good was fresh and tasty. The atmosphere was fun and the staff very friendly.
