Food as good as the view, patio seating beautiful

Dining alfresco in February, with good food, was really a treat for us, visiting from Wi. Beautiful view, attentive service and just the right amount of interesting, well prepared food.

This was the first time I ever visit this place. Great Mexican food. Had tacos with flour tortillas and a dish that I can't remember the name, it was in a cast iron pan with some kind of sausage meat, salsa and cheese. O my goodness it was something to die for. It was simply delicious. Definitely try that as... More

My sister was in town and we met here for a late lunch. We had a great experience. The place was packed, yet our server was took care of us with diligence. The food was great, with exception of their mesquite corn, it was somewhat distasteful. I had it remade without the mayo and it still was not as I... More

We had to wait 20 mins to get into Blanco, but it was worth the wait. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The tacos are excellent - it is worth choosing a selection rather than just 3 of the same. I would definitely eat here again if back in town. Get there during Happy Hour - before 6pm - for... More

This place comes highly rated by folks in Tucson ... but I'm not one of them. In my opinion, it's overrated. It takes forever to get a table even way back in the corner near the kitchen. The tables are crowded. It's noisy. And the food is blanc. Nothing special here so I'm not sure why it's so high up... More

I just had lunch at Blanco with a friend in honor of her birthday (she had a birthday coupon for a free dessert!). We both had the short rib burritos, which were excellent. The meat was tender and flavorful with just the right amount of heat, and the accompanying black beans and rice were prepared perfectly. She chose to have... More

I stayed with friends while visiting Tucson, and took them out to Blanco for an early dinner. We took advantage of their Happy Hour. Two of us had margaritas (two apiece) and one had a White Russian. We then ordered several appetizers; nachos, dips, quesadillas and many more. The restaurant has a nice vibe and a beautiful view of the... More

The title says it all. I ordered the margarita with Don Pedro Blanco and Grand Marnier. The tacos had a delicious homemade tortilla.

Lovely outside dining! I always have the seafood ceviche and in fact that is the main reason I go! Although my friends who are more adventuresome have always raved about their meals. The inside dining is a bit on a loud side at times.
