My husband and I enjoyed a dinner here sitting out on the patio with the mountain view.. The service couldn't have been any better and the food so fresh and delicious. I had fish tacos which were light and flaky... My husband had quesadillas... All was a wonderful experience... Can't wait to go back. Even the chips and salsa are... More

Wandered in after a day of travel since it was close to the hotel. Could not have made a better choice. Food was excellent and the service was great. My wife had the mushroom taco dinner and I had the fish taco dinner. Delicious. We both ate more than we intended. We were sorry our son didn't join us and... More

We live near Blanco so we end up going there once in a while. The views are definitely great. The food is rather bland. So many great Mexican food restaurants in Tucson that it amazes me people continue to go to Blanco. It is trendy and in a nice area so I think people go there for the atmosphere and... More

We shared a sangria flight, a ceviche flight, some chips and queso, and split a couple of 'ritas. Service was very good and friendly. Lovely patio with misters, and the restaurant's located in a fantastic shopping center.

Blanco was a good choice to have chips, salsa, freshly made guacamole and a top shelf margarita. They have a huge selection of tequilas to either have straight or mixed in the margarita. The carne asada tacos were very delicious. The patio is nice with the mist cooling the breeze and overlooking the mountains and Tucson skyline.

so this place has some delicious tacos. the carnitas and crispy shrimp are particular standouts. the margaritas are strong and cold. the only downside is it is not cheap. you are looking at $13 for 3 tacos. not something for everyday, but if you want to impress a date or something like that, its worth it.

My husband and I had dinner at Blanco with our 2 teenaged sons, and sat on the terrace. The view was lovely, and the music as not too loud from where we were sitting. The service was very attentive. The chips and salsa they served was very tasty. I had the fajitas, which were very good, as was the black... More

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Tucson. The food is is sort of nouvelle Mexican. Creative spin on traditional dishes. The service is great and the ambience is fun. There is a patio, which is comfortable just about year round, and it has a fabulous view of downtown. It is a great place to enjoy a meal with... More

We went here for dinner on a Sunday the weekend of the U of A graduation. I will give them the benefit of the doubt and say that some of the poor service was due to extra large crowds. Service was awful - you'd ask for water and never get it. Worst service we have had in a long time.... More

My husband & I have been to Blanco a few times & have always enjoyed excellent service, margaritas, & tacos. (Tip, you can mix & match three different tacos). Last week I was looking for an easy way to entertain several out-of-town clients & I remembered Blanco has a Happy Hour from 4-6. Thanks to the 1/2 price margaritas (Mexican... More
