Nice casual place to eat. Good food

We enjoyed a nice lunch here last week............inside where it was cool. This is a very lively, upbeat place with young, casually dressed servers who are very friendly and deliver great service. I had a Mexican salad with mahi and my husband had the fish tacos and we thought both were really... read more

First time at this restaurant and I was pleased beyond my expectations. All the wait staff were extremely accommodating. The Mexican enchiladas melt in your mouth. Will definitely visit this establishment again.

Fun place - good food - great white sangria. Nice stop for appetizers and drinks but also good for a larger meal as well. Stacy our waitperson was wonderful.

Very upscale fare, nouvelle Mexican cuisine like I'd expect in an Acapulco or Mazatlan resort. Love the mole, fish tacos, enchiladas... in fact everything I've tried there has been excellent. Try the sangria, its good too.

Dinner was really nice - good food, terrific views. Bottle beers, but my frozen Margarita was quite tasty without being "over the top" on alcohol. Their house special enchilada meal was perfect for me, and yes, we had a generous serving of flan for dessert.

Cool atmosphere inside, huge windows, with amazing tacos with bright ingredients. Had green chile tacos with lots of cilantro and carnitas tacos with orange and lime. Sat at bar for quick lunch service. Custom made a cherry Pepsi for daughter. Very reasonably priced and professional service. Highly recommend!

After a long vacation we were passing through Tucson on the way home. We were staying at the Embassy suites close by Blancos and decided to give it a try. It was a Friday night around seven and it was a 20 minute wait. As we are from Dallas that was almost too easy. I wondered if it was a... More

After being disappointed by margaritas in Tucson, we finally came upon Blanco where the margaritas were not made with an overly sweet mix. Staff was great and made them like we asked. Great prices for happy hour on the margaritas and appetizers.

Blanco at fiirst is attractive. But to me the deck is too narow and small, and holds far too few customers. There is not enough shade provided on the deck, also. The menu is a let down. Basically you have your choice of a few tacos, and one enchilada, plus a couple alternatives to Maxiican. The service is always good,,... More

Blanco is a popular and attractive eartery and I usually have a meal here when I visit Tucson because my dad likes their fish tacos...Service is good and the girls working the tables attractive and very funny. The Mexican beer is properly chilled and the seasonal daquiris excellent: especially the peach ones... I wish I could be more enthusiaistic about... More
