Good margaritas

dropped in just after arriving at the airport for a light supper. Had the fish tacos-they were OK but not as good as some others I have had. Would have preferred mote of a fruity mixture.

Had to kill some time while my Apple phone was being repaired so decided to walk to this restaurant. On several occasions previously I had noticed it and that it always seemed to be busy. When I told the service rep at Apple we were going there he said "their tacos are the best." We were not sorry. We had... More

I dined here on a busy Friday night. They told me it would be a 40 min wait. Thankfully we found 2 seats at the bar after waiting about 30 min. When they finally paged me for a table it would have been 90 min. We started with the guacamole that was so good we ordered a second bowl! I... More

Offering dining on a heated patio, in addition to indoors, Blanco is a good bet for an enjoyable expeience and meal. We were here for lunch and were impressed with the fast, friendly service, upscale ambiance, creative, tasty dishes and reasonable prices. The thin-pizza-style dish with portabella mushrooms and roasted vegetables was excellent as was my wife's chopped chicken salad.... More

My wife and I stopped in for lunch and were thoroughly impressed by the staff and management. We have eaten here numerous times in the past and each time, the service and food have been excellent. The Carne Asada Taco's and Lime Corn are the best. The service is superior. The restraint layout is unique. You have your choice of... More

Tried Blanco for lunch. Contemporary Mexican food. Great atmosphere, but the enchilada was just okay. Lots of cheese, but not much flavor. They promote tacos....maybe they are better.

We like this restaurant. We go frequently, typically for lunch. The tacos and salads are tasty and healthy. Service is always prompt. We usually sit outside, it is quieter than inside. You can bring your dog if you are going to sit outside,

This restaurant was in the foothills, which is a very nice part of Tucson. It was a really beautiful day out so we opted to sit outside and eat. You can see the entire city from the restaurant. The food was scrumptious and authentic.

We met friends for dinner but first sampled happy hour first at the bar. The Happy Hour prices were good (especially margaritas) and the food specials were served promptly and were excellent (very crowded at the time). When called to be seated, we were surprised to be seating outside at the furthest possible point from the main entrance, right next... More
