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

Our group ordered salads, tacos, and guacamole. All were very good. We also ordered a variety of margaritas. I tried a jalepeno mango margarita and it was great! Very flavorful and you could really taste the jalapeno!

A chance finding for lunch, and we were rewarded. Delicious take on Ameri-Mex food. Great service, too. Worth finding your way to this shopping mall.

Blanco's is near our house and a convenient place to meet friends or family. The food is good, prices are reasonable for a restaurant in the La Encanta mall. Service was good. The only downside is that Blanco's is very noisy and makes it hard to hear any conversation. I think because of the noisiness people end up talking louder... More

This restaurant is in an upscale mall in northeast Tuscon. They take your name when you arrive, and will text you when your table is ready, so don't forget your phone. I don't not know if they take advance reservations, as we stopped by on a whim. It was very busy, surprisingly so for a weeknight, but our wait was... More
