They have really great food. You can sit inside or outside which is covered. I love the ambience outside. They also have a fun Happy Hour. You can't go wrong here. The food is so good.

We had a quick lunch while shopping, choosing to sit on the patio. Our server was very friendly and efficient. Chips and salsa were good, the salsa could have used a little more heat. We had the grilled street corn to start, which was hands down the best corn I've ever had. I could've eaten a cereal bowl full of... More

My husband and I like to eat here for special occasions. The guacamole is so fresh and delicious and everything we have ever ordered there is tasty. We went on Saturday night and it was busy but we were seated within 15 minutes. It was very noisy but that was expected since it was so busy. Blanco has the best... More

We went to Blanco on a Monday night which was very empty compared to the norm. However I could see that it would be very lively when a little more full with outdoor seating, good lighting, etc. The food was excellent - I had a burrito and it was delicious. Staff was very attentive and seemed to care if we... More

We met friends at La Encantada Mall for lunch. We were greeted promptly by a very friendly young lady. We chose to set on the patio to enjoy a beautiful spring day. Our group ordered fish tacos, pork tacos and a pork burrito. While waiting for our entree's' the complementary hot chips & salsa were delicious. Everyone thought their choices... More

This restaurant was a very pleasant surprise as we were just looking for a place to have a late lunch while checking out La Encantada Mall. We were immediately and warmly greeted, seated inside but on the edge of outdoors with the "garage doors" open. Although there were no "vegetarian" dishes listed on the menu, the server was quick to... More

The cooks need better lighting, please! Everything we ordered was soggy. Mexican salad with giant clumps of soggy cheese goo in the abundant dressing, and soggy, soggy tacos. The blood orange margarita was very good, but shushed by our wait staff, who was busy watching other tables.

Party of 7 Adults from out of state celebrating a Birthday. We were told they " Don't take Reservations', but a large table was being held for a group "With Reservations". Outdoor dining with a great view of Mountains & city lights. Everyone was happy with their meal.
