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

We always bring visitors here for the views and the food. Not to mention the margaritas and quacamole with a seemingly endless refilling of the the chip bowl. Service sometimes can be slow but if you are with friends you don't even notice.

This place has great views, but the food comes out cold. We have had this issue now several times. For some reason the food is not hot when it comes out. Otherwise it would have been a great place.

We were in Tucson recently and had the pleasure of dining at Blanco. It was recommended by our concierge at the Westin and we were not disappointed. It was a fun a lively atmosphere with people of all ages dining there. Everyone who we came in contact with throughout the evening was happy and helpful without being TOO over the... More

If you are unfamiliar with or dislike Sonoran Mexican food then I would be cautious. If this is your thing then you will love Blanco. The BBQ pork taco (on soft corn of course) is one of the best things I have ever eaten. The drink specials are great and they give generous portions. The service is great. However, I... More

This is one of those unusual restaurants that gets it right from the get go. It really has everything going for it, but most importantly, there is a chef here who knows how to cook. His or her expertise showed through in all we tried, from the guacamole, to the chicken mole to the salmon. While they were not gourmet... More

Blanco has a great happy hour, generous margaritas, great guacamole and a nice view from the terrace (although partially of the parking lot at La Encantada). The service is friendly and the rest of the menu is fine - I don't expect fine dining so I'm not disappointed. Looking forward to my next visit.

Another example of a semi- upscale place trying to do Mexican street food and failing : At least when it came to the tacos which should be a no brainer.. The carne asada versions had obviously been pre-cooked and then slapped on the flat top before service. The grilled fish variety were also dry and over cooked and the fried... More

This was our first visit to Blanco and we were not disappointed. Their guacamole is yummy and the food very good. Try to sit outside to enjoy the spectacular views of Tucson. I would recommend to come for happy hour and avoid crowds.
