I really enjoy Mexican food (especially being a Tucson native). This isn't tradition Mexican food, but it is fresh and delicious food. My husband and I had the tortilla soup. It had lots of flavor and a generous portion. We shared the three cheese quesadilla, so yummy. Yes, their famous guacamole is the bomb. I can eat the whole bowl.... More

After a several-years hiatus, we returned for dinner at Blanco and are glad we did. Our food items were well-prepared and presented, using fresh ingredients and light touches of herbs and spices. No Sysco-ized food at Blanco! And, we welcomed the taste change from the more traditional, but good, dishes at many Tucson Mexican restaurants. Wait staff were able to... More

Very nice choices of Mexican American dishes. My favorite is the burrito carne asada. It's a great place to do lunch with a friend.

My wife and I stopped in for a quick bite while shopping at La Encantada the other night and grabbed a bite from the Happy Hour menu!! We both were pleasantly surprised with the full flavor experience of the street tacos and a chicken quesadilla! Our waiter was attentive, but not overly so, just right. Open, contemporary atmosphere was fresh... More

This is one of my favorite spots in Tucson. I love to sit out on the patio and enjoy the infused teas, fresh guacamole, and variety of tacos on the menu. It's a great place to stop before or after wandering around the shops at La Encantada. Shade, misters, and fans on the patio provide relief from the Tucson heat... More

Don’t live close to La Encantada but when we go there we usually have lunch at Blanco. We particularly enjoy the fish tacos and the cheese crisp. Service is very good and aforementioned plates excellent.

We were in Tucson for business and wanted to try authentic southwest food. It was recommended to us by another couple. The food was fantastic, I would say it is a combo of Mexican American with southwest flare. Some nice spices in the food. The cocktails were top notch. Prices were very good. We were not disappointed at all. I... More

I LOVE the salmon salad. It's the best! Husband loved bbq pork tacos & friends enjoyed their mahi mahi tacos. Husband thought $3.50 for ice tea pricey. 1/2 price margaritas during happy hour was plus for friends.

You get chips and salsa once seated. I ordered the steak burrito and I wasn't disappointed the steak was cooked to perfection. I also orders the hibiscus margarita with a splash of pomegranate and is was delicious! The view is amazing, will try again! Didn't hurt that my waiter was cute either lol.
