We were in Tucson to visit our son. He suggested this restaurant and drove us there (fortunately). They have excellent food, drink, and service. Good local beer. They have a wide selection of tacos, and you can mix and match, selecting 3 different ones if you like. I had the green chile pork burrito, which was huge and very tasty.... More

We loved everything about this place. The atmosphere, view, food and drink were wonderful! I had the fajitas and my husband did a variety of tacos. We loved all of it. The staff was great as well.

Pros: If you're looking for GREAT Mexican food with a view, Blanco is your place. Our party of six dined on many representative items from the menu (tacos, burritos, enchiladas, crisps, etc.) and everyone agreed that their food was excellent. Cons: If you want to have a conversation and/or anyone in your party is hearing impaired, Blanco is NOT the... More

Very noisy with loud constant music. Joined by loud screams from all the children. There were at least 15 children younger than five. That said this is a terrific place for young families. The food is delicious that is served efficiently. This is food thought through with excellent flavors.

Had the pork tacos with corn tortillas. Yum!! The rice and beans were excellent. Chips were light, thin and warm. Salsa very good. We ordered the queso. It was good but just a little too thick. Would still order it again. I didn't care for the margarita. I forgot to order top shelf so that could be the problem. Not... More

I enjoyed my dinner here. The service was excellent. Great chips and salsa. Very good margaritas. I had the shrimp fajitas. There was a good amount of shrimp and it was cooked well and tasty - and served with fresh tortillas. It's not the most authentic Mexican food but it's good choice for a fun, hip night out.

Good flavors, friendly service at the bar. Never had a dry drink. Had the Cheese Crisp (open faced quesadilla) with shrimp & corn. Subtle flavor. Three tacos were great as you can mix & match. Fresh ingredients. Busy place.

I got the fish tacos with a group of friends. Very small portion size, and did not taste that great. It does have a nice view of the city.

Best enchiladas ever. Great happy hour prices. Service was fast and attentive. Margaritas were great, not watered down. Contemporary vibe. Great sunset view.
