Stopped in for a quick lunch while in the area for business. Dined at the bar - the bartender was great, and helpful with suggestions. He ultimately steered me towards the tacos, which I was able to mix and match. I got the braised short rib, bbq pork and chipotle shrimp, all of which were great! Chips and salsa are also very tasty, I'd definitely recommend stopping in!

I didn't sit outside, but the patio looked like it would have been a nice place to sit down for a drink.

If you love a great vibe, great people watching and wonderful tasty "Mexican" food you must try this place for dinner and drinks......order the Prize Winning Pork Tacos with some pickled carrots and peppers and enjoy the trip to food heaven! The salsa and chips have a wonderful taste and add an order of guacamole you are set! Great cocktails and always nice wine by the glass. It is a busy place and may be lined up but is worth the wait. PS my wife loves the braised short rib Tacos so I felt I needed to add that comment. They have a great burger if you prefer and some wonderful salad combinations. Enjoy!

I love going to Blanco and have turned a lot of friends on to this place. They serve the best butter rice with their tacos and it can be addictive. I love their machaca quesadilla and they have great guacamole. The cocktails are yummy and very fresh in this Arizona heat. The service is always great. I love their happy hour and you can get such a good deal. Blanco is a great restaurant and I highly recommend it!

In a nutshell...Blanco sucks. Bland food, staff uninterested, over priced drinks with no redeeming kick-back. Either I'm hard to please or most others like whatever is placed in front of them.

This restaurant is part of the Fox chain all good. Located in the Borgata it has a large bar area, inside and outside seating. The food is delicious and portions,are large. The short rib quesadilla is amazing as are the pork tacos with pickled onion. Never had a bad meal
