Mexican
Blanco is more than your typical Mexican restaurant, it‘s an escape from the ordinary, a happy hour hang out, a place to sit back, recharge and party. It’s a vacation in your neighborhood that helps you relax with your favorite people. For food, margaritas, and good times, Blanco is the perfect place to find your bliss.

What could be better than street-style tacos, premium tequila, and a panoramic view of the Tucson valley? Blanco in Tucson features a modern take on classic Mexican fare, such as our award-winning Slow-Cooked BBQ Pork Tacos, as well as signature drinks made with seasonal fruits like our Pomegranate Grapefruit Margarita!

    All of our food was slightly warm or cold … I had to have them reheat my cheese crisp as it was cold cold and nobody wants that. It was ok but nothing memorable. Needed more flavor and balance of flavors …. The chips were the best thing …. There is much better Mexican food to be had in Tucson.

    It has been some time since we’ve eaten here. We ordered Margaritas that had little to no tequila. For $13 one would expect to have more than sweet and sour mix in the drink. We ordered tortillas to go with our meal and they were $1 each! The bowls we ordered were very bland with all the ingredients tasting the same. Overall, it was a very expensive, disappointing meal.

    Chips and salsa were great. The entrees were mediocre. Service was slow. Waitress was very nice, but took awhile to check in and it took awhile for food to arrive once ordered. I will eat here again due to great ambience of the outdoor seating area and great chips and salsa. Not going to make it on my list of favorites though.

    Another good experience. Our server was very attentive even though he was busy. Drinks were very good, food was good but my dish came out hot and my wife’s stone cold. They remade her plate but obviously by the time she received hers I was done mine. I would have expected some type of comp but nothing was given.

    The food at this restaurant is amazing. We arrived in time to take advantage of the early diner margarita special. Delicious! I had the mahi mahi taco which I enjoyed. My husband had the cheese crisp. He shared a little and I’ll vouch for that as a great choice. Reservation on Open Table was easy and we were all set upon arrival!

    Restrooms are M-W. I am a lady, and went to use the restroom, and had to put the seat down first before I could use. Disgusting that I had to put a seat down, not to mention that the floor in front of the toilet had dribble, where we place our feet.
