I was very surprised to find this huge restaurant with a thirty minute wait on a Wednesday night ! The evening was not too cold, so the indoor and patio areas were full. And, although the restaurant is in a shopping center, it is a rather nice upscale shopping center ..... We ordered two burritos and shared, so we could... More

We dined here and sat outside on the heated patio. Our server, Parker, was excellent and recommended the guacamole which was out of this world. We're visiting from out of town but will definitely dine here before we head out of town. We're going to ask for Parker to be our server. The salsa and chips were excellent. We split... More

While I tend to stay away from Restraunts in Malls, I found Blanco to be the Best Mexican Cuisine Restaurants I have visited. Located in the La Encantada Shopping Center at 2905 E Skyline Dr in Tucson, AZ, there is indoor and Patio seating. We enjoyed a lazy afternoon, seated on the patio tasting several of the Mexican dishes, and... More

Previous reviews said that the acoustics were quite loud. Fortunately we were seated in the outdoor patio area - still it was quite lively. The chips and salsa were a nice start to the evening. We ordered the ceviche which was excellent, however, another server placed it on the table with no plates nor serving utensils. Finally we flagged down... More

We sat on the heated patio and tried a few different dishes. The chips with salsa and warm queso was a great start to the meal. We had the roasted chicken cheese crisps and steak burrito. Both were very tasty. The waiter was very accommodating of our small children and we appreciated that. The view from the patio is very... More

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
