“Won't go back”

Blanca White's
Cuisines: Mexican
Restaurant details
Reviewed 31 January 2013

We had stopped by and had a few coctails & appitizers. The food was average the bartender paid too much attention to his regular customers. although it wasn't a great experience we might have gone back again except for the sign they have outside their door. It says "We don't speak english but we won't make fun of your Spanish." Sorry but this still is the USA where the official language is English. If this sign was the other way around it would be called racist.

We went in take a seat at the bar, to watch a football game. The Bartender was great. He made an uncomfortable visit tolerable. Several tables outside were filled. Those folks began coming in to complain they had no service. Then we noticed folks complaining about food and service to the Manager. They all stood right next to the bar to argue. In all, four different parties came to the bar to complain. We split Fajitas. They we OK but not at all what most Americans would expect. As seasoned travelers, we have eaten all over Mexico and liked our Fajitas, but most folks won't find them appealing. The menu was very disjointed and hard to read/comprehend. Don't waste your time or money. It's a shame; they have a great view of the bay.

The whole experience at Blanca White's was wonderful. Went there the day after Thanksgiving and had the Pancho Albanil Shirmp, which was unbelievably wonderful, along with several margaritas and several purple fictions. All were great! The d.j. was entertaining and played some great music, from jazz to country to anything you desired. The food, drink and entertainment are really great there. A little bit off of the main Blvd, but definitely worth looking for.

The open-air style venue lets you see the sun setting over the bay. The service is nothing short of first rate. The tequila shrimp is fantastic but takes a back seat to the mouth watering ceviche that they marinate in lime juice for 24 hours. The menu is somewhat limited but gives you enough options to keep it diverse and family friendly. The #1 reason to go to Blanca White's is the Margarita Tamarindo! This is a drink unlike any other. Do yourself a favor and order this sweet beverage with a hint of spice and you won't be sorry!
