For several years, this has been one of my favorite places for Mexican food while in Scottsdale. Recently, I noticed the portions are smaller and the chicken mole (my personal favorite) and side orders of rice recipes have changed. In my book they have gone from a four star to a three star. The classic combination platters are good, but... More

My mom and 12-year-old brother were in town last weekend and wanted to go out for Mexican food. I had heard of Blanco Tacos and had it on my list of places to try for a while now and was thoroughly impressed! It was very busy however we did not have to wait long for a table. We were served...

Definitely a great restaurant to try if you like Tex Mex cuisine. The food is very good and the service is excellent. Portions are ample with choices of sides. Prices are fair and some drinks are half price at Happy Hour! Worth a visit.

Great place! We had a fantastic lunch at Blanco's served by our waiter Mason. His recommendations were spot on. The Mango Jalapeño margarita on the rocks was delicious as was the Mixed Berry margarita. Delicious chips and salsa. We ordered the beef enchiladas with red sauce and carne asada burrito smothered with both red and green sauce and they did... More

Sat down at the bar and was greeted nicely by Hayley. I had a Pacifico on tap. Chips and salsa were served quickly. Good salsa and chips. I ordered the salmon and a Caesar salad both were very tasty. The salmon was not over cooked and came on vegetables and spinach. The entire bar staff was very attentive. Will definitely... More

Nice open ambience. The garage doors open up to the patio. The service was very slow. It took more than an hour to get our food. The chips were just ok and my specialty braised beef enchilada was fatty and unremarkable.

We were visiting from NJ and were in the mood for Mexican. There were several choices but we settled on this place. Food was good and we were all pleased. Our server was amazing, pleasant, and friendly. Atmosphere was nice as well and if we lived around here we would be back again.

This was our first visit and we really enjoyed everything. The food was great as were the drinks and the ambiance. Our server, CJ, was very helpful in explaining the menu options and was also very helpful when we asked about his suggestions for local hiking in the area. The food was quick, tasty and well priced. Definitely try it!

We had a really nice meal here. Prompt service. Our server was great, very attentive and a pleasure to talk to. We had tacos with rice , beans and Mexican street corn. All very tasty. We also started with a chopped salad and the chips and salsa. The chips were homemade and wonderful. It's an open kitchen style restaurant with... More
