Was here a few nights ago. Chips and salsa are good. The guacamole was pretty good too. We thought the chicken nachos were excellent. The downside were the fajitas. One of us had the shrimp and the other had the steak/shrimp combo fajitas. The shrimp were over cooked. Good flavor, but mushy and chewy consistency. The steak was rather tough... More

My sisters and I went there last weekend for drinks and snacks. We enjoyed the guacamole and the ceviche. Both bartenders and servers were very nice and the service was great.

It'll be hard to not fill up on the amazing housemade chips, salsa and guac, but try as their entrees are worth saving room for. Margeritas, yum! Fun, lively atmosphere.

I wish we had one of these in California! Often, I find restaurant guacamole bland and overpriced. At Blanco, it's both spicy and cooling. In fact, everything we had at Blanco was well-seasoned, delightfully spicy without being debilitating on the tongue, and memorable. We ordered the guacamole, pork enchiladas, the mole with calabacitas, and the chicken fajitas. They do gluten... More

this was close to out hotel and recommended. Our waiter was neat but made sure we got our questions answered. Excellent food--the pan enchiladas he recommended were amazing. Great white sangria too.

A bit more upscale Mexican restaurant. Tacos are smaller in size three to an order comes with rice and choice of type of beans. Fresh chips and nicely spiced salsa to start. Nice environment, clean and spacious.

We really enjoy going here as a family and there is always a great atmosphere. There is seating outside, has heaters int eh winter, and big booths and benches inside as well as tables. Often there is a wait so ring ahead. Food is always good and fresh, the guacamole was not what I remembered it from the last time,... More

We had dinner recently at Blanco and really enjoyed it. They had several nice salad choices, in addition to burritos, tacos, etc. Everything was delicious, and service was top-notch.

This is a great gourmet Mexican restaurant. Terrific happy hour from 3-6 Mon-Fri.. We met our friends for happy hour just at 5:30 PM , the rush hour, and parking problems. They do have valet parking because the parking lot fills up quickly around 5:30 PM. The selection is wonderful. My wife and I had the Chicken Tacos. I also... More

This is a great choice for families and friends. The service was great and unlike most casual restaurants like this, service was not rushed. The meal was well paced and everything served hot and fresh. The waiter was knowledgeable about menu items (the enchiladas are more of a lasagne type serving in a skillet) and checked to be sure we... More
