Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Wife and I went for our 25th wedding anniversary. Here’s some words of advice: the braised chicken EVERYTHING is delicious. The food overall is amazing, but anything braised chicken (burritos, enchiladas, chimichangas, tacos) will make your tastebuds dance in heavenly deliciousness!
Service was great! Food and Cocktails were amazing! 💜
Great service, friendly staff, great food 10/10 recommend
Excellent food! Excellent service!
Great restaurant and yummy food!
Very tasty, pleasant ambience, friendly and helpful staff!
We were looking for a spot close to Footprint Arena before the Phoenix Mercury playoff game that was fun, not super expensive and family friendly. This fit the bill! Food was delish and we were in love with the chips, salsa and queso. Happy hour drink specials were terrific too. And we were out in plenty of time to make it to the game for tipoff.
Service EXTREMELY slow. Had three beers before our meal arrived. Flavor fair but both meals cold. Our waiter sensed it and never checked up on us. Won't return on our next trip.
We went for drinks and food but our waiter never asked if we wanted more drinks and he’d never stay long enough for us to ask him. Food was meh. Nothing I’d go back for.
Staff was excellent, seated right away. The food was delicious and the drink did not disappoint either. Great location and very nice inside.
Good food, service and environment.
Absolutely terrible service. Celebrating a promotion and then hitting first Friday to walk around. Asked for our checks at 8:40 and didn’t get the checks and pay out until about 9:30. First Friday was closing up so the night was done and we all went home. (Checks we’re also wrong but we didn’t want to wait 20 mins for the server to come back). We frequent this location and it will probably be the last time we come in.
Good experience, good food, good drinks and a wonderful ambiance. Waitress was asked if they valid parked in the fry’s parking lot. Waitress stated yes returned my parking ticket assuming the parking ticket was verified and paid. Returned to my vehicle to exit the parking lot and it was determined that I still need to pay a $25 parking fee. Only down fall I had with this experience.
The food was okay. But, the ambiance was really nice.
Definitely would go here again! Great food, friendly staff, nice atmosphere!
Called my margarita. Azuria, fresh lime juice, Cointreau & splash of orange juice. Just right & delicious. Had grilled avocado tacos. Wished I'd ordered the black beans rather than pintos but not by much.
Two items were outstanding! The Shrimp and Crab Cocktail is unique and wonderful! Light and refreshing with a little heat. And it is easy to see why the BBQ pork Taco is award winning. You really want to try these!
Food and Server were top notch! Very nice atmosphere as well!
The food was amazing. We went for restaurant week. The price was very good. We enjoyed our evening.
Food here was delicious. We took advantage of Restaurant Week, which was a great deal. The asado tacos were tender and very flavorful. The nachos with meat were great and a generous portion. Only criticism that the service was slow. This is our 2nd time eating here and we would return.
Absolutely delicious! We chose from the restaurant week menu. Every course was fantastic. 1st time visit and we are definitely coming back.
Great vibe and fantastic food! We will be back!!
Great service! Food was delicious! We loved everything that we ordered from drinks to appetizers to entrees.
The service was poor. It took 50 min to get our food. Our waitress was not attentive at all. The food was very good once we got it.
Blanco is a go-to spot for us in Phoenix and we love the downtown location. The warm queso dip is outstanding, as is just about all the food we've tried. On this visit, we had Easton as our server and he was absolutely fantastic! He was very patient with us, acknowledged us INCREDIBLY quickly (which is a thing with me) and warmly, and he was very pleasant to deal with. He's got solid menu knowledge, helped us navigate gluten-free options and ensured he'd informed the kitchen of (my wife's) gluten allergy. He got our drinks out quickly, he checked on us at the right times, and overall he navigated us through a very pleasant dining experience. I really liked but didn't love the award-winning BBQ pork tacos (just a little sweet for my tastes but if you like sweet bbq, this might be your thing). Can't go wrong with the cheese enchilada (didn't have it on this visit but have had it before) or the crispy tacos. Atmosphere is definitely energetic but I didn't mind at all. The other thing about the great service is that it's not just your server who treats you well - every staff member was certain to acknowledge us and/or ask if we need anything. That's not very common. We're big fans of the Fox Restaurant Concepts group of restaurants and Blanco is yet another winner.
Late night drinks and food. Great experience all around. Gabriel did a fantastic job taking care of us! One of our favorite downtown spots!
I order three different tacos and each was unique and delicious. The house margarita was outstanding and even the chips and salsa were special. Great food, friendly service and a pretty restaurant.
Great food & drinks - highly recommend trying the tequila flights!
Fantastic time! Went at open due to our schedule and everything was perfect. Great team and good/drink was top notch!!
Bad service - had to wait minimum 20 minutes for drink orders
First time here from out of town. The manager greeted us and welcomed us which was nice. The waitress was friendly and the food was good.
Great ambiance and food - vibrant atmosphere! Great location in the heart of downtown Phoenix!
We had a family dinner. The food and service were great!
Amazing! Just amazing! Loved everything- food, service and decor was perfect!
Some of the best service I’ve ever had, attentive staff, and AMAZING food. If you’re in Phoenix you MUST eat here.
Avocado tacos are awesome and chorro beans were incredible! Love having Blanco downtown!
Super cute restaurant, nice art, decorations. Great cocktails, delicious food. Good service. Unfortunately the food made us sick. I was really surprised about 1 hour after eating there, stomach upset. It was probably just a one off because it seems like a great place. I hate getting sick from eating out though.
Most try. Awesome food and service
