Happy hour had good prices and tasty unique tacos. Margarita had next to no alcohol in it but it was $5 so who can complain? Service was really bad. Our server was polite and nice, seemed like he was just over worked and had too many tables. We did really like him when we would eventually see him!

Blanco Tacos & Tequila is becoming one of our favorite places. The Skinny margaritas are amazing and the food is excellent. An unexpected gem at Fashion Valley. Makes it fun to go shopping and end the evening with a great meal. Service is awesome too.

Without any idea of what we were walking into, other that Mexican Cuisine, we immediately warmly greeted to an energetic clean, and happy environment. We were treated to chips and salsa and, guess what?, Guacamole! Free! Our food was delicious! Thank you Blanco Taco!

Excellent food! Their Mexican street corn was the best I've had in a restaurant. Service was great as well. Our group was late for reservation but they kept our table. Only issue was it was loud, making conversation difficult.

Easy and convenient to set up reservations. This is a really nice place. We were seated on the patio across from the bar, the patrons in the bar area made a but of noise for guest outdoors but overall didn't cause and issue. I love the variety of drinks food. We kind of got overlooked by our server a couple of times but it was Valentine's day night and we were seated in a obscured spot. AMC is located right across so great for a casual date night. Look forward to going back really soon, just not on a Friday night.

You can tell it's a new restaurant. They seemed little disorganized/overwhelmed on the face of things. It has a younger staff but they are very friendly and professional. The food and cocktails were excellent. It would be nice to see more choices in craft tequilas. Noise/music level was high. But overall we were happy and will return

Took a date for Restaurant Week and the experience we had was awesome. Good portion sizes for your money, and we were more than full after the meal. Definitely will be coming back!

I just ate dinner here the night before, and a friend wanted to grab Tacos for Taco Tuesday so I couldn't say no to going back for more. The drinks are great, the guacamole is perfect, and the entrees have such amazing flavors. The chicken fajitas are my favorite still, but I also tried and loved the carne asada bowl and the steak tacos.

This place is amazing. The food was fantastic we actually went for restaurant week and they’re the first restaurant that I have seen that your first course is a beverage. So we had the option of a frose or a margarita. Next was your option of soup or salad, the chicken tortilla soup was outstanding. For the main course I chose tacos and they were also incredible. For dessert I had chocolate tiramisu, which was exceptional. I was a little apprehensive because this place is in a mall but it lived up to more than my expectations.

We tried this place during SD Restaurant Week, and really liked the food and the delicious margaritas. We’ll definitely go back. The food was very fresh and flavorful and the service was excellent.

This was my third or fourth visit to Blanco. My first two experiences were great - excellent service, good food, manageable noise level. My last two experiences, however, have been horrible. EXTREMELY SLOW service (took 20 minutes to even be acknowledged) then waited another 15 minutes for drinks to be served and another 20+ minutes for entrees to arrive . . . but only have the party received initial entree serving, other half of the group had to wait another 10 minutes. Food was sloppily put together and cold. And waiter was terrible - had to asked multiple time for water, napkins, more chips, etc. And the final straw was waiting for check for 15 minutes. Will not be going back and neither will the two other families that were with us.

Like that you can order a la carte... But $8 for a taco is kinda crazy.
