We ate dinner here because it was close to where we were staying and had good reviews. It definitely lived up to those expectations. We sat outside and the misters helped to make it more enjoyable. The food was very good and the atmosphere lively. They have an open kitchen so you can watch the chef's at work. If you come on the weekend, come early because this place is very popular.

We dined at Blanco on a Sunday evening, the place was busy. The complementary chips and salsa were okay. The salsa was puréed, so more of a dip than salsa. The Mexican salad was very flavorful. The shrimp tacos were great, loaded with toppings. Margaritas were decent also. Service was great too. Only complaint, being charged $.50 for a dollop of pico de gallo, seemed ridiculous. Our total bill was well north of $45, so asking for a little pico and being charged for it??

Delicious from start to finish. They have three yummy salsas - traditional, chipotle & salsa Verde. All yummy! Definitely get the queso. We had the short rib burrito bowl with pinto beans & the fixings. It was so good! Carne asada tacos were also tasty. The enchilada comes layered in a mini cast iron skillet so it's a little soupy when you dig in but it all tastes good! Margarita was perfectly limey & not too sweet.
