Restaurant of the Week: Blanco Tacos + Tequila

Blanco Tacos + Tequila, with locations in Phoenix, Scottsdale and Tucson, serves up modern Mexican cuisine in an upbeat, yet casual atmosphere.

Known for great margaritas and tacos, Blanco is Fox Restaurant Concept’s Mexican fare creation. The decor is bright and airy with the bar being the focal point of the dining room.

You absolutely must start your meal at Blanco with their “famous” guacamole that has roasted poblano and Anaheim chiles, caramelized onion and cotija cheese. Be sure to add the Mexican Street Corn to your appetizer order as well – it’s so delicious, it is one of our favorite items on the menu!

If you’re looking for something light for your entree, you can’t go wrong with any of the four salads they offer. All of the tacos are great, our personal favorite is the Braised Green Chile Pork. If you prefer enchiladas, the Beef “House Specialty” and the Green Chile Pork are our top picks.


For cocktails, there are some great margarita and sangria options. The White Peach and Hibiscus margarita stood out above the rest, although they are all delicious.

If you manage to save room for dessert, our recommendation is the Mexican Chocolate Cake.
