The bartender was amazing. Talked me through what I could have, only two things on the meal are not GF / can’t be made GF. Chips are from a separate fryer. My food was brought out separate and told it was GF, etc. Enjoyed shrimp tacos and chips and Queso. Will be back next time in town, loved then food and people.

Excellent food and felt very safe eating here. They are very knowledgeable and we enjoyed eating here. The rice was amazing. My wife (not gluten-free) and I had the Chicken Pastor and loved it. Also had the chips and salsa—the salsa was very good.

The chips are fried in a separate fryer, they’re really good. We ordered a pitcher of sangria, it’s just okay. Rachel was our waitress and she was fabulous! I ordered the carnitas bowl, it is gluten free and just okay. It wasn’t strong in flavor and rather bland. We’re traveling and eating safely was a huge concern but taste is too, I was safe here but will go somewhere else next time.

Very impressed with the food and service here. Chips are celiac safe. I got the carne Asada bowl and it was amazing. Most of their food is naturally gf so there weren’t a ton of worries eating here. Loved this place for a quick bite while walking Broadway.

Had the crunchy taco bowl here and it was to die for! This was easily the best restaurant experience I've had since my Celiac diagnosis- the staff was so kind, knowledgeable, and experienced that it put my worries at ease. My server gave me a full explanation of their safety procedures (flagged allergy table, separate prep area, manager personally delivers food, etc.). No separate gf menu, but almost everything on the regular menu could be made gf as needed. Amazing food and amazing service :)

I had dinner here on a busy Saturday night and loved the food. Most of the menu can be made gluten free and the staff is very knowledgeable. The queso and Mexican street corn (and margarita) were amazing, maybe the best I’ve ever had and the tacos were really good too! Highly recommend having dinner at Blanco!

Server with initials AM was working the bar/to go order area. I ordered tacos to go. She was so kind, knowledgeable, and reassuring - all while they were slammed! Corn tortillas are made in house and they have a dedicated fryer. Nothing was marked as GF but she knew what my daughter could have and went to be sure on the rice. We ordered simple - chicken tacos with chicken, cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and a side of rice. Daughter is very sensitive and had no reaction. Food was ready as a pick up order in about 20 min.

One of the first things the waiter asked us was if anyone had any food allergies or restrictions, which was a good sign! I got the slow cooker BBQ pork tacos and they were soooo delicious. The chips are made in their own fryer, so those were safe, too. Excellent meal, I would definitely come back.

Had a pretty good meal at Blanco! The chips for the table are GF as they’re fried in a separate fryer and all of the tacos can be made GF on corn tortillas. The beans and rice that come on the side are GF as well. The server was really awesome and double checked with the chef to make sure my food could be safely made GF. I had the carnitas that would’ve been great had they not been overwhelmingly salty to the point it seemed like they had made a mistake! Not sure if it was a fluke, but I would try a different meat next time.

This place was awful. They have a weird tasting "queso" and the carnita fajitas were so burnt they made us physically ill. The waiter never asked if we wanted drinks other than water nor offered a to-go box. Almost $100 meal just to be sick all day. The g great thing for the meal was the chips and the tortilla soup.

No gluten free menu, but the server was knowledgeable about gluten and also double checked with the chef about the specific meals I was interested in. I had a delicious meal of tacos (carnitas and fish) with black beans and rice. The chips and salsa were delicious. The server let me know they have separate areas in the kitchen. I felt safe eating there as a Celiac and it was delicious!
