    I struggle with Blanco. They're inconsistent with staff training and suddenly one day used their fryer for the new churro appetizer a while back, so nothing was safe (chips, fries). There is hidden dairy lots of places- butter in the rice and one of the chicken tacos. I get the Baja chicken. I know the award winning bbq tacos are not gf, and I think the short ribs are NOT either. Be careful with their fryer for the chips... Ask to be sure. Overall, staff is just inconsistent with knowledge.

    A very friendly environment! Loved the waiter he knew everything that was gluten free and even took the time to write a list for me. Great food too!

    What a great place. Wait staff very versed in their Gluten free options which is the majority of the menu.

    6/20/16 GF chips in a dedicated frier on request. Had the chicken fajitas with corn tortillas (note the shrimp is basted in a beer batter so not GF) The chicken fajitas were awesome and had no reactions. Highly recommend. Their guacamole was great. 4/29/17 Update, the fajitas now use soy sauce in recipe so you must ask special to eliminate and make special it'll take longer but they will accommodate. I Had the beef enchiladas made with layer corn tortillas like a lasagna.....GF and delicious!

    Fantastic food. I too had a very knowledgeable server who had a sister with celiac. They also offered fresh chips from the dedicated fryer at neighboring Zinburgers (ate there the next day). Only issue was the server did not bring out the dishes herself, and the plates were mixed up on the table. That isn't very reassuring to a celiac.

    Seriously good food. Server was VERY knowledgeable, and my guest (not gfree) tried a bunch of stuff, and while I thought I'd be limited on choices per another review, I was shocked at everything I could eat!!! Tacos galore, and they even made me a crisp (normally on flour tortilla) on a corn one. The manager even walked next door to fry me chips because their other restaurant next door has a gf dedicated fryer. Talk about great hospitality and customer service!!!Yay blanco and great servers!! Can't wait to go back!!

    Be Careful! I read such good reviews about Blanco Taco and Tequila in Scottsdale I couldn't wait to try the restaurant on Camelback in Phoenix. I called ahead and spoke to the owner or manager - Matt. He assured me he could take care of me and I could safely eat there. I get there and the waitress brings me the allergen list. They don't have a gluten free menu. She tells me I can have the pork tacos. I asked her about the garlic in it because I don't like garlic. She goes to ask Matt, he comes over to the table and tells me the allergen sheet is wrong and the pork is made with beer. He then tells me he also owns another safer restaurant a couple of stores over and that I would be safer eating there. My family ordered Mexican. I ordered a salad from the other place which was delivered to my table in Blanco. I wanted a meal not a salad. I hated the salad and left hungry. Matt never should have told me that I could eat safely at Blanco if it wasn't true. He said I can make you something but you can't have the marinades and the flavor will be terrible. He felt I would be safer eating at his other restaurant. Stay away. Very disappointing experience.
