Blanco Cantina – Calgary 17th
Blanco Cantina is the ultimate central spot for socializing and watching the game - we are always down to fiesta, whether you grab a quick bite or stay all night.
Our tequila & spirits collection is off the hook, with over 75 hand-selected choices.
We believe nachos should be as individual as you are, so build your own!
We love brunch (ahem, day drinking) so join us weekend & holiday from 11am - 3pm.
We have classic margaritas on the rocks, slushy concoctions, and a fun selection of feature cocktails & drinks.
Last but not least, save some room for our Big-Ass Nachos and Burritos and; we won't judge if you have to use a knife & fork...

Tacos and Tequila.. how can you go wrong here. Service was great and food was fast and outstanding
Thanks you so much for the outstanding review. Cant wait to have you back at our cantina for more tacos and tequila! Bradlee Mawer General Manager
Went on taco tuesday for half price tacos. Still felt like i was iver paying at half price. For fish, beef or shrimp tacos you can only order amounts set by the establishment which stops mixing and matching. Normal taco condiments like pico de gallo and sour cream cost extra. Red cabbage and cilanto on every taco which goes well with some but not all. For the price the tacos need to be better. Also charging so much for cheap mexican beer doesnt help with the feeling of value. Waitress allowed our drinks to empty alot and had trouble explaining the menu
Absolutely dug the vibe and the staff were amazing. Food was good, definitely need to go back and try more of the menu. Killer nachos.
Food is just OK.
Thanks for the outstanding review. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any feedback on how we can make our tacos exceptional. Bradlee Mawer GM.email@example.com General Manager
The food was very good and my waitress was very nice, very fast service, food only took 10-15 minutes to get to our table! would definitely recommend and am looking forward to coming back
Drinks were great and service was wonderful but unfortunately my tacos were way too salty.
Natchos were great with the brisket
Excellent happy hour specials. Best tacos I’ve had in a while.
We had a great time at blanco. Margaritas are unreal, service was great! Definitely going back for another happy hour!
Awesome, happy hour is one of the best in the city.
Tacos were good but not as good as I was expecting after the reviews I read. They were worth half price but I wouldn’t have been happy paying full price for them. Perhaps we should have paid the extra for some additional toppings just to add a little more to them.
Margaritas were good.
Would still recommend the restaurant.
Gluten free/ celiac friendly, amazing margaritas. Nachos pricey and very small portion. Tacos where great
Really creative menu, we has the happy hour specials and very well worth the $$ the drinks alone were so delicious!
Jess is a great server and makes us feel welcome
Wasn't too busy, was there with a party of 6 and a few tables around us but not too busy. Service was slow but not too bad until it came to paying. Ordered 1 Last drink and 2 desserts to go. Took about 20 minutes to get drink or desserts. We were about to cancel the order but server was no where to be found. When we finally got the drink and deserts we asked for the bill, separated. Received the bills but server didn't bring machine so we ended up waiting about 45 minutes to come back with machine to pay. We finally spotted our server and she was with another table for about 15 minutes not sure if they were settling there bills or ordering but there was no urgency in her trying to process our payment as we were there from 6:40pm and we didn't get to pay until about 9pm. Food was good but not worth the wait for a not so busy night. Been the Blanco plenty but this was the worse service I've ever gotten.
Table side guaca is super good. The tacos are tiny. If you don’t go during happy hour it’s def over priced. But overall awesome. Our server was great! But that’s hit or miss.
Much better than Kensington location for sure.
Great all day happy hour here! Service was awesome this time! Our server was really good on checking in with us all the time! I forgot to get her name and so she can get recognize. We hope to have her again on our next happy hour at Blanco! Foods and drinks are fantastic! 😉
Hair is pork taco.
Love this place, the atmosphere and food are always great, the staff are excellent!
Good food, our servers got messed up and they gave me the wrong drink but other that that it was good! Lil pricey but would probably come back again. I’d love to try the brunch menu
Great authentic Mexican food. I’ll be back for sure!
The margaritas were great; food was only ok. Great place to have a lively visit with friends.
Went to the downtown location for business lunch. Everything was great until I ordered a chilli coconut margarita kit to go. Got home and only then noticed there was NO seal on the bottle. Got through half the bottle before my friend said they were not spicy like I said they were. I finally tried a glass and it was horrible. Tasted like bar lime and that’s all. I have bought about 30 of these kits from the west springs location so I would say I’m a bit of an expert with this cocktail. Needless to say I was not impressed, nor were my guests whom I was bragging about how great this drink was. Feel a bit ripped off for the price. Otherwise food was good, service was good. Take away was a rip job. Went to the west springs location and bought another and it was awesome. Was told they make it at each location so if you wanna buy, go west!
Excellent nachos and margaritas were great. Service was excellent
Took a friend from out of town here for dinner. She said it was the best dinner they had had on their trip! Taco’s were amazing, but expensive once you add some pico, guacamole or sour cream. They turn into 7 dollar plus tacos real quick. Margaritas were delish but again pricy. Service was ok, our server kinda forgot about us once we got our meal so we ordered another drink from a different server who walked by. We will definitely be back and will consider coming for happy hour instead.
Food great. Drinks great. Service very slow. Too noisy but not their fault. Motorcycles with loud engines reviving by.
Great ambiance and service. Very quick and friendly! Get the pitcher margaritas! Super good, especially watermelon!
Don’t get me wrong. The food portions, display, drinks, service, and ambience were well done but literally everything was way too salty I don’t think I’ll be going back.
One of our orders was wrong and took some time to receive correct one. Was kind of caught between indoor restaurant noise and street noise on the first row of patio seating outside restaurant so made it hard to talk
We went on Taco Tuesday. So it was busy and loud. I am not a fan of heat, so asked for no jalapeños on my taco’s. Even without the peppers , they were so hot I couldn’t finish any of them. I think they even add ground jalapeños to the fish batter and coleslaw. I wanted the brisket, fish and pulled pork to be the stars of my taco’s.
Great food, would come back for sure! The sangria was not great, but margaritas, delish
Our server was friendly and polite - made great drink suggestions for both the alcohol drinkers and non alcohol drinkers. Food was fantastic and fast! Atmosphere was lovely and the decor of the restaurant is fun!
Our server finished her shift at 6 so we paid our bill with her thinking someone else would take over as this is usually protocol. We sat for 2 full hours after paying without one person coming over to check on us or ask if we needed more drinks. We did. No eye contact or anything. Too bad because we used to enjoy going there but cannot understand why this happened. We all tipped 18-20% so that wasn’t the issue (I don’t think??)
