Blanco Cantina – Calgary 17th

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...

Food was good, service was good but make sure you wear warm clothing. We sat away from the doors and were still cold.
Great energy and vibe in this restaurant... and great food. Also just generally great staff as all were helpful when I knocked my drink over and broke the glass. I would definitely recommend!
Had the tacos and they are so delicious with all the different hot sauce options.
I LOVE the Diablo Shrimp tacos, and I could swim in the coconut chili margaritas
This is my new favorite place to go for some good drinks and delicious tacos!!
Blanco is our friend group go-to spot. Love it there.
We love this place so much! Food and drinks are the best!!!
I love it here. The food is always great, the service is great, and the Coconut Marg is the best!!
You’ll be seeing me tomorrow looooveeee the food & happy hour pricing
Showed up for happy hour with some friends, shared a mix of different tacos along with delicious thirst quenching and palate exciting margaritas and sipping tequila. Server was very helpful in our choices of food and drink. Had a great time and spent less than $25/person which was unexpected and truly a pleasure. Will be back!
Great happy hour and late night prices for tequila and tacos!
My favourite bar on 17th!! Always have a great time:)
Great staff, best margaritas and nachos and great location.
Great place. Chicken wings are great
Always the best place to go for the best tacos! My personal favourite restaurant in the city.
It was a nice surprise to find out it was Taco Tuesday when we were there. The tacos were amazing and half price! You can't beat that.
Good service and food is amazing
Great atmosphere, delicious food, and the tequila flight was amazing.
Great service provided by my favorite waitress Jess!
Great food. Great drinks. Great service. Love, Love, the 3-5 Happy Hour and Make your own Tacos.
Good tacos and margaritas. More authentic Mexican in terms of tacos and tequila at a good price in a casual setting that is fun. They are not using a molcajete and tableside conversation to charge to a premium.
First time in many years to enjoy Mexican. Food was excellent, would recommend it to friends.
The food was great. 10/10 would recommend. Proper cove protocols followed. Felt very safe eating there
Service wasn't great. Too crowded. No social distancing measures followed during COVID times.
Server (I forget her name :( sorry! She had dark hair) was awesome! She was very friendly and patient with my parents asking lots of questions about tequila they in no way intended to purchase!
It was just ok. The nachos were good! But the rest was just ok. Drinks were great!
Everything was great - the server made sure we ordered in time for happy hour!!
Erik was an amazing server and really made our day!
If you're looking for great tacos and great margheritas this is exactly what you'll get. Reasonable prices and amazing taste!
Such a cute spot with an amazing selection and their DIY nachos were greattttt
Fun place to go and a great happy hour!
The food was very very bland and the service was absolutely terrible!They need to give the same service to all customers.We were made to wait while guests who were seated AFTER us got their orders first.
Good food. Nice environment. Will certainly be back.
Ok for basic food not gourmet by any means. I’d do lunch not dinner
The food was terrible. I actually got sick in the bathroom minutes after eating the tacos. Told the waitress and all she said was “oh I’m so sorry it didn’t agree w you” then brought us the full bill. The guacamole was gross and made with old avocados. Management gave zero cares about any of it. So disappointing.
Great! Need more handsome male servers
Very good! Tacos were delicious and the margarita was pretty unique. Downside is that traffic is so loud so recommend sitting within their patio or inside. Would definitely recommend.
The food was amazing! My husband and I were celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary and wanted to so something different! This hit the spot. Tequila flight was great. The only thing was that the music seemed a tad loud for dinnertime, sometimes couldn't hear each other talk. But other than that everything else was great. Also please let our server know, I believe Maddie was her name, that she was awesome!
Every time we come to Blanco the service and food is absolutely amazing, they have the best queso in the city hands down, and real tacos
