We are big fans of Cafe Otro so it doesn't take much for us to like Gallo Blanco. We've visited a couple of time now. The flapjacks are a hit with the kids, as is the horchata. The tacos are good and if you're lucky...More

If you have friends visiting from out of town, you must take them to Gallo Blanco. Even the pickiest eaters can find a tasty meal. I highly recommend their Huevos and the Chilango.

We came there suggested by our host in Phx. Definitely one of the best Mexican ever tried. It’s not the usual Mexican restaurant: same ingredients but more refinement. Suggest to try ceviche and all different kind of meats they have for tacos. 5 star.

We had a group of five at a Friday night Diamondbacks game. Hungry after the game we decided to try the new Gallo. A unique environment and a very comfortable space. Great food and the kitchen was rocking at 9:30PM. Recommend.

We just went to the new restaurant on Pierce and 10th Street. We were there early for lunch and there was plenty of parking on the street. Don't know how that goes later. The menu is pretty difficult to read between small and elaborate font...More
