PHOENIX -- Blanco Tacos + Tequila opened its newest location at Biltmore Fashion Park on Tuesday. The restaurant offers tasty Mexican dishes, and may also surprise visitors with its hidden tequila basement.

Gina Maravilla visited the new Blanco location for the grand opening on "Good Morning Arizona" Tuesday.

Chef Saul Velasquez demonstrated how the restaurant makes fresh tortillas daily with a wooden press.

Some specialties at Blanco Tacos + Tequila include chipotle shrimp, traditional carnitas tacos, and a unique version of blanco chicken made with cream, pepper, garlic and chicken that has been stewed and braised.

Blanco also offers more than 80 tequilas. Some of the varieties are very rare.

Guests can sit down at Blanco to enjoy a meal, but if they are in a hurry, they can walk up to the taco window for food to go.
