Pretty good

We had low expectations when we arrived only because who would think there could be good mexican food in such a small town. But we enjoyed it very much! Only downside was the service was a little slow, but we were in no rush.

my favorite food here has always been the pork tamales. lately the outer corn wrap has been a bit mushy and the overall dish with the green chili on top has been lacking in the flavors it use to bring. the chicken enchiladas were good. the salsa with chips has a piquant flavor but the texture would be better with...

I've been here twice. Once when a local brought me, and a second time while travelling through Leadville. Both time the food was very good. Seems like this place gets a lot of local traffic along with visitors. I recommend it while you're in Leadville.

Decent Tex-Mex food, some Mexican beers, large portions, good service, family-friendly, clean brightly lit dining area with cheery artwork on walls (see photos). Enchiladas were very good. Chile rellenos were different than what I was used to, but tasty. Disappointed they didn't have posole during the couple of days we were there, as they make either menudo or posole (but... More

Traveled CO route 24 from Minturn, a scenic short drive over the 10th Mountain Division Memorial Highway, to Leadville. Lunch at Casa Blanca was less than 10 bucks and the food was great! The place was filled with locals, always a good sign. Waitress was knowledgeable about the menu and very attentive. I've eaten at Casa Blanca many times over... More

Reading through reviews, here are some corrections: there is no pool table, they cook 99% of food from scratch, and they don't charge for water. This locals' favorite serves authentic Colorado valley/New Mexico style Mexican food, from recipes handed down from the owner's mother and grandmother. Everyone knows that Mexican food varies regionally in our country, so don't expect Tex-mex,... More

We love their food. The seating is very casual and the food is authentic and absolutely wonderful! Hidden off the main street, tucked away in the historic district; don't miss it.

Our family visited this restaurant and was shocked to find such rude service. The owner seems to not really care like she runs a monopoly or something. The food is bland, gross, and overpriced. Dont make the mistake we did!

Good food, super friendly servers. The restaurant was overwhelmed by the amount of people in town, though the servers were friendly and a bit apologetic about the slow service. The food is good enough and the restaurant accommodated us with our high needs separate checks, tracking kids down who were part of one's bill but sitting elsewhere, etc. Highly recommended....

The big dinner plate actually takes two plates to hold all the food and is my favorite. The chicken enchilada plate is wonderful, too. Every time if drive from Utah to Leadville, I'm not happy unless I get to eat here. Not many tourists, but the locals all know this place.
