Not TexMex Fare

I was not overly impressed with my dinner choice of chicken Enchilads but the chips, salsa & corn tortillas were above average. The wait staff was not very attentive but functional. They also own the Old Road Restaurant in Mesclario NM (down Hwy 79 on the way to Alamogordo). I like the menu items... read more

Positive things first..... chips are light and crispy, salsa is tasty our group couldn't decide if it was too spicy or too sweet LOL. We asked for more though! Generous portions arrived quickly on warm plates and we all took remaining food in take out containers. Price is a bit high but in our case it was a 2-meal deal... More

This place is OK, but probably not a standout restaurant. The chips and salsa starters are pretty good. The orders of chicken quesadillas and the special enchiladas were well received. My beef chile rellenos could have been a little spicier and the red chile with pork soup could have been toned down a little. All in all, the group enjoyed... More

We had heard good things about this place but had a disappointing experience. Food was just not that good and with a large group, we ordered a variety items.

The food here is very good. Generous portions are given that is for sure! The place has a great feel and a friendly staff. Try the Green Chili salsa and the flan!

After a terrible expertise at El Camino we called ahead to see if Casa Blanca could accommodate us without reservations on Saturday night. They were able to get us in with a 20 minute wait. We were fed delicious margaritas beforehand so it was OK. Food was amazing and not from a can like El Camino. Will definitely be back... More

We drive over 150 miles just to get their Chili Rellenos. Beautiful view, great atmosphere. Staff was courteous and prompt.

We had been to the Casa Blanca several times a few years ago. Seems it was better then. Although the atmosphere was the same, something was not right with the food. It was ok, but the flavor was not all there. Enchiladas could be better if they would add sauce to the filling. Very dry. But the fajitas were better.... More
