Great service, great food!

Fried green chile strips will make you want to go back to this place! Green chiles rule here. Green chile chicken enchiladas hearty & generous. Chips & salsa brought quickly & they're so light & salted well! Combo platters big! Lots of cheese! The elderly may have trouble walking in parking lot, so... read more

I know that Casa Blanca has been around for many years, and I have eaten there hundreds of times. But actually, the food is just okay. It's not bad, but it isn't amazing either. The service is friendly and the atmosphere is comfortable. It's not my favorite restaurant in Ruidoso, but I'll still go there with my family and enjoy... More

I really wanted to like Casa Blanca.....but no. Didn't happen. First, I got really grossed out by the filthy air conditioner vent in the waiting area. My cousin said, "Hey, do you watch Restaurant Impossible?" "Yes," I said. He told me to look up at the ceiling, and the vent was a nightmare. The room we were seated in was... More

Delicious food, great service, beautiful surroundings. Something for everyone, and the best green chili sauce. Our server took great care of 4 hungry, tired travelers. Great margaritas too! Make the first night of our stay memorable.
