We had a party of seven, the wait was 45 minutes, so we headed down to the bar. The bar is a nice size, lots of tables, a fireplace, great bartenders, chips and salsa. Perfect way to pass 45 minutes. The food is delicious, the service is perfect and the drinks are yummy!! Perfect place to relax with family and/or... More

Perched hillside in this resort town, Casa Blanca doesn't blow diners away but it doesn't disappoint, either. In the mood for just plain good ol' Tex-Mex fare, you should find what you're looking for here. The atmosphere is fun but a little cramped. The service is adequate and the food is tasty. There's a bar downstairs that fits the bill.... More

This Mexican restaurant tries to make up for its poor quality of food with a large dining area and decent service. Beside the margaritas, there's not much here to enjoy.

We look forward to eating at Jorge's every time we're in the area. This trip we stayed near Casa Blanca so we tried it late afternoon Tuesday. Note that the first door you see is the bar; the restaurant is up the stairs. The bartender said she would serve us since it was slow, and pointed to the chips &... More

We were expecting New Mexico style Mexican food but it was really no different than Tex-Mex. The salsa was really good and the chips were thin and crispy. Worth the visit anyway.

We always go to Casa Blanca when we are in Ruidoso. Besides having very good food, the atmosphere is good, too. Good service. All in all, a good place to go.

We have eaten a couple of times here while spending the weekend in Ruidoso. The food is pretty unremarkable and the service is average.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2014

We have dined on Mexican food for years. One of the staples is a good margarita. One that is freshly blended from scratch, with just the right amount of mix and tequila. Casa Blanca hasn't apparently mastered that process, as their margarita's were awful. Beer would be the better choice here. Secondly, there is a great dish, usually "queso" which... More

We have been eating here on and off for 20 years and the food is better than average but not great. We didn't find that things have changed during this visit. Three in our group had the green chile chicken enchiladas and were very pleased. I ordered the combination plate and was not impressed. It seemed extremely salty. The chips... More

The food is good. You get plenty of yummy chip & salsa. I had the chile renos & she had the guacamole. The food was good. They charge for soapillas but the prices are fair esecially for a resort town.
