Best service EVER...but no air conditioning?

Miss Paige was our server and she was awesome!!!!!! We rarely get good service and she was like a breath of fresh air!!!!!!!! The enchiladas and quesadillas were amazing!! However, it was very hot!!! There was zero air flow and we almost left!! I hope they have better air conditioning next time!

I used to live in New Mexico and wanted some real New Mexican style food and Casa Blanca did not disappoint with the green chili enchiladas, the posole was red and soupy but good and came with Texas toast instead of tortillas! My wife ordered quesadillas which came with green chili and they were outstanding. The Sopapilla Sunday was a... More

If you are in Ruidoso and want a taste of the area, this is the place. Green chicken enchiladas are a house specialty and highly recommended as well as the chile rellenos. The waitress warned us that the current pepper harvest was hot, but we all ordered the green sauce anyway and it was just right. Guacomole was good as... More

Went for dinner. Food was good even though the green chile chicken enchiladas were extremely spicy, almost to the point of not being edible. Wait staff was good and somewhat friendly but didn't go out of their way to please the customer! Extremely over priced for quantity of food received. Probably won't eat there again.

The waitstaff is superior! Our waiter was super friendly and did a great job of making sure we were taken care of. The margarita on the rocks is great and I highly recommend the stacked enchiladas or the fajitas. You can choose between red or green sauce and blue corn tortillas.

I had the green chile enchiladas and my husband had the fajitas. The enchiladas were AMAZING, best I have ever had in my life. He loved the flavor of the fajitas. Definitely a must when we visit Ruidoso again.

I get the cheese stuffed chile rellano with red sauce every time I visit Casa Blanca and it is always delicious and something I look forward to every trip. My husband has always enjoyed whatever he orders. We have always had fast, friendly service.

Went here on the recommendation of a friend. Good food and reasonably priced. I had the Chile Relleno combination. They were huge!

A little pricey, but Coconut Margaritas and anything with green chiles are awesome. Salsa was spicy and very tasty.

We used to enjoy eating here, but this place has really gone down hill. The prices are outrageous, the food is terrible, and the service is lacking.
