Gross, ugh, ew. The food is bland, except for the old, grease taste that shines though. The food is canned and is 'cooked' under a salamander. Save your money and go to taco bell.

The food was bland. Even the margarita was bland! No flavor to be found. Our server was very nice, but sooooooo slow! Will never go back.

This is New Mexico where you expect to find Mexican food with some flavor and spice. Not at Casa Blanca. Place was crowded and a 20 minute wait so we expected something good.

First started going when moving to Ruidoso in 09. Then the food and service was great. THen in the past few months we have went and all six times we just got up and left because we couldnt get anyone to wait on our table. If they dont do something fast they will close down soon.

Have eaten here about 5 times each year for more than 20 years. Over the past few years there has been a steady decline in both the food quality and service, although I believe it is now at an all time LOW!!. Saturday was my last visit. The food was absolutely horrible. Of the four different entrees ordered at our... More
