Lunch at Casa Blanca was excellent authentic Mexican food. The pulled and shredded chicken in the mini sofaphia was a superb dish for a senior guy watching calories. Service by the manager was superb and she was friendly like serving family. W had a late lunch at 2:00 PM so only a few customers but it was filling up by... More

We've tried Casa Blanca a couple of times for lunch, but have come away a bit disappointed each time. The food is freshly prepared but has generally seemed bland to us both. We've tried both chicken and beef dishes and thought that both lacked the flavor that we've come to expect.

Casa Blanca is a local's favorite and has been for many years. Good portions, pretty good prices and it's all home made. That sanchez place down the street a ways does NOT serve homemade food. If you know true Mexican food, you can taste their food came from cans. Until you try this place, you're settling for a basic canned... More

This restaurant is in a house, pretty cool actually. The food was really good and we were quite surprised at the low prices. Most of all we enjoyed visiting with our waitress who is a local whose family has owned the restaurant for 40 years. Great dinner choice!

You feel like you're in someone's house. Good food, all the bottled beer you'd expect, but you anticipate your grandma to come around the corner. We've eaten there several times even if it's off the beaten path. It could be a lot better - maybe some music could help - it definitely needs something. Especially when there's more Mexican restaurants... More

Great enchiladas and sopapillas. For a small town with MANY Mexican restaurants, this is the place to go. Just remember your cash because they are cash only.

Make sure your bring cash or an in state check as they do not take credit cards. Their guacamole is yummy as is their green chili. I prefer their green chili over their red.

I have eaten here many times over the past 30 years and have enjoyed every meal. Be sure to try the chicken enchiladas with green or red chile. Chips and salsa are complimentary. It's located a half block of main in an older victorian house. Reasonable prices with great service.

The green chile is the best. The food is consistently good and reasonably priced. The wait staff is always friendly.
