We were told it was 10 min wait to get in, however it was over 30mins before we were seated. We ordered chips and queso which was good. Our meals were okay. I had the green chile chicken enchiladas and my boyfriend had the combo plate. Overall the experience was okay.

Tried to call phone was always busy as if someone toke it off the hook. Bar staff rude, out of hot sauce in bar no one seemed to care. Food was good and reasonably priced.

Casa Blanca was pretty decent Mexican food--In Houston, we have quite a number of really good ones, so it may not be quite fair to them. However, we had good service and enjoyed ourselves while there.

Cute little place, good chips and salsa, nice and spicy. Very good margaritas, we both had red chile enchiladas, a little flour you on the red chile but good.

This is a great food. They have a full bar, patio area and can seat large groups. Be sure and watch for the cat that lives off the patio, he's consider a local and loves a treat!!

This is someone's Southwest adobe style house, mansion turned restaurant. Interesting set up and beautiful set on a forest hill. The food was good. A bit more expensive than I'd like for the amount of food received. The wait staff we had was adequate but left a bit to be desired. Could, of course, been a bad day for her... More

Amazing food! Amazing staff! And the sopa pillas are warm and toasty...they definitely go hand in hand with this weather! Our waiter, Jack, definitely made us feel at home! We'll definitely be back!

Great mexican food! I recommend the green chile strips! This restaurant is in an old house..very cozy. There's a quaint bar downstairs and they give chips and salsa while you wait.
