Been eating here for many years. If we only had one night available it would be Casablanca . If the back patio is available....get it! Lots of menu options for everyone to choose from. Out group had mostly Mexican. This is Mexican! Not Tex-Mex! There is a difference folks.

Casa used be really good (1980's) but I have not had a decent meal there in years. Tried again this trip and while the old adobe building is great the food is just not good. At all. I just don't get the appeal of bad, bland food. How hard is it too make edible fajitas? A good red sauce? Service... More

The food here was good. Nothing super fancy, but I can't complain about the quality. Serving sizes were great and we both were plenty full after eating. Service was ok but not great. We ordered some extra tortillas and we never got them. The put them on our ticket but took them off when they realized we never received them.... More

The lunch combo is hard to beat. Where else can you go and get a Chile rellenos, enchilada , taco, rice and beans for $9. The chips and salsa is always fresh and the atmosphere is nice. Really a great place to eat!

My family and I ate here tonight. It was a weekday night and didn't seem very busy. We went at about 6pm. The hostess took a few minutes realizing we were there and asked us to wait for a minute while she finished with someone else. We asked for a table for 8 and were sat at a table in... More

Our dinner was delicious and the portion sizes were enormous- you might want to split a meal. We had the fried green chilies for an appetizer and they were amazing. We would recommend the stuffed sopapilla and green chili enchiladas. Our only complaint was the hostess was missing from her stand and we waited for about 15 minutes to even... More

I visited this place 8 years ago and I recently had the chance to revisit. The memory of this delicious concoction of fresh lime juice and sweetness of any margarita I had ever tasted was to my delight unchanged. This drink was what I wanted most after an adventure down Ski Apace Zip line and it hit the spot. The... More

We come to Ruidoso every July, and never miss a chance to eat at Casa Blanca. It's usually very busy in the evenings, but tends to thin out after 7:30 or so; we only had a 10 minute wait getting there at 7:30. The food is fantastic. Loved the fried green chile appetizer. We had a party of 6 and... More

There's one reason to go to Casa Blanca. The fried green chili's. Have a good cold drink and eat this basketful of wonderful. The rest of the menu is ok..... but the green chili's will bring you back time and time again.

Oh my, Oh my......great, good, better than expected. Good Patron margaritas. And our service was fantastic. Try the chili rellenos with the salsa verde. Everyone in our family loved it. A definite revisit. Also you have to try the deep fried green chili strips.

Thank CClifford505
