Small yet very good and freshly made food. Staff very friendly and prompt. Right next to the Holiday Inn La Mesa and the highway.

“Very good!”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

Been here a couple of times and they are consistently excellent. Even items off the alacarte menu are huge and tasty. To top it off, it's walking distance from the two hotels nearby. The only downside is the popularity - it's a smaller place with a giant clientele, meaning sometimes it takes a little time to get your food. It's worth the wait though.

“Makes you feel like you are in Mexico !”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

La Casa Blanca in La Mesa California, is a hidden gem ! This small restaurant which only seats about 40 people is set up inside to make you feel like you are visiting in Puerto Vallarta, or Mazatlan Mexico. From it's Mexican tile floors, to the Red, White, and Green table clothes, this quaint restaurant has some of the best Authentic Mexican food we have ever tasted in the San Diego Area. And considering there is a Mexican restaurant on almost ever corner in San Diego, that's saying something ! They have a wide menu from Carne Asada, to Fish, to Fajitas, etc., etc. Everything is in large portions and delicious. On weekends they have a woman hand making real tortillas in front of you and delivering them to your table. They are wonderful ! Try their Happy Hour Margaritas, with the best chips and salsa around. They are Awesome ! The servers also have a great attitude, and are so friendly. From Oscar, to Lorena, to Herman, they all make you feel like family. If you want to feel what it is like in real Mexico while you are in the U.S., go to La Casa Blanca in La Mesa, for a real taste of Mexico !
They also have real home made Flan, Fried ice cream and other great desserts !

“Delicious Chili Verde”
Reviewed April 2, 2013 via mobile

We were staying in nearby El Cajon and stumbled on this restaurant. The homemade tortillas were a real treat. Service was great, but the real star was the chili verde. Yummmmmmy! It had a nice level of heat to it. I would definitely eat here again.
