Casa Blanca has an easy atmosphere in great New Mexico Mex food. They serve an amazing green chili chicken enchalada special. It is am ample portion of three enchaladas. Very good with beer or a crisp cold white wine.

I was dining with a group of 6. The server was completely overwhelmed. I think she was the only one working at the time in the whole restaurant. It took a really long time to place our orders. We had margaritas, they were good. The food finally arrived, everyone ordered something different. All 6 of us were disappointed with the... More

This is a very popular place and the wait was very long on spring break. The food was better than average and the staff was attentive.

We liked the reviews on Trip Advisor, so we decided to have done local flavor. The Ultimate Margaritas were quite good but rather small. Waitress seemed bored with her job and wasn't very attentive when we wanted to order another round of adult beverages. Entrees were very good despite the sizzling Chix/Shrimp fajitas not being sizzling as advertised. Place was... More

Food was delicious with huge portions served. My daughter and I enjoyed dinner here after a full day of skiing. The place was packed, so we had about a 30 minute wait for a table, but I enjoyed a House Margarita from the bar. Wait and bar staff was friendly, and service was great.

Off of the main tourist and a more peaceful setting! Set up against the mountain! Traditional mexican decor with delicious food.. hit the spot after a day of hiking. Both my husband and myself enjoyed the enchiladas,... lots of cheese (maybe too much), but still delicious!

Amazing food! Has a variety of food and also for younger kids. Setting is beyond the amazing point. Close to ski resort and hotels! All on the same road.

Service a little slow maybe because it was spring break! I recommend the green sauce very good. Chips very fresh. Queso was very good.

We've been in town for couple of days and we were looking for some authentic food. Casa Blanca was on point. Small wait time but while you wait they offer you chips, hot sauce, tea or water well worth the wait. We had some margaritas which were awesome and reasonably price. Once seated our waitress was quick to get our... More
