During a recent weekend in Ruidoso was had dinner at Casa Blanca on the recommendation of local friends. I had the Casa Combo which was a cheese enchilada, a beef enchilada, a chile relleno and a beef taco, with beans and rice. My wife had sizzling chicken fajitas. We liked their chips and salsa very much – the salsa is good but not too hot. We also ordered guacamole, which was good if a little bland. I thought their beef taco was among the best I have had in any New Mexican restaurant. It is somewhat rustic inside and part of the restaurant is open air, at least in good weather. As it is built on a hill, it requires a walk up two flights of stairs to get to the restaurant; there is a bar on the lower level with an outdoor patio adjacent. Service was excellent and the food came out promptly. We really liked this place. I look forward to trying it again when next in Ruidoso.

NM food with local twist. Huevos Rancheros were top notch. Great tortilla soup, salsa and wonderful thin crisp chips.

Lynn and I and friends recently had our final Ruidoso dinner at Casa Blanca. This is a large restaurant that is very much in the Spanish tradition..washed white building with wood interiors. Our server, Jamie was very good and quite sociable as we have found many servers in New Mexico to have been. Lynn wanted a Chile Relleno and ordered one as an appetizer. She thought that the relleno perfect with a very light breading. We also ordered beef fajitas. There was lots of everything, Jalapeño, cheese, peppers and flour tortillas which came out piping hot. For those with disabilities, there are many steps to this restaurant. I believe that there is also an upstairs exit that might have a ramp, but we did not try it. There is also a bar on the ground floor. We really enjoyed this restaurant and would definitely return.

Had dinner here one evening while visiting Ruidoso. The food was good, the place had a nice, casual vibe, and the wait staff and management were terrific. I ordered the burrito plate with an extra taco--just the right amount of food after a day of strenuous outdoor activity.
