Great chips and hot sauce. The fried green chili strips are to die for! The combination plate has a little bit of everything - so delicious. Their red sauce is one of the best I've had. Wait staff is friendly and helpful.

I thoroughly enjoyed Casa Blanca! I had the cheese enchiladas and they were amazing. I also had 2 strawberry dacquiris and they were even more amazing. My husband had the fajitas and lets just say he came away stuffed to the gills!

I'd give it one star only because the waitress was so sweet. I ordered a cheese chilie relleno and when it came it was cold - not even room temperature - it was COLD! So we're the beans and rice. My husband's enchiladas were cold...More

Here in the heart of New Mexico, how can you serve bad Mexican food? Everything I ordered was bland and tasteless. How do you do that? Sauces (red and green both) were the right color, but no flavor. The sole exception - bacon wrapped shrimp...More

We love the Mexican food at Casa Blanca! The chips and salsa are great starters along with a delicious margarita. The green chilli chicken enchiladas are hard to resist! I also like the lunch chicken quesadilla! The service is always prompt and the food comes...More
