This is an interesting restaurant on a little hill overlooking the street and, of course, the forest. The furnishings are nothing fancy and clearly are intended to be that way, but there is a cozy, friendly atmosphere about the place that most will enjoy. The food that we ordered was the kind of Mexican Food that one typically finds in... More

We were passing through town and we have eaten here before so, we stopped in again this trip. We had a nice lunch with taco salad and chili rellenos. The service was friendly and the food came out quickly. Good food, clean place and nice staff. We have never been disappointed here.

We had dinner at Casa Blanca today. The green chile had a good bite and tasted authentic. The service was fast and the food was reasonably priced. The staff was friendly and the margaritas were strong :)

This place is awesome. The food is great. The drinks are great. The atmosphere is great, very commensurate with the locale. Everything from the salsa to the drink mixes are made fresh and in house. I am speechless about how good the food is.

We had green chile chicken enchiladas and chile rellenos, both delicious, but the chips and salsa and the flan were the hit for us. The flan was the authentic and not too sweet but creamy kind. I'd recommend it!

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.
