We enjoy eating outback in the covered enclosed patio. It is quieter - just need to swat at flies occasionally. Delicious guacamole! Good size servings. Chips were a bit greasy this trip, but still delicious. Food was good. Parking can be a pain. Scattered parking available behind the restaurant. We went late afternoon on a Friday and crowds were already there.

Ate here with my family. It's very large, and apparently pretty popular. The food was "decent" but nothing to write home about. I've had better, but I've also had worse. Server was polite and helpful. There was a bit of a wait when we went for dinner, so be prepared.

Bland. The food isn't bad. It's just not got any zing. The service is average at best. This place does alot of business so maybe it's just me. I've given it several chances and can't seem to get anything beyond plain. For the money give me Lucy's. Less expensive, tastier, and more authentic.

We visit Casa Blanca every year at some point during our annual summer trips to Ruidoso. We visited this week and were celebrating a family birthday. The service was the slowest that it has ever been. It took almost 30 min to receive our drinks from the bar- but the Pink Cadillacs were worth the wait. The green chicken enchiladas were fair.. Needed salt and more seasoning. My son had a burger and said it was the best thing he had ever eaten there. I think the quality of the food has deteriorated in the past few years, as has the service. The server was working very hard but it was evident that the place was understaffed- on the floor as well as in the kitchen and bar. Our next visit might involve drinks and appetizers instead of the "full meal deal".... No one wants to have a two hour lunch when there is shopping to be done !!

I have eaten here quite a few times over 20 years and it is always wonderful! Great food, great variety, great service (even placing their super-hot plates on a charger plate so you can handle them), reasonably priced, and great atmosphere. Be sure you save room for the always-perfect sopapillas with honey.
