I tried this place just after it had reopened as "Casa Blanca". I met the owner who was taking some time off from his other business - was very congenial and seemed very genuine to please his customers. I have returned 6 times or so and each visit is as good as the last. Sometimes the wait staff is not on its toes, but the food is Great...!!!

Honestly this resturant was way better when under Lopez managment. More traditional enviroment. Food was better and it was a more enjoyable expirence dinning there. Most of the workers are the same since it was Antonio's Hacienda, dont understand why they changed the name, but happy they did bc it's not what it used to be, big change. Looks more like an island now. And b4 the style was an hacienda, now its a place with bright colors. However it is the same delicious salsa as b4, wonder how the got the recipe?

We've been coming here since it was Antonio's back in the 80's! Always a good spot but took a not-so-good turn a couple of years ago. We just went back last week and were plesantly surprised. The menu changed with the new owners and the food is waaay tastier! Can't wait to try the margaritas again... MMMMMmmmmm...

This cute little family owned place has great food and service. There is a second location in La Mesa that doesn't have the bar but is cute too! Go any night to this location for a fun bar special, or my favorite, the $12.95 Sunday morning champagne brunch =)

Great place to eat! Why the change in name, though??? It had been "Antonio's Hacienda" for over 20 years. A shame. New management is constantly changing the nightly specials, but at least they've had the sense to keep the food and prices the same. Go for the margaritas - definitely the strongest in town!! Service gets worse as the crowds get larger, but oh well. Its still worth it, to me!
