Calling Casa Bianca in Eagle Rock

So after many weekends (Fri and Sat) of constant busy signals when calling Casa Bianca we finally asked about it at the restaurant. The asnwer is... they take their phone off of the hook they get busy. Nice. Now I can stop wearing out my redial.

  1. I think off the hook is better than not answering. At least you know they are open. I hate when I call phillips BBQ and they just don't answer.

    1. Casa Bianca has got to be the worst restaurant ever...just ask any of the throngs of people waiting to get in. No parking, rude service, long waits, too noisy, cash only. Damn their eggplant parmagiana and pizza! If the food wasn't so good it would have been turned into a dry cleaners long ago.

      1. That's lame...makes me not want to eat/order from there ever again even tho they have yummy pizza.

        1. Recommendation: order pizza by phone on weekdays and take it out. Skip the pasta dishes, pizza is great.

          1. Casa Bianca has been the only pizza for me, for about five or six years now. Sometimes I eat in, but more often than not, we bring it back home.

            We've never had a problem with rude service. I'm sympathetic to the restaurant's concerns. Its a small business, family run. The kitchen can provide a finite amount of product, the patrons in the restaurant have the priority.

            Which is worse? Taking the phone off the hook when the kitchen is at capacity, or telling someone on the phone the wait for a pizza is two hours?

              But it does take two hours, right? We ended up driving there and placing our order and they were 45 min off of the one hour time they told us for pick-up.

              But it is crack and I am its crackhead.
