Nice little stop for custard and hotdogs

The custard was simply amazing, some of the best I have ever had. The Nathan hotdogs were delicious and the prices were good. Also, I like the small town this place is located in. It was very nice!

Absolutely delicious food and custard. A visit to Alamogordo is not complete without a visit to this little charmer. The service is friendly and fast, and the employees are eager to make your visit pleasant. There is no question too stupid!

This place is delicious. Good price for the amount of custard you get. Even better than Dairy Queen. They also sell hot dogs.

Excellent frozen custard at this no-frills drivethru and walkup joint. These were just like Dairy Queen's Blizzards -- except that the base custard was tastier. We had some of the Nathan's hotdogs, too, which come with a wide variety of choices for toppings.

They have a great hot dog special. Two hot dogs and a large drink for $5.00. These are not wimpy hot dogs. These are large Nathan's hot dogs and they have different toppings available. Of course we always get the frozen custard too to take home to eat. In is not an eat-in place. Great custard and many choices for... More

Although they do some food here its obvious the real star is their Frozen Custard. My wife and I shared a few scoops of their vanilla and chocolate. It was cold and creamy and the flavor was great.

We stopped by here after sizzling in the heat at White Sands National Park. The prices seemed a bit high, but they give you a very generous serving of frozen custard with a variety of choices for toppings. They only complaint I have is if you come during they day, they only have outdoor seating with a bit of shade... More

Frozen custard is so smooth and rich. Add a topping for a great treat. We were wanting to get a blizzard at Dairy Queen but there are none in Alamogordo and we tried this and were completely satisfied.
