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.

This is a great, quick stop if you want some frozen custard on a hot day. I had a Diet Coke float and was not disappointed.

Stayed across the street at the cosmic confines of the Satellite Inn as part of our Big 2015 Road Trip, and the purple neon of Caliche's beckoned to us from across US 54 & 70. The hot dogs and chili dogs are very good, and the frozen custard first-rate. Spotlessly clean and fast service, too! As connoisseurs of custard stands... More

Caliche's delivers just what it says it will - great sundaes, root beer floats and a basic hotdog that you can dress up a hundred different ways.

Delicious frozen custard. So many choices to add to the custard. Delicious and refreshing. One of the best places in town to enjoy a nice dessert, or cool drink.

We stopped here in the evening for a late quick dinner, and just ended up getting a bunch of hot dogs. We weren't expecting too much since it's primarily a frozen custard place, but the dogs were great and they had a huge variety. The atmosphere was great. It had such a fun vibe. The guy who took our order... More

My husband & I have been here several times. The ice cream selection is good. The Texas hot dogs are great. This place is a little pricey.

I took my family there on a Sunday afternoon. we each ordered custard and were impressed by the speed accuracy and taste of it all. I recommend the green chili Sundae. I know it sounds gross but trust me you'll like it!!

Not to bad actually. Have not eaten food here but custard is pretty darn good. No ice cream or anything like but lots of variety for you toppings and mixes. About only option in town for this but it is good.
