Great custard. Too bad it involves so many calories. The kids are quick and patient. They give good service. My favorite is the Gizmo.

I've eaten a lot of custard in my time but Caliche's is the best, hands down! If you're looking for a great place for lunch, dinner or a snack, Caliche's is the place!

Caliches is consistently fantastic. Great custard (I get raspberry with chocolate chips), great hot dogs and chili dogs, and try a fruit tea on a hot summer day. Perfection.

No matter what you get, you won't be disappointed. Windy City dog and Super dog are two of the best on the menu and you can't beat the price. I get a cheesecake and brownie caliche if I'm not in the mood for apple pie a la mode.

We buy a discount card every year to support the local high school football team. With this in mind, BOGO, is a great deal on some excellent frozen custard drinks, and desserts. We visit at least monthly, more during the hot weather we get here in Alamogordo. Can't be disappointed here. All good.

Really yummy frozen custard. I ordered the strawberry cheesecake sundae and it had just the right amount of additional ingredients mixed in to taste the thick custard. We also ordered to Nathan's hot dogs and the buns were actually quite tasty along with the beef hot dog. All in all, this tasted better than the bland Mexican food we ordered... More

We stopped here after hiking in White Sands. Half of us ordered the (2) hot dogs meal deal and the other half ordered frozen custard. Everything hit the spot. Fast, friendly servers, and fair prices.

Place to get frozen custard and hot dogs. We got their special 2 Nathan's hot dogs and 1 drink for $5, us a regular sundae to share. This is a walk-up or drive-up place. There are a few benches one side. Luckily, some were in the shade.
