I am so sad that this isn't a chain that's in my home town! The spicy mango iced tea was amazing. It had crushed ice and big chunks of mango. The heat was perfect-couldn't taste it up front, but it was there. I also had the green chili sundae. That was more of a novelty and a little strange. The... More

Dairy Queen back! This place is too expensive for frozen yogurt which isn't that great. If want you want ice cream go to McDonalds and grab a cone.

We stopped here twice during our 4 day stay near Alamogordo. The portions are HUGE, the kids working there are so polite and courteous and of course, it was delicious. We had really restrain ourselves from going a third time!

If you like ice cream, you have yet to meet custard. When you do, you may not want to return to ice cream.

I remember frozen custard from my childhood ... it was my father's absolute favorite. I hadn't had any for over 50 years, so after dinner, I stopped by Caliche's out of curiosity as much as out of hunger. The first night, being a little cautious, I had a two-dip vanilla cone. I was offered another 2-dips for only 2 cents... More

I stopped in here after a coworker wouldn't shut up about the place That was almost 3 years ago and I am still a customer. It's an old fashion drive up where you order at the window and wait on your order. Usually a bright happy smiling teen with take your order and scurry away to create your frozen treat.... More

We stopped in for dessert and were not disappointed. They made my wife an oreo shake that is not on the menu and I got the apple alamode or whatever. Both were quite tasty and we will be back for the 2 for 1 special!

Popped in yesterday after reading the reviews for Caliche's, it was SO tasty! I had a sundae (strawberry, pecan and banana). I can see why the reviews are so good - tasty, great selection and very good service! Well worth popping in if passing through Alamogordo as easy to access on the main road or, like we did, pop in...

This is probably the biggest thing I miss from living in Alamogordo. Nothing beats grabbing frozen custard on a hot New Mexico evening. The combinations were limitless and the staff was always friendly. If I'm ever back that way, you can count on me visiting again.
