Good old fashion desserts in the desert

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.

Reasonable prices and just sooo good! I love customizing my caliche. I usually get vanilla with cookie dough and peanut butter cups :-) Their hot dogs are also surprisingly good, but 9.5 times out of 10 we just go for ice cream. I do wish they had a smaller size. They only have regular and large size, but the regular... More

I'd been craving frozen yogurt for over a week, and custard would certainly be an acceptable substitute (on vacation, can't stick to usual light option standards!). Following T.A. advice, we found Caliche's. Being New Yorkers, we aren't used to wasting gas waiting in a drive-through line, but ultimately we turned off the car and sat patiently. Worth the wait!

Today was our first time here, just a quick stop on the way to get the kids from school. I wasn't sure what to order so I went for the Rocky Road Caliche, the cashier was very helpful and said this is her favorite... ummmm can you say Yum!?!?! Mom got a hot fudge sundae and thought it was pretty... More

I've only had Caliche's in Las Cruces, and was pleased to see that there's one here in Alamogordo too! I am not an expert in types of ice cream, but this is great stuff...
