Best custard ever!!!

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...

I was concerned that this place was overpriced and that the custard was just so so from some of the reviews I read. But I was very pleased with my experience. I thought the price point was fair - comparable to Dairy Queen but the quality was much superior at Caliche's. I had the Gizmo sundae and it was rich... More

I've had frozen custard in a few places, and this was...ok. Nothing more. There were two flavor choices, chocolate and vanilla...but they couldn't do a combo of the two flavors for us? I thought their prices were VERY high, for the quality and quantity. In Alamogordo, there aren't a lot of choices, though, and it seems they know that!

Very good custard. There are a ton of toppings to choose from and the service is really fast. This place is totally worth stopping at for a good cool snack!

I love Caliche's! Does not matter if it is summer or winter, it is always good. My favorite is the Gizmo with salted pecans. The Gizmo has hot caramel and hot fudge. The Key Lime Cheesecake is also really good. Even just a cone with the custard all by itself is awesome. Service is always great! I highly recommend it... More
