Can't get better than Caliche's

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

It was a slow Sunday and after a nice dinner the wife and I decided to get something sweet from Caliche's. I got the Gizmo and my wife got the fudge brownie... Both were delivered very quickly and ate just as fast. Caliche's participates with the local schools with a coupon card. It's basicly buy one get one of equal... More

Awesome place to get Frozen custard. Everything is amazing and service is fantastic as well. They even give poochie cones to furry babies. My favorite is the Fudge Brownie Bliss. Vanilla custard with chunks of brownies and Hot fudge poured over top melting the vanilla custard. It just doesn't get any better than that. They have hot dogs too!! Drive... More

i had never heard of this place before I went through the drive though because they advertised 2 hot dogs for and a drink for 5 dollars. I found it to be pretty good so went back several times. This seems to be a small chain. Just around this area I think they provide pretty good service and value. You... More

We enjoyed two more treats that left us satisfied: - Oreo cookie shake that got devoured by my wife sooner than I could get a taste - Rocky Road, a new one for me,with lots of nuts at the bottom, soft, and flavorful.

A great place for ice cream. They also have hot dogs and sandwiches. They have no indoor seating, so a good day is a must.
