I couldn't order anything because the place was filthy! Everything was grubby.....Tables, counters, glass....I can't imagine what the cooking area looked like!

Went here with the kiddos after a sunny day on the Pecos River. While they had a very large selection of ice creams, and their burgers looked amazing, the whole place needed a good cleaning. There was also a funky smell that was quite foul. The kids and I ate our ice creams in the heat rather than be in... More

This was a great place to go after a day at the caverns and dinner at Chili's. The ladies working behind the counter were friendly and fast. The Ice Cream was great. It was clean here too. The menu lists breakfast items too. It looks like they open at 6am. Nice place.

They have a huge selection of ice cream flavors. You can go through the drive through, dine inside or outside.

This place was great for dessert after dinner. We stopped at another ice cream place but they were out of 99% of their ice creams. Kaleidoscoops had a really good selection, good prices, and good sized scoops.

This place has a lot of great flavors to choose from. The service is great, especially when all six of us walk in. I love the name, too, it is fun to say.

Ice Cream was very good. My husband said his hot fudge sundae was very good and unfortunately i chose a flavor that I wasn't crazy about. I love Moose Tracks, however, this was Extreme Moose Tracks and it was bitter dark chocolate (and I like dark chocolate) and just not to my liking. Unfortunately good ice cream prices are not...

After a long drive from Northern NM, Kaliedoscoops was a smart stop. The ice cream was good, the selection was great, and the service was even better! I would definitely recommend a stop if your group is ready for a treat. Thank you Kaliedoscoops. :)

We went for an evening snack of ice cream. They had a lot of flavors, but not the usual types of Blue Bell Ice Cream. The service was fast but my husband and daughter's milkshakes were poorly mixed. One was too thick to drink and the other was WAY too thin. The price was a little high, but not rediculous.... More

Hot weather + Sweet tooth = Ice Cream! My hot fudge sundae was the perfect combination, including whipped cream and a cherry on top at no extra charge. Did I mention the hot fudge was actually hot and applied with a ladle, not a squirt bottle? Ice Cream done right!
