Raspas, kind of a Mexican version of Hawaiian shaved ice, are excellent. Store seems to change a lot as far as the merchandise carried. I've bought great Mexican imports there; sometimes nothing but the RASPAS interest me. I go out of my way to visit...More

Went by there yesterday and the sign on the door said "Closed" in Spanish. Further down the street we talked to a lady who told us she would be locating her tourist shop into the old Raspa location.

We stopped here to relax, talk to other tourists and taste some unusual flavors of sno-cones. We did not try the spicy offering, but we did cool off and enjoy the 'flavor' of the town.

The Raspa's/Snow cones aren't the best I've had, but they are good and get the job done. The store is nice and the employees were very friendly. My daughter loved her Raspa of course. Building is old and neat looking. We will certainly go again...More

We've been here before. It's a well-managed place located in a historic old Western store. The people behind the counter are friendly and competent. But somewhere, management got the idea that customers should pick a single flavor of ice cream, no matter how many scoops...More

There's not a lot to do in Alpine, but this place is one of the places you should visit while hear. Refreshing & yummy.

The ice cream got my attention. I looked at all the flavors. Thought about the best choice to make. The Raspas looked very good, but I only had so much room after the meal next door at El Patio. Very historical building that takes you...More
