Each and every time I visit Alamogordo, a visit to Caliche's is a mandatory stop. Huge variety of great frozen custard flavors to choose from.

You can pretty much get anything you can think of when it comes to custard... shakes, sundaes, and caliche. Excellent super fast service and great prices

What's not to love? Great custard, Speedy service, well organized. Would be 5 stars except toppings/mix ins are a tad too sweet for our likings.

I got fantastic service here the staff were really friendly. This is hardly health food however each order is put together by hand and tastes so good. Be aware this is a walk-up/driver thru with some outside seating and no tables

Stopped by on a Saturday evening to satisfy the need of a quick meal. Found that this resturant serves a large selection of frozen custard and a small selection of food limited to various hot dogs. That was actually fine with us and I ordered one of the hot dogs and a root beer float. The price was fare and... More

This was rated the # 1 "restaurant" in Alamogordo, NM, but it is really an "ice cream" stand with hot dogs and a few other food items. The cones are very good and the "Caliche", a special whipped milkshake concoction that you add many different flavors to. We added pineapple to the vanilla frozen custard and it was very good....

Late afternoon stop at Caliche's did not disappoint. Great menu selection, appeared to be a local hot spot. We got the Gizmo, Apple Pie ala Moore, Fudge Brownie Bliss and the Mint De Caliche. All were amazing, if you're in the Las Cruces area Caliche's is a must try!

We needed a cool break on a hot (but beautiful) drive from Tucson to northeast NM, and Caliche's was exactly the right choice. First rate frozen custard, vanilla or chocolate or a little of each. We didn't have sundaes or mix-ins, we just had 2 scoops of chocolate and one of vanilla and loved it. Creamy and tasty and oh... More

Caliche's is absolutely the best custard you can get west of Wisconsin. Their sundaes are delicious as are their milkshakes thick and creamy. Very highly recommended.
