Based on Tripadvisor reviews I visited Hi-D-Ho on March 24th, 2013 at 12:45 PM. It's on the main drag along White Sands. While most diners appear to do all of their eating in their autos and pick-ups I chose to eat inside where they have 3 diminutive booths. The interior is tiny. So much so that you couldn't swing a dead cat in there without hitting every interior wall. I was about to order their namesake 'Tiger' burger, priced at a hefty $7. The Tiger burger is a double patty cheeseburger drenched in hot salsa verde. In other words; A hot mess.
The problem was that the booth next to mine was occupied by two homeless gentlemen. While they appeared to be well behaved I detected an olfactory deficiency in their personal hygiene that convinced me to take my order outside for consumption. It turns out that the 'Tiger' burger's most notable quality is its name. At seven bucks it's hard to stomach. Staff of 2 young women and an older grill person were very pleasant. At least there was that.
I cannot imagine why this joint is rated number one in Alamogordo. As it stands; I won't be coming back.
