Restaurant details
Reviewed March 5, 2014

After living in Las Cruces, I miss this place the most. Every time I visit LC, going to Caliche's (formerly Scoopy's) is a mandatory stop. I get a U Name It sundae with strawberries, caramel and unsalted pecans. So yummy...

Frozen custard just like Ted Drewes in St.Louis! Except with the addition of fresh salted Las Cruces pecans and caramel sauce....yum.... doesn't get any fresher or better than this. ..

I've never understood all the fuss about this place. Maybe it's because there really aren't any other 'ice cream' shops in town?

They only serve Vanilla. You can get that Vanilla just about any way you want it - sundaes, floats, shakes, cones. But, again only Vanilla.

All the fuss for Vanilla? Seriously?

Probably a fun place to stop w/ kids. They do have 'Poochie Cones" for dogs. So, maybe take the whole family and enjoy a bit of roadside nostalgia - remembering days when you could casually pull into a drive-in roadside Ice Cream Shoppe and get anything you wanted - in Vanilla.

Big Plus for the Poochie Cones and simplicity of a local business.

Just wish they had something besides... yeah Vanilla.

After experiencing some other bad food choices in Las Cruces, Caliche's was a welcome surprise. Can't go wrong with some hot dogs and ice cream.

Every visit I have made to Caliches has been at worst a good visit. They are consistently speedy an accurate as well as friendly. Their custard is very tasty. My family loves this place.
