When I was first turned on to frozen custard, when I moved here in 2013, I was skeptical. I couldn't wrap my head around custard, which I thought was egg-y, being frozen. I was SO wrong! Yates like uber-creamy soft-serve ice cream ... It's EXCELLENT!!!

This is good custard but way overpriced! If you,take your family of 5 you will pay at least $40 on your food. Really the only icecream place in town now

This place always seems to be busy. In fact, there is usually a line outside. There is outside seating, but none inside. There is also a drive-through. They serve some delicious sandwiches as well. The custard was delicious.

Buttery, creamy, sweet....absolutely perfect! Although I'm a chocolate lover, I order the vanilla because it's pure heaven. A bit difficult deciphering the extensive menu, but I never get that far anyway.

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....
