By far my favorite place to get dessert. The quality of custard is far superior to that of anything else in town. One of these days I will be brave enough to do the custard challenge. 6 waffles, six scoops of custard and 6 toppings. The calendar of flavors is awesome to see posted on Facebook to know when they... More

Ok wait. I didn't know about this until my second year at UNM which is a tragedy. Chillz is the best name for this place- the owner is literally the most chill person ever. The flavors are delicious and the custard in general is just to die for. I drag friends here constantly. I plan around the flavors during the... More

We were specifically looking for a custard shop, this was win/win because their flavor of the day was thin mints which is my husband's favorite. Staff was friendly and the custard was great!

We found this place by accident in search of a frozen yogurt location. I'm glad we stopped in. The service was friendly and oh my gosh, I had never eaten at this place (I'm very disciplined regarding my diet) ....throwing caution to the wind, I splurged on a turtle sundae and man was it worth it!!!! I will most definitely... More

Nothing says more than that first taste and... I seriously wanted to jump into vat! The custard is so rich creamy and velvety smooth. It was AMAZING! and I can say enough for the toppings. Genuine good stuff. Organic raspberry sauce that I could eat by itself. Thick chocolate sauce. And not the cheap plastic gummy bears either! I was... More

This is a little custard place right across the street from the University. Treats are good but only like 5 small tables here. Prices were a bit high too....

Wanted to get a nice cream after a hot morning sight seeing and found Chillz as a local establishment on Central Ave (old Rt 66) opposite the Univ of NM campus. Fairly limited flaor selection of their ice cream custards but an amazing array of toppings. Had the chocolate which was good but I have had richer if you are... More

We asked a local where we could get some good ice cream and they steered us to Chillz. Young owner operator who was very informative (about custard, which he makes 3x a day) and generally cool. Kids had cups (chocolate with marshmallows) and wife and I split banana sundae. All delicious.
