Great place to get hotdogs and stop in Alemeda park for a picnic. After hotdogs and playing in the park you might also like to ride the train.

We stopped for dessert. Very tasty chocolate custard cone :-). They had a bigger menu than I anticipated with hot dogs and lunch food. We just had cones, but they were very good.

Great frozen custard treats, food items and flavored teas. Gets REALLY busy during the summer months. Some outdoor seating available ... wish they had more. Have always encountered friendly service.

If you are an ice cream lover, you will love Caliche's. This is true rich and creamy frozen custard, not thin ice cream or frozen yogurt. This is the best place in the area to get the delightful, freshly served frozen custard, with such a wealth of choices on the menu, it will take you 5 minutes just to decide... More

Not the place for people worried about weight gain 😄 The portions are large and so yummy that you will eat it all! Or at least try real hard. I recommend going in the evening when the neon is on....it just adds to the nostalgic vibe of the place.

What can I say, it's excellent frozen yogurt and the best in town. It's one of those places everyone hangs out in

We picked up two salted pecan caramel sundaes. This is the best ice cream in town. So rich and tasty! Root beer floats and rasberry tea also very good

Due to my attempt to lose weight,I've had to limit my intake of frozen custard. This is an excellent treat and should not be missed while in Alamogordo--even if you're on a diet!
