If you like custard or simply have never had it, this is the place to go. First timers, you will not regret it. Even just a single cup with vanilla will satisfy your taste buds.

I grew up on custard, and it is very hard to find. I am spending one night in Las Cruces, and the girl at the hotel suggested Caliches when I asked about ice cream. They are definitely a huge upgrade from dairy queen, and have all kinds of choices of milkshakes and toppings. Me, I was happy to have pumpkin... More

The list of caliches and sundaes is dazzling. Finally settled on a Gizmo with chocolate custard(carmel and salted pecans with a cherry). Very decadent. Good thing they are not cheap or I would have gone back for more. A very nice touch is the free poochie cone with a purchase. Our Golden Retriever really enjoyed it. Have to eat in... More

I know they have many other items besides the root beer float, but I love them so much, I have yet to try anything else. It brings back childhood memories, and tastes as good or better than anything I remember. The price is just as amazing, 99 cents for a regular, or $1.98 for a large. What a bargain. Fabulous!

...for a 50's style drive in. Broad menu. Appears popular with locals. I prefer Sonic. No real eating area--except for a wall.

This is THE PLACE for cool, yummy and rich frozen custard! Huge menu to select from. Fast service! No inside seating and very limited outside seating.

I love the croissant turkey sandwich they have here. They also have a huge selection of hot dogs. The custard is what they are famous for and great after a hot day. Build your own sundaes or shakes. The strawberry short cake was amazing, the cake was served warm!
