“Must stop here! ”
Reviewed 22 May 2014 via mobile

Not only is the custard amazing but the service was great! Super friendly and nice order out in less than a minute and the custard was to die for. Try the gizmo-salted. Or the sand box. Both were excellent.

“Lip Smacking Delicious”
Reviewed 23 March 2014

On our way home from dinner, we stopped here for desert. If not the best frozen custard we've ever had it was close. The variety of custard dishes was the largest I've ever seen. If my waist line could take it I would have tried several, but alas, I did the right thing and only had one serving.

“Absolute best”
Reviewed 5 March 2014 via mobile

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...

“Great frozen custard”
Reviewed 10 February 2014 via mobile

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. ..

“Vanilla”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

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.
