The pizza was good, and the staff really made our day. They were so friendly and helpful with our children. The kids could watch them make the pizza dough and they drew on a small chalkboard. They went out of their way for us.
Pizza is delicious!

I was very impressed with this spot, a hidden place among all of Alamogordo. I've been wanting to try it out for a while but kinda forgot about it until a co-worker mentioned it today, so we all went. The service was very homely and welcoming. The staff was very caring (honestly best service I've had in all of Alamogordo). I was torn between several things on the menu but ended up getting the Guaker Rocker (which was very delicious!!!). I'll definitely be frequenting this establishment more often!!! Nice friendly staff and good food to choose from!!!
The best airport restaurant you'll ever find. Linda and Stephanie have been taking care of the air tanker community forever. If you want good, honest people & delicious, honest food, come and eat here.
I ordered the chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and corn. The bread roll was cooked perfectly and everything was all good. Except the chicken fried steak. The middle was not cooked but because this has never happened before I let it slide. Everything else was great and the desert Mississippi mudslide was great.

Caliche’s Frozen Custard

2251 N White Sands Blvd
Alamogordo, 88310
Reviews:
Yummy rocky road ! I highly recommend :)
Really satisfying on a hot (normal) day in NM. J and I visited twice! AMBIANCE: Its basically a drive through, with some benches outside if you want to sit. Your best bet if you visit during daylight hours is to park in a shaded area (they have a few spots on the right hand side) and consume with your windows down/doors open to let in the breeze. SERVICE: Super friendly. HS students(?) man the cashier stations, and are quick to give you suggestions/advice if you ask. FOOD: - Green chile sundae: Surprisingly good! I got it with pecans at the suggestion of the cashier, and the contrast of textures was great. The vanilla custard on its own was creamy and had the perfect amount of sweetness. I'd absolutely get this again. - Coke float: Standard. No complaints from J. - Rocky road sundae: Chocolate custard with marshmallow fluff and almonds mixed in. This was good, but really really sweet-- I could only eat about 2 spoonfuls before surrendering. I preferred the green chile sundae to this concoction. - Frito pie: Good, but the combination of TX style chile and fritos was way too salty. OVERALL: Really good value for satisfying snacks. If I ever find myself in the area, I'll be sure to hit up Caliche's.
I have never tried the food here, just the deliciousness that is their frozen custard. Man oh man, I sure miss their sundaes! I've never actually had frozen custard before until I tried Caliche's, so I had no idea what to expect.. but after trying other places afterwards, I'd say Caliche's is the best. It's been awhile since I visited.. which I'll have to remedy soon...but I highly recommend it!

What a great find. We were on our way from the New Mexico Museum of Space Travel to White Sands National Monument and wanted to quick lunch. The sandwich selection is extensive with many featuring local flavors. Try the green chili turkey melt. They also make 2-foot "family size" subs. You can save a little when you buy big. Pickles, pepperoncini and jalapenos are with the condiments. Take as many as you like.
This place has great food! I do not live in this town or state but whenever I visit I always leave full and happy. The only negative thing is some customers are somewhat judgmental. I have tattoos and piercings so among the people of Alamo I stand out haha But this of course has nothing to do with the restaurant. Great food, love this place.
great sandwich shop and very nice staff. I had BBQ chicken and my coworker had a hot pastrami and swiss. We were both happy. Good ingredients make a great meal. The breads are really good and the meats and cheese are high quality. There's not a lot of seating, so beat the rush!

Waffle & Pancake Shoppe

950 S White Sands Blvd
Alamogordo, 88310
Reviews:
Meh. I really don't know what the fuss is about. We came here for bkfast, at about 11am. (ok, so we slept in). We were one of two couples in the place, and the other ppl were just leaving. "Great!" I thought. "Lots of attention, food hot off the grill, not sitting under a heat lamp." Right? Nope. We (DH and I) both ordered Belgian waffles, a natural choice at a place called the Waffle and Pancake Shoppe. The waffles were definitely hand-made, and they looked REALLY good. But they were barely warm. The only "butter" available was soft margarine in those little bitty plastic cups with peel-back "lids". The waffles were so close to cold that the room-temperature margarine wouldn't melt on them. The waitress came back with some syrup; it was stone-cold, and it congealed with the margarine, looking pretty pathetic and unappetizing. Still, looks aren't everything. So I took a bite. The waffle was "ok", but JUST ok; the oh-so-ordinary taste did not make up for the coldness of it, or the cold syrup, or the unmelted margarine. To top it off, our waitress had to be hunted down and reminded to bring our orange juice--which was simply Minute Maid from a carton (I asked). Oh--and the coffee was fresh and hot, but mediocre tasting and not very strong: ordinary. I would be a lot more forgiving of a lukewarm waffle and forgotten OJ if the place were as bustling as other Yelp reviews led me to expect. But we were the ONLY customers in the place. As the clock approached noon, I expected the place to start filling up with a lunch crowd. But no; when we walked out the door, no one was left in there. The cook and two waitresses were standing cross-armed and idle behind the breakfast bar, and cheerfully thanked us and waved goodbye. I will say that my two eggs were cooked to perfection, and my DH's hash browns were fabulous. But I'm left wondering whether we're even talking about the same restaurant: cold food, airline-sized packs of margarine, reconstituted OJ... Huh? I wouldn't return unless i needed to be bored to tears.
Really great breakfast food. Often standing room only to wait for your seat but it is worth it. They do need to fix their ceiling. Very popular with the locals for a reason! Good Mexican food too...
We were greeted with a smile and a hearty 'good morning' from the owner, George. Seated straight away at about 8:15a on a Monday morning, we checked out the big menu. Pancakes, omelets, waffles, oh my! Super cheap prices. I took the server's recommendation and had the pecan pancakes and my husband ordered the 22nd century omelet. The atmosphere was so friendly, you'd think you were sharing breakfast with all your friends. I'd definitely recommend you eat local over the chains as far as breakfast goes.

Stella Vita

Reviews:
Went here last Friday for a nice lunch with my mother. The service was great, but the food was seriously lacking. The bread at the beginning of the meal was the best part. I had French onion soup to start, and it was below average. Very little cheese, and a few croutons floating around. For my main course I had the green chile chicken Alfredo. The green chiles were practically non existent. The Alfredo sauce had very little flavor, and the penne pasta was definitely over cooked. My entree was not hot when it was brought out. The chicken seemed to be a tad over seasoned. My mother had the linguini with tilapia. It was served hot, and the pasta was a nice al dente. The fish was seasoned far too much. There was also no salt or pepper on the tables, which is a huge turn off for me. I had a nice glass of Argentine Malbec, but the wine glass was so big my "glass" looked like a sample. I would say this place is about as good as a Chili's or Applebees, which isn't saying much. The ambiance is very nice; the dining room is very nicely appointed. Somewhat out of place in Alamogordo. I will give it another chance before I leave town and review again.
Truly great restaurant! I have been on several occasions. And, never once was I disappointed. The Steak Oscar was fantastic! The lunch prices are affordable!!! The only thing that could make this restaurant even bette would be daily or weekly chef's special. I love being surprised by things that aren't on the menu.
Great food and service! In Alamogordo, this is the BEST place for romantic evenings out. The soups, appetizers, and entrees are all delicious. My favorite is the Steak Oscar! Stella Vita is somewhat pricey, and is worth every penny! Don't miss it!

I was glad to see this place was open after we left White Sands late on evening. I was kind of disappointed in their limited offerings. I got an overpriced croissant sandwich and soda after learning that they don't make their smoothies fresh. All that equipment and they use prepackaged smoothies? The lady helping us was nice but did not seem entirely comfortable behind the counter. The seating area itself is open and comfortable. Local art adorns the walls which is always nice to see. The place was clean but overall just an OK experience.
For people who love good coffee and a amazing view of the city. This is the place for you. The employees are always so nice and welcoming. My boyfriend and I come here and just sit-- drink coffee and relax. Great chai lattes with a nice blend of spices :)
When I lived here, I would frequent this place quite often. It was definitely a local gem. Whenever we visit, we try to make a stop up here to enjoy a delicious beverage and the beautiful view. It's up in the mountains, so you have a great view of the city. Especially pretty if you go around sunset. They seem pretty innovative with their menu as well, they always have something new offered. Prices are great, and service is super friendly. Definitely a place worth checking out if you find yourself in these parts. :)

Nice little place. I didn't try the cupcakes but had the bubble tea. Perfectly made, and they don't charge extra (like other boba tea joints) for multiple flavors and tapioca, etc.
Absolutely charming!! On my first visit to NM my sister took my husband and I here, YUM!
Amazing food. Great Cupcakes. We had the panini and the greek salad and i will definitely be back for both

Best Chinese food in Alamogordo! I love how friendly the wait staff are, they welcome you with a smile and positive attitude. The food was absolutely delicious and extremely fresh. I personally recommend the following dishes, sesame chicken, shrimp with coco sauce, orange chicken, mei fun noodles ( hope I spelled that right) , & low mein noodles. They were my faves, but like I said everything was good, and the place was kept very clean. We'll be back for sure.
This is one out of only four places to eat in the White Sands Mall. The food here is pretty decent and there is a good sized buffet to eat from. There is enough seating in Smiley's as well as in the mall. The staff here is friendly too.
Love Smiley's...Food is always fresh and the place is kept very clean...Not a lot of room to eat inside but plenty of tables to eat at just outside in the Mall...Lots of choices to pick from...

Hi-D-Ho Drive In

414 S White Sands Blvd
Alamogordo, 88310
Reviews:
I had not been here in YEARS...after having grown up a bit in Alamogordo. I remember going here often when my dad ran the local video store. YEARS ago. Was still damn tasty...REAL green chile and crispy fries. Just like I remembered it!
We decided to try the Hi-D-Ho on a Friday night. It was about 8:30 & they were still open. A group was eating in the outdoor seating area & another car had pulled up & was ordering. The carhop came by shortly after we arrived & was friendly. Provided menus & left us alone to decide. She returned promptly & provided answers to our questions. So good so far. Then things started to slip. Our drinks arrived after a while, but the food was no where in site. One of our party went in to pay so when we got our food we could take it & head to our hotel for the night. The food finally arrived and we made haste for our hotel 1 mile down the main road. When we proceeded to eat at the hotel no more than 5 minutes after leaving the restaurant our burgers & fries were cold. We thought it had taken too long for our food to come out & apparently we had. Who knows how long the food sat there at the restaurant before the carhop brought it out. Not like they were that busy. The burgers were tasty, but would have been a lot better if got. The fries looked like they would have been good if they were hot, but cold they were not. 2 stars since the visit started nice, otherwise a 1 star for the close.
The old school drive-in is a classic piece of Americana, and it made me feel good inside to know that it existed here as one of the most popular places in the city. The burger made me feel good too - 1/3 pound of well-done meat, nice sear, and plenty of green chiles kept things simple but unique to this part of the country, and made it easy to see why the phone's constantly ringing off the hook with takeout orders.
