Frozen Mexican style paletas made with real fruit and organic cane sugar create an experience unlike the frozen treats you find in a box at the store. You won’t find high fructose corn syrup here, but you will discover Grandma Alvarez’ horchata and limeade recipes, as well as exotic paleta creations like guanabana, mimosa and, our favorite, avocado.

sells all kinds of freshly made cold treats like mango and hot-cold-sweet-salty-sour chile paletas (popsicles), strawberries with cream and nonalcoholic piña coladas. Of course, you can still satisfy your sweet tooth at the original La Michoancana, which is just south of Isleta and Rio Bravo. Either way, it’s worth the drive.

Though the phrase "water ice" somehow doesn’t sound very appealing, Pop Pop’s frozen treats are divine slushy mixtures somewhere between sorbet and a Slurpee. In fact, we think Pop Pop’s water ices are the most refreshing of the bunch we’ve tried. Sure, the flavors taste kind of fake. But so do Slurpees and who can get enough of those? If you’re a freak for fair food, be sure to check out the cotton candy-flavored ice. It’s got the exact same flavor only not overpoweringly sweet. It’s shockingly good.

There may be times in your life when chocolate seems like your only friend. But look at what a good friend chocolate has been. It covers pretzels for you. It makes truffles for you. And you never have to wonder if it really loves you, because it always does. Floor-to-ceiling shelves boast gift baskets and bags, chocolate sculptures and molded items, giant "kisses" and sugar-free assortments. A chilled candy case shimmers with an assortment of chocolate truffles, creams and caramels sold by the piece. The counter is heaped with our favorite items, mostly chocolate poured over salty, crunchy things like pretzels, popcorn, nuts and cookies. Also, look for chocolate-covered strawberries and Taos Cow ice cream in eight flavors. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Come chill in Chill’N where they feature hand-crafted ice cream and artisan treats individually frozen for each customer with liquid nitrogen. Conveniently located in Green Jeans Farmery where you can also grab a bite or a beer, this unique dessert shop will knock your socks off with their organic frozen treats. Try the sea salt caramel or toasted coconut. (Alibi Staff, June 6, 2016)

This retro-style ice cream shop is super kid-friendly with spill-indifferent concrete floors and tons of nostalgic fun for everyone. Kids are encouraged to adorn their ice cream with the help of "topping tokens," which they can pump into low-set gumball machines filled with fixings like crushed Oreos, Animal Crackers and Fruity Pebbles. ISIC also serves up shakes, splits and other specialty treats to order, and most are between $1 and $5. Cheap! (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Keva Juice won Best Smoothies on our Readers’ Choice Restaurant Poll every time we ran the category. Despite its corporate veneer, the Keva Juice company is actually based out of New Mexico--and we agree, the product is awesome. It has a dizzying menu of enormous fruity milkshakes (or “smoothies,” to some), all blended up with fruit, frozen yogurt, juice and/or sherbet. And, in some cases, Oreos. Yum.

Almost all the other Mac’s locations have quietly shut down over the years. Maybe it’s because each greasy, paper-lined basket is a heart attack waiting to happen—but at least we’re dying happy. Fried steak fingers, white rolls or Texas toast, and thick, creamy shakes are the hidden crown jewels of the establishment. Just be sure to call before heading over, because the hours change without notice. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

Squeezed into the heart of Nob Hill, Coldstone is a corprate gem amongst locals. The staff is friendly, there’s a variety of goodies to choose from including ice cream cupcakes. Aside from the tiny patio space and sharing a restroom with Kellys next door, this space is great for people watching and cooling off. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

There are more members of AARP than UNM students at this University-area lunch counter, but it has nothing to do with the food. There are also more women than men filling the tables, though that’s understandable. After all, half of the building is dedicated to fancy soaps, hairbrushes, jewelry and perfumes. But this pharmacy (which doesn’t take insurance and therefore fills few prescriptions) is full of mysterious contrasts and pleasant surprises. The mostly sandwich menu is far above par, with real roasted turkey breast and house-made brisket, and Model has the Best Soda Fountain in Albuquerque, according to our readers.

The process used to create Olo’s vibrant flavors guarantees live, active cultures in the product. There are 10 flavors available on tap at any given time, every one richly flavorful. (You can find this week’s list of flavors on Olo's website.) Follow the signs and take a cup to the stainless steel taps. Once you have your yogurt(s) in a cup, there are more than 45 toppings to crown your dish. Finish it off with a swirl of whipped cream and weigh in at the register. At less than 50 cents an ounce (and prices drop during cold weather), you can customize a treat that satisfies your palate and your pocketbook. (Alibi Staff, November 18, 2010)

Itsa Italian Ice is an old favorite for many Burqueños. Originally located on Lomas years ago, Itsa was—and is—for kids and grown-ups alike. Diners can choose from several fruity flavors like cantaloupe, lemon, cherry, watermelon, black raspberry, lime, grape or banana, as well as other flavors like chocolate or "blue moon" (cotton candy). Each tastes remarkably like the food it was named for, and the portion sizes are enormous. On the hot side, there are hamburgers, dogs and a Philly cheese steak that’s tender and visibly marbled, made with steak that actually tastes like steak. (Alibi Staff, August 11, 2010)

There’s a certain tangible thrill that comes with eating in the hollow gullet of a giant bird of prey, especially when you’re tearing into a juicy green chile cheeseburger, red-tinged grease streaming down your claws, a shiny ring encircling your beak.

Yeller Sub is the place for great subs like meatball, steak and egg, sliced top-round roast beef, or a steak and grilled onion that isn't quite downtown Philly quality, but it's not bad. There's a soda fountain where they can whip you up a mean milkshake for about five bucks, and for seven, a banana split big enough to send even the most hardcore sugar junkie into a coma. They've got fresh salads and homemade cinnamon rolls. They cater, they deliver, they bake their own rolls, and they've got excellent, friendly service at the counter no matter what time of the day or night you wander in looking for a meat fix.

Seated in cozy Old Town, Steve’s Ice Cream and Java not only has delicious ice cream flavors, they also have wonderful service and a small patio where you can take a break from the heat while enjoying a tasty treat. Check out the wide variety of Blue Bell flavors and perk up with a double iced mocha. (Alibi Staff, June 6, 2016)

Winners of Best Dish Covered in Gravy, Best Chicken-Fried Steak, Best Milkshake/Malt, Best Diner and Best American in recent polls. Step back in time for old-fashioned diner food and atmosphere with a New Mexican twist (incarnate in the hot and spicy Frito Pie). The 66 Diner dishes up yummy burgers and fries, breakfast plates and daily specials like chicken pot pie with cream gravy or crispy-fried po’ boys. The real stars in this place, though, are the awesome frozen desserts. They run the gamut from mammoth banana splits to 99-cent teeny-weeny hot fudge sundaes. The milkshakes come in almost any flavor combination you can think of and are some of the creamiest, most lip-smacking concoctions around. (Alibi Staff, October 13, 2010)
