Frozen custard in Tucumcari? I’m there

I found this fascinating little tidbit in the Quay County Sun about the CornerStone Deli, a fairly new restaurant on Route 66 in Tucumcari, N.M.

It’s in an old Pizza Hut building, and is open from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m. six days a week. But this part of the story got my interest up:

Employing a staff of 11, it is also one of the few places in New Mexico where you can purchase frozen custard, the Hicklins said.

“We use only the best ingredients, to produce the freshest, best tasting product possible,” Hicklin said.

It may not be Ted Drewes, but the prospect of frozen custard in a desert town like Tucumcari is an enticing one indeed.
