Beautiful place in the heart of historic downtown Hanford. We got a 2 scoop ice cream sundae and it was HUGE! Enough for a family of 4. The ice cream is the BEST I've ever tasted. They make it right there at Superior. The service and atmosphere was also fantastic. We will definitely return.

Ice cream cones are outrageously huge. Fare is fair. Normal restaurant food. Banana splits are big. Had an egg salad sandwich that was overpriced. Again a "good old boy" kind of place that locals adore.

I go there only for ice cream but they serve other food also. The ice cream is excellent and the portions are way above what any other place serves

Having gone to Superior Dairy for over 50 years I have so many great memories ... Milkshakes and sandwiches are just the best! Huge servings and always a fun time!

It's the BIG Scoops and nostalgic décor that make Superior Dairy a hit. Great place for families to share JUMBO Sundaes. Sharing is a cost saving because the portions are huge.

This is the best ice cream that I have ever eaten and the size of the cone is amazing. One scoop could feed 2-3 people. If you go here and have a couple of people with you try the SOS the rasphberry freeze in it is to die for.

We love to take friends to Superior for ice cream treats. The sundaes are so big it's enough for 2 people.

Took the train from Fresno to Hanford just to check it out. Overall the trip was a struggle. Having twins on the train, at a 18 months old, was probably not such a good plan, but we survived. Haha. I checked out some other reviews to gain some insight of what we were getting in too and I'm happy I... More

Let's start off with the fact that ice cream is almost always awesome, whether you get it at the grocery store or an ice cream shop. Superior's ice cream is good; no argument there. The portions are ridiculously enormous, which is great, except for the fact that a large part of your sundae is melted before you can finish it.... More
