Best Ice Cream in the the valley

This place has been around since I can remember. Homemade ice cream that is amazing. Growing up in Hanford we always went to Superior Dairy. So many great memories. The hot fudge sundaes are the best. A one scoop sundae looks like a five scoop. An the hot fudge is to die for, but no matter what you... read more

I've had lots of ice cream. This was nothing special. The place is crowded. The gentleman running the establisment was rude. There was no where to sit. There was no rhyme or reason as to who sits where or when. Truly a free for all. The locals pack the place and they were all very nice. The servings were huge... More

This ice cream parlor is known world wide. It's no wonder. I make a special trip to Hanford once a year to visit friends and get Superior ice cream. It is that good! When planning a trip to the central valley of California, make Hanford one of your stops and be sure to go to Superior. If it's crowded as... More

I live in Hanford and still love to go to Superior Dairy. The people are friendly and sandwhiches are good but the ice cream is the best. If you go take a group of people and try the SOS, it will take a few people to eat it all. One scoop of their ice cream is like 4 somewhere else.

Anytime I come into town I have to stop and have Superiors! Service can be just okay due to younger servers or just busy customers, but the ice cream will not disappoint! Local favorite!!

This place on the main square in downtown Hanford was packed on a Saturday afternoon. Its been in business for 80 plus years and owns its own cows. Ice cream dishes are huge and wonderful. Sandwiches are OK. Do not miss!

Superior Dairy has been sold to Starbuck's, so hurry and get your favorite who knows what will happen to it once it's taking over. Another highlight of Hanford biting the dust. Hope it doesn't change once it is not family owned you know it will, going to miss you!

For those who have issues with store bought ice cream as I do - this product is exactly what the doctor ordered. Yes the portions are huge - so SHARE! Or order one dip - I promise you will not be disappointed. Another little secret - at certain times of the year - there are special flavors available - so... More
