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

Don't be a hero -- the portions here are too much for mere mortals! My companion ordered a "one scoop sundae" and it towered a full 8" over the top of the bowl! The food is of more manageable portions, though. If you go in there and order a 2 or three-scoop sundae, you deserve to pop like the glutton... More

Best chocolate malt I've ever had. The medium was enough for my wife and I including left over for a to-go cup! Even better on a hot March day. The sandwiches were just OK.

We went on a Saturday afternoon for the first time and it was great. We could not finish the generous scoops of ice cream so we took the rest home. It's even better the next day. The staff was friendly and the atmosphere was fun. The amount of ice cream is insane and everything looked sooo good!!

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.
