Can't go wrong

It is always busy, but well worth the wait. Make sure you bring a couple of friends if you want to try the SOS. Be adventurous. The only place that still has the same quality year after year. The Santa club even meets there on occasion.

went with one of my daughters who loves this place and was very pleased. I know American servings are large but only one scoop of their delicious ice cream was enough for two adults and one 2 year old. shop was very busy but service was prompt and really enjoyed watching other peoples enormous orders.

My wife and I like to come down to Superior Dairy for their milkshakes. I absolutely love the chocolate chip shake with some peanut butter syrup added. Can be pretty packed at certain times of the day.

We came to Hanford for a baseball tournament. We heard about the Superior ice cream back home in Pismo as a "must do". We were not prepared enough. The place was amazing; the old fashion look, the enormous portions, not so sweet but super creamy. My family of 5 each got our own and we were all fully satisfied. Totally... More

You had better be VERY hungry for ice cream when you visit Superior Dairy in Hanford. There portions are GInormous. One scoop isn't one, it's actually two. The banana split is a boat of deliciousness too. The ice cream shop reminds you of a bi gone era of old soda shops. You won't be disappointed with any flavor, but honestly,... More

Why ruin a uniquely good thing? Your choice chip ice cream is just ordinary now. for over 70 years I have been eating your choice chip ice cream and recommended to many people because of its uniqueness: a light chocolate color with little flakes of chocolate through in contrast to every other brand which is nothing more than vanilla with...

By any icecream standard, this ice-cream is not as good as Bryer's or Sunnyside Ice Cream. Nothing special. No place to sit and nobody minding a seating list. We waited patiently at the door for 40 minutes for a table for six to become available. Along came a man and his daughter, saddling themselves up to the stools at the... More
