My kids liked the ice cream and had fun trying to see who could finish all of the ice cream.They want to return and attempt to eat the seven scoop ice cream dish.

We were able to enjoy this place thanks to friends we were visiting in the area who recommended we check it out. The ice cream was very good and the amount of ice cream served was unbelievable. One scoop was the size of a softball or bigger. We ordered a banana split to share between my husband and I, our... More

Last night was our first trip to Superior Dairy but I certainly hope it is not our last. We are visiting our daughter and her family in California and this will be a request each time we come back. The prices are unbelievable for the size of the servings. We only had ice cream so I cannot comment on the... More

Ok, so this place is somewhat of an institution. It's apparently been a place to go get ice cream since like the 50's and when you go there, you'll see why. They serve ENORMOUS servings of ice cream, I mean seriously, one sundae will likely feed your whole family, and maybe some neighbors too. Seriously, the servings are giant, and... More

Best ice cream by far. Take Amtrak and stop in Hanford.The shop is worth the stop alone. Seeing other reviews, I do agree. You need to take friends/family with you to help eat it all. A single scoop is (in my opinion) about 6 of other places'. Can't say enough about it. I LOVE IT! I have made trips especially... More

Huge Scoops....... Superior Dairy scoops it up right. With homemade Ice Cream and there HUGE scoops are outstanding but it is the shots of flavor that send it over the top. And by shots of flavor I mean you can get a shot glass full of hot fudge, caramel or marshmallow, oh and don't forget the nuts or just do... More

Great place to take the family for ice cream. Only thing is you MUST get there early. Place gets packed. Afternoons over the weekend has sports teams from all over the county. Come hungry. One scoop at Superiors is like three scoops anywhere else. Enjoy

A family operated institution for 85 years, Superior Dairy serves without a doubt the best Ice Cream this side of the Mississippi. As former residents, we eat there whenever we are in the area. Summer time special is fresh peace ice cream. You can tell it is fresh peaces by the pieces you can see in the serving. And occasionally,... More

I wrote a review on this place before, but I visited recently, and I noticed a change. The service is still as terrible as always, the rudest employees known to mankind. The place is still slowly rotting away...the beautiful happy ice cream shop that once was is slowly crumbling down, and the dirt stuck in the corners continues to pile... More
