Best Ice Cream in Town!

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

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.
