I have been here too many times to count. I think I probably received satisfactory service 3 or 4 times. The ice cream is legendary, but maybe one day the manager will get it together and have higher expectations for his establishment and staff.

I've been here twice. One Saturday it was so crowded, which such long lines, that we barely made it to our departing train even though the server kindly changed our order to "take out." During the week it was almost like a different place: Fast, pleasant service. The ice cream concoctions both times were very, very good. There are indeed... More

So when the number one ranked restaurant in a city is an ice cream place, that means either: a) There are no good food restaurants around b) The ice cream options are very very good All I can say is Wow. This old style ice cream parlor is authentic, and the ice cream is pure, real, and servings are huge.... More

Great ice cream, friendly service. The flavor selection was limited, but still the ice cream was great.

Superior Dairy is a must stop on a visit to Hanford, a bit south of Fresno in California's San Joaquin Valley, As a city Hanford is welcoming and historically interesting, with an unexpected Mid-Western charm. Superior Dairy Ice Cream is hand made and perhaps most importantly...servings are HUGE! The restaurant is in the heart of downtown, and has a classic... More

I grew up in Hanford and was first introduced to Superior Dairy 55+ years ago. In fact, the Superior Dairy truck delivered bottled milk to our farm. However, it was the amazing ice cream that fairly often warranted a trip into town. Back then, I wasn't aware they offered anything other than milkshakes, and I always got chocolate. I eventually...

When all of our kids and grandkids came for the holiday, we knew that it would not be complete without a visit to Superior Dairy. A few tried the "SOS" and even finished it. The flavors are the best. I thought that we would try something different for Christmas dinner so I made ice cream pies. We had pumpkin and... More
