I'm born and raised in Hanford so I may be a little biased but I prefer their lemon shake over any other. Ice cream is what they do, and they do it well, year after year.

Since 1929 Superior Dairy in Hanford, California has been amazing customers with delicious and gargantuan portions. Besides ice cream they also serve tasty sandwiches. Today my husband and I enjoyed a regular hot fudge sundae.

Long time valley favorite ice cream parlor still amazes you with what they call a single Scoop of on site made ice cream. The peach ice cream made with local tree ripened fruit is only available in the summer when the fruit is ripe. People drive from all over the valley or take Amtrak to Hanford for a true taste...

Recipe that was formulated many years ago is still the same. The quality has not diminished. Place is starting to show signs of wear and tear however and the place gets very noisy because there are always crowds of people enjoying the best ice cream ever.

If you are in Hanford, Ca., you have to try The Superior Dairy. Their ice cream in made on the spot and is the very best. This restaurant has been around for over 85 years, so you know it has to be good. Give it a try.

I grew up on this and there is absolutely nothing better. The ice cream is extremely creamy and rich. The portions are enormous, so even if you only get one scoop, there is more than enough to share. If you really want to wow someone, then try the SOS. It can feed a dozen or more. one time a friend... More
