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

For over 85 years they have been serving "superior" Ice cream. It is rich, creamy and the milk shakes have to be eaten with a spoon. Getting a seat in the summer is hard to do.

This is a landmark here in the town of Hanford.. This place is unique in that it has a "old school" feel of a ice cream shoppe.. Choose to sit in one of many booths or sit at the wrap around counter.. the staff is friendly and dress in the uniforms of the time era.. Their ice cream flavors here... More
