As a former local it's not a Spring visit without stopping by Eddie's then Hank's. I've been coming here since before I was 5 years old. (Trust me, there are pictures to proof it!) It's the creamiest custard I've ever had but was really lacking chocolate flavor. My 4 year old son and I shared 2 scoops of chocolate in... More

We had just eaten dinner and were close to Hanks, so went there for ice cream. This is a really cool place that has been in business since the early 50's! They still have the original custard machine! The place closes every fall and reopens in the early spring. They serve three flavors of custard. Chocolate, vanilla and the third... More

A must stop when in the Meadville area. Almost always busy but worth the wait. The frozen custard is always fresh and tasty!

So, so, so good! The custard is delicious, but so is the sherbet (the black cherry sherbet is amazing!). This is a 'don't miss' location if you are in the area!

Hanks opened for the 2017 on March 25 and I was fortunate enough to be in the area for the first Peanut Butter Custard day of the season. The rich, creamy, flavorful delight is one off my favorites. Sunday is Strawberry. Mon-Butterscotch. Tues-CLOSED All Day. Wed-Peanut Butter. Thursday-Black Raspberry. Fri-was a rotating mystery flavor until a vote by customers awarded... More

You will love th history as much as the yogurt!!!! The you team of servers do a great job and are very friendly. Stop on a hot summer day and you will not be disappointed. Make sure you bring cash they do not take cards.

I love the custard at Hank's! If we are on the highway a few miles away, it's worth a little side trip to stop here. You know it's good when there is almost always a line! But they have multiple windows open and those people can move fast. This is one of my favorite places to stop for a treat.
