I've been coming here since I was a toddler. Same for my dad in the 50's and my grandma since the 30's. Heck, even my great grandmother used to work here when she was a young lady. Aside from the nostalgia, this place is still the best creamery/ice cream joint I've ever patronized (and I've been all over the country). The quality of the ice cream is umatched. Ben and Jerry's and Hagen Daaz wishes they can make ice cream like Superior Dairy. The scoops are huge, So You won't be missing out on value. You get quality AND quantity! The service is great too. Most of the staff consists of local teens, and they are very respectful and courteous- and certainly not stingy when scooping the ice cream! Finally, the place is very clean and hygienic. While eating in, you have a great view of the civic autitorium, it's fountain, and the park. When it's nice out, you can eat your ice cream while strolling through the park. Oh, and this place makes for a great place for a first date! Thanks for reading!

If you like ice cream, this is a definite must visit for you! The single scoop sundae is huge! The ice cream is made from the best cream from the local dairy's. The place was built in the early 1900's and is a beautiful landmark of Hanford, CA.

Not only is the ice cream fresh and delicious. Not only is the place an iconic ice cream parlour with white and pink booths and counter stools. Not only is the ice cream an international winner. But the single scoop is as big as your head!!! It's enough to share with at least one other, maybe two other friends. Bring a group of 7 or 8 and order one of their towering sundaes. YUM!

A trusted and true creamery cafe, left over from the original dairy of prior fame. Thanks to the late Huell Howser, host of "California's Gold" PBS show. I had an enormous scoop of vanilla to go, only because all the little red booths were taken. This place is so popular, especially in summer you have to get there at an optimum time to get a seat!

Superior Dairy is THE place to go for ice cream! The food is average (and optional), but the ice cream is what it's known for. One serving size is VERY large, and the S.O.S. is definitely a challenge for any person, or the perfect choice for sharing with family and friends.
