“Unbelievable Flavors”
Reviewed April 11, 2012

Pros: Hanks has a wide array and ever changing menu. The various flavors are always delicious. Never tasted a bad one.

Cons: Don't try to pay with a credit card. Cash only here.

“Best homemade ice cream around”
Reviewed February 12, 2012

Hands down, Hank's has the best ice cream around. Fresh and homemade. You can even taste how homemade it is. Not too rich. Hank had just passed away when we were there so you could sense the sense of loss they were feeling. The store is older and could use a re-do but all in all a truly authentic place. Can't wait to go again!

“Ice cream as it should be and no longer is”
Reviewed October 11, 2011

The fact that the NOTHING Amy's Ice Creams--wildly overpriced, mediocre, and pretentious--is rated above Hank's is a pathetic comment on the taste of many TripAdvisor 'reviewers'. Hank's is superb in every way; Hank is a chef whose medium happens to be ice cream, and he often makes unusual or special flavors simply on a whim. His ice cream tastes (unlike Amy's or any other revolting and overpriced YUPPIE CHAIN) like homemade ice cream in the very best sense. Run, do not walk; Hank ain't gettin any younger, sadly.
