“Ice cream was fresh tasting & nice customer service”
Reviewed June 12, 2012

The ice cream was fresh tasting, but the flavor was not strong enough for me, the mango and lemon flavors were weak. I anticipated tasting a strong lemon or mango flavor, since those fruits are quite flavorful and can be quite powerful at times especially the mango when it is ripe. For a half gallon the cost was $12.00, and a small cup was roughly $4.50. The costs were a bit higher than I anticipated for the single servings, so I opted for the half gallon, thankfully someone else in the residence cared for the light lemon flavoring. Of course others may like the flavoring, I am going to sample a few other flavors, and continue searching other ice cream parlors, since Baskin Robbin's lemon custard isn't as flavorful as it once was. ;>)

“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!
