I love Hank's. I live in Dallas, but I'd drive to Houston for Hank's Ice Cream! His butter pecan is out of this world and the banana pudding tastes like grandma's recipe. Hank and the staff are friendly and give huge scoops. They are always happy to give away samples, because they know you'll be hooked with the first bite! The parlor is decorated with autographed photos of famous people that have eaten his great ice cream. I just can't say enough good stuff about Hank's!

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. ;>)

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.
