Superior Dairy Ice Cream- Hanford..OMG!!

I happened to be in the Hanford area with three of my work colleagues. We had read about the Superior Dairy Ice Cream Shop in Hanford online and decided to check it out. When we walked in we were transported back in time to an old time diner with formica booths and a counter. The ceiling was textured and looked as if it was from another era. A banner was hung from the walls stating the restaurant has been in business for 75 years. The menu was printed on paper placemats. We decided to get a four scoop sundae with hot fudge and split it between the four of us. We each ordered one flavor- banana, rocky road, maple nut, and vanilla. It was $5.70. When the waitress brought it to the table we all looked at the sundae- looked at each other- and started laughing in amazement. The sundae was a foot high and had whatappeared to be the equivalent of a half gallon of ice cream loaded into the bowl. It was topped with gobs of whip cream and cherries with the hot fudge and walnuts were on the side. It was monsterous but mesmerizing! I couldn't stop staring at it. We began to dig in and it was delicious and wickedly decadent. The ice cream was creamy and flavorful. We just kept eating, laughing and staring at it. Eventually we couldn't eat another bite. We were unable to finish it(between four people)-and half of the sundae was still left! I highly recommend this great ice cream shop.
