Many people I know talk about Superior Dairy and the amazing ice cream. I have heard about it from friends for years. My bestie and her family always talk about how good the ice cream is.
Social media has mixed reviews. It seems based on Facebook, Yelp and urbanspoon people either love it or hate it. However, the people that hate it generally hate it because of poor service. Now, coming with a Bachelor of Science in management and a background in retail I can tell you this ... most reviews are from unhappy customers. Unhappy customers tend to spend endless amounts of time complaining. Unfortunately happy customers don't spend the same amount of time writing good reviews.
Coming home from a recent trip out of town, El Husbee and I went to Superior Dairy for the first time. We were lucky and there was a open table when we arrived. The place was quite busy and there was even a line at the take out section. There was already a menu on the table. We decided immediately that we wanted to share a banana split. (I mean what else do you get from a ice cream parlor?) Our waitress arrived at our table with ice water and ready to take our order. Now, our banana split arrived before I came back from the restroom. This is important because I was not gone long at all.
The banana split was massive. We got our banana split with chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry ice cream. I am pretty sure you can get other flavors but we wanted to try the originals before getting too crazy. There was pineapple syrup and strawberry syrup poured over the ice cream. I love that they put the nuts separately because El Husbee loves nuts and I am not a big fan. So this was perfect. All three ice creams were delicious. The strawberry tasted very fresh and not at all like strawberry exact. The chocolate was nice and creamy and rich of chocolate flavor. To me the chocolate taste more like dark chocolate.
We got pretty close to finishing the banana split. I would say we had probably 1/2 a normal size scoop left. I will for sure coming here again. I hear that the lemon ice cream is super yummy and for sure want to try that.
