You will love th history as much as the yogurt!!!! The you team of servers do a great job and are very friendly. Stop on a hot summer day and you will not be disappointed. Make sure you bring cash they do not take cards.

I love the custard at Hank's! If we are on the highway a few miles away, it's worth a little side trip to stop here. You know it's good when there is almost always a line! But they have multiple windows open and those people can move fast. This is one of my favorite places to stop for a treat.

This is the best ice cream you will ever taste. Hanks still uses the old fashioned machines that must be attended to constantly. Make sure to read the history of Hanks that is posted in the window. It's a very interesting history.

I grew up going to Conneaut Lake Park in the summer as a child and we never visited Hank's. I was told by friends on this trip that we had to go. We will not go anywhere else! My son enjoyed watching the ice cream being made in the old time machines. I had a pretzel salad sundae and it... More

My parents were friends with the family who owned Hank's Frozen Custard in the 1950's and it was always a special treat to get a Frozen Custard and play with their children. My family moved to New Hampshire in 1958 so we rarely got back to Meadville, PA and Conneaut Lake, PA, but I will never forget the most delicious... More

Hank's Frozen Custard Stand has the best frozen custard that we have experienced anywhere. We've been going there for over 50 years.

The frozen custard is wonderful, and it is distinctive - not just ice cream with a fancy name. It's still made with the original machines. On hot summer nights, expect long lines, but they move quickly.

This is the best tasting, creamiest, ice cream that I have tasted anywhere. I love how they showcase a different flavor every day, besides their Chocolate and Vanilla. I love Butterscotch day!

So we're drinking a couple beers, and enjoying Voodoo Brewery's food. But they don't have anything sweet. The bartender and the young woman next to us (an Allegheny College student) begin a serious back-and-forth over the merits of Caseys (best if you like stuff in your ice cream) and Hanks (best if you like simpler flavours). So we go to... More
