My family and I live in Conroe so we do noy get to visit Hank's as much as we would like but it is a part of the trip if we go anywhere near downtown. They have the best ice cream I have ever tried and I eat a lot of ice cream. It is always a treat when we visit and Hank or his wife are at the counter they are the sweetest people. The rest of the staff is not near as friendly but it is ok. We are looking for more locations up north.
I just recently visited Hank's for the first time this past weekend and I was really impressed...I am a Cold Stone customer and Hank's ice cream is just as good and much cheaper! The employee's could have been a little more friendly but overall, really great experience!! I will definitely return for more butter pecan ice cream!!!
If I'm not mistaken, Hank makes all his own ice creams, and every one of them we have tried has been absolutely heavenly. He has a big selection of flavors at all times. His wife makes home made cones in the shop as well. This is a wonderful special treat whenever we are in the area of the Reliant stadium and Astro complex.
PROS: Best ice cream in town!
I can't even begin to explain this place, its off S.Main which is an area I hardly frequent even though it is close being inside the loop but let me just tell you this has to be the absolute BEST ice cream ever! I selected the banana pudding ice cream on my first visit and still can't get the taste off my mind. The banana pudding ice cream really just brought me back to childhood, it tasted like my grandmothers banana pudding and even had huge soft pieces of vanilla wafer in it, but make sure you get it in a waffle cone, its the only way!!! Also, they have this butter pecan ice cream that apparently tastes just like pecan pie, this will be my next pick! I can't wait to go back and when I do, I am going to stock up on several pints that I can conveniently place in my freezer, so I can have Hank's amazing ice cream whenever I so please! Thank You Hank's!!
I have eaten a lot of ice cream in various cities around the world, but this is easily my favorite. It's creamy, and fresh, and just sooooo good! Proof: I hate butter pecan ice cream with a passion, but at a friend's insistence, I had a bite of her butter pecan from Hank's, and I swear, it was the best ice cream I've ever had. In other words, my least favorite ice cream at Hank's is better than my favorite ice cream anywhere else.
Hank's Ice Cream is heavenly!!! My co-workers and I just had some for breakfast and I am thinking about having some more for lunch. Baskin and Robbins should close down.
Pros: Creamy and delicious
Cons: No Hank's in New Orleans!!
I went to Hank's for the first time this past Friday. That is some serious ice cream. I got the Banana Pudding. I tried some of my friend's flavors ... Cookies-n-Cream, Butter Pecan, Brownie Fudge. They wer all so good. It was so good I had to go back on Sunday to get some to take to my parents.
Pros: Great Taste, Inexpensive
Hanks Ice is wonderful and tasty yet I do have a problem with the fact that the establishment keeps the tips. I feel that is stealing from the public. If I leave a tip it is for great service not to purchase more ice cream. After finding out that everynight the tips are counted and kept by Mr. Hank that made me feel very uncomfortable so eat the ice cream and DO NOT LEAVE TIPS IN THE TIP JAR MR HANK KEEPS THE TIPS from his employees yet the ice cream is grrrrrrrrrreat and the service is wonderful
Pros: Cheap Ice Cream wonderful ice cream
Cons: On Friday No Parking , He KEEPS THE EMPLOYESS TIP THEY"VE WORKED FOR
I LOOOOVE Hank's! I go there regularly and the experience is always great! I also, for the first time, just called Hank to see if he could make a flavor especially for me (it's a flavor he makes, he just didn't have it on hand) and he's going to do it! When I thanked him, he said, "It's all a part of our reputation, ma'am."
Banana Pudding and Cookies & Caffeine are my favorites!!
This place is the best! I don't have a favorite only favorites. Try the sweet potato, cotton candy, banana pudding, or b. pecan. CS and MS can not compete. This stuff is worth its weight in gold! Besides the incredible ice cream it makes more sense supporting a mom and pop joint instead of a corp. chain.
I just recently visited Hank's for the first time this past weekend and I was really impressed...I am a Cold Stone customer and Hank's ice cream is just as good and much cheaper! The employee's could have been alittle more friendly but overall, really great experience!! I will definatley return for more butter pecan ice cream!!!
Hank and his staff are the best and the ICE CREAM, I cannot say enough. It is simply the best!!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks Hank for all the hard work. Continue to keep your customers eating good ice cream.
I've been going to Hanks for years. The staff is exceptional and Hank I'm not sure how to compliment him. HE'S GREAT !! (:
I want to say the Butter Pecan is my favorite, but then I think of Rum Raisin, Banana Pudding,Almond Joy, oh I can go on. At Hanks everything is good.
My favorite Sundae is Butter Pecan ice cream topped with caramel , nuts , whip cream and more pecans and don't forget the cherry. A great suggestion by one of the staff.
KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK HANK !!!
Pros: good ice cream, great sevice, variety
Cons: absolutely none
Hank's Ice Cream is AMAZING! Some of my favorite flavors are Rose Pedal, Creamed Corn, Butter Pecan (Best of the Best), Mango Madness, Grape Nut, Apple Pie, and Ginger. Everyone of them taste fresh and homemade. This ice cream is among the best of the best. The staff is extremely friendly, down-to-earth, and patient. I'd give Hank's a perfect 10 anyday! It's worth the 4 hours I drive just to have my favorite ice cream.
Pros: Inexpensive, Relaxed Ambience, Good Parking
Hank's has the best ice cream! Everything tastes extremely homemade. My favorite "exotic" flavors are the Creamed Corn ice cream and Rose Petal ice cream. The Butter Pecan, Banana Pudding, and Almond Joy are also excellent. They didn't have a certain flavor that I wanted, and they told me to call a couple days before I came the next time and they would make some for me. The staff is so friendly, and you can't beat the prices. I drive two hours each way just for Hank's--seriously.
Pros: Staff, Flavors
Cons: Absolutely none.
I really like Hank's Ice Cream. It's a little small ice cream palor on S. Main they serves delicious sweet cream and banana pudding ice cream. You can pay $1.00 for a large scoop ice cream. They are great!
Pros: Good Ice Cream, Fast Service
Cons: Parlor is small
Hank and his wife have really put their hearts and souls into this unique Ice Cream Parlour. I am addicted to the Butter Pecan but will try all the flavors eventually -- A smiling face is always there to greet you and service is always first rate. Check out the pictures from around the world as you enjoy your icecream -- Thanks Hank !! You are always My number one choice !!!
Words cannot really describe how good the ice cream at Hank's is but I will say this - it is my understanding that the pecans are raosted by the owner himself for that wonderful butter pecan ice cream he creates. Just try it once and you will be a customer for life. The banana pudding ice cream, yes, banan pudding ice cream is wonderful, too. Trust me, you are in for a treat.
Wanna taste *real* ice cream that takes you back to old fashioned summer picnics? Hanks is the place. Parking is a pain (no fault of Hanks -- the shopping center has the weirdest parking lot "rules" I've ever experienced) but one taste of that ice cream and you'll forget the hassle! Trust me, Brenham fans, this is truly "...the best ice cream in the country"!
Pros: freshness, great value, quality
Cons: poor parking
Hank's Ice Cream Parlor catered an ice cream social for 250 employees on 7/26 - the ice cream made the event a smash hit!!!! Comments such as - "man, this ice cream is ggggoooood", "can I get some more", "this taste like homemade", "where is the shop located", this is absolutely delicious. I would definitely recommend Hank's to cater your ice cream needs!!!! The staff is courteous and efficient!!!
Without a doubt -- the best ice cream I have ever eaten. If you like pecans, his butter pecan is "to die for". The owner is a Real True American with a desire to serve his clients the best possible ice cream in Houston. If you have never tried Hank's Ice Cream, you don't know what you are missing!
Pros: Inexpensive, Fabulous Taste, Great Service
oh my God!!!!! this icecream is the best in town and the customer service is wonderful, you get great icecream, mentorship, and just have fun...
you know the ice cream is good when people come from across town to eat this icecream for LUNCH!!!!
BANANA PUDDING ICECREAM IS A MUST!!!!!!
GOD BLESS HANKS ICECREAM .
HEATH GOFFNEY (former marble slab customer)
Cons: one location
If you think you've tasted the best ice cream already, or you think you know how to make great tasting home made ice cream, and you haven't tasted Hank's Ice Cream, then you're just fooling yourself.
The ice cream that Mr. Hank serves is heavenly homemade! I have been a customer since I was a teen and will continue to visit as long as I can. If you love buttered pecan ice cream, this is the place for you to have a double scoop.
Pros: great value, homemade, service
Cons: parking, small location
Sometimes we just skip Sunday supper and go to Hank's instead. There is an instant camaraderie among customers here (along with the best Rum Raisin and Butter Pecan ever!). Last week we spent a nice hour savoring and schmoozing!
Pros: semi-valet parking on
Cons: Freshly made ice crea
Hank's Ice Cream is the BEST Ice Cream in Houston! My family and I drive 30 miles one way to get visit Hank's every weekend! The butter pecan is like no other, and the orange chocolate in the fall is simply YUMMY!
