I used to go to Ted Drews as a High School student at Cleveland High In South Saint Louis. A visit back there brought back many old memories. and Yes it was just as good as I remembered. My wife loved it also. The crowds where big but the lines moved quickly.

Never disappointed when ordering treats here! Am a long-standing visitor to St. Louis, and I always get to Drews at least once while in St. Louis. The BEST ice cream sundaes, especially the Hot Fudge! Bon Appetit!

After the waiter explained the difference between a sundae and a concrete, I ordered the Terramizzou concrete and it was wonderful. It had vanilla frozen yogurt and mixed with chocolate and pistachos. I would have liked a place to sit down while eating. Go for a small size as it is filling!!

This is a must stop on Route 66. We called in after lunch for dessert. It was just yummy. We had the 'concrete' and all three of us were really impressed. This is right on Route 66, which we were driving. I mentioned our road trip to the staff and they produced a keepsake menu, bumper sticker and other stickers.... More

It was so nice to visit such a neat place on route 66. The girl at the counter got a bit ill when I asked questions like "What is a concrete?" I had no idea. The custard was good. And the people were fun.

We wanted to see the Old Route 66 landmark so we headed to Ted Drew's for custard. There were long lines to order. We got there when many high school girls were there. It was worth the wait. If you like frozen custard, go and enjoy. They are open from March to January

Come-on ... how can you go wrong? Yes it touristy. Yes it is expensive. But, it is also local, and it is delicious. What a cool place. Hang out with the locals enjoying a delicious custard. It's worth the trip. And the calories!

We went on a Thursday night and it was very busy but they are fast to get things out. I had the cardinal sin and it was delicious but then anything resembling frozen yogurt is good.

Thank Verlia
