Our shuttle driver recommended this place to us, and boy, are we glad he did. The place was very crowded, but the lines moved quickly because of all the people working. The menu was a little confusing, but some locals explained that a concrete is like a DQ blizzard. So one can order different flavors and mix-ins. There are so... More

This is the best custard I've ever had. We tried one with hazelnut with caramel it had fresh hazelnut crunchies in it. The pumpkin pie was soooo good! Words can't explain. It has pieces of pumpkin cake or donut in it. Great flavor. It's a must!

My husband and I always go here when visiting for Thanksgiving. No matter how cold it is this is the place to go. I always get the Christy which has to be the best sundae I've ever had. If you have a sweet tooth you need to try it! Creamy custard topped with hot fudge and caramel and just invade... More

Dropped in at Teds on our Route 66 honeymoon. Read in all the visitor books it was THE place to go. The lady who served us was so friendly and helpful and welcoming, it was worth going just for the service! She kindly gave us some stickers and a leaflet for our scrap book. The "frozen custard" was fab too,... More

One of the many highlights on our Route 66 trip was a Ted Drews 'concrete'. Yessssssssss, Delicious and creamy. Loads of flavours to choose from, plus naughty yummy toppings. And yes, we got the obligatory holding it upside down shot!! It was such a hot day when we visited there where loads of people there, but we didn't have to... More

I can't possibly say anything to add to how good this place is! You just need to go and see for yourself! Don't be intimidated by the lines standing around outside of Ted Drew's because these kids (the workers) know how to move the line... it goes fast. They're really helpful and friendly and don't mind explaining things to you.... More

Don't miss a trip here for frozen custard. It's creamier than ice cream and has a great mouthfeel. There is an enormous amount of flavors and the combinations are only limited by your imagination! Expect crowds but the line moves quickly. We were there on a hot day and stood in the parking lot eating our treats (no inside seating... More

Yummy for my tummy! When one of my friends said this place was better than a long-time childhood favorite in NYC, he was absolutely right! SO good! My husband had the banana split and loved it! "All" I had was a hot fudge sundae and I thought I died and gone to ice cream heaven. Although the name says "custard",... More

Stopped here on a friends recommendation and we were not disappointed. The concrete mix-ins with fresh fruit were delightful on this hot day.

Whenever we are visiting St. Louis, Ted Drew's is always one of our first stops! We usually make a point of going at these twice each visit, if not more. Delicious!
