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!

I lived in St. Louis about 30 years ago, and that's about the last time I had Ted Drewes until this past weekend. I was almost afraid to go back, thinking that maybe it wouldn't be as good as I remembered. I had nothing to worry about, it was fantastic! My husband and I went in the afternoon this past... More

I took my son for the first time. As usual on a weekend night, the place is packed and driving around for parking is part of the adventure. The lines meandered into the road, and we spent a lot of time deciding on what kind of concrete to get. After being unable to decide, we agreed to get two minis... More

Family vacations to St. Louis have always included a stop at Ted Drewes! Every concrete is always better than the last. The smooth, creamy, delicious custard that makes other frozen custards feel mediocre. The healthy dose of toppings on the sundaes. And all the different choices and combinations! It's definitely worth a stop, if you're in the neighborhood, or even... More

We were looking forward to this place since so many people had talked it up. But in the end, we were disappointed. The custard is just average, nothing special. It is not worth the long line. We felt the shakes at Sonic were better.

I was told I must go here if I came to St. Louis for custard and I did. I am really glad I tried it! It was definitely one of the best custards I have ever eaten. I had the all shook up and it was very tasty worth trying.

Everyone has a 'custard' shoppe in their home town but Ted Drew's is a step above all just in quality. THE ABSOLUTELY SMOOTHEST DESERT YOU WILL PUT INTO YOUR MOUTH! PERIOD. Not Graeter's
