So many memories

Ted Drewes has a lot of memories for me, I'm sure that colors my opinion. I love it! Best treat ever. I always get the Cardinal Sin. Always. Hot fudge and tart cherries on the best vanilla custard. Or in a concrete. It is the best thing ever, but if that's not your thing, there are so many other... read more

I was expecting the best frozen custard of my life. I prefer culvers. Maybe I just went on the wrong day.

Loved going to Ted Drewes. Great smooth texture. Better than any ice cream that I have ever had. Incredible amount of flavor combinations. Long lines don't take long at all because there are so many people taking orders. Really really good.

Ted Drewes and White Castle (little burgers) are two musts when visiting St. Louis. Love their concretes (turn a cup of custard upside down and it does not come out) Lots of flavor choices. Really packed on the weekends.

Don't go here often but do enjoy when I do. Huge crowds all the time it seems but the lines move quickly. Good custard and lots of choices unique to just them. I'm boring so I usually just get vanilla but even it's quite tasty. Didn't remember all the benches along the parking lot but that's a nice touch. Definite... More

Ted Drewes was the very first St. Louis attraction I was taken to when I moved here 33 years ago. It still is the best! Delicious 'concretes' are thick velvety concoctions that can be turned upside down and not fall or spill out. Make your own combos or choose a signature sundae. Flying Dutchman & Fox Treat are 2 favorites.... More

Always a good crowd when I visit Ted Drewes but they serve you quickly. It's not your standard ice cream. It's frozen custard and is delicious. Lots of flavors to choose from. I'll have to say the staff isn't always the most talkative or friendly, but that's not a visit killer for me... I'd prob. get tired of serving people... More

This is a St. Louis icon since 1929 and hands down they have the best frozen custard I have ever had. And, I consider myself a Consesieur of frozen custard, so have tried frozen custard from many places here in St. Louis and elsewhere. It's not whipped full of air...it's dense and creamy. The way I love it best is... More
