This place is historic in the hearts of many who grew up in St. Louis. Ted has two locations that serve the very best frozen custard mixes. They have something for everyone. Ted would go on vacation and make a new custard based on his trip each year.

Saw this featured in Southern Living magazine. It was well worth seeking out: retro, throwback kind I'd place with delicious custard style ice cream. The strawberry shortcake concoction was to die for and big enough to share. Yum Yum!,

My boyfriend who grew up in St. Louis insisted I needed to try Ted Drewes. Even though it was December and eating frozen custard seemed strange, I have to say the pumpkin pie special was delicious. The custard had little bits of pie crust and a great pumpkin taste. If I'm in Portland, Oregon I have to stop by Voodoo... More

Stopped by Ted Drewes en route to the airport. It was about 29 degrees outside and oh so worth it! I wanted to experience the custard that inspired Shake Shack and it was delicious! I went simple and just got a plain chocolate (which appears to be vanilla with a chocolate sauce mix in). The sizes are quite surprising-- I... More

I am a native St. Louisan but Ted Drewes attraction alludes me. It is good, don't get me wrong, but the way my fellow natives salivate over this place is beyond me. I like the custard but I don't really go out of my way to get it. There is a definite taste difference to custard in relation to ice... More

Try the Cardinal Sin..Hot fudge with cherries! It is my all time favorite but whatever you choose get a big one because a small will not do! SO many flavors to choose from, toppings and concretes..they are all WONDERFUL!

This place is paradise for the icecream connoisseurs are so many different flavours, sizes & combinations to choose from its difficult to know where to start. Because it was sunny I actually found myself there queuing on Boxing Day unbelievable. There are always lots of people around & about but the service is excellent & you really dont have long...

Ted Drewes is known around the world and is a must dessert stop while in STL. Don't be discouraged by the extremely long lines being maintained by the police because this line moves very fast and it won't be any less if you come back tomorrow...It is always this way! Make sure to note that the girl taking your order... More

Ted Drewes is a landmark in St Louis. The lines will look intimidating but they will move fast. Everything is delicious and service is always with a smile. The owner is wonderful to his employees, he has scholarships that has put many of his high school level employees through college. So, you enjoy great frozen custard and support and wonderful...
