We pulled up in a motor coach and got everyone in and out in less than 30 minutes. I had a group of Senior Citizens, and it was very overwhelming to order then to try to hear over everyone. But, we quickly developed a routine that assisted our customers, and the staff was super quick with the orders. The "concrete"... More

We were told that Ted Drewes was a must visit for frozen custard in St. Louis, so we made the 30-minute trek from our hotel. We were warned not to be intimidated by the long lines. Well, the lines, which appeared as a mob initially, moved much more quickly than our efforts to find a place to park. Parking was... More

If you're craving a cold dessert, this is it. If you're an out-of-tower do come; if you're a local and you haven't been, why not? The lines a long, but they move fast. There are sundaes, shakes, and concretes in various sizes. I love the abaca mocha concrete. I'd rather drink than it eat it, so I always ask for... More

Ted Drewes frozen custard is delicious! It was busy every time we went, but well worth the wait! I loved the concrete mixed with your favorite candy!

A lot of places claim to have the best frozen custard, but Ted Drewes delivers. Don't pass up the All Shook Up concrete (like an extra delicious blizzard) with bananas & Reese cup. Lines are long on weekends but move quickly. Absolutely outstanding treat!

The banana split is to die for! And I don't even like ice cream!!!!! They have a flavor for everyone. No wonder this place is famous.

We're from California and we don't have custards there. Found this place and the Concrete is similar to a Dairy Queen Blizzard. Ted's custard is smooth and delicious! A long line but with every bite.

The menu, along with the lines, are extensive, but the treats are all very special. With a local flare, there is something wonderful for the whole family. The special that I have to have, once a week, is the Peach Shake! Never had one anywhere else that was so good. The staff is young, well trained, and as wholesome as... More
