ST. LOUIS TASTY INSTITUTION

Frozen custard, but in combinations and flavors that make it world class. Open year round, concretes (turn it upside down and it does not come out) are a legend. Don't worry about crowds--many are just trying to decide and many order taking windows.

The place is easy to get to, with side parking, with lots of menu pics. They have cones, for the classic, and other assorted flavors also. I would go there again. They are clean, also, with a safe atmosphere.

This truly is the best ice cream you can get. It is the original location on Chippewa. It isn't the greatest area in St Louis but you'll not notice since what they have is so good. Parking is limited in the summer months and you'll see people sitting on the beds of their pickups eating ice cream and relaxing before... More

Go out of your way for frozen custard? Well, yes, and STL isn't that big, so it's not that far. This is an institution, and while I am usually suspicious of institutions (a la Groucho about marriage), I was persuaded to go on a very hot day. Very very hot. Long line, I said it had better be worth it.... More

Fun outing to go to Ted Drewes. The choices of flavors and garnishes for frozen custard makes for a difficult decision! Once you decide and get your order, I recommend going across the street to eat it and enjoy the fun of watching the people and phenomenon of Ted Drewes. It's a reminder of days that entertainment was friends and... More

No one should leave St Louis without visitng Ted Drewe's. On a warm evening there are people everywhere eating custard and enjoying each other. It is a place like no other! My favorite is the Heath Bar Concrete although any thing there is terrific! Hope to see you there sometimg in the future!

Ted Drews only sells frozen custard. When I eat it I think that it is ice cream. It is great. There is always a line to be served but it is well worth the wait. I haven't been there for a long time but that is because I think there is a lot of calories in it and I'm trying... More

Great place to go after the baseball game, or for any reason. The lines move quickly. You can enjoy your treat there or take it with you. This isn't a restaurant. It's frozen custard in dozens of flavors, various sizes, with all kinds of toppings; a large variety of treats.

This is my favorite place to get ice cream in St. Louis. It's become a landmark and tradition to many people who live in St. Louis but it is also delicious. Don't be intimidated by the long lines in the summer. They move quickly and the service is fast. I love the concretes but honestly everything is great. If you... More
