A yummy treat

Saw this in a visitor's magazine and had to try it. We got the Hawaiian and Turtle. A bit expensive but good.

You MUST go to Ted Drews if you are in St Louis...don't let the line intimidate you it moves super fast. I grew up eating Ted Drews and am so glad we live close enough that I can treat my Girls to frozen custard on occasion as well. You don't want to miss out on this St Louis tradition

You can't come to St. Louis and NOT GO TO Ted Drewes. It's an iconic landmark sweet treat! Go many times a summer and recently strayed from my favorite The Dutchman to try the Twisted Caramel Sundae and YOW! Crazy awesome treat!! Always take out of towners here and also hit it after nights out on the town or Cards... More

A necessary route 66 stop. Go for a concrete (pistachio is awesome) so called because its so thick you turn it upside down and it doesn't move.

We visited the location on Chippewa St. Don't be worried at the huge amount of people in front of this place! It's very popular. This place was BUSY but for a Sat afternoon, all 6 windows were open and the service was fast!!! This a really good treat and prices aren't too high.

We absolutely loved our visit to this iconic treat establishment. My family easily found something that we enjoyed. Despite the crowd, we were served quickly. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Word of warning: downtown highways are a disaster and despite having GPS we still became lost driving there.

Out of town guests always insist we go to Ted Drewes when in town on a visit. We are more than happy to accommodate. Try it, you'll like it.

This was a fantastic place to go with the family and top off the night. It will throw you back to a time when days were simple. It is exactly what you picture doing on a summer night. It has something for everyone in the family for good prices,

Ted Drewes is such a family destination location for the best custard anywhere! I love the Dutchman's sundae with pecans and chocolate. The lines are long, but service is fast. And if you order a concrete they will turn it upside down for you. Lines move fast. Just plain custard is good too!

If you're in St. Louis in the summer, you must go to Ted Drewes! Best frozen custard ever! Everyone loves this place--families, couples, young people, old people--it really is a St. Louis institution. I like the plain old vanilla concrete. It's perfect! Hubby got the Root 66 (a play on words, as this Ted Drewes location is a Route 66... More
