The best frozen custard

If you pass up a chance to try Ted Drewes or enjoy some. Then you have made a huge mistake. Ted Drewes is the best cold treat on a hot summers day. It is a st louis classic. Just one taste and you're sure to agree it is second to none.

Great place to enjoy great custard..strawberry chocolate chip is great...my kids love to go here for a special treat. Service is beyond quick even when you see crowds. They will pack things in dry ice if needed. One of my favorite St. Louis treats.

Every flavor imaginable ! Quick service and always a nice crowd of people. Even though it looks too crowded from a distance, there's always a place to park. It's a quick turnover, so don't drive passed and miss it.

A piece of heaven for the taste buds as well as a sampling of St. Louis culture. Though the lines can be long, they move quickly and half the fun is people watching while waiting. For the true experience grab a seat on a park bench while savoring every bite of a "concrete"( my favorite being chocolate-a true milk chocolate... More

This is the one place where you will want to stand in line. I know that sounds weird but it's true. You never know who will show up, from baseball players to local celebrities.

Whether you are a native or an out of town visitor, you will love this one of a kind place. In the summer they sell "concretes" - a frozen custard that if turned up side down will not spill.. At the end of the year they transform into one of the best Christmas Tree lots ever! Service is polite, prompt... More

Best frozen custard in town (if not the world). The place is known for its thick shakes called "concretes," but I recommend that first-timers start with a cone or sundae, in order to experience the taste and texture of the custard itself. Then experience how it works as the main ingredient of a concrete. I prefer sundaes. My favorite is... More

This place has been beyond good since day 1. Best frozen custard I have tasted anywhere. Always a long line in good weather, but it moves quickly. This is a Bucket List place.

Very good ice cream, sundaes and shakes! Lots of different flavors. There's always a huge line, but it moves very quickly. You have to try it!
