I am not a local and have been looking forward to visiting Ted Drewes for a couple of years. I love all forms of frozen desserts and try them whenever I can. I have to say I do get not the acclaim. It was good-not great. I understand it's custard but just like ice cream to me. We were there... More

This roadside stand is a step back in time to when you went out for an ice cream with the whole family as an evening event. It's always crowded (part of the fun) and always tasty. The concretes are a great treat for out of town visitors who are always amazed when they tip them upside down and they don't... More

Took the MetroLink from Downtown to the Shrewsbury end-of-the-line station. Then walked about 3/4 mile to get there. Well worth the effort. Strawberry shortcake sundae was awesome!

I don't understand why so many people love this place. It's good but not worth the wait. Prices are decent but it's not a great ice cream. Culivars is so much better

We go to the Chippewa location all the time; it is the best ice cream ever! I love their mini fudge. Just the right amount and great creamy chewy chocolate.

What a quaint little place, with plenty of parking (thank goodness we could eat our custard in the warmth of our car!) we went to order and the staff were so friendly and helpful. I had a Kristy - a warm chocolate brownie covered with frozen custard and chocolate and caramel sauces, it was delicious, my partner chose strawberry and... More

If your idea of frozen custard is Dairy Queen then you will be astonished by Ted Drewes. If your idea of a quaint ice cream store is Bruster's then you will be astonished by Ted Drewes. Ted Drewes is everything other places imitate. It is not in a shopping mall. It is in a neighborhood. There are no others. It... More

Went to Ted Drewes on a visit to STL because of it's iconic status and route 66 attraction. For a late March day, the place was very busy, but they serviced the customers quickly so the wait was short. When our Concretes were served, the lady turned them upside-down before handing them out the window to us. And yes, the... More
