If ever you are in St. Louis, be sure to make a stop at this place! It has delicious frozen custard. It is so creamy and delicious. You can get it plain, or with mix in ( candy , cookies, etc). The one with the mix ins are called concretes. There are some concretes that they have with some... read more

Almost every local in the city knows about this place. Every summer night, you will see a gigantic crowd surrounding Ted Drewes. While the crowd looks overwhelming, the line actually goes pretty fast so don't get scared from the outside looks. My all-time go to fav is the strawberry sundae. The cream is soooo smooth, no place compares to its... More

My dad grew up here in St. Louis and always talked about this place. It is amazing! Definitely try the banana split or a concrete.

My family and I stopped in here for a dish of this frozen custard on a recent trip. Very busy place. Be prepared to stand in line. However, the custard was delicious. Smooth and creamy. Can be a little pricey but worth a stop as it is a St. Louis landmark.

What more can be said about Ted Drewes. The lines look long and intimidating but move fast and no one ever writes anything down. You get served this rich frozen custard with the freshest toppings or yummy chocolate/fudge. My fav is the Cardinal Sin - tart cherries and hot fudge. What a great combination. Enjoy.

First heard about this place on David Letterman show. Still looks like it did in the 50's They invented what DQ twenty years later called the "blizzard". The lines are often long but it never takes more than 10 minutes. I like the Terra Mizzou (something like the Italian dessert Tiramisu) but spelled like the Univ.of Mo nickname. You can't... More
