Sell Your Soul For Ted Drewes

If you wish to revel in the kingdom of earthly delights, you must come to do the Drewes. I ate here everyday of my seven day stay in STL and I miss it already. Warm weather brings 'em out, but the line moves quickly. Service is prompt but not very friendly. Prices are fair. The bathrooms are clean... read more

I do not know how they do it ... but when i get the ice cream urge the only cure i can find is Ted Drews even is you have to stand in an army line to get it ... It is part of the experience

Just traveled to Ted Drewes again yesterday. We live across the river, but if you're in St. Louis, Ted Drewes is well worth the stop. They may appear crowed, & the lines long, but I assure you they are well staffed, & amazingly fast. Their custard is rich and delicious, give it a try you won't be disappointed.

Growing up in St. Louis I was raised on Ted Drewes and it's just as good today as it was when I was a kid. The flavor is much richer than ice cream and you can have just about any topping blended into your Concrete. This is perfect stop after a long day at the zoo not far from here.... More

Ted Drewes is one of those places that is a landmark...when you live close by sometimes you forget to go. But when you do, it's always a treat! Hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and pecans!!!!! The line can look pretty intimidating but don't let it stop you, it moves fast! A little pricey but SO worth it.

I've been going there for 50 years. It is by far the best for concretes, sundaes or just plain frozen custard

Just one of those things you've got to do when in town. The hot fudge concrete is just fabulous. It's the creamy texture I think that does it for me - nothing compares. They're a bit pricey - a "large" concrete will set you back $6. It's not that large, but with sizes described as "mini" and "micro" below it... More

Our family very much enjoys Ted Drew's custard. I may be biased, as it's in my hometown, but they have so much variety and the service is always quick. (No matter how crazy long the lines look when you pull up)
