My wife and kids all have much bigger sweet teeth than I, so on our recent weekend getaway trip to St. Louis, I made sure a trip to Ted Drewes was part of our itinerary.

Love, Love, Love the frozen custard! I have tried other frozen custards and none even come close! We love to take some home (a quart or two) and top our fresh out-of-the-oven caramel apple tartlets with some vanilla or chocolate Ted Drewes frozen custard. Our guests are always quite pleased when we serve it for dessert!

As previous reviewers have mentioned, the long lines move quickly! Loved the concrete. This was a special treat.

When you pull up the lines may look overwhelming. Stop anyway! The wait is never long and the custard is delicious. To Go orders get a small block of dry ice to keep them until you get home... assuming that you are a local. Never a disappointment!

This place is perfect to take your out-of-town friends and family members if they are in Saint Louis. Their custard is great with countless choices, and the atmosphere is a must experience. The crowd is usually huge at night, but the lines go fast and I usually get my treats in 5-10 minutes. Just turn into the crowded parking lots.... More

A must stop for out of town visitors as well as locals. Line may look long but it moves fast. You will find many of your favorite flavors here.

This is a St. Louis original and if you live in St. Louis you pretty much must visit and have a "concrete" at least once per year. If you are visiting St. Louis, this is a great place for dessert when it is warm outside, and don't be afraid of the long lines - they move rapidly.

Don't let the crowds deter you from stopping. The crowds are there because the ice cream is beyond compare. The service is very fast and friendly. The price are surprisingly low.

Long lines but they moved pretty fast. The place was packed and when you taste their concretes you will know why. Its a recognized stop when you come to STL, if you don't stop here your trip will be incommplete! Just do it, your taste buds will thank you, your waist line, well not so much!

This is a "famous" place in St Louis. They have many different flavors of frozen custard. The place was very crowded but we got our order quickly. If you are in St Louis you have to try Ted Drewes.
