A St. Louis Institution

Always very good. We go every year. My favorite concrete is the butterscotch with chopped pecans. Two locations in STL.

The "All Shook Up" concrete is my goto order at Ted Drewes. I almost always order it. My wife tries all kinds but her favorite is the blueberry concrete. I have never been dissappointed no matter what I ordered or which store I was at, Chippewa or Grand. Even the plain custard cone is delicious.

Although this is frozen yogurt, it's better than your run of the mill frozen yogurt. I had the cardinal sin and it was delicious. The lines were out to the street on a Thursday night but they are quick to get the orders out. Worth a try.

You have to visit Ted Drewes Frozen Custard if you are visiting St. Louis! It is as famous as the Arch. It will be hard to decide what to order - but don't worry about it because everything is delicious!!!

Not only is it the best frozen custard in town but a fun place to be with lots of St. Louis natives as well out of town visitors. Lines always are long, but move very, very quickly.

Great frozen custard. Great menu items or ask to have them make your own creation. Always a good time for the family. We've never had a bad experience. The staff and the custard is always fantastic.
