“Am I In the Line to Order?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Ted Drewes is so popular that people are lined up 10 deep at 10 plus windows that you are not sure whether you are in line to order. Don't worry, the service is quick and soon you will find yourself at the window to order a concrete of frozen custard with the desired toppings. It is one of our "must stop" when we are in St. Louis. In fact, the truth is we were in town for two nights and went both nights to get our favorite frozen custard.

“Wonderful treats!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My first time to Ted Drewes but not my last!. The menu of frozen treats is unbelievable. We had the Banana Split this time. I have been on this planet for over 65 years and have never had a better or LARGER banana split! Ever!!! It was delicious too. No scrimping here with custard, toppings and whipped cream.

“Frozen Custard for everyone”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

Have to go to Ted Drewes if you are in St. Louis and especially if it's hot out. They have many flavors, toppings, mixes, and sizes. Everyone will find something they will enjoy. It's a St. Louis landmark.
Seems to be busy all the time, however, the lines move pretty quickly.

“Just eat it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

I have only had what we call in California "frozen custard" but until now have not experienced the real thing. Outdoor seating on benches, no frills, and just plain worth it. Just go and eat it, that's all you need to know.

“Greatest Custard in Midwest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013

Whenever we're in St Louis we make a point to stop here for some peanut butter cup concretes. The prices are fair, the portions are generous, and the atmosphere is classic!
