I love this place. A total hole in the wall with the BEST custard in the world. Everything is delicious! Right on historic Route 66.

This is famous in St. LOUIS and the crowds are witness to this fact. I visited with my sister and two youngest grandchildren. We had spent four hours at the Zoo and thought this would help us cool off. I ordered the lemon crumb frozen custard. Maybe I was just too tired but all I tasted was bananas and crust.... More

Very delicious experience! Don't let the enormous lines scare you; they move very quickly! If you are in area, don't miss this family owned little sweet shop!

Great place to visit and always busy! The custard is great - I love the s'mores one! On each visit to St Louis (5 times) this is always somewhere I make sure I visit.....even if its not frozen custard weather!! Lots of flavours and mixes available so something for everyone.

Ted Drewe's frozen custard is wonderfully delicious and awesome for your taste buds. Freshly made frozen custard made into multiple flavors is just perfect for anytime, especially in a warm summer day. The multiple long lines at any time of the day is the testament to how incredibly addicting and delicious these treats are. Don't be discourage by the long... More

While we moved away from St Louis over 20 years ago, we never lost our love for Ted Drewes...there's a reason the line stretches for blocks on summer nights, and any time of year it's a must have if you're in the area! Delish! DQ Blizzards are poor man's substitute - you must try the real deal at Ted Drewes!

Don't let the long lines deter you! The staff members are very efficient and the service was exceptional. Great variety of menu items ranging from simple frozen custard to flavor-filled combinations. Parking is tight, but surrounding area has street parking. Dry ice available if you prefer to take it home. Safe neighborhood for families traveling through St Louis.

Thank Mike D
