Granted it was a few hours after eating at Zia's, but it's yummy for sure. Known for their Concretes, definitely need to try if first time going. Definitely recommend going, equal to The Meadows Frozen Custard in PA.

I live right by Ted Drew's and have been going to there for years. I have tried about everything on the menu and everything is absolutely delicious. Truly a delicious treat anytime of the year. Trying a concrete is a must.

I used to go to Ted Drews as a High School student at Cleveland High In South Saint Louis. A visit back there brought back many old memories. and Yes it was just as good as I remembered. My wife loved it also. The crowds where big but the lines moved quickly.

Never disappointed when ordering treats here! Am a long-standing visitor to St. Louis, and I always get to Drews at least once while in St. Louis. The BEST ice cream sundaes, especially the Hot Fudge! Bon Appetit!

After the waiter explained the difference between a sundae and a concrete, I ordered the Terramizzou concrete and it was wonderful. It had vanilla frozen yogurt and mixed with chocolate and pistachos. I would have liked a place to sit down while eating. Go for a small size as it is filling!!

This is a must stop on Route 66. We called in after lunch for dessert. It was just yummy. We had the 'concrete' and all three of us were really impressed. This is right on Route 66, which we were driving. I mentioned our road trip to the staff and they produced a keepsake menu, bumper sticker and other stickers.... More

It was so nice to visit such a neat place on route 66. The girl at the counter got a bit ill when I asked questions like "What is a concrete?" I had no idea. The custard was good. And the people were fun.

Thank Amy S
