I heard about this place on the today show and I had to find it. It wasn't hard to find and the parking lot was small but people were coming and going. This is located on the old Route 66 road. There was a line out side the windows where you place your order. They also have a large menu... More

What's not to like about this St. Louis frozen custard favorite. Enough choices for everyone, and a 60 cent cone for toddlers or those who just want a taste. Exceptionally friendly service.

We stopped by here on our way down Route 66 to try the "concretes". We arrived before they opened and no one seemed to be around, but right when the "open" sign came on, people seemed to come out of the woodwork to get some famous frozen custard. Stop by here, you will NOT be disappointed.

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
