There is no better frozen custard in the entire St. Louis metro area, in my opinion, than Silky's. I cannot wait to get there with my family each time.

Custard is great, options are great, service is great, and it is not very expensive. I would recommend Silky's to anyone that is not lactose intolerant!

Have made it a tradition to stop by Silky's after having dinner almost right next door at Barney's. Love the frozen custard.

A stop at Silky's evokes so many memories. Here's a drive in, staffed by students, with huge crowds on warm summer nights. There's ample parking and plenty of informal sitting areas, just like the drive-ins from the past. The frozen custard is excellent and too many flavor combinations to describe. It's not exactly a Happy Days recreation, but close with... More

Silky's frozen custard never disappoints. Their unique recipe tastes like pure gold - Holden honey, that is, to be exact. Just a hint of honey makes the difference.

The drive through is pretty quick and they provide friendly service. We ordered the Mocha Chip concrete. The chunks of chocolate are really yummy and they add the perfect amount. Silkies concretes have never let me down-delicious every time!

I love all of the already created mixes because otherwise I get overwhelmed with the choices. Their cakes are terrific for birthdays, etc.
