What can I say other than there is no better sweet treat in St. Louis than Ted Drewes. If you have never been run there now! Order a Terra Mizzou or Cardinal Sin. You can't go wrong with anything!!

I can't believe I lived as long as I did in the area and never tried Ted Drewes! It's a must try and I'm not sure you can go wrong with anything you try. It does get busy, and parking gets a little, well next to impossible. But it's a fun waiting environment and delicious.

After a sweltering day at Grant's Farm we came here. It was a tad bit expensive but sooooooooooo delicious. All of the kids loved it. Definitely will go back.

Ted Drews has wonderful Frozen Custard. I love the Chocolate Concrete shake. To show that it is truly concrete, the person serving it to you will turn it upside down with no lid. A close friend of mine (who has traveled all over the United States) loves the Chocolate Chip Concrete. He told me that it is the best anywhere... More

On a hot afternoon, pull into Ted's and be greeted by a t-shirt clad fellow directing cars and helping them park - and it's a big lot! Walk up to the windows (a dozen or so) and order from their long menu. Quickly delivered - just plain yummm. I'll be back.

Ted Drewes has a reputation locally as a great place to go and get delicious custard. But don't let the long lines scare you away because this is a must visit whether passing through town or making a Route 66 pilgrimage. There are so many choices that you can't fail to find something that will please you.

Ted Drewes is a local favorite. It attracts so many customers they pack the front sidewalk and almost fall out into the street. But don't let the crowd intimidate you. There are many service windows, the service is fast and friendly and the wait is very short. There are many flavor mixes--choosing is hard! My favorite is the Dutchman Concrete,... More

If you are visiting St. Louis you are required to stop at Ted's and get a concrete. They server frozen custard (richer version of ice cream) in one flavor, vanilla. You can have is mixed with all kinds of topping into a thick milkshake called a concrete. They also have all the standard Ice Cream stand treats. You will love... More

Brought a friend from out of town after a Cardinals game. Perfect place to visit and get some great custard. The parking and crowd looks daunting if you haven't been there before, but be patient, the lines move fast, service is good, and there's more parking than you think. Good for visitors and for St. Louisans!!!

At Ted Drewes you can buy a one scoop cone, sundaes, or shakes. It is vanilla custard, made with honey in old fashion machines, but the selection is endless with the variety of add-ins. The fruit add-in are fresh not the syrupy ones. My favorite is Hawaiian Delight sundae with pineapple, coconut, and macadamia nuts. This comes as a sundae... More
