Drove to the two other locations before we found this one! Plenty of parking at this location! Fast service! I enjoyed my peach frozen custard "concrete". Big chunks of peaches in my concrete! A little pricey tho. 🍦

Great frozen custard. Prepare for a wait in line in the summer. It goes quickly and is worth the wait.

Best frozen custard in captivity. Always crowded any time of day. Line moves fast. Great service. End of story. Only problem is there are too many concoctions to choose from. What does one order. Go! You won't be disappointed.

1t's a St. Louis thing to visit Ted Drewes (find people in dressy evening wear and casual clothes), order a concrete (my favorite is Heath Bar) and find a place to sit in the parking lot and enjoy the best frozen yogurt ever! Be sure and have your server turn your concrete upside down!

Unbelievable! The people waiting in line was very crowded but there were at least 10 or more lines so each line was fairly short. The people inside were like an assembly line with each person assigned a specific task so the orders were filled rapidly. One person was peeling and cutting bananas for banana splits, others were preparing different items... More

The frozen custard is great, they have lots of different flavor sundaes and you can get different flavor concrete shakes that you can hold upside down and won't fall out. The lines might get long at times but they move quick and lot of people just stand there to eat their custard.

Ted Drews is in the south part of St. Louis and has been since the 1920s it is a historic place and must stop when visiting. Huge crowds large enough to shut the street down but they have many order windows so it goes pretty fast. Huge variety of frozen custard flavors, add ins, and sizes.

The frozen custard and the community feel are both equally excellent. Tons of variety and seasonal favorites as well.
