“Delicious”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

We come from Wisconsin and take our dairy seriously. That being said it was unanimous that this was our best custard ever. Ted Drewes is on route 66 and has a variety of choices of custard. They even hand it to you upside down.

“not worth the hype”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

ok, maybe if you've never been to a big city and had loads of ice cream or custard, this place would be great. but being from a large city, I found this place mediocre at best. I guess the nostalgia is a hit but I found this place blah

“A must visit on Route 66”
Reviewed August 17, 2013

If you ever plan to motor west .... you must stop at Ted Drewes Frozen custard ... not just because the taste is great, but because it's a landmark on 66 .... it is there since 1929 ... so they must be doing somthing really good, we don't care what other people think, we liked it, we loved it, and hope all 66 travelers and others will visit this place and enjoy a scoop ... your 66 trip is more complete when you do .... :)

“Heaven in a cup”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

My entire family LOVES ice cream, and frozen custard is our favorite. We learned by making homemade ice cream that "custard" means you cook the eggs and milk before freezing and we think this is the best flavor.

Ted Drewes is a St Louis institution for a very good reason: their frozen custard is HEAVENLY. Our favorite flavor is "Tiramissou Concrete" - custard swirled with Ted Drewe's famous chocolate & marshmallow combo, chock full of pistachios. We could eat our weight in this delicious combo - but thankfully it's so satisfying that we do not.

We no longer live in the St Louis area, but every time we visit we have to make at least one trip to Ted Drewes.
