“Simply the best!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

TD's as St. Louisans call it, is a hometown favorite. Why? To start off with, it's got amazing frozen custard. Yum. Add toppings and make a concrete any which way you want it and you are in dessert heaven. I can't even tell you what my favorite concrete is. I just keep experimenting every time I go and it's been wonderful.
The true TDs experience comes when you go there on a hot summer night and sit on your car and eat some custard. Such is the sweet life.
You haven't quite experienced St. Louis until you have experienced TDs. It's tradition! Go!

“Excellent custard!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Besides being historic and on old Route 66, this is by far some of the best custard that anyone will ever eat. Went on a weeknight while vacationing in Saint Louis for some frozen deserts. It was crowded, as expected, but the service was quick and friendly. There are many, many options to choose from and everyone can find something that should suit them. A must stop, if anyone has the time while in Saint Louis!

“Still the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Don't know why frozen custard hasn't taken off all over the world (the name?), but I get it here every year during our annual pilgrimage to Busch Stadium. It's worth the drive out Route 66...every time.

“Delicious Custard, Many Options”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2014 via mobile

Ted Drewes was delicious and fast!
I ordered the Terramizzou sundae which was a frozen custard with a warm chocolate sauce and pistachios... YUM. Unfortunately, I ate it so fast I forgot to take a picture of it to post!
You will more than likely encounter a line because it's such a popular place, but super fast service makes it bearable.
Great place to go if you are from out of town!
