I was shocked and a bit skeptical when my brother suggested getting desert at Silky's. I always thought of the place as a Dairy Queen knock off, boy was I wrong. They have chocolate custard as well as vanilla, and the concrete I had was twice as heavy as Drewes, which I hold as the gold standard. The servers are... More

I love ice cream, and especially their 'lite' ice-cream. It is delish. They do a nice job of chopping their toppings and stir ins to. Sometimes Fritz's just had too big of chunks in their concretes, but not Silkys.

In the rare instance when we're all sober together, my friends and I can rely on Silky's. The employees are strangers when we order and family when we check out. Silky's ice cream is consistently sensational but even if it were subpar (which is it not) the location is so prime, it wouldn't even matter. LOVE THIS PLACE. Couldn't live... More

Love this place. Great on a summer night or drive thru for take home. They're lower fat "lite" custard. Can get anything basically added to it for a concrete

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
