The best frozen custard, bar none! If you like chocolate, ask for 'cone coat' on the top. It's the stuff they dip ice cream cones in to give them a hard chocolate shell. Once on top of your concrete it hardens and creates a crunchy,...More

Just came from Ted Drews. What I like is their hot fudge sundaes, but we usually take it home before eating it. So I ask for the hot fudge in a separate container, that way my ice cream is still solid when I get home....More

Don't get me wrong, Ted Drewes is good frozen custard, but the hype surrounding it is more the result of it being an STL tradition than the flavor of the custard. Personally I prefer the sundaes, but most others love the various flavored concretes where...More

Don't ever worry about stopping at Drewes when you see a huge crowd there. They move the lines so very quickly. They are amazing. Orders are prompt and accurate. Best Custard Around. It's a "must experience" when in St. Louis. And they ship.

When we visit St. Louis, it takes a lot to interfere with our getting to Ted Drewes. We are both originally from St. Louis, where Ted Drewes is an institution. It has to be experienced.
