Ted Drewes custard is amazing! You could get any flavor you want or customize it. The people working the counters are always courteous and friendly. The lines are long at times, but don't let that stop you. They move quickly! Best custard I have ever had!!

Whether you are a native St Louisan or just visiting....Ted Drewes is a Must see. It is an old time frozen custard shop with an outstanding selection. Takes you back to the old days of drive up hangouts.

Best frozen custard ever. From the must have concrete to the sundae, you can't go wrong. This is custard NOT ice cream. Don't let the lines scare you, they move very fast and the team at Ted's is extremely efficient.

Other people can give you the Ted Drewes story, but as someone who literally was born three and a half miles from their Chippewa location, it is the ultimate comfort food. These days, at least 6-8 times a year, I drive from 25 miles out to get some of my hometown custard. Yes, there are ice cream stores closer. Yes,... More

People drive from miles around to experience both the atmosphere and frozen custard of Ted Drewes. The lines are often long, especially on summer evenings, but the wait is rarely very long because the Ted Drewes crew has achieved a perfect system for making their delicious frozen custard treats.

I visit every chance I get in the summer. I don't live near but when I am in St. Louis I try my hardest to visit Ted Drewes. I cannot recommend one thing because there are so many good things. The lines are long but they move rather fast and often before I can make up my mind about what... More
