I had never had frozen custard before and after a visit to this place, that all has changed. A friend told me that this was a must see destination. I ordered the Hawaiian concrete. So delicious! I will definitely be coming back when I'm in the area again. Too bad I have to wait a year.

Wow! We went to say we'd been. Things like this rarely live up to the hype, so we had low expectations. It's cold outside we weren't even sure they'd be open. Oh my, there was line to enter the parking lot card parked down the streets and people everywhere. We made our way to the line, I just knew it... More

Last night we enjoyed the most delicious ice cream we've had in a long time. The "concrete" is a good option to order. Even on a chilly night, Ted Drewes is a fun experience with heat lamps above your head as you're ordering. It's worth the wait even when the line gets long. Some nights, however, the wait is less...

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
