Ted Drewes is famous for both its history/presence and its delicious custard. Accordingly, I posted a more detailed review about their menu. You may find it listed as the "BEST of the BEST...East to West" in the restaurant/dining reviews. This reviewer hopes to shed an even more favorable light, on the "experience" in and of itself. Ask anyone from St.... More

The frozen custard here is delicious. There was a line, but that just means that it is popular. It is worth the wait! Also, if you ask Siri, make sure you specify frozen custard...because she'll get confused.

IF you go to Ted Drews, you will always see a line there. But don't worry they are very quick on providing you with the best Frozen Custard in St Louis. They have been there for many years and there is a reason for that. Their service is great, their custard is unbelievable and the experience unique.

We used to to to 'Ted's' when it had car hops! That was waaaay back. It's bigger, but amazingly efficient, staffed by nice kids who rush around like bees to a hive. It hasn't lost it's neighborhood vibe and fun atmosphere. All the custard is vanilla, but the combinations are endless. The Concrete is the big attraction, but unless you... More

How can you go to St.Louis and not go to this historic place? Ted Drews is a classic throw back to an earlier day type place. Absolutely fantastic ice cream. To many choices to name but all are excellent.

Nothing better then the real thing in ice cream. Worth the wait if any, given the time of day. The Cristy was amazing, warm brownie, Carmel and chocolate fudge. Don't pass up the visit, you will regret it.

I had to see what all the hype was about, not I know. Creamiest, thickest custard ever. It was very hard to choose what I wanted, I wish I could have tasted it all. I settled for all shook up which has bananas and reeces. I added marshmallow, yummy! My husband just had a cone and was not as impressed... More

Ted Drew's...a St. Louis original...and only discovered by me this year. I highly recommend the Cardinal Sin. It's vanilla custard covered with hot fudge and a tart cherry sauce and it's so delightful I would drive many miles out of my way to have some. Another favorite is the Lemon Crumb...vanilla custard with lemon creme and graham crackers. So wonderful... More

Ted Drew's frozen custard is a St. Louis staple! Once you try it, you will crave it. There's tons of choices, but the Concrete (named that way because you can turn it upside down and it remains the same consistency and holding it upright) is a delicious, rich, creamy custard which is, or course, frozen The hard part is choosing...
