Any time you're in town, I suggest a stop for the best frozen custard on the planet! People have come all over the country, and for decades, to enjoy this tasty treat! I know, 'cause I'm one of those people! Once you try it, you'll return time and again too!

If you are not sure if you are a custard fan or not. You need to stop on here; Ted Drew's will convert you into. Yes Drew's custard fan for sure. They appear to always be busy. However what you do not see is mountain of employees there knocking out the orders. So don't let the business scare you away.... More

Driving through STL traffic is always made better by a stop at Ted Drewe's. The frozen custard is unique in so many ways. It's got heart and soul.

What a quaint place with great frozen custard! Never had it before, came here because of a roadfood.com recommendation. I had the cardinal sin concrete which I guess is what they call a super thick shake. Sour cherries and chocolate mixed into delicious frozen custard. My daughter got a sundae with raspberries, chocolate and macadamia nuts. She looked at me... More

Their service was excellent, fast and friendly. The atmosphere was fun and trendy. Ted Drew's ice cream was the greatest.

First, if you say this place isn't good, you haven't been there and you lied. I grew up in Saint Louis and hence grew up on Ted Drew's. It's a Saint Louis icon, what can I say. If you visit the city for a baseball game, you just have to go here afterwards. I've seen people come from across the... More

I "only" give this review 4 out of 5 stars because it's actually not my favorite custard. However, because it is an event to go there, even on a chilly December evening, and they still have The Great Pumpkin, my wife's favorite, I still rate it extremely high. My wife says "the only time to go to Ted Drew's is... More
