Large selection of frozen custard desserts. During nice weather, large crowds but worth the wait. Service is normally quick even with large crowds

Not to be missed. Best of the custom made frozen custard treats. Don't be scared off by a huge crowd - they are very fast

Yes it's true. They are officially the best in the world, right here in St Louis. Rich, creamy and delicious. A must try.

it's it a fun historic place to visit. I've had family live in the area in the 30 and 40's. We take a walk around the beautiful neighborhood then get a wonderful icecream.

It's hard to beat this St Louis classsic! Delicious combinations & decent prices -- last craving I had the mini custard with marshmallow, caramel & fudge. Docked one star because parking is limited and there is always a line, but it moves pretty fast.

The best custard I've had! Stop by the original location, kind of out of the way, but worth it! Lines move quickly, so don't be put off if they look busy!

Ted Drewes is an iconic custard stand in South St. Louis. We make it a habit to bring all out of town guests there for a concrete or sundae.

Ted Drewes is a St. Louis icon! Best custard ever. Kind family that donates and gives back to the community. If you can't find anything you like then you are not using all of your senses!

Ted Drew's is a convenient stop on beautiful Spring, Summer, or Fall evening! My favorite is a large chocolate yogurt with pecans mixed all the way through. I am never disappointed by the service or the smooth, tasty yogurt.
