Yummy! What a great place to stop for custard. At least on the warm April afternoon when we visited there was ample parking. Eye-catching retro design. And everyone was happy with their frozen treat! An amazing, almost confusingly abundant variety of choices.

Great place for frozen custard. Not as crowded as Ted Drewe's but with the same offerings. People are friendly and it's a great place to take the kids and dogs in the summertime.

Kinda bummed out by the concretes at this location. I have been twice and both times the toppings have been skimpy and not nearly full with custard. For the price you pay, it's a super bummer and there are better places to go.

Previous visits to the St. Louis area have not allowed us to hit any of the local frozen custard stands, but Fritz's came up close to where we were staying. I'll be out-front: I guess I don't like frozen custard. It's not surprising, as I tend to prefer less rich ice cream. That said, if you don't share my particular... More

I didn't see this in any of the recent reviews so thought I'd mention their light vanilla custard option. This is what I usually get mixed with some type of fruit and it is wonderful. I really cannot tell the difference in taste and encourage you to try it.

My favorites are strawberry concretes and banana splits. All there custard is really good. Kind of hard to find if you don't live in the area, but worth the trip.

This place has the smoothest ice cream! Buyer beware this place can be a little higher priced than your typical fast food place we got a small cookie shake and it ran us about 4.50. It was delicious. The place is usually slammed at night and seating is outdoors and normally limited.

Live nearby and love stopping here for a banana split or some other treat. This is the local place and the crowds get pretty big during the warm/hot sprint/summer evenings. If you're nearby and get the urge for ice cream, stop by. They have quite a large selection of sundaes. I've yet to try their custard pie, which you have... More

The custard here is really good. Everything I've had I've liked. I especially like the raspberry truffle and peach melba. Only negatives are the pricing--for 4 people you are usually talking at least $20 if not more. Also, lines can be long, although they usually move fast. Service is usually very friendly. I do like that you can get a... More

Good ice cream but pricing is all over the plsce. I ordered three concretes and it set me back $18. When I questioned why my Hawaiian wa so expensive, I was told that the nuts, pineapple, and bananas were extra. I bought a hawaiian, not a vanilla with a bunch of extras, this should be a package deal. Way too... More
