Ted Drewes Tips (6)

Ted Drewes: St. Louis Custard

Great local custard shop to cool you off during the humid St. Louis summer. Two locations in the city. Definately a can't miss on any trip here. Need proof; just take a look at all the Ted Drewes hats signed by celebrities that have stoped by.

Ted Drewes Frozen Custard: A St. Louis Institution

You can't really call it a restaurant - there are no tables, but there are a few benches you can sit on and eat the best frozen custard there is!

When you drive up, especially on a hot summer evening, it looks like the lines are really long. But Ted Drewes does a great job of taking your order and getting your treat in a prompt fashion. All those people you see in front of the shop are in constant movement - order, wait a couple of minutes, get a treat, enjoy!

Favorite Dish Ted Drewes is known for their concretes (invented long before DQ came up with the Blizzard), and they are tasty. But I'm partial to hot fudge, so I usually get a hot fudge sundae, which is just custard topped with hot fudge. No whipped cream or nuts (though you may be able to get them?) to dillute the flavor of the custard and the fudge. This year (2003) Ted Drewes started offerring caramel as a topping and I had a hot fudge and caramel sundae - Delicious!

Ted Drewes: Underwhelmed...

We tried Ted Drewes on a road trip through St. Louis. My mother had the Sin Sundae - a concrete or sundae with tart cherries and hot fudge and I had the Dottie - a concrete or sundae mint, chocolate, and macadamia nuts. Both were good, but it was 95 degrees and the concretes were melting quick. I was not overly impressed. We went to the one on S. Grand Blvd.

Ted Drewes Frozen Custard: A MUST SEE ACTIVITY...Good All Year 'Round!

I actually found it difficult whether I should place this tip under restaurants or "Must See" activities, because Ted Drewe's is definitely a "Must See" in St. Louis.

St. Louisians know that Ted Drewe's Frozen Custard is a true landmark in the city, ranking right up there with the Arch, Busch Stadium, and Forest Park.

It is open all year round and it is great! It is often just as crowded on a cold December evening as it is on a hot and humid summer day after a Cardinals' baseball game.

Favorite Dish Any Frozen Custard Concrete treat!! They hand it to you upside down and it does not fall out.
