Many people talk about how amazing Ted Drewes is, and that it's the best custard in the world. Don't get me wrong, Ted Drewes is VERY good, but it's more about the way it's a St. Louis landmark, and the way they put together specials such as the Christy. (My personal fav) Then again anyone can put vanilla ice cream on top of a warm brownie and drizzle it with warm caramel and chocolate...drooool. (I add pecans, 80 cents extra) It is definitely a must-visit if in STL, because it's just a good experience. Prices are reasonable, service is quick, and the employees are very friendly.

it's ted drewes! – I can not say anything bad about this place. Deliciousness if you like custards and ice cream. All we tried so far was excellent. The kids working there are friendly. Lines can seem long but you get through pretty fast as there are multiple windows you can order at.

What can I say that hasn't been said? – This is my first (and more than likely only) experience with frozen custard and I have to say it was great especially for a hot summer day.

The lines...well...what lines? There are so many open windows that you don't have to wait to get cooled down. I really like there is a sign on the side of the building listing what they offer because it was nice to be able to sit in my car for a bit to try to decide what I was going to get before hand. The place is also very clean especially outside.

Best frozen custard anywhere! – This is easily the best frozen custard anywhere. It's a St. Louis staple, and is one of the many things you cannot miss if driving through!

Nothing like Ted Drewe's – There's just nothing like Ted Drewes! Better to spport your local businesses than the big guys I always say. Locally owned and operated, Ted Drewes is the best frozen custard! Lines may be long on hot summer days, but one bite/lick/taste of Ted Drewe's frozen custard and you realize how great it tastes!

Hype – I just don't see what all the hype is about. St. Louis Custard Factory is way way way way way better. I'm not from St. Louis and i hear so much about it before I went, then i finally go and it was like i got a shake from Mc. Donalds. Not that special. Not only did I have to wait a long time to get my custard, it wasn't that good. No inside seating and just okay service. It's just hyped up.

A Great St. Louis Institution! – The best frozen custard in the universe is what they do at Ted Drewe's. Though they are famous for their concretes in a cup that hold a spoon when held upside down, I prefer my custard in a cone, dipped with chocolate. You can only get vanilla or chocolate if you want it in a cone, however, but thankfully, those are the best flavors in my opinion. If you don't want a cone then you have literally dozens of flavors to choose from. You can get a myriad of add ins and toppings but there is nothing better than the standard vanilla cone, chocolate dipped. Any visit to St. Louis must include a visit to this great American institution.

The BEST Custard! – Ted Drewes is the best frozen custard. It cannot be compared to ice cream as they are two completely different things! Drewes custard is so creamy and yummy and tastes wonderful just by itself. But you can mix in just about any flavor your little heart desires! Or if you're a traditional, you can have the flavors on top as a sundae. If it's your first time visiting though you must get a concrete and watch as it's handed to you upside down! Don't worry, it won't fall on your shoes, it's so thick! Although I wish there were more of them all over, the quality just wouldn't be the same and it wouldn't be a St. Louis only treasure. Many of the employees work there throughout high school and college. That tells you how well your custard is made, they know what they're doing! You can't get custard this good anywhere else!

Get chilled at Ted Drewes – I went to Ted Drewes last week-end with lots of curiosity and without any pre-plan. Being new to St. Louis - I was not aware of this place and all my way thought about concrete and custard :-)

I tried Chocolate (my favourite!!) concrete and it was good?being at the first ice-creme parlor at St. Louis ? it was not at all bad and enjoyed yummy concrete a lot on cold, winter evening with friends.
