A place for custard second to none. This classic is a St Louis staple. Park and walk up to the window and your dreams will come true.

Ted Drewes is a St. Louis establishment that everybody should visit. The frozen custard is amazing and before Christmas, they fill their parking lot with Christmas trees for purchase. I've lived in St. Louis my entire life and always loved coming here.

My fiancé and I visited Ted Drewes during the summer time and we absolutely loved it. Their custard prices are very reasonable being less than $8.00 for the two of us. They are very generous with their filling portions and their custard is very thick...More
