When I worked in St. Louis, we would try to go here twice a month as a special treat. My boss realized how much I enjoyed Ted Drewes that when I went away with the military for a few months, he packed some in dry ice (along with a six pack of rootbeer) and had it sent to me! The... More

It is a St. Louis Staple. You have to try it! Try the Cardinal Sin if you like chocolate and cherries in your frozen custard.

Maybe it's because I grew up here, but I really love Ted Drewes. It's a nostalgia thing. My favorite is The Dutchman sundae, followed up CLOSELY by the new Pretzel Carmel thingy.... If you love Route 66 and are making stops across the country, make this one of them. It's been voted best ice cream in the WORLD.

Best Ice Cream in St. Louis area. The lines might be a little long but it moves fast and it is worth it.
