Don't get too excited, because it's just a great "ice cream" stand run by very nice people. It's inexpensive and delicious desserts. It was worth the 20 minute drive.

Simply the best, seriously, not much more you can say. Though I really love the Dottie, you can't go wrong with anything you order. Try it all! Been coming here for years with my family. Some of the best childhood memories and I hope to continue the tradition with my family.

Thank you for being a long time customer. We love to see families at the custard stand. There are 3 generations of the Drewes family working there. More

Our family of four stopped at Ted Drewes during a weekend trip to Kansas City and St. Louis. Parking is pretty tough at the location we visited and you have to park along neighborhood streets. We each tried a different “concrete” mixture of custard and mix ins. The custard quickly melted and the concretes became more of a liquid form... More

Stopped here because everyone raved about the ice cream. It was good and they had different options but it's just ice cream. Nothing I would go out of my way for. I guess it's a stop you should do while in the St. Louis area just to say you did.

The line moves really fast, so don't let the length scare you off. If you want it to go, ask for dry ice and they will pack some dry ice in the bag which should get you home before it melts.

My husband and I recently visited and were not sure just what we were ordering.The young lady at the window helped us "first timers." When our order arrived it was heavenly. This frozen custard is creamy and delicious! We have visited many places for ice cream but this has to be the best. If you are a tourist, you must... More

I'm in my mid 30s and have been going here my whole life. Plenty of reviews vouch for the flavor, so let me give you some insider tips. Plan your trip: Busiest on weekend nights in the summer, but weeknights get busy, too. No posted closing time that I'm aware of. Very popular after Cardinals games any time they're in... More

Our family had just finished visiting the zoo and wanted a little adventure topper! Ted Drewes is very near the zoo and more than worth while to visit! Ted Drewes has every imaginable sundae, concrete, malt, and cone you can think of. And if they don't have what is listed, they'll make it anyway! To us native St. Louis ice... More

This is a place people talk about and I believe everyone who comes thru St Louis should try this place.. It is fun especially at night when it is VERY busy, but in the end it is just very average frozen custard. Go once.. enjoy.. no need to go back.
