Divine! Ted Drewes is an STL classic - try the Cardinal Sin (cherry & chocolate) - the concrete's are super thick - worth it!

Famous for frozen custard, Ted Drewes offers flavors and toppings too numerous to count, and is nearly as busy in the winter as in the peak warm weather. Try one of Ted Drewes concretes or a turtle sundae.
