Ted Drewes has been selling frozen custard for over 80 years and has become a popular treat for St. Louisans and tourists to enjoy after visiting the Arch, the Fox and Muny Theaters, the St. Louis Zoo, or a Cardinal’s baseball game. Along with the delicious hot fudge sundae, Ted’s “concrete” has been the most popular treat at the custard stands. The concrete, which was created in 1959, is a malt or shake so thick that it is served upside down.

Excellent Custard not so good Orange slush

Even at 530 on warm Saturday the lines are long, but they move fast. They are very efficient at what they do. The custard is good, so go try it!
