“finest trees & custard in St. Louis”

Ted Drewes has been selling frozen custard and Christmas trees for decades, with an attention to quality that has made his trees and custard the finest in St. Louis. It all started when Ted Sr. opened his first ice cream store in Florida in 1929, followed the next year by an other store on Natural Bridge in St. Louis and the South Grand store in 1931. In 1941 the family opened a second south side stand which is the current Chippewa location, old route 66. By 1958, the south side stands were all that remained. According to Ted Jr., the success of the operation has brought it nationwide attention in the form of offers to franchise the stands. He said such offers pour in quite frequently. However he has never agreed to franchise and he says that he never will.

We were in St Louis for the weekend, and went twice. Both times, I got a concrete with brownies and tart cherries - so good! My husband got the "all shook up" which had bananas and Reese's. :) We can't wait for our next STL trip. Oh, and we both got "regulars" which were a little too big.

This was my first time having frozen custard. It was different. I had a raspberry concrete. My wife got turtle. We couldn't finish our mediums. Turns out, that's a lot of frozen custard.

It's as familiar and midwestern as these ice cream stands get. Better yet, it's a Route 66 staple. You order, they remember it by memory, and your dish is handed to you before you know it. A must-see and a St. Louis staple.

We had the mini concrete, mine with M&Ms. It was ok, but not outstanding. I'm glad we went because this is such a St Louis institution, but one visit is probably sufficient.

I had never had frozen custard before, and oh my good lord, I have been missing out. This was delicious. Super creamy, fast service, and very friendly.

This definitely lived up to the hype--we both got concretes and we got "minis" which were more than plenty--size of a small ice cream somewhere else.
