Hidden Treasures: Ted Drewes Concrete Ice Cream in St. Louis

If you live in St. Louis, you know all about Ted Drewes. However, if you are just passing through, it’s worth a trip out of your way to stop and enjoy a Custard Concrete. Once you pay your first visit, you will never forget it.

Not only a hometown favorite, Ted Drewes is also known in the celeb-circuit. Elvis Presley use to fly into St. Louis just to stop in and today has a special custard concrete named after him, called the “All Shook Up.”

Ted Drewes has been in business since the South Grand store opened in 1931, by Ted’s father Ted Sr. The Chippewa store was added in 1941, on the old route 66 highway. To this day, both locations serve thousands of customers each year. It is a great way to cool off on those hot St. Louis summers.

Ted Drewes has two locations in St. Louis: 4224 South Grand Ave and 6726 Chippewa.
