  • Ted Drewes' Chippewa location is closed for repairs.
Update: Our prayers has been answered: Ted Drewes has now reopened its Chippewa flagship. We've got the latest here.

Original post follows:



While everyone is focused on Notre Dame, we've got our own iconic building problems here in St. Louis — Ted Drewes on Chippewa is closed.

The landmark home of frozen custard has been shut down all week due to a waterline emergency, the company says.

It is expected to be closed again today. But all is not lost. The South Grand Boulevard location, which usually opens a little later in the season, has been activated so the business of delivering delicious turtles to the masses can continue.

Godspeed to crews at the Chippewa location. Our summer is in your hands.
