Ted Drewes Frozen Custard-Chippewa

At the first hint of an oncoming heat wave, Ted Drewes becomes a genuine mecca for St. Louisans craving those famous concretes. Guests order at the window (even though the line moves quickly, it feels like you wait for an eternity), and their creation is prepared on the spot. Flavors range from the standards (strawberry, chocolate) to more exotic offerings (pomegranate, lime). Besides famous concretes, you can also order classic malts, shakes, sundaes, floats and ice-cream sodas. Ted Drewes has been serving up frozen goodness since the 1940s, so ordering your first frozen custard is a bona fide rite of passage.
