Ted Drewes, St. Louis

A proud son of St. Louis, Ted Drewes started making frozen custard in 1929, opened his first Missouri shop in 1930, and soon became a local icon. The two shops in his name are still in the family, run by Ted Drewes, Jr. While the newer flagship takes only a short winter hiatus, their older location on South Grand Boulevard keeps summer hours. (Both locations open in the weeks before Christmas, when their parking lots turn into tree markets.)

Original location open early May through Labor Day. teddrewes.com
