Dessert

Before Shake Shack came along and made the whole “concrete” thing popular nationwide, there was Ted Drewes (it's said that Shake Shack's recipe is a straight knock-off). The family-owned joint has been slinging thick, frozen-custard delights out of a little white shack in St. Louis Heights since 1930, like cherry-topped, hot-fudge-drizzled Cardinal Sin and the Terramizzou with pistachios and an ultra-secret blend of chocolates. Ted's the no-brainer destination after Cards games, so the line is always packed -- but don't be intimidated, it never takes more than a few minutes to get through.
