For those that don’t know Ted Drewes and missed the joke of the headline, this king of all dessert stops on old U.S. Route 66 is famous for its "concretes". A concrete is an extremely thick and cold frozen custard which is more rich and creamy than ice cream due to its use of eggs.

While there is no way anybody can stop and eat everywhere on any one trip along the Mother Road, I believe Ted Drewes is the one absolute must. Seriously…unless its the winter when it’s closed, if you don’t stop and get something at Ted Drewes, you have failed Route 66.
