Reliable food stop between Jasper and Edmonton

It is a nice highway between Jasper and Edmonton. We were going to stop at Hinton but we made good time and it wasn’t a required stop. So we continued on to Edson. We drove through the town and came across a Smitty’s at the far end of the town. We have come to rely on Smitty’s for good... read more

the service is good, and the food is exactly what you expect from a place like this. there is lots of parking and you can watch people come and go at the very busy gas station across the parking lot.

We had the blueberry pancakes. They were light and fluffy. The blueberries were fresh, with just enough whip cream.

Good price, great food, strong coffee, and awesome and friendly staff! Right off the highway, good location without having to search through town!

I had the pleasure of meeting my daughter's boyfriend's parents who were visiting from Saskatchewan. Unfortunately we chose Smitty's for our lunch meeting. I was working and normally have an hour for lunch. The service was terrible as the waitresses didn't seem to know which area they were serving. After waiting about 10 minutes, we got a coffee. I got... More

Pretty much what you would expect, nothing special about the place to make it stand out. If your traveling thru town you would probably stop here as it is in a great location on the east side of town. I would not say anything good or bad about the place just the same menu from coast to coast so if... More

We went there for brekky. The eggs were overdone the first time, and underdone when we sent them back. The toast was not actually toasted and when I asked for butter, the waitress seemed hesitant to oblige. The pan fries had been warming for some time, soggy and nondescript. An altogether unpalatable meal.

I was driving from Kamloops to Edmonton, and was beginning to get a bit tired, so I stopped at Smitty's for supper. I ordered breaded veal cutlets which I enjoyed. Quiet and clean, it's located at the Eastern end of Edson right on the highway. After dinner I left, refreshed. Service was quick and pleasant. Good value.
