I was born and raised here in High River. I now live in a major North American city and I've yet to taste a mushroom burger that rivals those served up at this little red and white shack. Call in ahead or go down and kick it with the locals while you wait. Head over to George Lane Park to... More

This drive-in has been a High River institution for many years. Great burgers and fries as well as your usual milk shakes, sundaes, splits, etc. they close during the winter but come spring there are lineups once they reopen.

Have been going to this Hitchin Post since I was 7 :) best burgers and shakes around, onion rings are very good, fries I am not a fan of unless they are seasoned. It is best to call in your order and it is ready when you arrive.

I have been eating here during high school and since then and have yet to ever have a burger and shake as good as this. I am 57 years old so that tells you how long. Who cares about the location or the wait, the final result is good.

The Hitchin Post came into existence in the early 1970's by Bob and Maria Jones and I have been a customer right from the start. The business still is operated by one of their daughters. This gem prides itself on quality food and "real" ice cream for shakes, sundaes, etc. Over the years numerous "chain" players have opened up in... More

simply put, this drive through is a staple if you are in high river during the summer. The best burgers in town and easily one of the best shakes i have ever had. Mushroom gravy for the fries is brilliant, just remember to save some to put on your burger. Yum!
