Good Food

Great family fare. Burgers fries shakes shrimp and more. Good honest home cooking. Home cut fries. Delicious burgers. Shakes and ice cream too. Often a wait during mid day lunch but well worth it.

The best mushroom burgers in the whole world. Great milkshakes too. Go! It's worth a trip to High River, just for this.

Extra good burgers and fries, topped off with a glorious milkshake. Best meal I have had in a long time without breaking the bank. This will be a regular with me and my family from now on.

Terrific Old Fashioned Drive-up Restaurant! Great shakes! Burgers are good but seem to have changed since last year. Seasonal operations only - closed in winter. Also closed Sundays (!!!) and Holidays (!!!) which is very strange as those are the times when people are out for day-trips and looking for outdoor things to do (such as lunch at a picnic... More

Only open during the summer, this wee hamburger stand is an oasis of goodness. The food is exactly the same year after year, which is perfect because it's great.

It's always a big deal here when the Hitchin' Post opens for the summer months. While I'd say they used to be better in the past it is still very good food. I always get a cheese burger, onions rings and vanilla shake. They also have real shakes (adding actually fruit instead of flavour). TIP: Call ahead, saves a lot... More
