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.

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

These people only open spring,summer and fall. Also weather dependent. But, the mushroom burgers are the best.
