It just isn't summer without a single burger and REAL strawberry milkshake from this delightful little spot. I don't live in High River now, but make a point of going at least once in the summer for my special treat. Best enjoyed in George Lane Park. If you're in a hurry, call ahead. Everything is made when you order so... More

Recommend the milkshakes and the deep fried mushrooms with ranch sauce. BRING CASH! They don't accept any other form of payment. Pick up some food and head to George Lane Park for an easy outing/picnic with the family.

Hitchin Post is a great spot for a shake and burger. The shakes are made from scratch with fresh ingredients, love the fresh strawberry. Burgers are excellent as well. Limit my trips each season but always get there for a treat.

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.
