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... read more

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

Yup, oh and a wait...but worth it... Lots of time on your hands, down around High River, feeling a little peakish? Then head to the Hitchin Post for ... ... ... A burger, shake and fries :)

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.
