Excellent food

Comparable to Peter's Drive In, but a little more selection. We love the burgers and sides. The milkshakes with real fruit are to die for. Too bad they are closed in the winter. Oh and make sure you bring cash only.

Hitching Post is an experience! You have to go there. It serves great food. Sorry they are not open all year around. Their milkshakes are the best!

Best milkshakes but will usually have to wait for your food as it is so popular. Hamburgers are very good. Especially the mushroom burger.

When they are busy patience is needed but rewarded with home pressed burgers, great seasoned fries and real shakes. Favorites are the mushroom burger, seasoned fries, fried pickles and any shake. Not many around like this anymore.

While in town for the car show I went to the Hitchin Post, I had been there before. Good burger, really nice soft / moist bun, just the right amount of toppings. I had the double cheese burger and onion rings. Onion rings were the usual drive-in style you get and that is fine they were good. Good value and... More

Delicious food! Great fish and chicken strips! Really yummy onion rings as well. The food is so good and it's not very greasy with is wonderful. They package the meals very neatly which makes it easy to eat. Just rip the bag down in one corner, fold the rest down and you've got a meal on your lap without getting... More

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.
