“Tourist Friendly Yummy food & Ice cream: Must stop”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We stopped here and we loved it. We are in the pass a couple times a year and will make this our regular stop and have already had my Parents stop to have lunch and they loved it too. It is like a old soda shop style ordering and decor. The burgers aren't huge and ridiculous they are just perfect size. The bun it's served on is fresh and sure adds to the homemade patty. We added, onion rings, small ceasar salad, deep fried mushrooms and deep fried pickle spears with (homemade) spicy ranch ( the best I've ever had) made me keep eating the super tasty pickles even though I was full from all the fresh food we tried. ;-) :-) This place is great comfort food and the lovely lady that helped us was so friendly and we sure appreciated her genuine warm friendly smile!

“Always fresh & delicious food with friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

If you are in Blairemore, we recommend you try Side Trax Diner. We always stop here for lunch when we drive through from Alberta to BC and it's the only place we stop. If it's a Sunday (when they are closed) then we drive straight through without eating.

Locally owned by Janet & Peter, the service is excellent and they made delicious home made food fresh to order. You can have the usual burgers, fries, onion rings & milkshakes (delicious!) or try the fresh soup of the day, sandwich or "blue plate". The Blue Plate is a home made meal, such as roasted rosemary pork with mash potatoes & veggies or grilled port chop with roast potato & veggies. Soups vary from creamy potato, beef vegetable rice to split pea or creamy tomato.

Janet always has fresh homemade baking items to purchase and everything on the menu is reasonably priced.

A small (about 8 tables), clean, well run restaurant in Blairemore, making it the perfect stop for us. The inside is decorated "old fashioned" with music from the 60's matching the decor. There is also seating outside (picnic tables) if you chose to dine outside. There is take out as well.

Janet & Peter really care about your experience at Side Trax and it's nice to encounter in the restaurant business today.

Highly recommend!
