Amazing!! Been eating the burgers here since 1972. Just a no brainer when you are in High River. Not open year round but certainly well worth the stop. Can take a bit for the order to be ready..be patient..certainly worth the wait

Great burgers, substantial portions, real fruit shakes. Lots of fried food but then sometimes you just need lots of fried food.

My husband and I used to live in High River and he worked right behind the Hitchin Post. He loved it!. We came back to High River last weekend and we had to stop in. While it is a little costly, the food was great, the portions of fries and onion rings were very generous and those fresh strawberry shakes... More

Seems like a popular spot, I had a mushroom cheeseburger for 6 bucks. If was just ok, good location. Quick service but again nothing to write home about.

Was at a convention for the w/e in High River & we stopped at this little drive in for a quick supper. There is only one picnic table in the front where you can sit-- most people I saw were doing take out -- to home/motel or whatever. My husband had a very good hamburger; I asked for a chicken...

After all of the amazing reviews we were looking forward to eating here. I was so disappointed. I had a cheeseburger, which I couldn't finish. The patty was soft and paste like which I found a bit yucky. The onion rings were rubbery but the fried mushrooms were good. I had a pina colada milkshake that had barely any flavour,... More

I have always heard about this tiny takeout hamburger joint in High River -- so was expecting something more than a small patty and some cheese on a store bought bun when I ordered my cheeseburger. Nothing more than the cheese or the meat.... and the patty didn't even fill the bun -- which was small. No lettuce, no onion,... More

Good burger but very expensive, $23 for 2 burger, 2 shakes and 1 fry. The strawberry shakes were excellent. Good place for a treat.

Freshly made burgers and the thickest shakes around. You can call ahead if not you will have a bit of a wait, but worth it.

This place has it ALL !! Its like a step back in time where you need to go to the window of a small "shack like" building to order. Everything looks shiny clean inside and the staff are excellent !! The BURGERS are the BEST EVER !!! My fav. is the Mushroom Burger with an order of Deep Fried Mushrooms... More
