The food at the Hitchin Post is always tasty and the portions are more than fair. Unfortunately, the attitude from the kitchen gets a little tiresome at times. Don't make the mistake of asking (after waiting 55 minutes!) how much longer your order is going to be - the reply will be less than friendly. As many others have said, only go here if you're not in a hurry.

Still worth the drive south from Calgary. They are busy for a reason (It's good!) and it's wise to call ahead with your order. We did just that last night - food for 13 people - and it was ready within minutes of our arrival. The order was exactly what we'd asked for and SO YUMMY. Juicy burgers with whatever fixin's you want, fries are good and they let you add the salt so it's to your liking. If you like mushrooms, their mushroom gravy is a must. Seriously though, where else can you get a real strawberry shake that is so thick you have to take the straw out to get it started? Definitely a family favorite.
The hours posted yesterday were 11am-7pm
There are a few picnic tables available but we like to grab our food and picnic at George Lane Park.

Nice burger but May 4 it was 40 minutes to get burger, sure they were busy, but not crazy busy. Won't stop again unless we have the time

I go for the fresh banana shake but I usually end up ordering a burger with fried onions and a side of fries with mushroom gravy, too! The soft ice cream is creamy and delicious. This place is crazy busy for a reason. You can call in your order ahead of time and that is a good thing!

what can be more fulfilling, than a nice drive down south of Calgary Alberta to an Old Fashion Dive through?? Nothing, their all beef hamburgers are a ledgend, with the fires...I personally love lots of ketchup.
The milk shakes are thick & creamy with flavors of all sorts including Tiger ice cream shake.The soft serve ice Cream is awesome!! I love when little children are trying as quickly as possible to lick the cones...and the ice cream melts all over their lettle hands! I personally give this place 5 ♦s . You can eat outside, as the have picnic tables and enjoy the mountain view.
They are open from April - 1st week in December, make sure you have cash, as they dont have a debit machine.... Bon appetit.
