Came for a quick bite to eat this afternoon, as was recommended by clients who live in Drum. Ordered bacon cheese burger and fries, other ordered pulled pork sandwich. Both burgers were large but bland and not tasty. Fries with seasoning were incredibly salty. For...the amount of money we paid for two 40$ Not to mention 20 mins waiting we will never be back there and I seriously felt compelled to write this review. For the same style meal I ate at the burger baron the day before and paid 30$ for two similar meals and the baron in carstairs was much much better tasting.More

Was fun to find out that this was on the tv show you’ve got to eat here . So we had to visit ! A ton of unique milkshake flavors . All of them were delicious that we tried . Poutine was not as good...as I had hoped . I would stick to the more original burger that they offer . It was great . The others not so much . The staff was helpful and friendly . Would return even just for the milkshake .More

The food here is awesome, burgers are great and their Donairs are simply amazing. The portions are relatively large so usually the Donair was enough for example. The wife and I take the RV and stay at River Grove, we always make an effort to...pop in here. I'm all about the burgers and Donairs, the wife is into their 99+ flavours of milkshilks for those with a sweet tooth. They literally take a whole cake chunk and blend it into the milkshake. Do not miss out if you have never been here!More

We ate here on our family trip to Drumheller. I would give 2.5 stars if I could. Maybe it was an off night but it was just ok-ish. The onion rings and burgers were very very salty. The burger buns were also super soggy from...the sauce and burger drippings - this may not have been a problem if you were eating in restaurant right away that's because it's only take out right now, it was at least 15 minutes to get home and eat so it was a problem. The burger patties themselves were very good and portion sizes were good.More

Read reviews and decided to stop for a burgers we arrived after 8pm and most places were closing. Staff could barely be bothered to serve. And during Covid is take out only which would be helpful to know in advance.Chicken burger was so overcooked it...was not able to be eaten,hamburger was not made fresh and was slimy with all the sauce topped on it,every bite the patty just slid out from the bun.Threw it all in the garbage as it was not fit to be served to the wildlife or a dog. Absolutely the worst burger I have ever had.Save your money and protect yourself, go to McDonald's or A&W.More

picked up supper for my family. We got the pulled pork poutine, hot dogs for the boys, and a double G's special burger. The hot dogs were huge! Didn't realize the burger pattys were an inch thick, definitely didn't need a double!and literally dripping in...sauce! And so much food in the pulled pork poutine! We all loved everything!More

They take credit card. I didn't haven't to make a reservation. It's not that type of restaurant. If it was busy, you could just take the food to go and sit outside, at the park, etc.
