Small Town Road Trip Suggestions?

Hey folks, going on a bit of a road trip with my band this weekend and we're hoping to find some gem places to stop in for lunch/dinner or a drink. Was hoping y'all had some recommendations for any of the following:

Edson, Wildwood, Evansburg, Breton, Rimbey, Bentley, Sylvan Lake, Innisfail, Bowden, Olds, Didsbury, Carstairs, Crossfield or Airdrie.

Dive suggestions very much welcome!

  1. Didsbury - k&w drive in is ok for burger, fries, shake. There is a bit of debate between them and Burger baron in Carstairs. You be the judge. I'm not saying they are 'gems' but worth consideration. Affordable.

    1. Sylvan Lake was home before we moved back to YYC. Bamboo Hut for fantastic Tom Yum - they don't deliver so eat in/take out only. Expect them to be busy. There is a bar strip around the corner from BH along Lakeshore - Chef Francisco's is popular with the tourists and locals.

      1. Definitely stop at Amato Gelato in Airdrie for some ice cream!!

        1. Edson - Mountain Pizza and Steakhouse. Standard steakhouse fare. It's been a few years so I hope they're still good! The mushroom caps were always fantastic.

          1. google 'marathon mouth' He travels a lot and blogs about hole in the wall food at hole in the wall places.
