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!

      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.

          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.

            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.
