Generally it is brown at this temperature, although there are circumstances where it can reach that safe temperature and have some pink.
Yes, I realize that. Go look at people's Google reviews, where they have a picture of some patty and there's like one tiny pink spot on the edge and they act like they were shot.

Food safety is a function of temperature and time.

^^ Big time. Really the difference between a 165 degree burger and a safe 150 degree burger is about 45 seconds. And that 15 degrees makes a huge difference.

I stopped at the Regina Fuddrucker's last week. It was pretty good. Not as great as I remembered but a decent hamburger for sure.

Had the burger at lunch last week at Notable.
It was a classic cheeseburger, nothing too crazy or experimental.

I liked it, would order again, and would recommend. It wasn't overly spectacular by any means though.

7.5/10

I'd heard about it a few times in the past as being a must have, and the burger at The Guild definitely lived up to the hype.

to be fair on the "it wasnt overly spectacular" comment, you did order a classic

Hitchin' Post Celebrates 50 Years





Quote:
It's arguably one of the most iconic businesses in High River, or in Southern Alberta for that matter.

The Hitchin' Post turns 50 on Friday, August 16.

The burger stand hasn't always been at the same spot though.

In fact it began it's life at on the Southwest corner of Centre Street and Third Avenue where Servus Credit Union now stands.
Quote:
Lamoureux, says overall the menu hasn't changed a lot since her Mom and Dad, first opened in 1969.

"Uh, not really. I added a few things here and there and of course we're always trying to find new flavours of milk shakes and stuff. We've got lots of different kinds. I still mix the hamburger every morning. I get it fresh from Foothills Meats and pound it out by hand."

She says when it comes to burgers her big sellers are still the HP and Mushroom Burgers.
Quote:
One of the things that makes the Hitchin' Post different says Lamoureux is the fact they have nothing pre-cooked. "It's all fresh and made to order, when you order it. That's why it takes longer than the fast food chains."

She says at least once a week she's approached by someone offering to buy the businesses, or asking if she'd be interested in franchising it.

She says she just smiles and says "No," adding she has no plans to stop running the business and hopes when she is ready to move on her kids will take it over.

It is sad to see how the Hitchin' Post looks post flood.

It was nice with trees and some grass before, not it is barren and rocky.

Still enjoy taking the kids there when we go see my in-laws.

lived in High River briefly for about a year when I was in Kindergarten- would have been when it was in the old location I guess, but I don't remember it being there. we would come back many times over the years and I can only picture the current 1979 (40 years I guess!) location

So I finally went to Nainaís for a burger after years of hearing the accolades. I honestly wasnít that impressed. Did I just catch them on a bad day, or did I just build it up way too much in my head in advance of my visit?

I find that is often the case for most places.

What did you have? Stuffed or regular and what did you stuff it with?

I had the stuffed. It was the Mac and cheese burger one off the menu. I also went all out and had the poutine with it which was nothing to write home about but I was going for the burger.

The mac and cheese burger is the only one I've had there that I didn't like. I prefer a simple mushroom & swiss or cheddar & bacon.

Yeah I agree.
I think stuffed burgers are good when the ingredients are things that you would otherwise enjoy on a burger. The other stuff, like the mac and cheese, is just too much and too much of a gimmick.
I've liked the mushroom and swiss, but simply stuffing with cheese is also really good.

I don’t get the draw of stuffed burgers. You chew, and the stuff inside the patty tastes just like it would on top of the patty. Maybe the customer appreciates it more because they waited an extra 20 minutes and it’s cool.

I had a burger at Galaxie recently. It was pretty good. They brought mustard and relish separately in metal cups and I didn’t recognize the relish - perhaps homemade? Either way, a good burger.
