Five Signature Drumheller Foods You Have To Try
Rich in history, Drumheller is home to things you won’t find anywhere else and that includes food! So with that said, here are some signature meals and exactly where you can find them in Drumheller.
1. Mammoth Burger from Bernie & The Boys
The Mammoth Burger is the stuff of local legends. It’s twenty-four ounces of tender meat. The Mammoth is so big, it has gained national fame on Food Network’s You Gotta Eat Here. Naturally with a burger this big, Bernie & The Boys created a food challenge – finish it and you’re forever enshrined in the “Mammoth Crew”. The burger goes well with one of Bernie & The Boys’ famous milkshakes. There’s something truly unique about eating a Mammoth Burger in the land where dinosaurs once roamed.
2. Flapjacks from Whifs Flapjack House
In a clever act of subversion, Whifs Flapjack House included everything they’re great at in their name: waffles, hamburgers, flapjacks and salads. Flapjacks are the comfort food you ought to have every morning and this is something Whifs understands. Get an order of flapjacks with a side of eggs and marvel at the train running around the track at the top of the room. It’s worthy entertainment.
3. Flathead Burger from Last Chance Saloon
Last Chance Saloon is a beloved Drumheller area institution, known for its one-of-a-kind atmosphere and delicious food options like the Flathead Burger. Part of what makes the Flathead Burger so great is the juxtaposition of eating a bison burger, made with locally sourced ingredients, in such an old-fashioned watering hole where you can drink out of mason jars and imagine what your life would have been like a century ago.
Start planning your summer memories.
