It’s been awhile, but this is quite the year so far! I’ve been trying to find random places to stop and eat at, and Drumheller area was where the weekend cruise lead me to. Although this wasn’t the place I wanted to stop at, it was a fantastic and funny place for a quite burger and fries here at Asteroids just South of Drumheller in Rosedale!
I stopped here for a Pluto Bacon Cheeseburger thinking a Juno burger would be too small for me. These burgers are massive and they make it fresh to order so it does take a few minutes. I wished they had milkshakes here but it was unnecessary!
With the burger, thinking the fries would be like a fast food fry amount, their Large Fries come in a huge bowl! It was massive and crazy but the fries did taste great!
I told some old co-workers about this cruise and he asked me if I’ve tried Diana in Drumheller. I said I’ve been past it a million times, and stopped in once but I wasn’t feel great. So now I know more history about this, I’ll have to plan a return trip!

We made it to Drumheller again as we really like going to Royal Tyrrell Museum and usually when we go there, we need to eat, either before or after we go to the museum. This time, we decided to stop at Gus’s Corner Restaurant basically located in their downtown. It’s pretty easy to find with lots of parking.
For this dinner, we had ordered their House Lasagna which came in a big individual sized dish with layers of lasagna and baked to awesome! This lasagna had tons of meat sauce and cheese throughout, and of course cheese on top.
We also ordered their Chicken Club Wrap with crispy fried chicken, bacon, lettuce, tomato and cheese in a wrap, served with fries on the side. The fried chicken was really good – not greasy but crispy and juicy! It was quite a refreshing wrap and I enjoyed it!
Overall, we had a magnificent time here! The food was great, the service was minimal, but we didn’t need anything. The prices were at par with other places around town – so we had no complaints!

We actually didn’t know what to do one weekend and we were in the North end of Calgary when we suddenly remembered John Catucci on You Gotta Eat Here featured a place in Drumheller called Bernie & the Boys Bistro, so we decided to drive out there just for lunch! We got there and it’s on the side of downtown Drumheller where we’ve never ventured off to, so we’re glad this gave us an excuse to go to this side!
Once we got in, I knew immediately I wanted a Strawberry Milkshake, so I ordered one and my husband ordered an Almond Milkshake! Their milkshakes are awesome and made the good old school way! Thick and creamy and loaded with flavour! It brings me back to the past with such milkshakes!
We ordered some wings to share and we decided to try their Smokin’ Wings and it was smokin’ hot! For some reason my husband thought the hot wings are the “screaming or liquid magma or even their blair wing project”. I honestly think it’s hotter than their “hot” wings! It wasn’t just hot tasting either which made these wings awesome. They were spicy and extremely flavourful! They were so good – we ate it all up, even though our mouths couldn’t handle it!
I ordered their Hawaiian Burger which was one of the best burgers I’ve ever had! It was juicy and delightful! Tons of toppings but didn’t take away from the burger taste or experience. It was like a Hawaiian Pizza in a burger, with ham, pineapple and cheese with some pizza sauce! It was a great experience!
My husband ordered the NY Steak Sandwich which was very tender piece of steak, cooked to perfection and seasoned well. There’s nothing we can find to say negatively about this – so it was a great experience!
We love this place and like John Catucci says, “You Gotta Eat Here!”!! Even if you just stop in for a milkshake or just wings or something, I’m sure you won’t be disappointed!
