A colleague brought me here as a right of passage, made to have a burger - enjoyed every juicy well seasoned bite. Not quite fast food (especially lunch rush) but fast enough you could be in and out in 45 mins if you do not hum-n-haw on choosing your meal. I mention the cinnamon buns with a smile: heading to...

Staff were fantastic. Wife and son had the special chicken salad now both are sick, I had something different so did not get ill. Unfortunate for such friendly people.

Thank you for the review, as the chef & owner I always want to hear when a customer has a concern. We have many checks and balances in our food chain in the restaurant, and I personally went through our temperature check lists and product rotation this morning when your review came online. This is the first report of any... More

This hidden gem is great. the food is top quality and the service is fantastic. Went here to try the dill pickle soup that I saw on "you gotta eat here", and it was delicious. The service was so fast, this family/local run not chain restaurant has been doing it right for a long time. Would highly recommend this for... More

Go hungry! The helpings are very large. In fact we thought too large. They could scale down, and charge less. The food was very good. I had the fish tacos, and my husband had the chicken fried steak. Both great choices. The service was also good. I would recommend this restaurant, and we will be stopping again!

My friends parents have a cabin 45 minutes west of claresholm and we have started a new tradition of eating at Roy's place the last two years. This stop we only wanted their amazing cinnamon bun that comes in a large takeout container (because we wanted to eat at on the way home) The cinnamon bun is $7.40 but it... More

The main reason for stopping for a late lunch at Roy's is because of the quality of the food. Burger buns are baked on site, coleslaw is homemade, cinnamon buns are fresh out of the oven, fries are not out of a bag. This is such good food for a very good price. The restaurant is very clean and the... More

In this small town is an outstanding restaurant owned by a first rate chef who knows how to cook everything from homemade fish and chips to medium rare steak. Everything is fresh and beautifully presented. The service is superb by friendly staff who like what they do! Situated right on Hwg 2 going through Claresholm it is easy to find.... More

The food here is very good! The chef has been on a couple of Foodnetwork shows, and you can taste why. We had the Brisket Sandwich special, and the meat was so tender, and had nice bbq crispy bits in it. The cole slaw was delightful, crunchy and nicely spiced with dill. The brisket didn't have pronounced spice in it... More

We are a full service family style restaurant. We strive for fresh, in house made food. We say "EAT REAL FOOD" and the only way you can do that is by knowing what the ingredients are and that it does not come out of a package. Come to Roy's, Eat real food, and laugh a little!!
