Our brother in law had told us about Pete's and how so many people came here as the best burger place in Calgary. We are new to Alberta and wanted to try it. We were not impressed with the quality of the burger at all. Won't be going back.

Peters is definitely a cool concept and some place that is very special to Calgary but other than that I doesn't have a whole lot to offer. All burger have and extra half of a patty in them so if you want a single you're getting one and a half and a double is more like a triple. The fries... More

Good service not great food. Boogies down the street makes way better burgers. I don't get why people line up for this quality of food.

Peters has been around a long time, and to me its really just hype. It lacks real quality that I would expect from a place with such a long history.

Yes---still extremely busy, and Yes--- huge drive thru line-ups, but with the latest ownership, something is a little less tasty, a little less inviting. Still a patti and a half---Yes! Overwhelming quantities of fries---Yes! Great variety and quality of milkshakes--Yes! But something is now missing, from the original years of award-winning burgers, but only if you have that to compare... More

Wh I first started dating my husband he loved to go to Peter's on a Friday night for his fix of the burgers and fries. That was 42 years ago! We don't go very often any more but have aways found you get a large amount of food for the money! This place has even expanded over the years because... More

The burgers are great. The fries have HUGE servings. And the milkshake choices are endless. Best on sunny days when you can eat outside

Peter's offers large generous servings for a decent price. This is an old-style drive-through that offers burgers, onion rings, fries, milkshakes and soft ice cream cones to eat in your car or at the picnic tables in their lot. We have been making this a regular stop for years as we pass through Calgary. This is far from health food... More

This place always has a huge line up! We always go there for the milkshakes and fries. If you're going in a big group, I would recommend you order separately because they tend to confuse orders. But the milkshakes are amazing, and the fries are abundant. Love this place!
