Bring your appetite

We went here cause of positive reviews we read online and we must say it lived up to the hype. The milk shakes were great, the food was good and the portions were immense. Would easily recommend this place to anyone with a large appetite just be aware the line ups are long.

Love their burger. Nothing fancy but good regular burger.There is always long lineups of cars. It is a very popular local burger joint. Their fries and shakes are also nice. Portion and taste both mentionable.the only thing is , you have to eat sitting outside or takeout.

I keep thinking of the burger and onion rings and wish they had a location in BC!! They are even in the entertainment book so remember to bring your coupon.

Very busy place on Friday night after movie. Long line up drive in but worth the wait. Love the onion rings and milk shakes. My husband loves the hamburger. Young good vibe.

The service is very professional in very clean conditions. You get your order cooked to order quickly. The food is all great quality. This is certainly someplace you should hit up on a road trip.

Peter's is a Calgary institution! Huge burgers and fries and milkshakes still made with fresh fruit! We bring all tourists to Peters and it is always a hit! This place is so good that there is a lineup rain or snow, day or night.

best drive threw food ever. This is a must. Portion sizes are huge food tastes great. But best of all is there shakes. But be aware there is no inside eating. All orders are to go, you can find lots of outdoor seating.
