Best burger in calgary

Look past the long lineups and the lack of parking spaces. And you will experience the best non corporate/chain burger place in Calgary . So many combos for shakes that it will take forever to try them all. Burgers are decent size and tasty. Now that they take debt it makes it easier for those... read more

My parents take me here every time I visit Calgary because they knew the original owner. The food continues to be fantastic and the serving sizes are large. The single burger has two meat patties and the fries are really great. The shakes are very thick and hard to drink from a straw, but delicious as well. This is a... More

Great shakes! If you get fries, onions rings, or a banana split make sure you share it because they are huge. Single burgers are actually a patty and a half.

its the place to go...often car clubs meet here so you can see some awesome cards, Jepps or Tacoma's....the burgers are huge, way to many fries....but skip all that and jump into my favorite the Banana Split.!!!!!

The milkshakes are very good but as far as burgers go they are nothing special but in saying that they are good bang for the price.

We eat at Peter's regularly. They have the best fast food in Calgary and reasonable prices. My out of town visitors always want to go there. You buy the food and can eat at a picnic table or in your car in a nice parking area. I love the Burgers and the Milkshakes are the best you'll find anywhere.

Maybe I'm getting old, or maybe the quality is suffering... Peter's used to be my #1 pick when I had the money and was looking for something different but still easy. The burgers are a sloppy mess, but delicious. Shakes are hit and miss, but that depends on your flavour choice. Overall, I guess I am just looking for a... More

Tasty hamburgers, with a delicious creamy smooth milkshake. Over forty types of milkshakes to choose from. Well worth a try.

Great Calgary drive-in! Extremely popular among all age groups. Long line-ups but definitely worth the wait! Menu includes delicious burgers, hot dogs, fries, floats, ice cream cones, and drinks. Picnic tables provided in the back around the parking lot, or drive a few more minutes directly south and find a green space overlooking the Bow for a picnic.
