Great ice cream and shakes

Peters has great ice cream and shakes. Be prepared for the long line ups as it is a very popular place. I can't comment on the food because I only go there for the ice cream. It is nice and creamy - no icy stuff here! Quite a few picnic tables around and fairly good parking. Two drive thru... read more

Every time we visit Calgary and we have been coming since the 1970 era, we visit Peter's for their mouthwatering hamburgers and home made french fries along with their old fashioned milkshakes in at least 20 varieties. We love Peter's. Never had a better burger anywhere else in North America, Europe or Asia. We are so happy they are coming... More

Great prices and very generous portions. Milkshakes are amazing - so thick and a huge assortment of flavours. This is not a sit down burger place. You order through the drive through or you can walk up to the window. There is a large area outside with picnic tables and parking spots. You can eat there or take your food... More

Milkshakes are great here... and if you are visiting Calgary you have to at least stop here to say that you did. Definitely an iconic Calgary drive in restaurant! Burgers and fries are delicious (others have varying opinions, but I love them for the pure fun of it!). A "small" fries will feed a small village.

A Calgary Icon. Busy most days, but even busier when the Prime Minister does the drive thru. Single burger has 2 patties, Double burger has 3 patties, etc. Thick milk shakes and the side orders of fries and rings are very large (good to share).

Thought the long wait meant great food. Not totally correct, but ok. Milkshakes are to die for, hands down! Oversized French fries - whoa , share these! Hamburgers - not so much. Weird sauce on them, very sloppy. Hotdogs great!!

I have been going to Peter's Drive-In since moving to Calgary as a little girl in the early 80's and have ordered the same chocolate-banana milkshake every time I visit.

The only things worth getting is the ice cream. The burgers used to be great but after the owner retired it has never been the same.
