My family has been going to Peters Drive-in for the last 30 years. We love the burgers and the shakes in particular and we've always supported this Calgary Icon. In the past several months they have changed for the worse and are now understaffed to the point where a 30 minute wait for a milkshake is just not worth it.... More

Great Burger and fries. When we arrived, there were six cars ahead of us, but it was well worth the wait. I'm looking forward to going back again! The tagline is: The Drive-In You Can't Drive By, and that is so true.

Make sure you come extra hungry! Sizes are family portioned! Milkshakes are delicious while the burgers and fries are always hot and tasty!

Best burger in Calgary for a fast food drive-in. Been going to Peters' for 45 plus years. Best value of any of the drive-ins in Calgary.

Went with my friends and bought some Smoothies, they were great! Had a few burgers here but they weren't the best. The fries are good too a little better than the burgers. Good place to get fast food.

The year was 1967- it was summer - I was with my then girl friend - she had told of this place which the year before was allegedly voted the best hamburger in Canada. Whether it was or wasn't, it became the best hamburger in Canada for me. Over the years the taste, the texture, the temptation have remained the... More

I can't say much about the food, as I haven't ordered any in recent years, but the milkshakes are some of the best I have ever had. My favorite is the Maple Milkshake.

Hamburgers are great but fries and onion rings are soggy and not crisp. The service is slower than years past.

On a nice day it's always good to sit out at one of the dozens of picnic tables Peters has and watch the opportunistic gulls looking for some easy pickings. There's a nice little park that a friend and I enjoyed during our visit and our really good burgers. The iconic burgers, fries and shakes haven't changed in 30+ years.... More
