Stop in or drive through

You have to stop in and try it at least once. And don't forget to order onion rings and a delicious milkshake.

Onion rings, fries, and milkshakes are all awesome. You have to go here in the summer - it's great fun.

We go here as often as we can. Really great burgers of a generous size. They all come with a sauce unless you ask and it's pretty good.....not too spicy. For me the very best item is their milkshakes.Every flavour you could want And they will mix them if you want...I get maple and marshmallow. In summer or warm days... More

Iconic place in Calgary that's worth visiting. Be prepared to wait at peak times - there is always a line but service is very quick. So many combinations of shakes on offer - it's mind blowing and so thick it takes a while to get it up the straw! Absolutely delicious! Fries are a big serve and onion rings are... More

Honestly this is always been my go to place for milkshakes since i was first introduced. Always super thick, tons of flavors and you can mix flavors. The burgers are meh not the best. The fries can be good depending on the day. But the old ones used to be better they changed it up to be to much like... More

In years past I would have given Peter's 3 out of 5 stars. The burgers were pretty good, but there was usually a bit too much BBQ sauce, the sauce is a bit sweet and the fries were not great. They give you a patty and a half on their singles, so its pretty hearty. In the last few years... More

A few years ago, you used to get amazing burgers. Now with the the new owners everything is as cheap as possible...worse then McDonalds. They're Shakes are still amazing and fries are still some of the best

I'm usually quite happy with Peter's but this visit seemed like a typical Fast food joint, which I could have visited closer to my hotel. The food was okay, milkshakes were great, however the service was terrible. Burgers were sloppy, we ordered 2 small fries and only got one, the woman taking our order cut off the intercom while I...
