“Run-of-the-Mill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I ate a Peter's burger recently. Not a large one, just a very ordinary one. Nothing to write home about.

“A Calgary Icon”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Not as great as it once was, but the Chocolate Shakes and Onion Rings are to die for. I'd skip the burger.

“Great fast food dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

They are the best drive through burger joint in Calgary. It is the only place I will order a milk shake because it is an authentic shake. Their burgers are very large and the single order of fries or onion rings is enough for a family of four. I would definitely recommend this restaurant if you are looking for a great fast food dining experience.

“mmm, Peters milkshakes!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Best milkshakes ever. Almost too thick to be sucked through a straw for the first 5 minutes.
Otherwise, great greasy burger joint. Rings are great. Fries really good. Single brugers are 1 1/2 patties.
Not a gourmet burger place, and old fashioned greay drive in. mmm.

“Okay food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Have been to Peter's twice. The first time was about 4 or 5 years ago and really enjoyed it.
Was able to go back about a year ago and thought it was just okay. The milkshakes are great but the burgers and fries are just okay. I certainly would not wait for very long in line for the food that is for sure. When we went the first time it was the place "to go" for burgers and fries!
It is good but just okay.
