I've been going to CB's since the 80's when I went to the elementary school next door. Burger and fries are the best, shakes are pretty decent too. Family run businesses, the owner, an older guy is hilarious! Prefer CB's to Peters' hands down.

Had read many good reviews from folks ranting and raving about this place but I just don't know what all the hype is about? Ordered a master burger (double patty), a fish burger, onion rings, family fries a medium Pina colada milkshake and a bottle of water. $29.00. The fish burger was good but unfortunately more bun than fish. The... More

The food was good, but a bit disappointed that the mushroom burger only had a few mushrooms on it. Fries were good with the seasoning salt. Service was fast and friendly. I get a kick out of the older gentleman that works there! This place has been around for several decades and is a family owned business. Don't go during... More

This legit drive inn restaurant is just great. Prices are good and the burgers are great! The staff are super friendly. Not seats and it is like and old A and W without the roller skates. I'll go back again and again.

We grew up not far from CB Drive inn and it was always a treat to get it for dinner. When we grew up and moved out it was a good stand-by meal in a hurry with the giant orders of fries and big burgers. Every time we go to Calgary we make sure to stop in and have some... More

I only had an order of onion rings, and that was enough. Frozen, left to sit to get cold, and about 6 rings! overpriced and terrible food.

Went and had a Milkshake and a Fries. Very friendly and nice staff. Seems to be a family run business, I enjoyed going here more than peters drive in. Didn't try the food besides the Fries (which were great). Would go back.

Everything tasted like frozen crap, burgers had no flavor, fries bland cheap fries from like superstore and the fish was just terrible couldn't even eat it, also was charged more then the menu prices and wasn't given a receipt...... A tv dinner would have been better

The fries are large crinkle cut with seasoning salt. They were crispy and fairly tasty. The burger - well the thin "meat" patties are the best no-name brand. Without flavour and a texture that resembles lard mixed with flour. Lots of toppings and sauce to make up for the lack of "beef". Had a rum and butter milkshake which was... More
