A Calgary institution, Peter's Drive-In maintains its stellar reputation as a great place for a really good burger, amazing union rings & real ice cream milkshakes. Excellent value for the money with generally quick service despite the hungry hordes that usually surround the place. Go at off hours if you hate waiting.

This place has become way to pricey for my taste. In case you did not know the original owner does not own it anymore. Prices have gone through the roof. 5 dollars for milkshakes and don't even start on how much a single burger costs now.

The burger place always gets rave reviews from the locals and sure enough its drive through window is always backed up right through the lunch hour. However, my experience is that this restaurant does not deserve the reputation. I wondered if it is riding on its reputation from past decades or whether its allure is its resemblance to the old...

Peters...As a native Calgarian, my life is peppered with fond memories of a burger & a milkshake at Peters. Dates with my wife, long before she was my wife. Stops late night after an evening with the guys, stops on a hot day just for a milkshake. Peters is an icon in Calgary, and also much of Western Canada. Walk... More

Burgers are just ok. Big and warm and gooey and Alberts beef so not bad just messy. Love the shakes. Don't know why. Thick and sweet. Fries just ok. Get a shake tho

Why do people keep raving about this place. They must be overcome with the nostalgia to actually taste what they are consuming. I know this place has a long history and 20 years ago, I remember this burger stop as being something to try out with good carefully prepared food of quality. Now, though, the card board and paper it... More

I have lived in Calgary for well over 15 years and my wife was born in Calgary. Neither of us had ever visits Peter's. This made for a fun trip to enjoy the legendary burger and milkshake. Two words: Tasty and huge! The burgers are amazing, the milkshakes were incredible and the volume of fries was epic. Can't believe it... More
