A Calgary landmark serving up good value. I particularly like the milkshakes, onion rings and fries.

What a cool place! I definitely felt transported back into a different era. We got milkshakes and onion rings. The milkshakes were huge and very good. Nice and thick. Good value for money.You can mix up to 3 flavours. The onion rings were great. So crispy. I'd love to go back and try the burgers and hot dog!

Every time we visit Calgary Peter's thick shake and hamburgers are a must have! Thick shake is worth the trip! Love the thick shakes! Handy access being situated on 16 avenue, trans canada highway

Price is reasonable and portions r huge but Nothing particularly outstanding in food quality department. Best thing is the wide variety of milk shakes. Historic Calgary icon.

Peter's has been around for decades. Always a line-up in the summer. They give you extras. If you ask for a double cheese, you'll get a double and 1/2. Portions substantial. They are always altering, expanding, thinking about better ways to serve their fans. Eat in the picnic area. Better yet, go to the hill above the Bow River and... More

Burgers are sloppy and tasty, the onion rings have just the perfect amount of grease and there are hundreds of milkshake combinations available to you.

Peters is a part of Calgary History. Very good fresh food. It is always fresh because this place is always super busy and lined up. 4 drive through lanes now I think

First time going to Peters and I was super impressed. There was minimal wait time in the drive in line, the service was great (they reviewed our order a couple of times to ensure they were making and receiving what we ordered) and the food was delicious. It wasn't greasy and it tasted great. We shared the poutine (which was... More

Peters has long been a fixture in Calgary. A delicious source of great burgers 🍔 and oversized fries 🍟. Don't order a large fries unless you are feeding your whole family. And their milkshakes are to die for, made with fresh flavors. My favourite is double banana and chocolate. I can hardly get it up the straw! Remember it is... More
