They have the best milk shakes and soft ice cream in town. Their burgers are also very good and their portions are huge. They are also quick and efficient.

After driving down from Edmonton we called in for supper. The restaurant is very popular and the drive-in queues were long but moved quickly. We used the walk-up counter. Service was quick and friendly. The burger was very tasty but the fries a little disappointing even though they are fresh. We watched the potatoes being cut. Friends have told us... More

This is an iconic Calgary fast food joint that has been in business since forever..... It's claim to fame are its hamburgers and fries ... Went here for the first time many years ago & thoroughly enjoyed it .... It can be crowded especially on weekends at mealtime because it appears to be somewhat of a pilgrimage to so many... More

It took forever to get 2 burgers. This place isn't even close to what it used to be. They could service 5 times as many people in half the time.

Have been to Peter's many times over the years. Burgers are unique, saucy and soggy but some people love then. Just OK for me. Shakes are great. Going to Peter's is more like an event as the evolution of burger joints have surpassed them many times over. Go and see what the experience is really like.

I don't understand why people like this place, there is absolutely nothing special or great about it. The burgers are the frozen kind, you can just taste it, they are covered in a "secret" sauce which is just BBQ sauce. The fries will not excite you, nothing special there. The milkshakes are just ice cream, better wait 45 minutes before... More

The food is very good and the milk shake is amazing. It should be eaten with a spoon definently! The staff could be a little friendlier for a restaurant. But they are fast and yummy!

Major road construction paid for by the restaraunt. Do we need to say anything more. A Calgary tradition for decades. Burger heaven.
