Peter's is a local landmark. In the summer the line ups get very long. I'm a transplant here so I could not tell you how long it has been here. The building looks very 1950's or early 60's. No inside sitting however you will find...More

Very tasty burger and onion rings. The shakes definitely are the most popular part of the joint. Love the different flavours you can add. And now you can use your debit card!

We have been here several times. The milkshakes are amazing! The food is okay. Giant portions - so it's good for hungry teens.

Many milkshake flavours available you can even pick multiple flavours to mix it up. Chocolate and caramel is oh so yummy! Burgers, fries and onion rings also on menu. Portion sizes are large so you might want to share particularly on the fries. This is...More

It's a city landmark, staple culture of a Calgary experience. The range of milkshake flavours are amazing. Despite being left in a hot car these are still thick after a round of mini golf. Will go back again soon!

the line ups are insane but so is the food and the price. Wow, reminds me so much of an old style drive in. The service was fast even though the lines were long. No indoor seating but there are picnic tables and it was...More

I remember going here when I was a child and the trip to get here seemed like it took forever. The burgers and secret bbq sauce are the same as it was way back then. The portions are very generous and the ice cream, milkshakes,...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
i would stop at peters drive-in whenever i was visiting the city. i would always order the fries, maybe have a burger, but i would always make a stop for the french fries. imagine my disappointment when i made a stop to peters drive-in, a couple of years back (when the new management/owers came in), the french fries were changed. they become the home cut/fresh cut fries, which meant they lost all their crispiness and taste. i will be visiting calgary soon and was wondering if it was worth stopping at peters drive-in for the fries? does anyone know if they've changed the french fries back to what they were before the new management/owners?
