“Great Drive Through food”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

Peters has great shakes . The services is quick and friendly. Don't have too high of expectations, it's burgers and fries:) If you are passing and hungry, it's a fun place to stop

“Peters is THE place for a classic drive-thru burger experience”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

Fast, efficient service and great value. It's a fun, old-fashioned experience that takes me back to burger drive-ins as a kid. Whether you drive-thru or walk up to the window to place your order, you can be assured hot, fast food in no time.

“Great shakes and burgers”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you are on a diet stay away. If you like the taste of a good burger and big thick shakes, this is definitely the place for you. You won't leave feeling empty. It is an iconic place in Calgary. If you are here you have to go at least once.

“Overrated slop.”
Reviewed January 27, 2013

If you want a burger that is machine made from low quality frozen patties that are soaked in some kind of red sauce all mushy and tasteless this place is for you. Shudder.

“It's the milkshakes that bring you back”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

Meh. Peters has been around since dirt was invented, and they haven't changed much in that time.

The burgers and fries are plain. Nothing special and thrown together on an assembly line. The rings are boxed but tasty.

You don't go to Peters for burgers, though. None of us waits in line for an hour, sometimes longer in the summer, to pay cash only (don't forget that, or your date ends up buying lunch like mine did), for a so-so burger. Nope - you go for the shakes.

Mix up to 3 flavours to make your favourite. Chocolate - Mint - Marshmallow is mine. We've experimented over the years. It's fun.

Have dinner somewhere else - go to Peters for dessert :)
