“My Peters Experience”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Good restaurant , don't make a habit of it. Fast food like any other fast food restaurant. The taste is good. The employees look kind of burnt but the service is generally good.

“Not as good as it used to be”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Peter's is a Calgary icon. What's good. the shakes are still the best you can buy and the selection of flavours is beyond comparison. The size.of the frys and onion rings is still bounteous, the burgers although the same, a single is still a patty and a half but they now tastes like a MacDonald burger.

“The Best Drive In in Southern Alberta”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

It is a must stop when we are traveling in the Calgary region. The food is excellent and the prices are very reasonable. They have the best milkshakes I have ever had.

The smoothies and renowned oversize portions are definitely the main attraction! I always love going there and will be visiting again soon! :)

“A Name that Doesn't Really Deliver, except the Shakes!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Peter's has been a forever Calgary drive-in phenomenon, and despite the so-so burger quality it's occasionally fun to drive across town for a Peter's burger. Invariably, after having done so, I ask myself why bother? Here's why....

First, the shakes are big, and with over a thousand iterations of flavor combinations they're a worthwhile purchase. The mixture is so thick you'll have a difficult time getting it through the straw, and therein lies the challenge. So, great shakes from a burger joint.

Second, when you order a 'single' burger, you get 1 and a half patties... they've been doing it that way forever. So, the single burger makes you feel like you got a deal.

Beyond that, the burger is just.... a saucy, production-line meatish product on a less-than-fresh bun that is filling.

Cash only, drive through, and an adjacent parking lot with picnic tables where you can feed a crow or two while enjoying a burger and shake from of one of Calgary's best known drive-in burger joints.
