“Old Style Classic”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Great, oversized burgers, fries, onion rings and real fruit shakes! Two very busy drive through lines and two walk up windows. Service very quick and friendly by people who work well together. This is a Calgary landmark open for many decades and it doesn't take long for you to understand the attraction. We have visited over and over for more than forty years. There is a large, landscaped parking area to enjoy your meal in your vehicle or at one of the many picnic tables. Bring your appetite!

“Awesome burgers, shakes and onion rings”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

On a nice day, it's as much of a social experience as it is a good burger and shake. Very efficient and friendly staff serve up great food. Not many burger joints offer this kind of selection of shakes these days and it's fun to mix and match 2-3 different flavours. Better come equipped with good sucking power though, these shakes are thick… Drive through or walk up with lots of parking and a bunch of picnic tables to hang out at if you want.

“still serving great burgers”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

I hadn't gone to Peters' for years but stopped by just before Christmas. The service was quick and we were through the drive through line in under 10 minutes. The only criticism is that they need to get better speakers on the order board - it's hard to hear and the shake order was wrong because they couldn't hear me. However, the triple cheese burger was as good as ever and the fries were better than they used to be. I'll be back to sample again.

“Retro drive in feel With excellent burgers and shakes.”
Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

If your in Calgary Peters Drive in is worth a visit. Great burgers and fabulous shakes.

Access can be difficult at peak times and no real place to eat in, but worth it I the end.

If they could make it a bit more "Happy Days" style then it would be a real cult place to go.

“Best double cheese burger in Canada”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

This is a classic burger place. Watching the busy staff is like a symphony of movement. The milkshakes are great. There is a large parking lot and some picnic tables to enjoy you meal.
