If you havent been to Peter's you should try it at least once. The burgers are excellent and the bag-o-fries is a great deal (the big onion rings is also a tasty option) but thing you HAVE to have is a Peter's milkshake. Dozens of...More

If you are looking for a hamburger, fries and milkshake, look no further. Peter's Drive-In is a must visit when in Calgary. Massive portions-be warned. They will also let you combine milk shake flavours (i.e. strawberry banana-yum).

I know they changed owners, and some say it’s not the same... but they still serve great burgers (with an extra half patty), and the milkshakes are great! Always lined up, but impressive how quickly they move cars through. It’s still a Calgary institution.

I know that this is tantamount to sacrilege, but the food at Peter's is only average. Yes, the shakes are great, but the burgers are midrange (even with that extra 1/2 patty on every single) and the fries are of the quality one would expect...More

This is a go to if you’re looking for a blast from the past experience but that about it. Burgers are below average. Fries are ok. Milkshake is mostly whip cream too and they’re nothing to write home about.
