I've been going to Peter's regularly since 1992, but not as often in recent years. This time I spent 10 minutes in the drive thru line with only 2 cars in front of me. Despite all of the speakers, no one took my order until...More

Nothing beats Peters' burgers and milkshakes! Soooo good! Went on a Saturday, and the line wasn't too bad. Maybe waited 15 minutes total. A must have when in this part of the city.

Long waits, gross food disgusting, Calgary should really bring the health board into this place, was told that was one of the best places in the city to go but it actuality it was a dried out barbeque sauce mess!

I think we get to go here maybe 2-3 times a year as it is not a close proximity where we live in the city but it's worth the 16 km drive as we get to have huge servings of fries, milk shake and the...More
