Very different drive in experience. If your going on a weekend I would advice parking and going to the windows to order as it gets crazy busy! Far quicker doing it that way then waiting in the long line of cars. Weather depending though, it is Calgary. Burgers were okay but very similar to McDonald's. Their portion sizes however are...

A drive in that never disappoints. You can also walk up to the cashier to purchase your food (they have a decent sized parking lot for a drive in). It's a great sight to see all the employees busy working as it's always busy here. What an assembly line! The milkshakes are creamy, thick, and you can choose up to... More

This was once the best burger place in Calgary, people would come from far and wide, but now it's not good at all. There is always a line up, but not because it's busy, but because they are so slow. I waited in line for 20 minutes and there were only eight people in front of me, it was shocking.... More

An iconic standard in Calgary, that's true. Here's a few other things to note. When you order, go for burger (average), onion rings (great) and a shake (great). Do not order the fries. If you want a better food experience, go there when the lines are not long, such as practically any evening and weekends and especially holidays. Go to... More

Burgers are good. Fries are okay but the real reward for waiting in long lines is the ice cream and shakes. There is a reason the lines are sometimes long...

Large portions for the price - if i am being super honest. I like the burgers a lot, not so much a fan of the fries, i like mine a lot crispier than the way they serve them. The prices have gone up from my first few visits though. The milkshakes aren't anything "wow". Ill keep coming back for the... More

Peters is still one of the best drive through restaurants in Calgary. Had a cheese burger and split the order of onion rings. Had the best shake ever- chocolate and walnut. How could you go wrong with a sweetransfer treat like that.

Went through the drive through then changed my mind and sat down, I would describe the service as a bit abrupt and unfriendly, I ask for some salt she offers me a handful of sachets, like 20 maybe, I take one then she tells me to take the rest because she can't return them, they're in her hand - just...

I had never been here before, but heard rave reviews from many people. So finally stopped and picked up a burger and milk shake. Honestly, the burger wasn't really any better than any good restaurant burger, but better than your fast food places. The milk shake was super thick and took a while before you could get any up the... More
