“Good ole burgers”
Reviewed 5 June 2014

Old fashioned burgers, and milkshakes! Fantastic tasting and good value for your money. Loads of choices especially for the milkshakes!! I recommend Peter's for a quick, tasty and somewhat messy (love it) meal! Get extra napkins!

“HAMBURGERS”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

This has been a traditional Hamburger place for years. In the past I believe it won the best Hamburger joint in Canada. You are never disappointed. It" on 16th Ave. North West on the South side of 16th Ave. I like them without their traditional sauce. Just my taste

Enjoy

“The drive in you should drive by...”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Peters is NOT like it was years ago in its hay day.. the burgers have gone down hill and the fried that were the saving grace are now also blah.
Peters was once a place that when out of town folk would stop over you would take them down for a burger fires and a shake.. starting about 4 years ago.. that is not the case anymore,
I have given them a retry every so often thinking maybe it was that one time it was bad.. no.. after teh last time i was there and the change of the fries.. i have not gone back.. asking others how it is many will not be going back.

“Fantastic food at "ole fashioned price"”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Peter's drive in has the thickest shakes, most delicious burgers and dogs, and hand made fries.
When they say large-the fries feed the whole family of 4. There is so skimping in serving size.
Price is very reasonable which is good whether you're feeding family, 2 of u or just yourself!!
If you haven't tried-take the time!

“Peter's Drive-In”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Took a 16 year old Home-Stay student from Brazil, attending High School in Calgary to Peter's Drive-In Restaurant for dinner. He thought it was a pretty 'cool place' & while standing in line waiting to place our order he especially enjoyed watching the employee using a commercial potato (fries) slicer. He was impressed with the serving sizes of burger/fries/onion rings & found everything very good. As it was a beautiful sunny evening we sat at one of the picnic tables across from the Drive-In & we were amazed at the number of vehicles going through the Take Out drive-in line.
