This unpretentious drive-in restaurant serves up the best in classic American fast food in a vintage 1950s atmosphere. They allow you to mix as many flavors of their award-winning milkshakes as you want for your own personal combination, leading to such strange mixes as the chocolate-strawberry-bubble gum shake. It is best to arrive early, as line-ups for the drive-through windows can get long around noon and 6pm. A hamburger will cost between three and five dollars and a milkshake is CAD 2.50.
My husband and I went there for some good food after reading all of the amazing reviews on this place.
Food was a really good price, made a mistake an ordered a large fries for two people! What a waste ... There was enough to feed a small village.
Milkshakes are awesome. Burgers are the worst by far!!! The bread was soggy, tasted as though it was sitting for awhile... not fresh at all! Will not go back for the food, will go back for the milkshake!
This used to be a classic place to eat in calgary, but since the new owners took over they've done something to the food. Everything from the burgers to fries and shakes taste awful now. I'm never going back
As someone who was born and raised in Calgary, and grew up going to Peter's with family, I am shocked and saddened by the current quality of the food served. I've been going to Peter's for what seems like an eternity, even bringing my own children there for a treat. You can imagine how upset I was when I ordered the usual cheeseburger and milkshake a few weeks ago, and drank and ate something HORRIBLE. The burger patty has changed, and even the texture and apprearance of the "meat" is different. The milkshakes used to taste like the real flavour of whatever you ordered. Not this time... The orange flavoured shake tasted so artificial that I couldn't finish it. My teenaged son commented on how he went there last week for lunch, and the first thing out of his mouth was how it didn't taste the same. Sad to know that this is the case, but somehow relieved to know that I am not imagining this. Anyone know what has happened to Peter's? I used to take friends/family who were visiting there, and now would never do so as the quality/taste is horrible.
Local Calgarian and we usually go to Peters once a month for the last 15 years. The burgers have definatly changed. What was a good burger has now been replaced by a spongey off colored soya patty that the sauce just seems to lay on, not soak into like the old days. Tasteless piece of cheese layed on top. My favorite chocalate shake is now nearley weightless and has the consistency of whipped margerine. I would have to doubt if there is any icecream in it at all. It is however still thick but has not much taste to it. The onion rings when fresh are still delicious. Ill take my business elsewhere.
I just went for the first time ever, although I've heard about Peter's for a loooong time, and I ordered the Oreo milkshake and a cheeseburger, and I thought it was amazing! The burger had tons of sauce and onions and TWO patties that actually looked meaty rather than like a big patty of fat, unlike the burgers you get at McDonald's. I highly recommend the Oreo milkshake. The biggest thing I was worried about was the calories. How many calories do you suspect are in one of those milkshakes??
PS: I went around 3:00pm and the line-up wasn't bad at all. I had just enough time to scan over the menu!
The hamburgers are great and the portion of meat generous. We often make a special trip to that part of the city just to have one. Line-ups look long but the service is efficient. It wouldn't be a trip to Calgary without a stop at Peter's.
I have been to Peter's twice, and both times was nun to thrilled.
If you want a burger or hot dog maybe its good.
Some people can't eat pork or beef.
Bad limp tasteless fries,
forgotten things on our orders and cash only
ya its historic whatever.
get with the times.
cherry shake taste like cough syrup nasty
We ordered 2 cheese burgers and one small fry. Had it been a place to dine in, I would have alerted waitress to the cheese which was exposed on parts because it was dried out.
We asked for a vinegar to accompany my chips and found 7 vinegar, 12 Ketchup, 8 serviettes and 15 salts.
I wish I could return them rather than throwing them out. Please cut back on these and use the profit to better your famous foods.
I would definitely recommend Peters to anyone who visits Calgary; it will probably turn into the best part of your trip! The milkshakes are usually the best part, and the hamburgers are great for right after sports.
09/05/07 - wait time was 45 minutes for cold wormy fries and a so-so burger. It has been 5 years since I have been there and I don't remember it being so bad. Maybe I caught them on a bad night, but judging from the comments from people in line, they seemed to share my opinion. Always nice for nostalgic purposes though.
