      Used to be great - and very popular. Would sometimes stop there in the 1980s on ski trips.


      5 Decades of Stories From Peters’ Drive-In | Avenue Calgary

      February 8, 2017

      “Peters’ Drive-In became a nationally recognized burger joint in 1971 after it was awarded the “supreme” winner in The Canadian Magazine’s coast-to-coast burger taste test. The tasting team spent two days travelling from St. John’s to Victoria, sampling burgers from the 11 finalists. It was Peters’ Drive-In that won the Golden Flipper trophy — the second place winner was located in Montreal and the third place winner was located in Moncton.

      The awards are still coming in, too. Late last year, Peters’ Drive-In was recognized by the Matador Network as one of the 21 best burgers from around the world. (That’s probably because the burgers are never frozen, they are made fresh every day and they’re chain grilled.)

        It's more a cult than a good burger. True that comment about the patty's drowning in BBQ sauce.

              I love their milkshakes, they put everyone else's to shame. A burgers a burger imho, the best are always home made.
              My husband had one, it wasn't swimming in BBQ sauce..but he makes them so much better.

                    Don’t know what is - just what isn’t?

                    Yet other people say they are good burgers. Shocking!

                        That Burger Baron account just makes them look like a-holes.

                          It's not actually Burger Baron behind that account. And it is indeed occasionally hilarious.

                            One man's burger is another man's poison. So subjective, this sort of thing.

                              You know that Burger Baron isn't set up like a normal corporate structure, right, but various splinter groups. I remember reading an interesting article a number of years ago about how it's a fractured group of restaurants. It's entirely possible that one of those groups runs the Twitter account.

                                Come on. I think it's pretty obvious that the dude running that twitter account has no real affiliation with Burger Baron. But in case you have any doubt about that, there have been articles written on the subject: http://www.gigcity.ca/2016/05/28/bur...twitter-troll/
                                “Son, one day this will be an iconic structure shaping Edmonton’s skyline.”
