  • Peter's Drive-In finally comes to Edmonton

    Iconic Peters’ Drive-In ‘very excited’ to announce Edmonton location

    Opening at 51 Ave between Gateway Blvd and Calgary Trail as early as this fall.
    I think I'm one of the few Albertans who has never eaten there before.

    I'm having a hard time envisioning this on 51st avenue. I wonder if it's really 48th which would make more sense

      Meh, never been a fan.....been once in the 80's. Milkshakes are fine, everything else is overrated. Might splurge on a milkshake for the little one in the summer, but that's it. Burgers are covered in a BBQ sauce or something similar. Their burgers remind me of the scene in the "Outsiders" when Johnny Boy is inhaling the burger and has a similar "bbq sauce" all over his face.

        Think this might be where they are building. North of the Cedar Park Inn on the east side of Calgary Trail across from the Toyota dealership.

        Have to admit, I really like their milkshakes.

          Iconic? Who are they as I never heard of them? I have heard and know of the Iconic 'Jack's Drive Through' in Spruce Grove that has been there for 1/2 + century.

            Makes sense, worst brownfield in the city! 2 hotels were supposed to be built there by now. But the way they're building hotels further South, I guess these fell by the way side. Btw, whatever did happen to that "New Westin" that was supposed to be built somewhere near Ellerslie Rd? I have a feeling that this "new Westin" actually got built in the West end as the "new Westin Element" hotel - attached to the new "Sheraton - Now Marriott - "Four Points."

              ^^Good point about Jack's Drive-In in Spruce Grove. Lots of parallels between Jack's and Peter's. Independent Alberta-based burger joints are becoming all too rare.

              If an Edmonton icon like the Italian Centre can open a store in Calgary, Peter's is more than welcome to open an outlet in Edmonton.

                Yes, that's exactly where this will be.

                  This is nice to see this location to be filled. It will definitely be a boost for the hotels nearby too.
                  LRT is our future, time to push forward.

                    I love Peters milkshakes, we spent a lot of time there when we had family living in Calgary, good food.

                      Outdoor dining space “in a park-like setting.”?

                          Leading to extreme disappointment upon seeing it in person.
