By American standards Peter's Drive-In is more of a drive-through; actually, it's a double drive-through with one lane on each side of the building and a 50+ car parking lot beside it with some well placed picnic tables under pine trees. But, that aside, they do make one of the best burgers in Canada. Here it's all about the burgers and shakes as the signs will tell you. The burger buns are made especially for Peter's and they use real Canadian cheddar cheese. The burgers are made fresh and are never frozen from 100% whole Canadian grade "A" ground chuck with no preservatives or fillers. The Canadian grade "A" is actually a bit better than USDA standards. The burgers are flame-broiled and the shakes are made with real ice cream and fruit. My cheeseburger came with two beef patties, mustard, onions, relish and sauce. Those are the standard toppings for the cheeseburger. My cheeseburger or sauce burger was excellent! My vanilla milkshake was very good. Follow their old enter & exit signs that look like they came from a defunct 1970's amusement park in and out, and to the next-door lot. Restrooms are located @ the back of the building (the blue doors.) Cash here is king. Enjoy!
