Angel’s Drive In was established in 1999, and is “Calgary’s Best Kept Secret”.
Angel’s Drive in is the home of Bowness Burger, however, this restaurant has been home to multiple ice cream and food services.
Zaher is the current owner and he is passionate about local history and the interior of the diner is covered with memorable objects gathered around the community. He has collected old licence plates and pictures around Bowness that have become part of the drive in.
Angel’s Drive In was hit by the flood in 2013 which even though was a downfall for the business, it made room for great renovations.
Angel’s carries the tradition of ice cream, both soft and hard with no gluten or by-products. Milkshakes in Angel’s are a most! There are many different flavours and you can add real fruit as well.. Something not to miss out on.
Angel’s is very involved with the community and have received different certificates of appreciation for supporting local events. And have become part of the history in Bowness which is very treasured.
Customers organize some car shows in the parking lot of Angel’s. Even though it is not organized by the restaurant, people enjoy coming and hanging out showcasing their cars, some have been coming for years and they are willing to keep the tradition. There used to be live bands on the roof in summer time lighting up the place and giving a joyful night. The staff loves when customers feel like Angel’s is a second home to them, so the main goal is keeping the dinner as unique and homie as it could.
People won’t see much advertisement around social media or around town because they are determined to keep Angel’s uniqueness by sharing stories in the diner and having people in to enjoying a good meal with friends and family.
