Yum.... I dont know what else to add, this was a great feed and we had a small burger each but it was so nice we were thinking about buying another one just to be piggish. The girl behind the counter was a little rude with her whole "we arent mcdonalds you know" comment when we asked about the combo... More

We had lunch here! What a lunch - all of us were bursting. The Kumara fries are awesome! We tried the motobites, which were good, but 2 is the limit - the youghurt relish sauce for them was amazing! Loved it on the fries too. The kids enjoyed the naked nuggets (what they called them) We enjoyed our huge tasty... More

OK they are slightly dearer than the other fast food chains but they are so much better in taste and quality!

Important point first. I think they should offer some choice on portion size, i.e. have a smaller version of the burger available. I saw a lot of large waistlines in NZ and there's no need to offer food at sizes that are only suitable for the calorific needs of athletes and heavy manual workers. Heart disease, diabetes, various cancers, all... More

Several online reviewers mentioned that this place had great burgers at low prices, so I decided to try it during a vacation in Rotorua. I paid $9.60 for a third pounder with cheese burger. The burger was decent but overpriced. There are better food options in the area.

On the way to the airport, we saw this place. The name sounded interesting, and there were people actually eating the "food" inside. My children ordered hamburgers and were served revolting mushy burgers with sour mayonnaise dolloped on top.

The ultimate burger destination. Excellent food & great service. Loud music made it hard to talk but wouldn't let that put us off going back. When will they open in Christchurch?
