Delicious, huge, tasty burgers! Great menu. Good sides. Friendly service. Not a long wait, easy to get a table or take away. Equally as good, if not better, than the “famous” Fergburger in Queenstown.

Large tasty burgers, reasonably priced with fast friendly service. A bit stuffy and smoky inside so recommend sitting outside (there are heaters).

Customer service, variety and quality are all spot on! The burgers are huge so I often opt for the $10 small, weak I know but a great option available. Though I am not a vegetarian, I often go for this option here because of how...More
