“Still good, not as great as I'd remembered”
Reviewed 4 February 2014

Hadn't been to Burger Wisconsin for over many years but tried it again three times (Mt. Eden location, Auckland) in January 2014.

Orders were always ready on time as we called about 10-15 mins. ahead on each occasion. Very fresh and no mistakes with any of the exceptions we'd asked for (e.g. no tomato, no salad). Forgot that the CCC (Chicken, Cranberry, Camembert) was done with deep fried chicken. Ordered it as a grilled chicken build your own the third time and it was good but not awesome.

The regular and kumara fries continue to be excellent and Burger Wisconsin still has the best garlic mayo we've had anywhere in NZ or other countries, for nearly 20 years running. We often get extra and keep it in the fridge for our own sandwiches/wraps later in the week.

On the fries/garlicmayo front: hard to beat. On the burger front, they were recently outdone by our experience at Velvet Burger (Dunedin), in my opinion. Would be interesting to see how Velvet Buger Auckland does by comparison. Look out, BW, don't just rest on your laurels.

“Nice burgers”
Reviewed 9 December 2013 via mobile

Wasn't overly impressed by their burgers. They are tasty but found it expensive for what you get. Also fries were average.

Don't eat burgers very often but these were big and fresh. Also recommend the kumara fries. Service was quick and friendly.

Reviewed 12 February 2013

I ate there more than 5 years ago and probably now is completely changed but anyway...the Rocket burger was delicious and has fully satisfied my appetite.
Nice fast food experience in Auckland

“Expected more flavour”
Reviewed 21 January 2013 via mobile

Burger Wisconsin is located on the busy ponsonby road and is graced with amazing views of the city skyline. I couldn't see any meal deal options. The burger itself was fresh and healthy my only compliant was the overall flavour was minimal compared to burger fuel or velvet burger.

I wouldn't rush back to try another but it is a healthier option compared to other fast food chains although it is expensive for the burger only.
