“Better value than McDonald's”
Review of Burger King

Burger King
Ranked #292 of 359 Restaurants in Dunedin
Cuisines: American, Fast food
Restaurant details
Reviewed 13 November 2013

Despite the mass of negative opinions by customers on their Facebook site and here, I still think Burger King is pretty good. I've never had any issues with the food (granted, the salad isn't always fresh), I did stop eating chicken burgers as fried meat is just not tasty. For a LONG while it was the only fast food restaurant in Dunedin that served grilled meat hamburgers too! They have way better and more frequent deals than McDonald's does. Plus, they offer free refill! And their sundae is great (while the one at McDonald's is inedible - only in NZ though).

Onto the actual restaurant in question - Burger King in the Meridian Mall is a part of the shopping centre food court. Downsides of this are reduced opening hours - only until 5-ish each day apart Friday and a crowded space. However, the staff are very nice (especially since they've hired some new ones recently), the manager is efficient and on most occasions you get served in a reasonable amount of time. Not sure what else there's to ask for from a fast-food outlet (I do wish we had Wendy's too here in Dunedin though)...

We called in after 2000 and found the front part of the place cordoned off so any customers had to find seats along the side of the building. We couldn't find anywhere that hadn't been cleared and the assistant heaved a big sigh when I asked that the tables be cleared and wiped down so that we could eat.. The fries were luke warm so we took them back. The tea was cold. How bad does a service have to be before anyone pays attention. I wondered if maybe the usual population for this place were students and this meant that the "don't care" attitude was okay? Wake up BK - one days those students will have jobs and money and they certainly won't be back. Treat all your customers with respect and for goodness sake care about what you're doing.

Last night we thought we would be "Decandent" and try Turangi Burger King , well what a dissapointment it was.
The Chicken Burger Family meal was dreadful, soggy buns, obviously heated in a Microwave , the food was what I would feed to my Pigs , nothing like the pictures on their counter.
We could just not eat it as it made us feel ill, the staff were friendly but the place could have done with a good clean .We will "never" go back to Burger King or any other Burger joint.
