Prior to Jul 13 trip to NZ I looked up restaurants in QT. Based on the reviews I admit to being skeptical. Seriously a burger bar no. 1 (at the time) for restaurants in QT. Tripadvisor how can this be? So I had to see for myself…

First attempt to go, the family was hungry and deterred by the “queue” hanging out the front of the shop. We went somewhere else. Following day same thing. Eventually, decided to have the courage to join the queue and found that it is actually people who had ordered and were chilling out waiting for their feed. I was clearly told the expected wait time prior to purchasing so unless this is massively incorrect then don’t whine about the time it takes… if you want a “buy-it-now” burger then you won’t be happy.

Yes you have to wait for the burger to be made but there are worse places to wait. Atmosphere anyone? Grab a seat when you can and get a coldie and watch as you realise that the place is reasonably well organized chaos. The girls walking around the bar checking if everything is OK is a great idea and is a bit like a triage nurse… the guy in the corner who’s eyes are starting to dart about as if he missed his number, let’s go talk to him and find out if he is ok type of thing…

Anyway, the burger – is it really that good? Well much to my surprise the burger I had actually was. Yes it is big. So don’t order a giant burger and then complain about its size.

Overall, would I have another Fergberger? Definitely. Is it the best feed in QT? Based on other meals we had it would be surprisingly well ranked but is it the best, I am not sure about that… it certainly is a great burger served in a great atmosphere..

Fergburger definitely lived up to the hype. Awesome burgers and huge. No need for sides although I was definitely tempted by the wasabi mayonnaise.

Again, drawn by all the hype. Had to try it once when in Queenstown.
Nothing spectacular we felt except the sheer size and picture taking were fun. No proper seating and the queue was long.
Still, it was an experience.
Now Fergbaker is another story....Yum!!

This is a must when in Queenstown. It is in the middle of town. It has such a great selection of burgers. The Blue Cheese Burger is perfect. Great place to get a burger to bring to the beach to eat and watch people.
