Good Burger

Got the 'Cow Pat', the basic and most simple burger on the menu. The size is pretty big for a burger but was delicious. Would also recommend a salted caramel brownie and pair it with a raspberry soda.

This burger was massive!! but definitely not the best one I've ever had. They stuff it full of vegetables and a huge bun so the actual burger is almost lost. Delicious if you're looking for a salad on a bun with a bit of meat.

Went here with some friends and could not fault the burgers we all received. There is a wait if busy but we phoned in advance and when we arrived our burgers were ready.

We grabbed a bite to eat here on Sunday for lunch after a recommendation from a friend that’s been coming here for years. I think we were expecting amazing things but left feeling a bit underwhelmed. My husband had one of the big beef burgers and I had a piece of fish and some kumara fries. The fries were great,... More

Really good burgers, good value for money. Very friendly staff as well, take the time for small talk good fun! Good music, gotta love the oldies from the 80's. No 5 stars though, just one little thing that's actually nobody's fault, but needs attention. Peanut allergy. My peanut-allergic boyfriend ordered a burger (the non-satay-sauce one of course) but got really... More

Don't expect too many frills, this is food served from a van with outdoor seating on benches. However the burgers are huge, tasty and great value and the atmosphere is welcomingly relaxed. I had the 'Cowpat' and my wife the 'Off The Hook' (fish) accompanied by potato wedges. If you want a cheap meal in relaxed surroundings then this pklace... More

I was here with a large group and we pre-ordered our burgers, so they would have sufficient time to make our food. I had a nice fish burger ('off the hook'), but the sauce was quite dominant. I think it would have been nicer with a white, mild sauce instead of a bbq sauce. I heard good comments on the... More

We were recommended to visit this café. We had a hue hamburger which was huge . However there was only a small meat pattie but lots of salad. The taste was good but we were disappointed in the lack of meat. We suggest sharing a burger if having a small appetite. Coffee average and only comes in take away cups.... More
