Best Burgers. Ever.

Burger Fuel has moved from Fenton St, it is now in 2 locations: The Redwoods Centre (Tarawera Road) and on the East side of town, at the shopping centre on Fairy Springs Road. I am a big fan of Burger Fuel ever since the first store popped up in Ponsonby - the quality is always great, the menu is... read more

Detailed menu with vegetarian options. They are very large American-style burgers but also very expensive. Cost $34 for 2 people. Heard good things about it so it was good to try.

Nice burger however the price is way too expensive for a fast food chain. Went to Carl Jrs and got the same burger for a much better price. Get off your high horse and charge more reasonable prices!

Burger Fuel is a chain. Their burgers are large and messy, but delicious. The Burger Fuel in Rotorua is on SH5 headed out of town toward Hamilton (past the McDonalds and Burger King and Wendy's). We thought it was well worth the extra few minutes to get there.

If you're really craving a burger and want to spend some money to satisfy the craving here's the place to go. The portions are great that I shared the fries with my husband and we were both full. More importantly, the food is delicious and satisfied our burger craving. I would suggest going to the Redwoods location, perfect meal after... More

A favourite with my family. Far superior burgers to other fast food joints. More expensive too, but worth it. Grab your burger and sit down by the lake. Bliss.

This place is very busy but I can see why! The food was lovely and the portions were big (in my opinion). It is quite expensive but I would recommend this - try it once - you'll probably go back!

There is a great range of burgers and well worth the wait. A must to try, even though they are a little more expensive than your average burger its because its not the average burger and worth trying.
