We have been in Rotorua on many occasions & always eat in Burger Fuel when we are there - its a tradition now! They are an amazing chain of NZ burger joints have a fantastic yet far from typical selection of veggie, chicken & beef burgers & the kumera fries with aioli are great! They are not the cheapest burgers... More

While staying in Rotorua on vacation, we stopped for a bite at Burger Fuel, and since I'm American, I was only expecting an average burger in New Zealand, but I was proven wrong, the burger was fantastic! As this was the first leg of my Australia/New Zealand vacation it was where I was first introduced to the fabulous aioli sauce.... More

Great service and the staff asked us about being gluten free and what it meant for us. They also advised us not to have the fries because of contamination. Great work burger fuel!

If you've been to Burger Fuel you know that their burgers are SO delicious!! They're fresh and incredibly tasty and the aioli for their spud fries is to die for! The Rotorua restaurant is fresh and clean and the staff are always friendly and helpful! Whatever you do, don't forget to use a doofer!

Never been before, was with others that wanted burgers so I tried the chicken pieces. Freerange and tasty. Chips great. Less expensive than a restaurant but better than traditional fast food outlets. Pleasantly surprised.

As I don't like gherkins,I chose a burger with a meat pattie which did not include gherkins as one of the contents listed. I was disappointed to find a whole layer of gherkins inside the burger. Also there was too much of each sauce which made everything slide as I tried to eat the burger. I have found that the... More

Fantastic Burgers and tasty spuds! A quirky little burger shop with outdoor bean bags and interesting Race Car themed burger names. Reasonably priced and really nice Beef Patties!

I don't used to eat burgers, but this is now my favorite. Although it still seems a bit expensive (but hey, this is NZ)... Anyway it's nice to eat a non-greasy and very tasty burger. I recommend "Bambina" if you want something smaller, and motorbites, are beautiful!! Great staff in each burger fuel.

The food here was better than your average burger. I'm not sure what some of the others were complaining about. It's much better quality food you're putting inside you than McDonald's, but even tho its pricier, their chips are delicious. Not the mention the gorgeous view you had of Lake taupo while eating.
