Another great visit

Whenever we come to Rotorua we always try and get at least one visit in to Burger Fuel. It is now in the Redwood Centre on the main road out of Rotorua heading towards the airport on the roundabout to the redwoods/blue lake. Also offer low carb options (lettuce leaves instead of a bun).

Could of been a great burger to take out but sadly they were could. They sat waiting for the chips to cook for 6 or so minutes and by the time we had driven 500 mitres the chips were still hot but the burgers cold. Even the paper bags had given up and were all soggy. I hope for better... More

Service is prompt and polite. Premises are clean and new. Burgers are made with fresh, real ingredients. We often get our burgers here and they are always great.

Tasty food with friendly service, perfect spot to end your mountain bike ride. Not in the middle out of turn, but a great choice if you're in the area.

Been to Burger Fuel a few times over the last few months. Burgers are consistently very good. Far better than the big chains. And the burgers are a decent size; 1 burger and some spud fries is enough for a hungry teenager. By the way the Fenton Street Burger Fuel has moved to the Redwoods Centre.

Burger fuel has by far got the best burgers around. Great selection and flavours. Far superior to anything u might get from the likes of Kfc, McDonalds, Burgerking etc etc. And i imagine they are alot healthier than those places too. Wishing id taken those options to buy shares all those years ago now.

Much the same as any Burger Fuel store. Good variety as per other stores. Seems very busy at times in their new location at the Redwood Centre in Rotorua.

Every time I have gone to burger fuel (redwood shopping centre) the food and service has been amazing and so worth the price. For us, two adults and one child, we get a huge filling meal for about $35 to feed all of us. The burgers are delicious and relatively healthy with lots of salads and a free range meat... More

We enjoyed the food...... but the state of the place was so untidy and dirty. The tables were full with rubbish, floors were scattered with rubbish and hadn't been cleaned for I don't know how long. The rubbish bins were overflowing. Tables hadn't been wiped. I did mention this to the checkout lady and she apologised for this.
