Worth the price!!

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... read 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.

My first Burger Fuel experience, and I'll be back. We paid $32 for two burgers and two different lots of chips. I don't mind paying little more for the quality. I had the Peanut Piston with kumera chips. Yum. He had the Ring Burner (which didn't burn his ring, he was pleased to report later). The meat tasted freshly cooked,... More

We went to the Redwood branch in Rotorua , they are on the ball here and the staff training shines. We were asked by three different staff members how we were enjoying our meals and could they be of any assistance. Whoever trains them knows their stuff. The burgers were tasty and the restaurant was spotless , my family enjoyed... More

Pretty good veggie burgers and reasonably priced, unlike most of the food in NZ. Extra words to meet minimum requirement.

Burgers made while you wait, with fresh ingredients. The only down side is that for me they're too big and I often go for a kids burger. They cater for Gluten free - big plus in my book

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 creative... 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.
