Totally lived it up to its fame!

As soon as I visited Queenstown, there were 3-4 different people who told me I had to have Fernburgers if I liked burgers. I love burgers! So went there, got in line and got the famous burgers and they totally lived up to the expectations. Being from New York, I have access to some of the best... read more

The lineups outside Fergburger at all times of the day and night tell you that it is a popular place. So of course we just had to try it too. Given menus to study while in line was a good idea to pass the time. It took about 30 minutes but we were prepared. Once we ordered and got inside... More

Fergburger has a lot of different burgers. I have tried 3 different over the years. Last visit yesterday. Although the burgers are very good, the long waiting will give 1 star minus. During lunch expect to wait far over 30 minutes. If never tried, you should, but take your time.

Long queues but worth the wait. You order your choice of burgers and then wait for it to be freshly prepared. It is a must do while in Queenstown.

I have had more than 10x FergBurgers - and still get so impressed with how good it is EVERY SINGLE TIME; living in Dunedin, it's about 3.5 hrs drive to Queenstown - I think it's really worthwhile just to drive there for a burger and come back - highly recommended! You have NO idea what an amazing burger taste like... More

I must of had 5 burgers and I was only in queens town a week. I just wanted to try them all! As I'm from England I thought the prices were cheap for a massive burger, prices range from $10-20. My personal favourite was the 'chief wiggem' which was pork belly and it is cooked to perfection with lots of... More

May be the best burger in Queenstown but not in New Zealand. Fat Tui in Marahau wins the prize in my opinion.

Not going to say it is the best burger I've ever had, but it is probably worth the hype, and the long lines. The meat patties themselves are nothing special, but the burgers they've created are unique and what I think makes it worth trying. We actually ended up going back a second time because there were more that sounded... More
