Miles long queue for a burger

We stayed in Queenstown for a couple of days and were surprised the first time we drove Shotover Street because, although it was raining, there was a huge queue on the sidewalk. We wandered what all that people was waiting for. Later on during that same day, we walked Shotover St. and could... read more

Right, I love my burgers and I have been privileged to try some very good ones around the world. But, this place tops it all. If you are in queenstown, you definitely need to come here

There is always a long queue outside the shop every time we passed by. And we decided to give it a try for our late lunch (when the queue is relatively shorter).Burgers are really yummy especially when it is freshly made. Should try it👍🏻👍🏻

Our youngest is called Fergus so of course we had to have a Fergburger... YES my husband thought I was insane joining the already massive queue (late for lunch after the gondola, luge & walk up through the woods to walk the paragliders), but posted the family to the nearby beach while I waited...and waited...the lovely staff brought menus and...

We read the reviews and were recommended by our motel owner and we realised there may be a wait and there is a lot of hype. Our experience was that we only had to wait about 15 minutes which for freshly prepared food we didn’t consider was bad. We decided to share a Big Al as we would be eating... More

The burgers are always excellent, the fries very moreish, and the secret of not waiting 90 plus minutes for your burger? When you are in town stop by, pick up a menu, and then PHONE IN YOUR ORDER! They get it right 90% of the time and it does give you a great feeling to sail in, part the hungry... More
