More Myth than Fact

Fergburger was a fine burger, without a doubt. The bun was cooked well, the cheese nicely melted, etc. But was it the best burger I have ever had, as some of these other reviews would have you believe? Hardly. It definitely ranks in the top half - even top quarter - of burgers tasted, but I... read more

Fergburger is one of those places you go because you're in Queenstown. The latest visit delivered thin patties after a long wait (due to a very large crowd). The burger was good, but I think the flavor was due to the aioli and not necessarily the burger. The bun, however, was my favorite part; it was fresh and delicious. I... More

Ok, it's a tasty burger but I wouldn't make so much noise about it! Recommend to go only away from rush hours unless you wanna wait for an hour in line.

if you love a good burger and you're in Queenstown this is a MUST! But don't go too late, depending on the night could wait 1 hour minimum. I waited the hour and didn't regret it

I'm not a burger lover, but Fergburger with cheese is the best burger I ever had. They open from 08:30-05:00, unbelievable. Better go there in the morning or you have to queue and wait for half an hour.

We were amazed at the huge line of people waiting for burgers and on our last night in Queenstown decided to line up ourselves. While we waited for neatly 45 minutes in line and then 15 minutes for the burgers to be cooked I have to say the wait was worth it! Best burger I have ever had....couldn't finish it... More

Avoid the lines, call ahead, get some coffee, take a walk, then go pick it up 20-30 minutes later, why wait in line in the hot sun? Burger was massive, I had the "Big Al" with 1/2 pound of beef (two large patties) bacon, cheese, 2 eggs, beetroot, lettuce, tomato, onions, relish and aioli. Very tasty, but way too much... More

My friends is a South Island local and had been meaning to go to Fergburger for some time, and I had been recommended to go from friends who had been before. We lined up for only about 20 minutes and we only had a 20 minute wait for food which wasn't too bad. The Burger itself could have been made... More

They have one of the best service , the staff is always smiling, helpful , ready to cater to specific requirements, in spite of being so busy. Minimum wait in que 1 hour during meal time. Went there since it has been rated the best in the world. Must visit Price is steep compared to others
