Very Busy, so used the Bakery / Take Out Option

Fresh and different. Not cheap, but then in Queenstown what is? Seemed busier than most other similar eateries

We had the breakfast burger, bland bland bland. We only tried this place as it wasn't overly crowded and could sit down, so thought see if all the hype was worth it, definitely not. Price was ok. Think its just the place to be seen, the burgers are average and next table to us left half of theirs which says... More

Friends had raved about it so decided to check it out. In town during a quiet month so there were no excessive lines but it was still very busy. 15 minute wait time to feed six of us.fantastic fresh burgers. A must do in Queenstown

Although the queuing line is long but its very worthy to try. We try tropical swine burger and its taste amazing. Melt in my mouth. Also try little lamby that has soft & tender lamb.

I was there at 5.30 pm and the girl taking orders wasn't paying attention to me. She looked away when and didn't listen to my order. I had to repeat when she looked back. Half an hour later, when my wife went back to get a beer, she and another girl were talking to a friend, not a customer. My... More

It was my first visit to Queenstown and we heard Fergburger was the best is town but to prepare for a long line and wait 30-60 minutes. This part was correct about waiting a long time, but the part about the best berger was FALSE. Now, I will say it was a holiday weekend and the line was extra long,... More

I had gone to Fergburger about 7 years ago, and they were not that popular but really good. Now that I went back, I really enjoyed the meal. I am from Mexico and was on my Honeymooon in New Zealand. I am a very big Burger fan and these burgers rank up among the best. Many THanks.

Queenstown is a beautiful place, and is backed up by this wonderful establishment. I had a burger that was the perfect size for a meal, I did not need any chips or sides at all. It was really really delicious! No other burgers really beat this place. Do not go in rush hour times - 5:30pm-8pm because you will of... More

The lines at this legendary burger joint would make you think that they were serving the best burgers in the world. Maybe I am spoiled coming from NY but the burgers were only above average. They are large and flavorful with some great fries. One trick… CALL AHEAD and order then show up and you get to skip the line!
