Worth the queue!

YUM YUM YUM. Big, juicy burgers. A must-visit if you ever find yourself in Queenstown. Yes, chances are you'll have to queue, but the line moves pretty fast.

Really good burger. Worthy of the hype. And worth the wait. And you likely will have to wait. The queue can get long, and then you have to wait for them to cook it. But worth it. Part of the experience is the staff. They are super friendly and will talk to you while you wait in the queue. The... More

So I heard about this place from the flight crew on Air New Zealand flight from LAX to Auckland when they heard I was visiting Queenstown. Then just about everyone I met in Auckland, and Christchurch recommended them. So I had to try them out. 30 minute queues (not to long for normal apparently), big menu and huge burgers. A... More

Anybody who goes to Queenstown had got to do this at least once. I don't know why such hype but the burgers are good and such variety; beef, lamb, veneson, etc. Their bakery and gelato bar next door are very much worth a visit as well.

I was told I had to go here. Told it was worth the wait. It was pretty damned worth it. Nz has a high standard of burgers.

When in Queenstown you should try a Fergburger!! it is well worth the wait. The most srumdidledumsious bergers going, be prepared to get messy as they are big and juicy. No real favorite they have all been great. Do expect to wait, typically 30 minutes just to order then another 20 before you see it.

Has a great reputation and did not disappoint. Wait was reasonably short, although having passed during the peak lunch hour earlier, I can imagine it could become quite long. Got the Chief Wiggum burger which was as good as any I've had before. Friendly staff and good service. Will be back to try something else off the menu!

I was expecting fantastic things from here but I wasn't blown away. To be fair, I had a chicken burger so perhaps it's not as good as the beefburgers. There was a good quantity of food though - I was glad I hadn't ordered chips to go with it! I'd eat here again as long as the queue wasn't too... More

We had a late lunch at 3.30pm here and managed to get a table outside and didn't have to wait too long. Burgers are massive and so tasty!!!!! Very iconic Queenstown eatery that is a must try :)
