The Best!

Lamb, Beef, Falafel or Tofu just the best burgers around - anywhere! There's always a queue but don't let that put you off it's really well managed with an excellent ticketing system so you can place your order and return in time to collect you food - always worth the wait.

Awesome burgers! Good luck coming here when it's not packed! Well worth the half an hour wait. Excellent friendly staff and would definitely recommend this as number 1 attraction to visit when you are in Queenstown!

We went down to Fergburger last wednesday and had a great experience despite having to queue and wait a further 30 min for the burgers. Fantastic food,friendly staff and great customer service. They even offered free chips and cookies for my little one while waiting.Keep up the good work. We'll be back:)

Have tried most of their burger variations from their Chief Wiggum which has porkbelly hasbrown with a special mustard sauce to a falafel burger called Bun Laden. Evrything is unique and flavourful. but their basice burgers with brie or blue cheese is the best burger I have tried in my entire life. A must try when in Queenstown!

I like my steak rare but my burger was so under cooked. The meat was pink and dripping blood. I guess you get that when they are constantly rushing mass produced burgers the quality is just crap. The standard Ferg burger with cheese is the only one I would recommend. You wait in line for about half an hour to... More

Why people are happy to queue for 45 mins for a second rate burger is beyond me. Maybe the burger tastes "awesome" because you're ravaged with hunger and are slightly hypothermic. Maybe you're too afraid to buck the trend and actually admit the burger wasn't great? Maybe peer pressure is rampant across an adventure and adrenaline fueled town like Queenstown?... More

Usually around a 20-40 minute wait depending on when you grab your burger. The place is packed so be prepared to eat outside. No complaints about the burgers though - generous with the fillings!

So our friend said you haven't been to Queenstown if you haven't had a Fergburger. It was aaaaaaaaamazing.. I think we got there just after 10am and the queue was already huge. There is no point in going at an actual meal time as you'll be waiting hours. It was well worth the wait though.. I couldn't finish it but... More

Solid burger, average ambiance yet can think of three local places with better burgers... Wouldn't recommend waiting in line for it.

This was my second trip to Queenstown and Ferg burger was one thing i was not going to miss. The burgers are literally the best i have ever had. Fresh salad and bread rolls and neber leave you feeling sick (unless you over eat of course ha ha). Always large lines but dont let that put you off as they... More
