Amazing place for burgers, always. Great service and food is different than the ordinary fast food places. I highly recommend it.

“Grassfed burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 29, 2013

Excellent burgers that are all grassfed. Quick and easy. Perfect spot for a quick bite and then enjoy the Lake Taupo views while eating. Many topping options.

“How Burgers Should Be Made”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

If you have to have only one burger for the rest of your life, this place is the one to go to. Big, meaty (yes, porky included) and sinfully delicious - absolutely how a burger is to be made.

Make sure you have the Kumara Fries as a side order as well.

“Just another burger joint? Well it's not.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

This place, one of a chain of many, is a great place to eat what I would call, a gourmet burger. They are high end burgers with some pretty novel fillings to suit the different palate of the people who enjoy eating there. There was a steady flow of burger munches who were all made happier by their eating experience They also offer a take out service which many customers seemed to avail themselves of - not surprising with a beautiful lake side setting and a warm sun shining. The place was recommended to us by some fellow, "Yanks" who had eaten at Burger Fuels previously while over nighting in Wellington. The staff make the place, easy going, polite with good wit and humor - very welcoming as well. Inside the burger stand has a faux 1950's Rock n Roll decor which seemed to suit the place - its suited us pretty much as well. We ate on the premises while we wanted to watch the flow of Kiwi's doing what they seem to like doing best. A busy restaurant kitchen is an entertainment and choreographed production line efficiency. Although we enjoyed the food, it was the happy smiling faces of the, mainly, youthful staff who welcomed what appears to be return customers with the demeanor of long lost friends.
