“I wish Burger Fuel was in the USA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013

Excellent food. I loved the Bambina because it was the perfect size. The fries were great as well. Aioli sauce was yum. Everything was fresh and the atmosphere was good as well. We visited Burger Fuel twice while on our trip. This place topped some of the gourmet places we tried.

“GF Burgers-YEAH!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

Had been informed a few times that Burger Fuel have GF Burgers, & they do! Went there on a weekend day and saw the new premises have a great outside eating area. Spoke to a young girl who seemed to be quite well informed about GF Options and concerns. She said all the staff are trained in Gluten free options. Quite interesting really as all the staff were very young ,so their knowledge was a pleasant surprise. Its an extra $2 for the GF yummy sesame seed buns and the aioli was GF. Sadly we were informed NO FRIES for us, as they cant deep fry them due to the cross-contamination issue. A HUGE burger arrived piled up with a real meat Pattie,salad, beetroot, aioli, tomato etc. . Devoured every mouthful ,it was so good, but at $12 for just a burger it will be a treat for us , not regular customers. Hopefully one day it would be worthwhile to offer GF FRIES for all us GF people !!!!!!!

“Good price, good value!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

I was surprised about the good quality of the burgers. I mean, it is still a fast food chain burger but much better than all the BurgerKing and McDonalds crap. Just try it!

“Top-rate burgers and veggie alternatives”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 16, 2013

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I just loved this place. The burger was great and even my non-meat eating wife thought her vegeburger was the best she'd had. The owner was very friendly and the price was about 1/2 of what you'd pay for similar here in the UK. Another place at which I'd be a frequent visitor if I only could.
N.B. It is no longer though to be found on Fenton Street. It is now in spanking new premises at the junction of Tarawera Road and Te Ngae Road. Go there !

“great lunch at Burger fuel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

We first visited Burger Fuel and few years ago in Rotorua when visiting family and this made an impression on my 15 year old son. He said that he wanted to visit there again. We went to the new store that they have just opened in Rotorua and was really nice and clean, The food didnt dissapoint either it was freshly made and the chips were to die for. I feel its such a shame that they dont do a Burger fuel in Whangarei as i feel would take off and become very popular. Thanks again for an enjoyable lunch...The Briggs family..
