Great food and service, busy place full of uni students and travellers. The vegie options are delicious and reasonably priced. Make sure you the hashies, they go down amazingly with cider and a burger.

“Fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

This is what burgers should be like. Eating one of these is like having a meal, not a snack. While they are more expensive than the chain variety, the are cheaper than the adjacent pubs with similar fare. We went to the Stuart Street shop. The whole area humms. The service was fast and friendly, and we felt no pressure to gobble and go.

The menue is excelent. We had the venison version which was probably the best burger I have ever had. Accompanied it with Kumara chips (hate the word "fries"). There were plenty of small breweries beers to wash it all down. You could surf the net with the free wifi while waiting.

Totally recomend

“Awesome Burgers!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

The venison burger is the best... and you can order a beer if you like. The chips are good also... the staff are friendly and they have two locations in town!

“Best burgers!!! Ever!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 2, 2013 via mobile

Have been a few times now and never disappoint. They are soooooo good. The only complaint is I went in one day at 1130 trying to get a quick one before work and was told they didn't open until 1230 in the summer. :( boo

“THE best burger in the country!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 18, 2013

The best service, the best menu (and names!), the very best burgers, spud fries (fatties or skinnies), and aioli yum! They're not cheap but then again they're not cheap tasting either :-)
We went to the restaurant on George Street and dined in. Everything was absolutely excellent. The chicken was succulent and tender, the salad crisp and fresh as were the buns, delicious. Can't rave about the Velvet Burger Dunedin enough! I'm seriously shocked to see a "poor" rated review, maybe they should stick with Maccas.
