“Tasty swine burger. But long wait queue”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

It was a long wait. But the swine burger was worth it. It is filling so don't be fooled. Try the mulled wine too.

“There's a reason for the queue”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Fergburger have taken the humble hamburger and transformed it... They are very, very tasty, and they are BIG. Don't underestimate it.

The only downside is that at the times you want to eat a queue is almost guaranteed. I think we saw a pretty good queue out the door at dinner time every day we were in Queenstown. Definitely worth the wait though.

“Delicious and great value for money”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Went twice in 2 days - burgers are massive and taste brilliant. No matter what time you go they are always busy but they get through the crowds quickly and we love sitting and watching them make the burgers. They are brilliant value for money - we currently live in NZ and when considering the price of salads they used at this time of year, we are really impressed with their burger prices. Most other restaurants would change their menu to seasonal produce instead. They need to try increase the size of their shop - just not enough space to eat there so we always take away! Definitely recommend to all!

“In Ferg we trust!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

This has been a long time coming but that makes it no less deserved. We were in QT for 5 nights back in March of this year and wanted to see what all the fuss about. Turns out the hype was well deserved. Long queues greeted us but we could understand why when we tried the burgers. Very reasonably priced for a tourist hub like QT and portions so huge that you could club 2 meals into one. Couldn't stop ourselves from going once again before we left. Highly recommended!
