“Great final dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

I had soul burger with my family on the last night of our stay in whangamata, great fresh burgers with great names to match. Service was fast and although it was busy service was still top notch. Great location with outdoor seating and milkshakes served in the old school metal cups topped it off. They also take barter card which is great as not a lot of places in whangamata do, would recommend to anyone wanting a great fresh burger at any time of the day!!!

“Summer Burgers at Whangamata”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Yay! I'm vegan and gluten intolerant, so I had 3 burgers to pick from! We had a large order, so we phoned ahead and ordered off the internet. We had passed by the shop in the morning but they had run out of paper menus. We ordered take-out rather than trying to seat 14 people, and phoned ahead to order without problems. My burger was a little disappointing, I ordered a vegan vibe burger and it came with aioli (without me asking for it when the menu said it was optional, I thought that meant opting in not opting out), no avocado and no relish, so it was rather dry. I scraped the aioli off, and added tomato relish from home. If I'm paying $12+ for a burger I expect it to be pretty darned good, and it wasn't. The rest of the diners said their burgers were okay, and on par with Burger Fuel. I'd choose Burger Fuel any day.

“Delish”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013

Centrally located in the main street, we went there based on TA reviews and were not disappointed. A good menu to suit our varied tastes, excellent chips and well priced. A must-eat locale.

great burgers, but on the spring Saturday evening it was so busy they were running out of things and forgetting my fries. Will return though.
