If you want the biggest burger in town this is the place to come. The burgers are tasty. Love the Kumara chips. Drinks in the old fashioned small bottles. A little expensive but great for a treat.

You always know you're getting quality when you get Burger Fuel. After a hard day at Crankworx we'd get a whole load of burgers for the whole team, and they got 100% of all the weird and assorted orders right.

Could of been a great burger to take out but sadly they were could. They sat waiting for the chips to cook for 6 or so minutes and by the time we had driven 500 mitres the chips were still hot but the burgers cold. Even the paper bags had given up and were all soggy. I hope for better... More

Whenever we come to Rotorua we always try and get at least one visit in to Burger Fuel. It is now in the Redwood Centre on the main road out of Rotorua heading towards the airport on the roundabout to the redwoods/blue lake. Also offer low carb options (lettuce leaves instead of a bun). Always leave full and satisfied ...

Service is prompt and polite. Premises are clean and new. Burgers are made with fresh, real ingredients. We often get our burgers here and they are always great.

Tasty food with friendly service, perfect spot to end your mountain bike ride. Not in the middle out of turn, but a great choice if you're in the area.

Been to Burger Fuel a few times over the last few months. Burgers are consistently very good. Far better than the big chains. And the burgers are a decent size; 1 burger and some spud fries is enough for a hungry teenager. By the way the Fenton Street Burger Fuel has moved to the Redwoods Centre.

Burger fuel has by far got the best burgers around. Great selection and flavours. Far superior to anything u might get from the likes of Kfc, McDonalds, Burgerking etc etc. And i imagine they are alot healthier than those places too. Wishing id taken those options to buy shares all those years ago now.

Thank BurnsNZ
