Arrived in Ohakune late and shocked to find the supermarket and most restaurants closed (snowboarding season hadn't started yet). Had this place recommended by the locals and wasn't disappointed. The fries were worth the money and both the burgers purchased were delicious. Highly recommend.

I ordered the Aotearoa burger and it was so yummy! A classic Kiwi burger. Easy to eat and worth the 25 minute wait. Would definitely recommend eating here!

Superb burgers and drinks menu with great atmosphere and friendly staff. Difficult to get table during busy times, would recommend a phone order if it’s a peak time.

We go to Ohakune every year and I don’t know how we missed this place but it was recommended so we went a couple of weeks ago and we absolutely loved it. Great choice of burgers, and they are super delicious. Also lots of options...More

We visit here almost every time we come to Ohakune. The gluten free burgers are awesome - nice fresh buns and I’ve never gotten sick, despite being a very sensitive celiac. I almost always choose a different burger each time I come and I’ve never...More
