My husband and I were traveling from the U.S. to New Zealand when we stopped at this little burger place. We have truly NEVER had a better burger than they had here and we are NOT spring chickens! I would truly fly half way around the world once more just to have one of those burgers again! All I can say is, DON'T miss this one! We guarantee that you will not regret it!

We came by here for a family dinner one night and it was busy. Read rave reviews about it and decided to try it while we were visiting Wanaka. Burgers were huge and delicious, very substantial portions. Fries were yum. Would definitely come back. Long waiting lines at peak meal times so go early.

This place does incredible burgers , you will not be dissatisfied, these are massive and will really fill you up , we got our for takeaway but there is some limited seating . We made the mistake of getting fries with our burgers , my goodness these were almost a meal in themselves but wow they were good , the biggest problem you may have after being here is falling into a food coma afterwards. Try this place it’s great.

Was recently in Wanaka 4 nights... had this one night and just had to have again. I had the caesar burger delicious!!! Best burger I've ever had. This place is a million times better than Fergburger! Absolutely recommend and would visit Wanaka again if only for another caesar butger!!! Yummy!

We went in and ordered burgers for take away. Nice folks work there and the food they produce is nonpareil. My lamb burger with curly lettuce, tomato and a succulent mint tahini sauce was heavenly. Short wait. May not want to
eat there but if you have a pleasant place for takeaway this is as good as it gets. Don’t miss it if you love lamb.
