We visited this restaurant on our first night in Auckland after spending a lot of time in Sydney which definitely sets the bar high in terms of burger restaurants. We were drawn in by a deal we had heard about - 2 for 1 on Tuesday's. The restaurant itself has a nice appearance with comfortable booths available. Whilst scanning the... More

Greated by very friendly staff. Only a few minutes before our order was delivered to our table. Great burgers and excellent side dish. Even got a cheerful goodbye from the chef as we left. Recommended for good value and nice atmosphere. Would dine there again.

Seems to concentrate on what it does well and when it comes to burgers they do them well. Only a few outside seats (infested by smokers) so inside it was. About sixteen different burgers, some sides,, say ten different beers, and a few wines. Beers from $4:50 to $12:50, burgers $9-15. Mostly young clientele and staff and music to match... More

A bit like Burger Fuel - big burgers, good selection of types, craft beer, friendly staff and bright premises. Loud music, but their main clientele is young people so they like that.

The burger itself was made up of a couple of thin overcooked patties and wasn't really enjoyable. I've had better burgers at McDonalds. But the service was the worst part: first, they failed to inform us of the offer of the day, and we ended up paying more for less food. Ok, mistakes happen, no big deal. But when we... More

The chicken sandwich and fries were good but the burgers were hockey pucks. Not what is expected at a burger joint.

Scrumptious, tasty and light...I don't know how it can be put together but it was. A burger done with top and fresh ingredients in a bun that feels light and right on your tummy. Flavoursome! Maybe the best eaten here for a loooooong time.

I really like the burgers here, but the bun is too big for its contents. I had to pick the edges off to enjoy it or I just kept getting mouthfuls of bread. Excellent chicken burger though and really yum chips!

It was helped by the fact that there was a "secret word" deal going. If you ordered a burger and say "barbecued as...", you could order a second burger free of charge. A patron told us about it while we were looking at the wall menu, but in fact we then heard the counter guy telling people anyway. So I... More
