Amazing place for burgers, always. Great service and food is different than the ordinary fast food places. I highly recommend it.

Excellent burgers that are all grassfed. Quick and easy. Perfect spot for a quick bite and then enjoy the Lake Taupo views while eating. Many topping options.

If you have to have only one burger for the rest of your life, this place is the one to go to. Big, meaty (yes, porky included) and sinfully delicious - absolutely how a burger is to be made. Make sure you have the Kumara Fries as a side order as well.

This place, one of a chain of many, is a great place to eat what I would call, a gourmet burger. They are high end burgers with some pretty novel fillings to suit the different palate of the people who enjoy eating there. There was a steady flow of burger munches who were all made happier by their eating experience... More

This place would take a lot to beat! The burgers are amazing, tasty and packed full of fresh ingredients with a stunning range of burger options. Quick service, a little over priced compared to similar burger restaurants but worth a visit to experience the worlds best burgers!

...and everything McDonalds isn't. Big burgers made with healthy (well as healthy as burgers can be) ingredients, the staff are nice and helpful, and the burgers are delectable. I've lived in Taupo for 2 months and eaten there 4 times ...they were even open on Christmas day!
