I can't believe we waited so long to go here! The burgers are huge and very tasty! Mine was the billy with béarnaise and it was cooked perfectly and topped with onion rings, a lovely bernaise sauce and salad. My side.... a big box of chips and thick, lovely gravy! The perfect combination! The place was busy, the staff were... More

The burgers here are to die for. And the chips too! Plus our meal is always ready to go when we phone and the guy who we're always served by at the counter is world class at his job- so outgoing, so efficient. Deserves a pay rise!

We were in New Zealand for a month, and this was the very best burger I had the during our whole vacation! Unfortunately, this was the first burger I had, and while I had many decent burgers, nothing compared to this one with fresh bread and fresh ingredients. The restaurant itself was very laid back with friendly staff. We had... More

Been here many times on way back from work. The environment is simple but you are able to see into the kitchen, it is always full and has a good vibe. The staff are friendly and provide great service everytime I have been there. The food is served quickly and cooked to perfection. The burgers are massive and meat delicious.... More

We love to go there! Friendly staff, very nice beer and the best burgers I've ever tried! They have lots of different deals if you download the app and you can get free chips! Our favourite dinner is Iwi Burger for my partner, King Julius for me and chips with gravy to share.. Love the place and love the Beers... More

Great Burgers but the highlight of the meal was the Chips and Gravy! The chips were like Roast potatoes in chip form and the gravy was quite possibly the best Ive ever tasted. Put them together and it was AMAZING!!

The chips were really remarkable. Very crispy and flavorful exterior, but soft and melt in your mouth interior. That with a thick, tasty gravy made every bite worth each calorie consumed. The burgers were juicy, and thick. With the name, would have expected a wider selection of beer on tap, but that's ok. The food was delicious.
