We always get take-aways, but you can eat indoors (winter), but it is small and gets crowded. There are some outside tables (OK in summer). A good range of burgers. If you are not a Kiwi, you must give the Venison burger a go. Just don't think of Bambi with beautiful doe eyes :-) You'll be doing our ecology a... More

Here you will find the right burger for you, but beware, ITS BIG! My cheeseburger was AMAZING, I made the mistake of ordering a side of fries, which really set me back, because I couldnt finish the burger! The meat used is of a high quality, the extras were also fresh and delicious! I really cant fault them, I'll be... More

Large burgers (1/3 lb?), not greasy, didn't think I could eat it all and then it was gone. Open until 9pm after many other places in wanaka are closed.

American styled burger joint with awesome burgers, cool staff and nice tunes playing. I had the venison burger which was around $18 and it was served and ready to eat in 10mins. These burgers are massive and full of flavour. One of the must try eateries in Wanaka.

Thank you so much for your kind review - so stoked you loved your burger! Just have to correct you on the price though - the venison burger is $15 NOT $18. Our highest priced burger is the MOFO (aka 'the works') at $17. More

We saw the reviews on TripAdvisor and felt like burgers to took the classic, to go. It was huge, had a good pattie, with salads and extras. Normal New Zealand burger price but you get more.

Great low key place with lots of creative burger options. Fries were also delicious. It's a tiny space but also has some outdoor seating when it's nice out.
