Burgers Done Right

Member Rating 5 out of 5 by lo7la on February 23, 2009

What started out as a hole in the wall take-away burger joint has turned into a local cult classic. Fergburger started out with modest roots, a small kitchen servering burgers until late in the night from a window bench down a small laneway. The quality of the product is what gave Fergburger is well earned reputation for arguably the best burgers in Queenstown.
The new location is open all day and all night long. You can sit inside and outside. There are a range of burgers, beef, chicken and veggie you can order from. There are breakfast burgers. You can get yours with chips or onion rings or with a beer.
They are made the old fashion way, taking ground beef, making them into balls and flatting those out into patties with one's fist. They are made to order and the establishment uses fresh buns and other ingredients.
The regular plain old Fergburger will set you back $9.50 and lettus, tomato, red onion, aioli and tomato relish. You can upgrade that to a cheeseburger with Edam, Swiss, Blue or Brie for .50cents to a dollar more.
If you are really hungry, and I'm talking the hunger to beat all hungers you can get a Mr Big Stuff. This is 1/2lb of beef along with cheese and american streaky bacon (and the rest of toppings found on a regular burger).
For those meat shy persons you can get a tofu burger or a falafel sandwhich.
Most of the gormet burgers are priced around $11.
I would say a trip to Queenstown wouldn't be complete without a trip to Fergburger, especially if it is a late night, post bar run.
