Queenstown, South Island, New Zealand, November 2014
While in Queenstown during a bike-packing adventure in New Zealand, I experienced one of the best burgers that I have ever eaten. Not only were these burgers good, they were huge and reasonably priced.
These are the renown Fergburgers.

Fergburger, located at Shotover Street in Queenstown, is a favourite with tourists and locals alike - it's one of the best and cheap food in New Zealand. There's always a long queue of customers lining up to make orders and take a number. Even while we were there in the rain, customers were patiently waiting in line!

In fact, patrons have to wait twice. First queue up for about 15-20 minutes for their orders to be taken, then wait another 15-20 minutes for their orders to be served through a window opening at the front of the shop.
A TV screen at the front displays orders that are ready and it also shows how long more other orders will take to be served.

Most come and take-away as there is just many seating to cater for the big crowd of eager patrons. There are some seating indoors and a couple of tables outdoors but these are just not enough. It's easier and more fun to take-away and eat at a nearby park or at the Wakatipu lakeside.

Okay, let's have a look and see what's all the fuss is about:
This is the regular Fergburger and it's huge! It is almost 9-10 inches across and about 3-4 inches thick and yet the ingredients seems to be overflowing out.
The bun is fluffy with a thin layer of semi-crispy crust. Vegetables included are lettuce, tomatos, onions; all laid on a tomato and aioli relish. The patty is the best! It's almost half an inch thick of superb juicy and tasty pure minced beef. Bite for bite, it's the best combo that I have taken.

We ate and then yearned for more..... well, it's back to patiently and happily queueing again!

Now this fish-burger has a interesting name called the Codfather. With such a name, one should eat it respectfully and not complain on whether it's good or not.
Okay, that's just a joke.
This burger has fresh Blue Cod deep-fried in beer batter which are surrounded by veggies until it looks overflowing. Dill Tartar and Aioli completes these set. The fish is really fresh and it's fishy aroma wafts out with each bite.
A good choice for non-meat lovers; for me the beefy burger is still the best!

The Fergburger Menu & Price-list:
AT NZD11-00, the regular Fergburger is a steal. It's a reasonably priced, tasty, succulent AND filling meal when compared other burgers. So, here's a Pffft! to those bland, almost tasteless, saw-dust type patties from most fast-food burger chains!

For those who want to bring memories back home, Fergburger has a range of merchandise, just pick your choice.

For those not into burgers, next door is the FergBaker that sells all sorts of pastries from sandwiches to pies to buns, etc.
