About Fergburger

Fergburger started in 2001. It doesn’t have a long history, however its fame has spread around the world and some people visit Queenstown to have their amazing burgers.

Despite of its huge popularity, Fergburger hasn’t branched out and has a location only in Queenstown.

They have never employed anyone in sales or marketing roles, its legend was born only from word of mouth.

Fergburger has own bakery, Ferg Baker, next door. Pies, pastries, sandwiches, breads and cakes are available as an entrée there.

The Secret of Their Burger

The reason their burger is so popular is that they all are fresh and locally sourced. From meat to veggies, they use New Zealand products. If they use some ingredient imported such as bacon, they put the source on the menu for sure.

Next, every element of a burger, patty, buns and sauces, is hand made and prepared every morning.

Meat is ground and hand-formed in the kitchen, and buns are baked at Ferg Baker.

This is how the flawless burger is made, there in no shortcut at all.

Fergburger is the most simple and popular one. It has Prime New Zealand beef, lettuce, tomato, red onion, tomato relish and aioli. You can add cheddar, blue, Swiss or brie cheese as your preference.

While the outside of a bun is crispy, the inside is fluffy. Once you bite patty, the gravy soaks into buns in your mouth and get so tasty,

The burger itself is so huge and seems you hardly finish it by yourself. However, once you start eating, you can not stop yourself and finish it without realizing you are already full.

How Locals Enjoy the Burger

At Fergburger, you have to wait 2 times. The first one is to place your order, the second time is to get your burger. It can be more than half an hour wait in total. Local people don’t do this.

What locals do is that to call in their order first and after 15 – 20 minutes later go to the pick-up window. That way, they can skip the waiting line and directly get their burgers.

If they get a table, it is lucky, but they normally take away their burgers and enjoy them at the lakeside or the park nearby. Queenstown is an ideal place to sit outside and the burger will get even better with the beautiful view and cozy breeze.
