Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent vegan junk food, good burgers, chicken nuggets and mac n cheese balls. HUGE portion of fries. Perfect after a couple of beers or fast food fix.

Family ate here for dinner tonight, had two wraps, two sandwiches, and fries. The flavor was delicious, the portions generous, and the picnic table was fun to eat at. Patrick was friendly, fast with service, and provided great customer service. We recommend Lord of the...Fries!!More

Don’t make this mistake. It can be deceiving! This is the fakest hot dog and burger stand. Everything is non-meat. And tastes like trash.

Always a great place for an easy burger or last minute fries after a day playing mini golf, doing i-Fly or coming back down from Ziptreking/Gondola. Great staff service :)

I think vegan and vegetarian food is best when it doesn't try to copy non-vegetarian food or set itself up for head to head comparisons. Unfortunately, a lot of Lord of the Fries food is presented like "real" burgers, hot dogs, chicken sandwiches, etc, to...the point where you need to look twice to realize this is not a traditional burger stand. I think that for non-vegans, this will almost always disappoint. My kids were famished after a day of activities on Bob's Peak, and the proximity of LoTF made it an obvious choice. Big mistake. Although the fries were okay - nothing spectacular or worth a price above the usual McD's or other fast food style - my hungry kids (ages 10, 8, and 5) refused to eat their sandwiches and burgers after the first bite. I ate my burger because that's what adults do, rather than waste money, but I woud definitely not go again, not even for just fries. The staff were very nice, but I found the food pricey and unpalatable. NOT a convincing argument to go veggie for me and mine! That said, if you are a vegetarian or vegan, perhaps this would suit you?More

My husband and I visited and had a great experience. We ordered the classic burger, Parma burger, classic fries and loaded fries with one Parisian sauce and one gravy/cheese sauce. All really delicious and in such a great setting. It's pricey, but well worth the...visit.More

As a meat eater this was my first delve into the "meat substitute" world. I ordered the original burger, chunky fries and a sauce. I have no frame of reference for what the general standard is but I thought my burger was very unpleasant. The...cheese was sticky in my mouth and burger was swimming in sauces and overall I tasted these above all else. Like having a sticky ketchup sandwich. The chunky fries were disappointing also. Perhaps if I had ordered another burger I may of been happier as they do seem to have many of previous happy customers....but I would not return based on my experience. They do have a very nice selection of sauces available and it is nice to be able to choose size of fries. Their staff are also very pleasant.More

Great takeaway after a day on gondola and luge. We tried the Parisian/ garlic aioli and the Belgium fries. The garlic aioli was the best with chunky fries. The service was friendly and seating clean. Great view of the Remarkable mountains

Got the Classic fries - it’s nice and hot for a cold day but wasn’t too special. Wasn’t bad quality, just wasn’t super exceptional, especially given the price.

We don't go to Queenstown often but when we do we make sure to stop at Lord of the Fries. I always get the original burger (simple but oh so tasty) and the onion rings. The reason I only put 4 stars out of 5...is because it is not really healthy and I have to order without extra salt cause damn it's salty! (It's fast food and it's all fried so that's pretty obvious I know). Still, I will continue to go because it's delish and I like to support all vegan businesses.. and even meat eaters love it!More

This is known as a vegan fast food stall. So when walking by one afternoon I decided to give it a whirl. Now I'm a meat eater so I wasn't interested in buying a burger but I thought I will buy some fries as I...have heard good things. Well if you have "Fries" in your name of the business shouldn't the be cooked???? I got overpriced fries that were soggy and unappetising. I would definitely not recommend that people come here for vegan food if you can't even cook fries!!!More
