Best burgers in NZ, delicious every time! Super easy to order via the app. And parking is easy for pickup. Highly recommend!

Really tasty and generously sized burgers. Not great value when feeding a family, but a varied menu and good options for vegetarians too.

Quite dry burger. A bit disappointed considering the price. Had much better elsewhere. Egg overcooked. Little taste to be fair.

If ordering online expect it to be ready well after the expected time. Add at least 25 mins. Doesn’t appear to be any linkage between what’s happening in the kitchen and the online system.

All round good stuff. They always fill the burgers up to the max and it taste consistently great. I always order ahead and they’ve never messed up, always been on point.

A mid-sized selection of burgers, and a small range of local beers and other interesting drinks/shakes. Good for a quick lunch or dinner. I've ha better burgers, but I've had a lot worse too. The food was a little better than Burger Wisconsin or Burger...Fuel. Indoor and covered outdoor seating is available, but if its busy assume you'll be buying to take away. Service was excellent.More

Still wonder how this can get so many good reviews. Been eating at Redstar burger 3 or 4 times and I’ve been soooo disappointed each time. Burgers have no taste, no sauce, no identity. Will not even pay half of the price of what they...ask for it. Boring.More

Got 2 takeaway burgers and kumera fries from here all of it was stone cold, when I rang they were very apologetic and offered full refund in form of a voucher but have rung twice since and still nothing. I'm ok with a cold burger...and an apology it happens but dont offer money back and dont follow through.More

Hi there - I’m sorry for the delay in processing this refund, however it hasn’t been for lack of effort. I’m sure we aren’t the first to have been tripped up by your extremely complex email address. The staff member who took your initial call...More

The chicken changed to free-range a couple of years back. I’m sorry if our happy chickens offended you.
