It's gone mad. Its so famous the burgers aren't as good as they once were. But only marginally. You dont have to have a good reason to go to fergs. They make good, heavy burgers. The best in qtown? Probably. Famous? No doubt. Worth the wait? I reckon. But go early, or late, so it's not a 45 minute wait.

It really is a burger that you wait for nearly an hour to eat. You went there, you ate there, and now you can tell everyone that you dined there. Nothing spectacular about this place, and especially did not like the line cook wiping his runny nose on his sleeve. Video available on request.

We arrived around 6.45pm and the line was already around the corner. To be fair we were expecting this, but try to avoid the peak times. The wait to the till was around 20 minutes and the food about 25. The staff were particularly good handing out menus and providing updates/ managing queue jumpers during the wait. Very professional considering... More

Wasn't sure what the big deal was about the burgers at this place on the main drag of Queenstown...a burger is a burger. But our lunch was great and lived up to the reputation on the street. The servings are huge and really enough for two people to share unless you are ravenous. Be patient..it takes awhile in line, but... More

It's a great burger. Not sure I'd say it's the best burger or that it cures cancer or anything. Fries are excellent and the sauces on the burger/sides is very well made. Enjoy mid afternoon for a break in the lines.

I was such a skeptic, but gosh did they prove me wrong! I'm definitely going in tomorrow! I tried the Bombay chicken burger with barbecue sauce and I loved it! I also took a bite off my husband's burger and I loved that too!!! Soo delish! Pure perfection.

Their burgers are yummy and huge!! It's a must try if you are in Queenstown. The queue is ALWAYS crazy here so if you don't want to stand around and wait then make sure you ring them up and order your burger in advance.
