Best for burgers in Auckland

If you ask us, you can’t beat a good burger (especially if you’ve had a few drinks!). And in recent years with the development of the gastro-pub, the burger has turned from fast food to fab food! It’s no longer the cheap option in the fast food joint down the road, it’s gone all gourmet on us… and we love it!

Aucklanders have welcomed the gourmet burger with open arms and empty stomachs so the Menus team, rather gladly, got together a hungry search party to check out Auckland’s best buns!

Burger Fuel is probably the most famous of Auckland’s ‘gourmet burger’ places and with 17 locations throughout Auckland, you’re never too far away from your next fix! We recommend the ‘Bacon Backfire’ or the ‘Bastard’ but make sure you go with an empty stomach because these burgers will definitely fuel your appetite!

If you’d rather build your own masterpiece than pick off a menu, then Burger Wisconsin is the one for you. Choose bases such as aged anguspure scotch fillet steak or tandoori-spiced chicken thighs; next add your extras (we love their trimmed middle bacon and fresh avocado) before finally choosing one or more of the restaurant's scrumptious sauces. Voila, you have the burger of your dreams!

You can’t use the words Auckland and burger in the same sentence without mentioning the icon that is The White Lady. Situated on Commerce St in Central Auckland, this ‘burger van at the side of the road’ has been feeding the hungry, hungover and just plain curious for the past 60 years. You’ll sit on a crate at the side of the road and the burger might cost you a little more but believe us, you haven’t tasted Auckland until you’ve tasted a White Lady burger – they’re what fast food is all about!

If it’s an award-winning burger that you’re after than head down to Handmade Burgers on New North Road, the former winner of Metro Magazine’s Best Burger award. As you might have guessed from the name, all their burgers are HUGE – so make sure you’re hungry before you go. 

You can get just about any type of cuisine in Ponsonby and that’s true for good burgers too. Murder Burger on Ponsonby road is great if you're feeling like you could, well, murder a burger. They’ve got more options and varieties on their menu than you can shake a stick at and even do fish burgers (for the non-meat eaters), wraps (for the calorie conscious) and ‘Monkey Fists’ – smaller burgers for smaller appetites. 

Prefer the pub atmosphere to a takeaway joint, fear not – there are some good burgers to be had in many of Auckland’s bars. The Waterfront in the Viaduct is one of our favourites offering you a choice of the Deluxe Cheeseburger, Chicken Burger or Lamb Burger.

Meanwhile, The Bog in Parnell, Danny Doolans in the Viaduct and The Muddy Farmer on Wyndham Street all have great burgers on their menu too.
