Burger Queen

Taste it, you will like it.

Hidden away in the burb of Mount Albert, this small, rustic spot is the very embodiment of an Aotearoa local takeaway. No flashy fit out here, just hardwood floors, a chalk-board menu and the smells of fried and sizzling delights. With prices to match its low-key appearance, Burger Queen can't be beat on value - you'll find a the burgers juicy, flavourful and generous - however the patties do leave a little to be desired when it comes to quality. They're big and tasty, but a little... cheap?

Consider this the ultimate evolution of the fairground burger, but with better salad and all the trimmings - plus the charm of a community haunt and likelihood of you munching your burger perched on the neighbour's concrete block fence. Choice is abundant, with plenty of variety and hefty temptations (The Beast - beef, chicken, steak, pineapple, egg and bacon) beefing up the classics. Generous to a fault, the Queen is worth the travel for those in search of a satisfying burger that won't cost you the earth. As their slogan goes: Taste it, you will like it. Truth.
