2011 Takeout Awards

We didn’t set out to honour the chain burger joints, in fact we tried hard to find a decent independent burger bar, but in the end, after much sampling, we all agreed that the best burger experience came from BurgerFuel (61 Tamaki Drive, Misson Bay, ph 09 521 0400).

This store is one of the more recent additions to the empire, having been added in 2009. They deserve being honoured for their store design, with its great booth seating, the plates that the burgers arrive on should you decide to dine in (real china, how lovely), but most importantly they pack a huge punch with their tasty sauces and coarsely ground beef patties.

We love the Ford Freakout (beef with bacon, avocado, aioli and relish) and their Flame Thrower chicken burger with chicken breast and jalapeno sauce.
