Now this place is so famous that you may have already heard about it before you have even stepped foot in New Zealand. The one of a kind (not a franchise), one and only ferg burger. It all starts with the size of the burger alone! these bad boys are literally the size of my face! They are HUGE! I wouldn't even recommend getting fries (although they are delicious! and so are the onion rings!) because the burger alone is enough to satisfy. So the main question that goes around is what is it that makes these burgers so good, surely a burger is just a burger right? wrong! Ferg Burger have taken every aspect about what makes a burger good, pulled them all together and boomfa! Come up with this incredible creation, feeding the people of Queenstown since the year 2000. An example of the menu; Chief Wiggum - pork belly, crackling, hash brown, Apple saucey goodness and salad - My favourite! Cock-a-doodle-oink - butterfly crumbed chicken breast with bacon and avocado! Little Bambi - Venison patty with plum chutney, salady greens and delictable sauces! just to name a few, and they also cater for the vege and the gluten free. Winner
Ferg Baker is the brother of Ferg Burger and is conveniently right beside it! For all things savoury, sweet and fresh bread loaves!

Fresh bread - baked fresh everyday and filling the streets early morning of deliciousness - pick up a whole loaf or have it sliced to go, doesnt get fresher than that! Pies! If you have been in NZ for a little while you should have noticed that we love a good pie! Savoury i'm talking. And these guys nail them! With handmade in house pastry thats perfectly cooked and flakey with amazing fillings such as; Lamb & Kumara, Pork Belly & Apple, Thai Chicken & Beef cheek. My oh my i love a good pie!
