The Best Burgers
The classic burger - it can be done so well, or so very not. We’ve searched out some of the best burgers in Auckland, from old favourites to gourmet restaurant varieties and one thing is for sure - there has never been a better time to put your face into that beautiful combination of patty and bun.
Food Truck Garage
City Works Depot, 90 Wellesley St , Auckland
Healthy burgers! They actually call them sandwiches cos it sounds healthier, but the Food Truck Garage in the City Works Depot offers up delicious healthy burger options. Try out the Beefroot burger (the pattie has beetroot and carrot as well as beef, all on a spelt wheat bun), or the super-duper Chilli Chickette, with harissa, red cabbage, coriander, cucumber and mint. Yum! Burgers are $10 every Friday and Saturday nights.

Citizen Park
424 New North Road, Auckland, 1352
We love Citizen Park for all manner of reasons - the great outdoor area, the cool underground bathrooms, the retractable roof… and the great diner-style menu. The burgers here are all served with fries in red plastic baskets. We love the classic burger (1/4 pound beef, pickles, mustard and cheese), but the Tokyo burger with karaage chicken and wasabi mayo, and the Bushman which has a wild venison pattie are also great.

Velvet Burger
18 Fort St, Auckland, Auckland, 1010
This little upstart from Dunedin’s created a big name for itself from their Fort Street location, in part due to the interesting mix of ingredients that make up their burgers. We recommend the Homegrown (Lamb, Beetroot & Horopito Chutney or a Minty Yoghurt Sauce, Aioli & Velvet Relish) or the Hottie (for the fieriness and grilled mango!).

Ostro Restaurant & Bar
Seafarers Building, 52 Tyler St, Britomart, Auckland, 1010
Definitely the most high-end of the burgers on this list, but made worth it by the surrounding that you’ll eat it in. Ostro’s Beef brisket burger is fantastic, with caramelised aubergine and pickled courgette on toasted brioche bun. The accompanying chips are so good that they WILL get stolen by your fellow diners.

Big J's Takeaways
4/1 Melton Road, Auckland, 1060
A Mt Wellington icon, customers eagerly wait the 'burger of the week' announcement salivating at the prospect of another hunger well sated. Of the regular options, our favourite is the Super Steak Burger - mushroom, cheese, bacon and delectable marinated steak.
