Burger Queen is a small, classic Kiwi-style burger joint located in Mt Albert that's been wowing locals for decades with their menu of great-value burgers.
There's a huge selection to choose from, with everything from the usual beef and chicken to snapper and scotch fillet sandwiched between gourmet burger buns. Pick up a burger to take away for a meal at home or by one of the surrounding gardens, or pull up a seat by the back wall and admire the pinboard full of handwritten notes from the community.

The hardest part about a trip to Burger Queen is choosing from the menu. There’s three columns of options on the blackboard to tempt you, with around 10 to 12 in each. I left there kicking myself because I didn’t ask what the record is for the longest time spent choosing a burger. All that aside we come to the easiest part about a trip to Burger Queen: the masticating. My choice was the Beast Burger, named after NZ Warrior Manu Vatuvei, and it was as hard to tackle as the man himself, but only much, much more enjoyable. The thing towered over my can of Sprite, a steaming stack of awesome wrapped in tinfoil. Beef, steak (yes, both), bacon, chicken, egg, caramelised onion, lettuce, mayo and special sauce. I thought of words of comfort from the Mitre 10 Mega guy, “BIG IS GOOD”, as I powered through it, then fell into a beautiful food coma. This place is legendary, you must try it.
