    Default Where can I get a GOOD American burger?

    I've been here for three months now (from the States) and man, I am craving a decent [cheese]burger (not McD's - McDonald's is YUCK!) - I am in Ashburton but would gladly travel to Christchurch with my [non-American] husband to get one....So please, someone offer me some insight... I will be VERY happy Other than that, I love it here and am incredibly happy...

    We have Burger Fuel here in the North Island, Not sure if they have any branches in the South Island yet...- If they don't you can buy a franchise from them!!! Their website is down so I cant check store locations... They are pretty tasty.....

    You have Burger Wisconsin, makes a whopper look like a dwarf. If you get up to Auckland the is USA Wendy's.

    NZ has great beef...you could make your own american burger... whats wrong, you dont like the kiwi burger? I would have never thought of putting a slice of red beet on my burger, but it was great
    beef
    bun
    tomato
    lettuce
    onion
    pickle
    mayo
    ketchup
    yellow mustard
    and cheese, if your not lactose intolerant
    .....the mystery to an American hamburger

    Our kids used to eat McD's when we were in the UK, but don't like them here and haven't asked for them in two years. They seem to prefer SubWay as take-out food of choice....

    I'm with Duke on the make your own table. Halswell Butchery in Chch does good burger patties - they use good quality beef and the burgers don't shrink when you cook 'em!
