Born from a love of American icon like In-N-Out Burger, Black Burger launched post-lockdown and have been selling out every night. What makes them so good? 100% Black Origin Wagyu beef patties stacked on pillowy buns from Grizzly, paired with the freshest Canterbury ingredients. All burgers can be served on gluten free buns and the vegetarian/vegan patties from The Brothers Green pack a punch.

2. Bacon Bros

One of the Ōtautahi Christchurch’s most popular joints with a near-constant line of punters. Bacon Bros inside Little High Eatery have more than 18 burgers, their massive menu caters for everyone. They’ve sourced coconut bacon, so no one has to miss out, and it’s not just burgers. Their deep-fried cauliflower is famous in its own right, and their hand cut fries are a must-have side. Their second premises, Shaka Bros, at Riverside Market has an even bigger menu of burgers bound to get your mouth watering – all served with their specialty Shaka Sauce. And while you’re at it, check out the Bros’ latest venture, Beers, a new BBQ joint in an old, abandoned warehouse down Blenheim Road. Picture slow cooked BBQ meat, and hearty burgers that will more than fulfil your burger craving.

Wash it all down with a Duck Island ice cream milkshake, a Sawmill beer or a house-made cocktail. Be sure to check out their sundae bar for dessert. Catering for all dietary needs, Burger Burger takes pride in making everyone feel at home. In fact, the veggie burger is so gigantic (and tasty) that getting your mouth around it is a feat of its own.

You can still spot the beloved caravan at local events or at Common Ground on Fridays.
