Unless you are a growing teenager, two adults can split a burger. They are huge and very tasty. The small fries is also enough for two adults. The fruit smoothies are yummy. Convenient street parking, friendly and helpful staff.

Great burgers. Huge variety. Reasonably priced. Best kumara fries ever. Kids meals. Outdoor tables with a few seats inside.

NZ burger testing has gone pretty much out of hands, and the best this far has been Red Star's chicken burger. Service was friendly and fast, prices acceptable for this quality, I recommend!

Living in Queenstown, the obvious assumption is that we'd stay local for a good burger, but Red Star have got it dialled so much so that we gladly make the trip over just for it. Top food and always such great staff on the counter!...More
