What’s better than a big juicy burger to fill your stomach? We’re not sure either! Whether it’s a lunchtime indulgence or a dinner feast, the heart of the city is filled with awesome burger spots to check out. This May, tuck into some of the best burgers Auckland has to offer for $15 and under as part of Cheap & Cheerful Eats. 


Fish burger | $15 | BillyPot, Harbour Eats & The Auckland Fish Market

BillyPot’s fish burgers are exceptional! But who would expect anything less from one of the best little seafood eateries in the city centre? For $15 all May, their crumbed fish burger with lettuce, pickles, tartare sauce and fries on the side is all you need to satisfy your burger cravings. 

Mr Murdochs

Cheeseburger, vegetarian or pulled pork | $15 | Mr Murdoch’s Rooftop Tavern, 16 Fort Lane

We love Mr Murdoch’s for the chill vibes their rooftop hangout provides, and their tasty burgers make it just that much better. We recommend the pulled pork cheeseburger with smoked chipotle slaw. If you’d rather skip the meat the grilled eggplant burger with mozzarella and salad greens is extra yummy. All burgers come with fries.

Wise Boys

Classic ‘Cheeseburger’ and fries combo | $15 | Wise Boys, Harbour Eats 

It’s everything you love about the classic cheeseburger, but without the beef. A burger that’s good for the planet without sacrificing anything in taste, Wise Boys’ Classic Cheese comprises of their kidney and black bean patty, lettuce, cheese, red onion, tomato, pickles, tomato relish and American-style mustard. You can make it gluten free for an extra $2 too!


12 delicious creations | $15 | Burger Burger, Commercial Bay 

It’s no surprise that with a name like Burger Burger this restaurant will have an extensive, and mighty delicious, burger menu. All month, Burger Burger’s burgers (that’s a tongue twister) are just $15 and decision making will be hard! There are 12 creations to choose from, ranging from super meaty to plant-based vegan goodness. The Mc Fly is hard to pass up – fried chicken breast, bacon, swiss cheese, mayo, cos lettuce and BBQ sauce… drooling yet?
