Stopped in here on our last night in Whangamata. Great, friendly staff, super on to it and service was speedy considering there were five of us and all had minor changes to our take away burgers. I ordered one of the steak burgers and unfortunately this was cheap and chewy ! The rest of my group ordered normal beef patties... More

I regularly visit Whangamata with a group of friends and every time we make sure we stop at least once at Soul Burger. Absolutely delicious burgers, filled with flavor. Good quality food.

Went to Soul Burger as a group over the weekend, the service was fast considering it was very busy! I have 'The Whanga' burger which was amazing, and tastes super fresh & juicy! I would recommend it. Overall a good place to eat in Whangamata, you would definitely need to be hungry though, because those burgers are HUGE.

Good food but if busy the wait can be massive, if phoning ahead it doesn't always mean you will skip the line since you have to pay before they start making the food!

We tried soul burger for dinner while staying in Whangamata with friends. The second night while discussing dinner everyone agreed that why go anywhere else when we had such good burgers the night before. Yum. It's well priced considering the burgers are decent size and the ingredients are fresh. Everyone was happy with their burgers. If you love mushrooms then... More

Not sure if it was a bad night at Soulburger but we had to wait almost an hour for luke warm burgers with cold soggy "fries". The long wait was unexpected and handled badly, when we queried where our order (well after the expected 20 minute wait) was the response was rude and arrogant to the point others also waiting...

Geat burgers in town with many options to choose. Usually orders do not take long and attendants are pretty helpful.
