There’s something about tucking into a deliciously juicy burger that makes life that much better. We’re pretty sure that a burger is a staple in any diet, so we’ve rounded up Newmarket’s most famous must-try burgers that will provide instant satisfaction.
Corner Burger – Just Beet It
Indulging in a burger alongside a craft beer (and obviously a side of hand-cut fries) is the only way to dine when visiting Corner Burger; the Just Beet It deserves a special mention. A thick, flavoursome Moroccan beetroot patty topped with minted yoghurt sauce, roasted peppers, a creamy blue cheese sauce, and to crisp it all up – shallots and cucumber… need we say anymore! And for those who aren’t about that carb life, the naked burgers here are (almost) just as good, served as a salad.
309 Broadway, L4 Westfield Newmarket
Bird on a Wire – Grilled BLT Burger
Bird on a Wire’s Grilled BLT is on a whole different level to any classic bacon butty you’ve tasted before. Featuring their famous grilled chicken, strips of delicious candied bacon, pickled onion for a bit of tang, avocado, cheese, tomato, cos, and creamy garlic mayo to top it all off.
277 Broadway, L3 Westfield Newmarket
Burger Burger – Pulled Pork Burger
Burger Burger is an Auckland institution when it comes to the business of making burgers. They offer up fresh and innovative flavours with only the best quality produce, whilst changing up their specials with creative combinations (think Italian lasagne burgers, sushi burgers and more!) – their staples are consistently delicious. Our pick? The Pulled Pork Burger – slow cooked for 6 hours, it’s filled with juicy, tender pork, homemade BBQ sauce, apple mint slaw and mayo. Add pickles – trust us on this one.
3B York Street
The Lumsden – Southern Style Chicken Burger
If a big, classic American burger is more your style, The Lumsden offers exactly that. The Southern Style Chicken Burger is not to be missed, the ultimate crispy chicken served with lettuce, tomato, bacon and mango salsa.
444 Kyhber Pass Road
The Candy Shop – Korean Fried Chicken Burger
The Candy Shop are famous for their KFC (Korean Fried Chicken) so when we heard they were turning this menu delight into a burger, it’s safe to say that our excitement levels went through the roof. Filled with Korean fried chicken breast, buttermilk slaw, smoked cheddar, pickles and sweet and spicy sauce all between brioche buns with a side of favourite Kumara Fries.
2-8 Osborne Lane
Billy – Double Beef and Cheese Burger
Billy Cafe is easily one of Newmarket’s most Insta-worthy food stops with their meals featuring all over social media shot by everyday foodies and bloggers alike. As far as burgers go, we think Billy have it on lock. Serving up a double beef and cheese burger with all the trimmings – prime beef patties, melted cheese, mustard, pickles and fried onions. They are also famous for their Criss Cross Fries, and we’re certain you can’t have a burger without.
Xerox Building, Ground floor, 79 Carlton Gore Road
The Broadway Diner – King Burger
One of Newmarket’s O.G takeaway haunts, The Broadway Diner is still serving some of the best, basic, no fuss burgers around. The big red food truck parks itself on Broadway from 6pm until the very early hours of the morning, catering for those after a midnight feast or a weeknight takeaway fix. We recommend the King burger, filled with copious amounts of cheese and sauce, crisp lettuce and tomato, and a juicy beef patty – add a hash brown and some bacon, and you will have yourself a real winner!

The Claddagh – Halloumi Burger
One of life’s greatest pleasures is a burger and a beer at the pub, and when it comes to pub food The Claddagh does it well. They have plenty of burger options, but one of our favourites would have to be the Halloumi Burger. It comes with all the classic trimmings, and plenty more options to add on. It doesn’t get much better.
