Best Burger in Prague

Over at, Ted Gimalva writes that for his money, the best burger in Prague can be found at Jama.

I beg to differ. For me, the best burger in Prague can be found at Kojak’s in Vinohrady. It’s big, it’s messy, and they give you all kinds of options, including – and this is a deal-breaker for me when it comes to hamburgers – a choice of mustards. And their fries are just like I like ’em.

I’ve been going to Kojak’s since it opened, and it really is one of those places that doesn’t get enough respect. Its’ Mexican fare – inspired no doubt by Americanized Mexican food places like El Torito – is passable, with the fajitas being especially OK.

But the steaks are what to get at Kojak’s if you’re not into a burger. Big steaks.

And you can tell this post comes before lunch, no?

  1. Just wondering if this place and Don Pedro’s still exist since it’s been a few years since you wrote about them. I will be in Prague in a week and a half and am trying to plan out my eatting. 😀

  2. Kojak’s is still there, but under a different name. The burgers are still pretty good. But there are a few other excellent places to get a hamburger these days, namely Bohemian Bagel (any of their locations, including the one off the Old Town Square or in HoleÅ¡ovice) or TGI Friday’s, if you’re into that kind of thing. One other off-the-beaten-track tip would be Prague 6’s “Na Urale” pub on PuÅ¡kinovo námÄ›stí, which serves a burger called “Texasský masakr” (yes, that’s what they call it) which is quite good too.
