Honestly, after 2,5 years leaving my home country Spain for coming and making al a living in Prague, I can say I have found my favorite place in the city. 4 main reasons: The best Burgers and homemade fries - Burgers are just the best ones I have tried in Prague after 2 years trying many different ones. Price is quite normal (260 czk for the Burger with homemade fries and chili mayo, all included). Good beer at a normal price (~40 czk / 0.5 l) Very good service and good customer focus - Table next to us got nachos that after 20 minutes got a bit cold. They asked to have them heated again and waiter kindly took them and warmed them up again, and my feeling is that they put some more nachos. Great atmosphere there - Bar is nicely decorated with paintings in the wall and some really cool pictures. At around 20h two guys started playing live music and atmosphere simply turned into paradise for anyone who appreciates live music. So definitely I would recommend to anyone who loves burgers to pass by and try one of those. Or if you just simply like American style food and you enjoy live music, this is definitely a must.

This is now the second time we have been here as a couple and must say that the food here is really great. Make sure you go hungry as their burgers have so much eating in them. The starter we had were the cheese sticks which came with a nice homemade dip. The burgers were really nice and the fries came with a homemade dip also. There is a big selection of beef, chicken and vegetarian burgers so there is something for everyone. If you don’t like loud live music I recommend eating there for lunch but if you don’t mind a bit of music there is live music on at night times. Make sure you get there early tho as this place gets busy quite fast!

Take into consideration this review comes from a Scotsman's point of view and like all true jocks it takes a team of big men and a safe cracker to get money out of our wallets I landed on Monday for my first time ever in Prague and after all the normal #### that comes with other folk trusted to book holiday stuff ,we thought we would try this place for a bit of chill as I had read so much about it . First thing you notice is a sign saying " if you looking for fine dining then keep on walking " and they right it ain't fine dining but you would be stupid to miss the chance. The food in this place would make Braveheart need a lie down after it , and if you unlucky enough to visit at a busy time then enjoy the snug at the back with very large beers and a service that is so quick the taste of the last drink has not even left your mouth before they got you another . don't even try and be posh when you get to the table and see what portion you are given , grab a napkin and use what at the end of your arms . food is great , service is attentive and fast but not pushy and the live music is goooood. Sorry guys , forgot name of lassie that was playing on Monday ,but she had the place bouncing . Just remember to advise how u like the burger , my partners was bit red for her liking but that was our problem. nothing to do with establishment . give the place a try , infact I advise going when bit busier , then u get a LOT of good beer and great food

Went to Sad Man’s Tongue with my girlfriend and two friends and had a fantastic time. Live music was awesome, the vibe threw us straight to 1980’s USA, food was unreal and people were super nice, particularly the Manager Nick, a truly lovely person. Will be back soon!!!!!!!!!!

We love quick eats but often have difficulty finding food for the whole family. This place was perfect! Each of us has different dietary preferences and had no problems at this location - heck, we even visited twice during our stay. We recommend the vegetarian burgers, portabello burgers, beef burger w/bacon and chicken strips. You MUST have fries as well!!! Well done everyone. The service was exceptional and so welcoming and friendly. We were always served quickly and each person we encountered was very friendly. The owner even came over to introduce himself and to welcome us to this establishment and to let us know of their newer location Black Betty’s - we’ll be sure to visit during our next holiday.

Definitely a place to visit if you are hungry. The burgers, beef, chicken and vegan are truly how you imagine a "Great" burger to look and taste. The restaurant is awesome, the music and atmosphere is up lifting, even after a 10 hour walking day throughout Prague we all had smiles and laughter. The lady who took our order was so helpful and happy, well done for loving your job and making customers comfortable. Certainly recommend to meat and veggie burgerlovers.

I've came here with my parents who were at first very skeptical about the underground looks which this great place offers (dont mind them, they're pompous asses). We got offered a table by waitress who correctly asked us about our preffered language of speech and as it turned out we spoke the same language so we had a laugh about that. It took me a bit of time to choose one of the great looking burgers there, ive finally chosen a burger with double cheese and bacon, my parents ordered great homemade fries, they rarely eat food like this and they were so overwhelmed by its quality and taste that they've ordered one more portion! There was great acoustic live music playing in the background and it was just the last bit to make this place so good! We also got served some shots for free by our waitress, who was always smiling and was very cheerful and was just a sight for sore eyes! Overall great great experience 110/10. p.s. Ak máte nejaký bodovací systém pre obsluhu tak dajte milej slovenskej slečne nejakú hviezdičku lebo bola najlepšia <3

Myself and my boyfriend visited today after my cousin recommended we visit, and we had a fab time! Food and drinks were really tasty and super affordable, especially for the quality. The staff were so friendly and accommodating - the owner even sat with us and recommended lots of different places for us to visit whilst we’re here. We’re in Prague for a few more days so we hope to come here again before we head home!

we went there on our first day to Prague. since our arrival, we had a few places we wanted to check,with this one being on our top 3 because we really love burgers. when we arrived there,the place was pretty crowded,with no tables free and we were offered a place at the bar until one was being made available. they told us that the waiting time would be somewhere around 15 minutes and initially I really considered leaving and coming back some other time...BUT I 100% am glad that we waited. it took around 5 minutes to be already seated and have our drinks ready. we ordered the jalapeno burger and the jimi hendrix and I don't even know where to start from. the burgers themselves were great, the fries delicious (especially that they were not frozen,as you usually find in most places) and the sauce was incredible (I'm pretty sure that it was also homemade). As a bonus, the live performance was awesome and we simply enjoyed listening to the girl's songs. Regarding the price we found it fairly reasonable especially when you realize that you have the burger,sauce and fries included. Now the fact that the paying is done by cash only, there's an ATM at the entrance. As a conclusion,we can't wait to come back!

This is supposedly one of the best burger places in Prague, you'll find it if you roam the little streets around the center. The offer sandwiches and burgers, with fries aside. The portions are rather large (170 g) with a double patty option which is honestly way way too much. But the burgers are rather generic and don't have that special something to them. Also, the staff can be a bit too friendly, and the places gets packed in the evening.

The other half is a big fan of reading up on all the best restaurants and places to go ahead of our trips away, he read about this place and had told me about their incredible burgers. On our first night in the city we happened to be walking along a street and came across the place completely by accident. It’s a little hidden gem, so unassuming from the street, it was only because he had done his “pre-trip reading” that he recognised the name and as we had no real plans that night but to wander and see where the night took us we decided to go in and try it out. I can tell you that we weren’t disappointed at all, the burgers were incredible. There were 4 of us and we all agreed that we couldn’t remember a burger so good and we all discussed previous burgers that we thought at the time were good but that these “kicked the ass of” 🤣 The atmosphere was brilliant and the staff were warm and friendly and had a good laugh with us. For a Monday night, the place was really busy, every table was full. There was a live singer who was excellent and played a good mix of music that somehow we all with different tastes enjoyed, so much so that we stayed drinking and listening and chatting long after our meal. This restaurant is definitely a hidden gem worth hunting out!

Though it is the first restaurant in Prague that requires me to wait. I love it. 1. The waiters speak exceptional English , because they are Americans. The service is great with great flexibility. I was able to order when waiting as we are in a hurry and our food are ready once we are on the table. 2. The waiter is outgoing and energetic, she even socializes with a customer while working because he is lonely in Christmas Eve. My huge respect. 3. The burgers are nice, very juicy and the meat is tender. The bread complements the meat well. 4. Love the beer, they have the best house beer in Prague and I love'in it

We read about this place and thought we would try it. The best decision for a long time. The staff were fantastic and the surroundings were unique. Great food and great music. Very reasonably priced with a large menu. The choker burgers were something special and more than enough for those with big appetites

Off the normal path, hidden on a side street behind a monument, Sad Man’s Tongue was one of our best finds in Prague. After opening the door and walking down into the restaurant, we were heartily greeted by the bartender, waitress, and even the owner himself. The food was absolutely amazing (Buffalo Chicken Tenders and Cherry BBQ Bacon Burger) and only second compared to the atmosphere and personalities found in this establishment. Top notch restaurant and a MUST to visit in Prague for Expats and Locals.

I absolutely loved this place when I visited Prague, so much so that me and my Spanish friend decided to visit multiple times. The service is incredible, always very attentive and extremely friendly. We ever had the chance to chat with the owner. The food is great as well and the portions are definitely American sized, so you won't end up hungry once your done. The beer prices are also very fair (for Prague) with a very good amount of variety in both food and drink. I also have to say, the music was great, I'm a huge fan of rock music and it was always constant. There's also live music !! I definitely recommend you stop by this place at least once if you're in Prague ! The only downside is that you can only pay with cash, but that's just a small fault in an otherwise perfect establishment.
