I had heard of other students going to various burger joins in Prague 1 and Prague 2, but their lackluster reviews left me unconvinced. So, I decided to do a little venturing outside the city centre with the hopes of stumbling across some local treasure. Although the language barrier can be intimidating, I've always had the best results of finding local gems by asking, you guessed it, the locals.

After, asking some Czech students at the university throughout the week, it appeared the general consensus was that I "needed" to go check out Yes! Burger. That following Monday, I dragged my pink-haired friend Kate along with me to see what the hype was really all about. I have to admit, I was somewhat skeptical as to whether or not Yes! Burger would be able to hold up against my burger standards.

I also have to admit that I was a fool for every doubting Yes! Burger in the first place, because this place is the bees knees! Not only do they have an array of burgers to choose from, they also have options for vegetarians as well as vegans too! Plus, unlike the bourgeois-burger restaurants found in the city center, Yes! Burger won't break your wallet. You can get a cheese burger AND a side of fries for just 97 Kc which comes out to being roughly $3.90. Although it's a cheap find, the quality of both the food and service is top notch. Oh, and did I mention it's open 24/7? So whether you're going out to lunch with friends or taking a midnight study break during finals to go grab some grub, make sure Yes! Burger is on your list of go-to's while you're studying abroad in Praha!
