Description: Gott's Roadside is a different kind of burger joint. We serve juicy cheeseburgers with thick chocolate shakes, but our versions of these American classics are made-to-order from top-notch, locally sourced ingredients. Our menu goes beyond the beef to include a renowned Ahi tuna burger, fresh salads and tacos. Try finding those at your average drive-in. Our commitment to local sourcing also extends to the glass: our list of California wines and beers means you can order a cheeseburger with a high-end Napa Valley cabernet, or sip a San Francisco-brewed Anchor Steam alongside your spicy, sweet potato fries.

Good breakfast sandwiches and Burritos. Quick service and everyone was nice here. We ate at the location in Napa, but later realized there is a location on Hwy 29 near St Helena that was more convenient. Although we ate breakfast here, I hear it is a great burger joint. Nothing fancy, but good burgers and you can also order beer,... More

Gott's Roadside is the new name for Taylor's Refresher, which has been a St. Helena institution since the 1940s. (The Taylor's sign is still outside.) OK, it's "just" burgers, plus salads, chili, dogs, and sandwiches too, but what burgers! They are a fitting complement to the wine country vibe. And, let's face it, sometimes you get food overload and just... More

OK, it's basically a hamburger joint, but it's a good one. One of the few "very affordable" options in Napa Valley, the food is decent, staff are on the ball and the place is kept pretty clean. Gets super busy at the height of lunch time, so bear that in mind - it's not always a truly "fast" food place!

Great diner food! We had a delicious burger, a great hot dog, fries (cooked just the way I like them----not too skinny, not too wide, crispy on the outside), and a delicious chocolate milkshake. Can't wait to go back.

This roadside restaurant is very popular in St Helena. It serves great burgers, as one might expect. But they also serve several kinds of wine and beer which you enjoy outside on picnic tables. So Californian! Excellent salads, fresh tuna tacos, quite an interesting menu!!!! Super casual but the food is definitely a notch above ordinary!!

We had the Ahi tuna burger and Blue Ring Cheeseburger. The tuna was sushi grade tuna marinated and seared with cole slaw on a brioche bun. Tasty sweet bun with ginger, teriyaki style tuna burger served rare. Burger had cheddar, thick bacon, onion ring, BBQ sauce, and fresh pickles. Our side was onion rings fresh and sweet. I have to...

After eating fancy food and drinking great wine, it was nice to take a break and have a good old fashioned cheeseburger. I liked sitting outside at the picnic tables.

We like to try different hamburger joints and was in the area looking for somewhere casual to eat. We both had hamburgers, very tasty, but nothing spectacular.

The Original Gott's -(Formerly Taylor Refresher) is a must visit in Napa. Best Burgers Ever. Sweet potato fries rock as well.
