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.

Gott's is located right off the main highway through Napa, and a great spot to stop for lunch! They have plenty of picnic tables for large groups, and fish tacos are the best on the menu! Only negatives are the bathrooms, and usually a long wait in line to order food and receive.

We decided to eat at Gott's Roadside for lunch while in St. Helena. What a fun roadside stand-plenty of dining space, not just in front but with picnic tables in the backyard too. The menu has a variety of foods, shakes and of course because it's in Napa Valley they even serve wine (and beer)! We had a bacon cheeseburger... More

We've driven past Gotts several times and thought it was just another burger joint. That's not the case and I wished I learned this sooner! We had the ahi poke tacos, the chicken sandwich with jalapeño slaw, and chili. We loved the flavors so much, we'll be back tomorrow to try some more items. The grassy outdoor picnic area, extensive... More

We got to sit outside and enjoy NAPA. Great burgers, fries and onion rings. Tasted even better after having a lot of wine. Oh, and the milk shakes are the best I've ever had.

I had the Ahi Tuna Tacos which were just delicious follwed by a milkshake. The 5 of us all had different things and no complaints. The california chicken sandwich... More

Sweet potatoe fries with ranch dressing and a psitachio Milkshake...mmmm Long lines waited over 45 mins from lining up, to ordering, to getting food, but definately worth it. My husband got the Wisconsin burger, garlic fries and a chocolate shake..equally delish Try it for lunch if youre doing... More

This was NOT my first visit to the "Refresher", formerly known as Taylor's Refresher on the main drag at the Napa / St. Helena Border. Not bar far. It is a must when my wife and I are in the area, despite what other plans we may have. We actually plan around a stop. As anyone who has read my... More

I wish there was a Gotts or Taylor's refresher near me! They have fantastic cheese burgers and the best onion rings around. If I got one of the shakes, I think I'd be done for the day. We also got a tuna "burger", which was more like sushi grade tuna gently sear marked on a bun. They also have a... More

We were told about this ace by a local who worked at Freemark Abbey. So we stopped by for Cheese burgers and garlic fries and choc shake. Couldn't believe how delicious this was!

We passed Gott's on the way up to Calistoga and promised ourselves we would stop on the way back to Napa. We did and were really impressed. This is an old style drive in with an updated menu. We had the fish tacos. They were amazingly fresh and tasty. I will tell you that we regret not ordering a hamburger.... More
