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.

A good blue-collar departure from the otherwise white-collar Napa dining scene

This is a straight-up burgers-and-fries place along the side of the road. Just the ambiance we were looking for after a few days of sipping wine and eating fine food.

This place is a kick. It's clean, has outdoor heaters, and a nice lawn. It's very clean. And the food is yummy.

My husband & I and our friends got in to our hotel (The Harvest Inn, which is a wonderful place to stay!) late and the concierge (Roxan, who is also wonderful!) suggested, since we were tired and hungry, but didn't want to go to a fancy, expensive place to eat a big meal, we try Gotts, which is right down...

I have to admit that the line in front of the counter was the reason we investigated this place. It's out door seats in the garden but somewhat noisy waiter calling the orders makes it still a very nice experience. Loved the tacos, the burger was very good and the fries average. However you have your food and beer outdoor... More

I am a limousine driver and recently had 10 people that were touring the wine country and wanted a burger. I took them to Gott's in St. Helena and they were very impressed with the food. It is an old style burger place with a lot of options including mahi mahi tacos and several burger choices, as well as others... More

Great lunch spot for a burger and fries and a shake or a beer. The food is good. They have only outside picnic table dining; so be sure weather is nice. The garlic fries are unique.

Really fun happening spot when you need food after wine binging! Walk up outside counter; lines can be really long but worth the wait! Great burgers, reuben, patty melts hot dogs, shakes, cod beer, god wine. Garlic Fries! Sit outside on picnic tables under the trees.

Stopped here between winery tours and couldn't have been happier. I love burgers and this was one of the best. The onion rings were also rave worthy - big batter fried rings. If you're not a burger fan there was a lot of other options on the menu. I just wish I lived closer so I could try them all!

You have to go to Gott's Roadside, formerly known as Taylor's Refresher, in St Helena. This is a throwback drive up diner known for it's quick order lunch items and is a place to sit outside and enjoy a great lunch. You will love this place.

Not an inexpensive stop for burger and fries, but great food. I really like their shakes. I had the Wisconsin Sourdough burger and it was great.

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.
