Back again at Gott's for the 2nd time in a couple of years. The experience was very much the same as before. Except now I would call the food average. The prices haven't changed that much, but still overpriced for what you get. The picnic area behind is nice with shade under some giant oak trees. If you get there... More

This place is worth the wait. The food is awesome and the staff if so friendly. The burgers are amazing and you must get the sweet potato fries. And you know what is better than lunch or dinner? Breakfast at gotts! The breakfast tacos so good it is not even funny! You will not be disappointed

You order at the window and seat yourself outside at a picnic table and wait for your name to be called to pick up your food. I tried the Vietnamese Chicken Salad and it seemed fresh and was OK. My husband had a Green Chile Cheese Burger and a Angus Hot Dog. He said the Hot Dog was really good!... More

We were told that this was a "must go" place and it certainly is. We stood in a long line that moved quickly and ordered cheese burgers, green chili burgers, garlic fries, regular fries, onion rings and fish tacos. There was absolutely NOTHING left when we finished- not a bite! The intent was to order the sides to try, but... More

We ate at some of the nicest 5 star restaurants in the area and this was the best meal I had on our trip. We were only there for 3 nights and we had lunch here both day's. I am in love with the tuna tacos, but everything was delicious!

Stopped in for late lunch after wine tasting at Hunnicutt Winery. Had Mary's crispy chicken, green chili burger and garlic fries, also had the special which was zucchini fries, everything was excellent as usual. Long line but worth the wIt

I never would have guessed this quaint, retro place was part of a "chain," but seeing the others listed when I punched this one into the search line made me aware. It was recommended to us by George at the Castello di Amorosa just up the road when we asked where the locals eat. He was from Austria, so it... More

I had read about Gott's and we stumbled across it while wine tasting one afternoon. Gott's knows exactly what they are and they do it well. We had the ahi burger which was outstanding. Also tried the california chicken sandwich which was very good. Burgers, garlic fries and shakes looked great. While lines can be long, Gott's operates like a... More

Quality food, quality service, and spotless cleanliness in a roadside burger joint. Best garlic fries I have ever had! Finely minced garlic integrated into the fries with buttery oil; not chopped garlic just dumped on top. Really good flavor profile. Burger "egg buns" have substance, but they're not heavy. And--naturally, given the location--wine is on the menu too. Napa Valley... More

Well this one was a no-brainer. As we were rolling into town and saw the huge lineup outside this roadside cafe... we KNEW we'd be hitting this one during our visit to St.Helena & Calistoga! Went back for a late lunch (missed the line... Yay!!!). My husband had a blue cheese burger (to-die-for! And he rarely compliments a burger!) I... More
