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 burgers and shakes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Big burgers, excellent onion rings, yummy shakes, and a pretty tasty spicy tomato soup. This would have been a five star burger if they had hatch green chile to put on their green chile burger. You shouldn't call a burger a green chile burger if you don't put green chiles on it and jalapeños are not green chiles. Yes they are green and they are chiles, but they are not the same as a hatch green chile!

“Gott's Rocks !”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

Stopped at Gott's to eat lunch. Ordered a green chili cheeseburger and fries. Awesome!!! This is a burger stand on steroids!!! Service was quick. Outdoor picnic area makes lunch quick and easy. I was told this place was featured on Diners, Dives, and Drive Inns. Can't confirm that, but if not....it should be!! Make the stop and drive into yesterday.....stop at Gott''s Roadside!!

“Great burgers and fries!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2013

Our group had the Western burger (?) with blue cheese and an onion ring, fish tacos, and the ahi sandwich. All were terrific, especially the ahi sandwich. We also tried the garlic fries, sweet potato fries and the chili cheese fries. We had a really hard time deciding which we liked best!

“Ok but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2013

We went to Gotts after hearing much hype about the burgers being some of the best in the US. The restaurant is quirky with a nice nostalgic feel and appears to be constantly busy. My husband chose the Wisconsin Sourdough Burger, I had the fish tacos and we shared a portion of sweet potato fries. The food was ready within 10 minutes for us to collect from the counter. Verdict - the food was tasty but not amazing. We both agreed that the best part of the meal were the fries.
