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.

“The Drive-In with two names....”
Reviewed June 15, 2013

Whether or not you call it "Gott's Roadside" or "Taylors Automatic Refresher" it is a must do when you are in the Napa Valley. Walk-up ordering and strictly outside eating is the way it's done and the place can get really crowded on weekends. But, they serve excellent burgers and shakes with an interesting variety of burgers that will please most everyone. Service was quick and friendly. I have had better fries...they could have been hotter but the order was generous.
This place certainly does not fit the fufu gourmet or "tries to hard to be hip" atmosphere of most of the eateries in the valley. Maybe that's why I like it.

Gott's had potentially the best Turkey Burger I've ever had. The sweet potato fries and shakes were amazing too!!

“Great burgers at lunch”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

We stopped in here for lunch after picking up some Model English Muffins at the Oxbow Market next store. We each had a burger and they were bigger than we needed but moist and cooked perfectly. We sat outside. Very clean place, great for lunch.

“Great food and shakes!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

On our recent trip to Napa, we walked into Gotts thinking it was just some diner. They have unbelievable shakes and great quality beef. It was a little pricey but I'm glad we ate there.
