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 Gott's!”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Perfect for casual meals. Don't look for atmosphere, but the food is tasty and very reasonably priced (especially by Napa standards).

Things to love:
* it's right next to the Oxbow market
* big shade awnings for outdoor eating in the heat of the day
* a heat-lamp toasting you for outdoor eating on a cool Napa night
* nicely-spiced sweet potato fries
* the yummy burgers on egg buns!
* family-friendly (nothing snobby about Gott's)
* did I mention that it's right next door to the Oxbow Market?

Yes, there can be a wait on a busy day, but that's only because it's such a popular spot and you're getting something cooked fresh for you, not drying up on a tray. Gott's is busiest on Farmer's Market days at lunch (Tuesdays and Saturdays), but we've never waited more than 10 minutes from "order to eat," and we've always found a table, inside or out, as we preferred (they give you a light-up alert thingy to tell you when the order's ready, so you can grab a table as soon as the order's in).

Reviewed August 23, 2013

Great burgers, lots of room inside and out, good location (next to Oxbow market, which is worth a visit).

“Gott's Roadside Napa”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

This place was on our radar from the start. Right next to Oxbow Public Market in Napa. Napa-tized yet unpretentious burger joint where you can get a great lunch. Service was a bit slow, but not aggravating. The fried zucchini was excellent (seasonal). Burgers were exceptional, really. But if you wish to deviate the Ahi Poke Crispy Taco's and the Fish Tacos are worthy contenders. Sweet potato fries are also awesome.

“Can't go wrong with the burgers, hot dogs and fries”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

Taking a break from "fancier" food, we ate at Gott's next to Oxbow Public Market. The wait was a little long but I very much enjoyed my cheeseburger, my husband enjoyed his hot dog and the fries were great too.

“Good casual food”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

They have good salads and supposedly good fish tacos, though we didn't try. Their fries were very good; burgers were ok. Milkshakes great!
The place has a 60's vibe - very retro!
Only complaint: you have to wait like 10 mins in between placing your order and getting your food.
