Gott's Roadside

All I can say is if you are looking for a piece of America when things were simple this is the place to stop. This is one of the few walk-up restaurants that I have been to where the food was excellent and the atmosphere charming! I was so happy to be able to share this with my kids. I saw Taylor's 2 months ago while going to Napa with my sister who didn't want to stop, so I had to make a special trip with my family to eat there. It was well worth it. This is a must for anyone who loves road trips and all the joys it can bring. The hamburgers were juicy and the meat itself was high quality. The secret sauce was delicious. The french fries had a nice crisp texture and the soda was fresh and full of fizz.

This weather beaten with the original name of the restaurant is a nice nod to the past.
