This is what used to be known to us old-timers as Taylor's Refresher. It has changed and gotten a bit "chichi," serving up food more oriented to city folks and tourists, rather than to the locals.

Although this place HAS been featured on at least one well-known food-oriented TV show, it really cannot compare to what it used to be in the 1970s. It USED to be a super burger stand with high quality food, but it changed along with much of the upper Napa valley. Too bad it is now a yuppie (or worse) hangout. Y'all will never know how good it used to be.

They used to have the best milkshakes in Napa County, but now they're average at best. Another good place bites the dust.

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