Gott’s Roadside is a great, relatively inexpensive restaurant right on the Embarcadero. The line is usually long but moves fast. Order first and they buzz you when your food is ready. The burger was a little over-cooked but the toppings and egg roll made it...More

My boyfriend liked the Wisconsin Birger. I had the green Chile Birger and was very unsatisfied. Cold bun, dry patty and super oily. Wouldn’t come here back again. It’s just fast food but overpriced

There is a reason there's always a line at Gott's... they serve great burgers, fries, shakes, and wine/beer. Not every burger is a winner, granted, but there are some AMAZING offerings here if you pick well. We've been visiting Gott's since they were Taylor's Roadside...More

Green chili burger cooked well but just okay, nothing to write home about. Fried brussel sprouts good but nothing I couldn't make. We we're starving and limited on options but 2 burgers and 2 sides for $35 is pricy for the ordinary meal we ate.

This place is in the ferry building and there is other places to eat but this place gives great food in the American diner theme. Check it out.

Stopped in here for a quick bite to eat. Service was cheerful. I had the bacon cheeseburger which hit the spot. Not the best burger ever but it was pretty good! Wife had a salad (not my taste but she said it was “OK”). If...More

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.
