Gott's is your standard roadside diner, except your burgers can be accompanied by Sauvignon Blanc and a blueberry milkshake. Ahi tuna might appear in that bun. Fries and onion rings are highly recommended, as are the fish tacos. Plenty of outdoor seating.

American Diner Meets California Sophistication
It was a rainy, gloomy summer day, and we had just spent the morning escaping the drizzle inside the Ferry Building. With my two small kids starting to get hungry for lunch, I hoped Gott's Roadside would prove a good option. After all, the restaurant's three locations (one here and two in Napa Valley) are known for tasty diner-style food, something kids usually go for.
Gott's was a surprise for all of us. The menu is a mix of great takes on classic diner food, like a perfect open-faced tuna melt on sourdough rounds made with fresh ahi tuna, and California favorites, like fish tacos (excellent!). We all loved the sweet potato fries. The ingredients are fresh and local, and the meat comes from regional farms that use all vegetarian feed and don't use hormones or antibiotics. As if this yummy food wasn't enough, Gott's serves nice local wines, California beers, and more diner staples like shakes and ice cream. They also serve breakfast.
Gott's Roadside is a family-friendly place with plenty of delicious options to keep us traveling parents happy.
The original Gott's Roadside may be in Napa, but the Ferry Building version in San Francisco is just as good! There are long lines every day to get to their burgers, fries and shakes, but they move fast and the food is worth it! During sunny days the outdoor terrace is great for people watching along the Embarcadero. There is a burger for everyone - meat, ahi or veggie, but they also do fantastic ahi poke tacos! For first times - go for a classic burger or cheeseburger and enjoy!
