Taylor's Automatic Refresher at SF Ferry Building, Embarcadero, San Francisco, CA

Cuisine: American

Description & Atmosphere
Gott's Roadside eatery (formerly called Taylor's Automatic Refresher) in St. Helena has always been one of our favorite burger places when visiting Napa Valley Wine Country. This San Francisco location is just as good... if not better. Located at the corner of the Ferry Building Marketplace at the Embarcadero, the restaurant is larger, sleeker and more upscale than its Napa Valley counterpart.

It's a fun, casual place to come for lunch, especially on a Saturday — shop at Farmers Market all morning and then relax over a leisurely meal.

Indoor and outdoor seating is available. We prefer sitting outside, overlooking the Embarcadero — it's fun watching the world go by.

Gott's burgers are considered some of the best in San Francisco. And judging from the crowds — and the line out the door — we're not the only hamburger-lovers in town! Expect to wait in line during lunch hours on weekends, especially during peak tourist season.

Big, fresh, juicy and flavorful best describe Gott's all natural Niman Ranch beef burgers. You can really taste the difference — these aren't your normal run-of-the-mill burgers.

Milk Shakes & Malts
Milk Shakes and Malts are made with Double Rainbow Ice Cream. Shakes are the perfect consistency — not too thick so you can drink it through a straw :)
