If you’ve spent any time in St. Helena, you’ve noticed the line outside Gott’s, and yes, we’re going to tell you to stand in it (or at the very least order ahead online). It’s gourmet fast food at its finest with a picnic table-style patio, where kids and the occasional wine-fueled grownup run wild. There is no wrong order here, but we come for the burgers (try the California and Western), the fish tacos (poke and mahi), and specialties like the Mexican street corn and chicken schnitzel sandwich. If you go for the sweet potato fries (which you should), make sure to snag an extra side of the housemade ranch, and don’t leave without one of the thick milk shakes. If you miss this location, there’s another at the Oxbow in downtown Napa.
