Gott’s Roadside – St. Helena, CA
Formerly known as Taylor’s Refresher, Gott’s is THE burger spot in town! There are 3 locations in the greater Bay Area – The Ferry Building in San Francisco, The Oxbow Market in Napa and here off of highway 29 in St. Helena. Most burger joints just offer the expected – hamburger, cheeseburger, fries, shakes, etc. Not the case here. There’s everything from your traditional bacon cheeseburger to shrimp tacos and chinese chicken salad.
On a recent visit with my husband and some friends, we all chose something different. I went for the Spicy Chicken Sandwich which was very satisfying however I could have used a little more kick! My husband went classic and got the Bacon Cheeseburger which was perfect, juicy and everything you would want in a cheeseburger. I definitely had to steal a bite:) Along with fries and onion rings (the best I’ve had!), we splurged and also got the special zucchini fries. How can you say no to something that has “while they last” in parenthesis next to them? I’ve been on a zucchini kick so I really liked them however when looking back at my pictures I realized what was missing…the home made ranch sauce they said came with them. Darn! Next time.

Bacon Cheeseburger – American cheese, bacon, lettuce, tomatoes, pickles & secret sauce served on a toasted egg bun
Spicy Chicken – grilled, chili spice-marinated chicken breast, sliced avocado, Mexican slaw, cilantro sour cream & charred jalapeño mayo on a toasted sourdough roll
C Casa – Napa, CA
For those of you who have been to the Oxbow Market in Napa you already know how incredible it is! Although I had been there once before, I hadn’t actually eaten at any of the stalls. On a recent trip down I needed a quick bite and decided on C Casa. The menu made it hard for me to narrow down my choices…everything sounded so fresh and yummy. I settled on the C Chop Salad and one salmon taco which was a special that day. YUM! I chose well:) And I would definitely order them again.
There’s a charming outdoor space where you pick your order up right at the window otherwise there’s ample space inside.
C Chop Salad – with queso fresco, red bell peppers, pumpkin seeds & creamy cilantro lime dressing
Grilled Salmon Taco – with grilled corn relish, poblanos, green onions, romaine, garlic aioli, micro greens and avocado crema
