Taylors Automatic Refresher San Francisco 1

Gott’s Roadside formerly Taylor’s Automatic Refresher is a classic burger joint with 2 locations in the Wine country and one in San Francisco. They were forced to change their name in 2010. We have dined at the San Francisco Ferry Building location and the Napa location next to the Oxbow Market. This place serves burgers, sandwiches, and the like. They have a pretty big beer and wine menu for a burger place. We’ve eaten burgers here several times, which are average, and it was time for a change.
