Gott’s Roadside: Burgers and Milkshakes in Palo Alto

Diana Chan January 23, 2019 burger, Palo Alto

Gott’s Roadside is a popular spot for burgers, fries, and drinks. Their Californian-inspired dishes utilize locally sourced ingredients and elevates the traditional American Roadside experience. When we were visiting the area, we decided to make a stop here since a lot of our family members never had Gott’s before, so we had to go for a quick bite.


There are lots of seats inside and a few spots outside as well. Since it was the Summer, it was nice just sitting outside enjoying the weather.


Waiting for your order

Once you input and pay for your order, you get this electronic device to let you know when your order is ready. It will flash and buzz when it’s your turn. A great idea so you can find a seat and not just be waiting around.

Black and White Milk Shake

Their milk shakes are hand spun with organic ice cream and milk. We went with the black and white which is vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. A classic and looks good too.

California Burger

A classic! It has fried egg, swiss cheese, Zoe’s bacon, arugula, balsamic onions and mayo on a toasted egg bun. How can you say no to a burger with a delicious egg. It was cooked medium well, so it is a little pink inside and it’s delicious.

Western Bacon Blue Ring

This has beer-battered onion ring, Point Reyes crumbled blue cheese, bacon, pickles, red onion & BBQ sauce on a toasted egg bun. A big burger with good textures and complimentary flavours. The blue cheese was nice and pungent. It went well with the BBQ sauce.

Ahi Burger

This burger uses sushi grade Ahi tuna seared rare with ginger wasabi mayo, Asian slaw & cilantro on a toasted egg bun. A lighter version of the other burgers on the menu but it is a nice change. The ahi was beautifully cooked too.

Baja Fish Tacos

There are 2 tacos in each order. It has fresh Mahi Mahi, beer-battered & fried crisp, served in soft, organic corn tortillas with Mexican slaw, cilantro, salsa verde, lime & spicy mayo.

It was ok, but the burgers are where it’s at here.

Garlic Fries

To compliment the burgers, we got garlic fries, which are tossed in garlic butter and parsley. A good combination to make it a fitting meal.

Final Thoughts

Overall, if you’re craving a solid burger, Gott’s Roadside has got your back. It’s not the best burger in Northern California, but it’s solid.
