Best Burgers in Wine Country

Auberge Bistro

We love giving visitors to our beautiful wine country the "inside scoop" on what to see, where to go, and most importantly - what to EAT!  Perhaps the best-loved and most versatile American food is the hamburger, and you'll find plenty of variations of this classic in the Napa Valley.  

We asked our staff for their favorite places to grab a burger, and what they consider the Best Burger in Wine Country.  Try them for yourself the next time you're here and tell them Round Pond sent you!

Located right on the Napa river in the historic  1890's ship chandlery now known as the Hatt Building, downtown French brasserie Angèle is the perfect end destination to a riverside walk!  Their signature burger will taste even more epic when you enjoy it on their gorgeous riverfront patio.
