The Palo Alto Gott's is NOT like the SF or Napa versions.
The food at this location = mini-versions served at other locations. Not worth the prices.
And, I noticed that the cooks were using their bare hands (no spatulas, no rubber gloves) to cook/handle the meat at every stage in the preparation. Management didn't think that was an issue, even in flu season.

I've been to the Napa and SF locations, they are better. Kirks a few doors from Gott's serve's a much better burger, at a much better price.

I was **so** excited that Gott's was coming to town. I drove past the big red sign exclaiming "coming this summer" day after day after day... Thinking the place would actually open in say June or July, they made us wait until technically the last few days of summer to open...
I'm not sure if it was due to my high expectations, but, given the price point of their burgers and shakes, their food is absolutely not worth the cash you'll end up spending.
For a couple of burgers, a thing of chili fries and 2 shakes, I spent $40+. When I sucked down my shake, it was far inferior to the PA Creamery which also gives you double the amount for a bit less in cost. The burgers were pricey ($10 w/ no fries), and I'd consider them more on the average side. The fries were not unlike what you'd get at In-N-Out.
The environment is great, though. And I have by no means tried everything on the menu. But, for burgers/fries/shakes, one experience is all I needed...and for those I won't be going back.
