The Experience: The Counter is a Southern California based chain of build-your-own burger restaurants. Customers can elect to garnish their burger with any number of toppings, cheeses, and sauces. In addition to the myriad of toppings to choose from, there are several options for the patty other than beef, including chicken, turkey, veggie, buffalo, and market special. On this particular visit, the special was a salmon burger.
Burger Ordered: Beef burger with blue cheese & bacon.
The Verdict: The Counter provided a solid but unspectacular burger. I will admit that I remember liking their burger more other times I’ve eaten here, so perhaps it was just an off day. The burger is a good quality, and the endless combinations one can create keeps things interesting. It’s not a top tier burger, but if you’re in the mood for a build-your-own burger, The Counter is a fine option.
The Counter is located at 10250 Santa Monica Blvd. in Los Angeles, California.
