Self-designed burgers as well as standard ones
Endless combinations possible. Also possible to buy a burger pre-configured by the restaurant. Good burgers as well as sides and sauces. We were 8
people and had quite a long wait for our food. more »

Asian Veggie Burger is a must
Lovely place for lunch at Santana Row. My friend ordered a bison burger and I ordered an Asian Burger on a bed of salad and sweet potatoes fries, which were excelle
nt. Enjoyed sitting outside and watching people and listening to music. Can't be better than that! more »

Thousands of burger choices
This place was great and not like so many other burger places. They give you a menu of all the breads, buns, cheeses, meats, toppings and sauces that they have and yo
u get to make any combo you want. You could eat here everyday for the rest of your life and never have the same thing twice.
I enjoyed it and look forward to going back.

Great burgers, but WAy too expensive. You can choose your own ingredients, which is nice but your wallet won't believe you just spent $25 for a burger. more »

Food was good. Sides came out 10 minutes before sandwiches which was annoying and I’m not used to paying for refills for regular ice tea. My fault for not asking but still... more »

A recent visit was much improved
I had written a rather unfavorable review following a lunch here a few months ago, and I received a very nice response from the manager stating that he would loo
k into what may have been the issue. A couple of weeks ago, I returned to The Counter with several friends, and I am pleased to stay that everything was great ... fast service, order was correct, good food, etc., etc. Bravo on the improvement!! more »

Great burger and awesome fries!
We haven't tried this chain before so after a long day of acting like a tourist we felt like this was a quick easy decision. Their order system is cool. They
give you a clipboard with a menu of choices. Pick your bun, pick your size of beef burger, pick your extras and sauce. It's an expensive burger but was delicious. The waiter was helpful with suggestions. He decided that the half sweet potato fries and half garlic fries was a good place to start and he was correct. Jist do it and make your stomach happy. Plan to spend around $15 a piece for this experience. more »

Awesome food. According to my Dad, the best burger ever! They just need to expand to Missouri, so I can have them more than every couple of years when I'm at Stanford Heath Care for follow up on my Moya Moya Disease. more »

We stopped here on a warm summer Friday evening when all the other nearby places were jammed with families, graduations, etc. We've been here before, but tonight seemed special. This is not your ordinary burger joint: stylish, many good options, fresh and tasty ingredients, and excellent service. Our server, Emina, was warm, attentive, sensitive to our requests. Overall, a good experience and well worth repeating! more »
