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 »

The counter is a hamburger restaurant where you get to build your own burger! They have every topping, sauce, and condiment you can think of. The fries are also delicious, I suggest the sweet potato fries. The only problem is that it can get a little price if you decide to add on a bunch of items to your burger. more »

It's kind of like the Gogobot of burgers "...based on your likes and interests." Love the option to build a burger to suit my personal taste, including a really tasty veggie option. They cater large parties and know how to put a nice spread together, perfect for an office luncheon and everyone leaves happy. more »
