Busy upscale shopping center, is fun to visit after a fun lunch or supper. Helpful waitstaff aid in selecting any type of burger, beef, bison, veggie. Choose of bun, or atop a salad. Sweet potato fries are great. Write up your order from the menu. Sauces and condiments abound. It is a bit noisy and... read more

Its a great location. You can bike there since the 18 mile bike path is across the street. You can drive there. You can stop on the way to the airport. The staff is very friendly and place looks great.

This place is amazing! The burgers are fantastic, full of flavour and juicy. But it's the ability to build your own that sets this place apart. Choose from 3 different size pates or 7 different other types of pate, 10+ different cheeses, 20+ different sauces, 40+ different toppings, 10 different buns and then there's the sides!! This is a must... More

The Counter offers a wonderful variety of burgers, salads and kids menus. You can get a burger on a bun or in a bowl with salad goodies under the food. One can special order their own choice of burger also. I love this place. The service is good, you can have a conversation without competing with loud music.

If you like burgers, this is the best for a custom made meal. GOOD: Almost anything you can think of they will put on your sandwich. Not just cow but bison, fish, turkey. BAD: Service is slow. Parking is hard at peak times. COLD, I was her once in the summer and my wife wanted to leave because the A/C... More

The Counter has by far the best system for ordering, a piece of paper and a pencil, circle what you'd like. I love that the orders are never wrong! The selection here, from buns, protein, toppings, sauces...... is insane. It is easy to get carried away, but whatever I've ordered here, has been fantastic. Strongly suggest the onion strings.

Went to the Marina Del Rey location and this is basically a burger shop where you can pick from twelve or so ingredients to customize your burger. They also have chicken, salmon, tuna and vegi options. The meat patties really weren't special in their own right so I couldn't see what made this place more special than any other restaurant....

I discovered this joint a few years ago and have been a fan ever since. For vegetarians, most burger options include either rubbery boca patties or black bean patties. This place has the best veggie patty in the US. Its well cooked, has carrots, corn, potatoes, etc. The choice of toppings and customization is really great with the Herb Cheese... More
