Burgers anyway you want them. I'm picky. You write your own order, and they serve it exactly as ordered. These are healthy burgers with antibiotic and hormone free meat. Great bun, beer, and wine selection. No fast food here.

The devices was fast and friendly and the burger was great - tasty and cooked to order. Crispy fries. Convenient location off of Lincoln and easy parking.

The Counter is great place to get a "designer" burger with some interesting twists. You can also build your own burger from a wide variety of different items on the menu. Fun place to go for a fun, casual meal!

We had the pleasure of visiting the counter for both lunch and dinner over a three week period recently. The Counter offers not only burgers but also chicken and non-meat options. They also offer a "build your burger" with many delicious options. The burgers are delicious

I discovered The Counter when it opened in Dubai last year. So I wanted to compare. The setting and ambiance is the same. The food is excellent, especially the meat and that is why you are getting there in the first place. THE place to have a healthy "Burger type" of meal in town. The best for me the Build... More

Stumbled onto this place on accident on a trip out west, what a great surprise, the atmosphere is very California and trendy, service was solid, and the food was excellent. We tried the fried pickles and parm fries both were delicious. The burgers, well what can I say, they are amazing. I ordered mine medium and to my delight I... More

Our party of 8 all enjoyed our burgers and drinks. The fork and knife burger was wonderful though the tomatoes didn't have a lot of flavor. The kids cheeseburgers were "delicious," and others another person really liked the Redeye. The service was friendly and attentive. Several people enjoyed their shake including the Graceland with peanut butter, bananas and bacon.

Nice place, at the corner of a wide spread shopping mall in the entrance to Marina Del Ray. Specializes in burgers offering a wide verity. Also lets you be creative by enabling you to "build your own burger". We chose one from the menu. The burger was one of the best we've had - meat, cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion rings... More
