One of the tastiest burgers you can find

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... read 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

Not only is it very cool to build your own burger - selecting the meat, type of cheese, sauce and toppings but their burgers actually have a wonderful flavor, taste great and are fat and juicy. They use angus beef, hormone and antibiotic- free. I wish we had a restaurant like this! Not to be missed.

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 crowded at lunchtime but if... 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.
