The best gourmet burger made your way!

We visit the counter every other week. There are plenty of preset menu choices but our favorite is to custom order your burger. Choose chicken, beef, turkey, tuna or bison and have it on a delicious bun of your choice OR in a salad form. Many veggies to add and toppings. Pair this with a 50/50 of... read more

We went for lunch and were a few of the first customers on a week day. We were met with a smile and chose an inside booth, they also have outside seating. We split some fries and onion rings and each had a burger. You can create your own burger or order off the menu. There are plenty of options... More

My wife and I were here for the first time last week and pleasantly surprised. Very good service from the time you walk in; staff was friendly and extremely helpful in helping you in knowing what was available, what items went with what, etc. Hamburgers were very good and yummy, good-sized. The only minor complaint was that the Parmesan fries... More

Great burgers! I love how you can customize the burgers here. All in all, as a big Burger fan, I would def be back here over and over again! They have a great outdoor seating area as well. Their sweet potato fries were really good.

We were staying at a hotel across the parking lot from the Counter and thought we would try this restaurant for a late dinner. We ordered turkey burgers which were seasoned nicely. Novel idea having the customer fill in what type of meat you want, type of bun, condiments, etc. Lots and lots of choices, some ordinary and some 'not... More

I visited The Counter twice on a business trip and appreciate the custom order menu style. Customers can build virtually any kind of burger they want. Great selection of ingredients, sides, and desserts. I tried a black and white milkshake that wasn't so great. The bison burger is very good.

This is the best place for a hamburger or bison burger. You can mix and match whatever toppings you want. You can also get a small or large sweet potato fry which is amazing. As other mentioned stop by for happy hour for sure! Also, check out the menu online and print your order it will save you trying to... More

Came here mid afternoon after driving 5 hours. $2 cheeseburger sliders and $2 beers really make the end of a long drive easier. Happy hour starts at 3. This location is the same as the Residence Inn. Always enjoy their food.
