We waited 35 minutes at The Counter for food on a Sunday afternoon at 1:00 pm and then walked out. Too too long! It's a burger joint. Slowest experience in The Woodlands. Never again.

It looks like a 50's diner, only it has different burgers: not only beef but bison, turkey, chicken and fish. You can design your own fancy burger or choose from their specialties; sides include yummy grilled veggies along with deep-fried objects (try the parmesan fries)....More
