The Counter has great service and great food. Being able to order any type of burger anyway you like is awesome. The burgers, onion strings and fries aer freshly cooked and taste amazing. We will come again.

Popular among shoppers and office workers at the upmarket shopping area of Santana Row in San Jose, the restaurant serves up a wide variety of burgers. It encourages you to 'build your own' burgers, giving you a step by step guide in building one. I noticed that it charges you extra for common toppings like bacon and avocado. The burger was good, thick and juicy. However, the sides we ordered - nacho fries and pickle fries were bad. The former was soggy and the latter too salty and greasy. Good for burgers but prepared to pay about USD12.00 and avoid the sides.

Excellent burger, fries and rings. I had the turkey burger and the others in my family had the beef burgers. Turkey burger was excellent. Lots of options / choices in building your burger. Family of 4 cost about $75 with tip. Had to wait for a table at 2pm on a Saturday afternoon, but they have a text message based wait list

The Counter seeved some of the best burgers I've ever had! You get to customize your burger and the variety is great. The fries are amazing. Oh and before I forget... the BEER is AWESOME!!!!! The staff is friendly. Depending on the time and day you go, you may have to waith longer than you'd like. We've waited 45 min last time (Friday dinner time). Plann accordingly...

Wow, you can eat paleo and dial in a healthy chicken, beef, turkey and salad (they do everything with a no bun option) at the same time. Great people watching at Santana Row, great service, and you can even do drinks. Kid friendly and very convenient if you are shopping or meeting friends for business lunch or just connecting. It's a bit pricey but you definitely get great food for the money. A do not miss if in Santana Row area and you're hungry.
