Good food, but why not serve bisson burgers? Love them. Overall good place, but just too pricy for what you get.

This place is over priced and not that big a deal. I went in for a burger (they weren't that busy) but a problem developed with my order.

First, a guy who wasn't my waiter brought me a side of sweet potato fries which I didn't order but

No way this is worth the money you spend, unless you order the 1/2 pound or more and you will pay big form it. If your looking for a great burger and maybe a fresh Albacore sandwich try "The Habit". No beer or wine though.

Answer: yes. Since moving to Santa Monica, I have been searching for a good, solid, standby burger joint, and The Counter is that place. I was introduced to The Counter by a friend, where I was very impressed with the cleanliness of the establishment and the helpfulness of the wait staff. Once it came time to order, I was so impressed by the vast selection of items that I could put on my burger (Pineapples? Pepperoncinis? Yes please.) The food was delicious once it arrived, as were the fries and milkshake. My only word of advice is expect a 5-10 minute wait before being seated, as The Counter is a very popular (and deservedly so) place to get a meal on any given night. How anyone could not like this place is beyond me.

WOW!!! After hearing about this place from numerous friends and reading some reviews I had to try it out for myself. We had a bit of a wait but it gave us time to create our burgers from the vast choices that are available and have glass of wine (pretty impressive wine list for a burger joint). The server was very nice and answered all our questions which we had quit a few, she also suggested we start with a 3x3 which is not on the menu but is a portion sweet fries, French fries and onion strings. Be careful not to fill up on the starter as they are great but I almost didn't safe room for my burger, which would have been a big mistake because it was awesome. I ordered it med-rare and it came out perfectly cooked, juicy and full of flavor. My husband had the veggie burger which I was surprised was very tasty as well. Which split the Shake of the Month which was a Birthday Cake shake and it was decadent, it truly tasted just like a white cake.

We are adding The Counter to our list of regular most eat at restaurants!!

I went to The Counter last night excited and ready to build my own burger. After waiting 20 minutes longer that what I was told the wait would be we finally sat down. We ordered immediately. As we waited for our burger creations we realized that everyone was being served BUT US!!! Every time I asked the waitress where our food was she came up with a LAME excuse and continued to blame the kitchen staff. Parties who had sat down 20 minutes after us had their food while we still were waiting. When I asked the waitress why our food had not arrived after 40+ MINUTES of waiting she blamed us for ordering our burgers well, saying that "well burgers" take longer. Well I don't appreciate being blamed for ordering food the way I WANT IT! So after waiting 40 minutes for a BURGER we decided to leave. Before leaving I spoke with the manager about the CRAPTASTICAL service. Somehow, miraculously, our burgers were done NOW that we were ready to leave. At that point I did NOT care. However, she gave us our burgers to go (since I refused to spend another SECOND in The Counter). We ate them at home and they were just alright. We should have stuck with our original plan and gone to Houston's. I WILL NEVER EVER EVER IN MY LIFE GO TO THE COUNTER AGAIN OR LET ANY OF MY FAMILY OR FRIENDS GO THERE AS WELL!!! I HATE THE COUNTER FOR RUINING MY SATURDAY NIGHT!!!

If the waitress had confessed that she screwed up our order and did not give it to the kitchen staff in a timely manner I may not LOATHE The Counter the way I do. BUT she didn't and proceeded to blame us and large parties who were seated AFTER US for the long wait. Beware of the waitstaff at The Counter!!! If your waitress has red hair and the first name of a UC (Univ of CA) near Oakland BEWARE!!!!

My girlfriend and I went to The Counter and it was hopping. Wall to wall people and a great buzz in the air. You couldn't help but wonder what this place is doing to make Oprah recommend it. We were sat reasonably quick considering the amount of customers waiting for a table. We decided to order the 50/50 onion strings and sweet potatoe fries, and WOW what a tantilizing mouth watering experience. The burgers came out and I was amazed that the medium is actually a true medium with a deep pink. There was a customer who sent hers back saying she wanted just a thread of pink. I couldn't help but say something to her because mine I felt was medium. She wanted medium well, anyways, we all enjoyed the food and the pumpkin shake for dessert was to die for. If you're on a diet try the veggie burger, which was absolutely amazing and vegan.

i had a hard time deciding what to get because everything on the menu looked so good. i really liked the "make your own burger" feature. the burgers are tasty and both the regular fries and sweet potato fries are great. i had the churro

Pros: good food, good service, inexpensive

Cons: long wait, crowded, noisy

.

Well, these burgers are really only as creative as you are, but they certainly give you all the tools you need to build a really good burger. Shakes are good, but I'd save my arteries by staying away from their krispy cream desert 'burger'; way too rich. Realy friendly staff, too.

PROS: They do one thing, and they do it right.
CONS: Can get crowded, not a place for chilling out for a long period of time.
