Much like other Counter locations, the burgers and shakes are reliably good quality compared to other places that serve artisan buns, grass-fed beef and Belgian fries. One of the few places I would say is better is Pono Burger.

I am starting this review as I am waiting for our order. The place is packed, the number of waiters is very small. The chicken burger on vegetables was very good.

We did the "build your own burger" thing, and found all the components to be fresh, carefully prepared, and tasty. The fried onion straws were good, and their beer selection is decent. A nice choice for we Midwesterners who don't have access to this particular...More

This place just gets it. You want cheese? They have like 10 to choose from. Don't like beef? Get chicken, bison, crab or veggie patty. Different buns to choose from too. Brioche is excellent. Plus tons of toppings and sauces customize your own master piece....More

Awesome diy burgers. Big portions. Fries are delicious. Fried onions are a must add. And the service was quick and friendly. Would do again

Huge burgers, even veggie! I love how you choose everything by checking boxes, because it would be impossible to make your special burger trying to remember all their choices. Breads, condiments, toppings, sauces everything you could possibly want :)
