ON the good side, they have huge menu/make your own burger combo, which tests your imagination and patience = when it's good and hot and order is correct = superlative experience.... However, I've been there and they gave my order to someone else, which meant I waited 40 minutes for my cheeseburger and sweet potato fries - another time, they... More

Me+Wife had 8 hours to spend in LA between flights. Stopped here by chance and what a lucky day! Service was friendly, you can customize your burgers with thousands of possible combinations. Mine was beef burger medium-cooked, danish blue cheese, roasted peppers, mixed greens with garlic sauce on a brioche bun. Top quality ingredients, meat cooked to perfection, fresh bun,... More

We've been regulars of the Counter practically since the first one opened. Used to love it. Used to crave it. Not so much now - it's ok, but feels like a shell of its former self. I usually get the turkey burger and generally switch up the toppings depending on how I'm feeling. It was great for years. They added... More

We have been to The Counter, but in El Segundo and Marina Del Rey. This location is pretty cool, with a lot of great photographs with a rock/music vibe to them. I have always liked their "build your burger" clipboards, but today we got the menu with the options with preselected idea for each. It is summer, so the crowds... More

It's a nice place to hangout. The menu is huge. I ordered for Parmesan fries and I had made a burger of my choice. Loved all of it. Quick service friendly staff.

I actually ate here two nights in a row!!! I love the 'build your own' option which allows me to get whatever I want...I usually rotate Turkey, beef or chicken and they are all good...gotta throw in some onion straws and a shake to go with it...and the sweet siracha sauce is killer!!! It's not always my first choice, but... More

I have driven past this place many times but thought it was just a burger place - until I was dragged here for lunch the other day - there is outdoor patio or inside dining. I came for late lunch and it was perfect - but I did hear it gets a bit mad midday-ish. It is waitress service with... More

The Counter has a lot of options for burgers. Order one of their suggestions or build your own. You can't go wrong. They also have a good selection of brews, even some that you don't see very often. Service was friendly as well. I wouldn't hesitate to go return again sometime soon.

Ate here with friends for lunch and was told this was THE place for burgers....they weren't wrong! Building from the outside doesn't do this place justice but inside is bright and clean. Menu is a little overwhelming but only down to the fact you have to make so many yummy choices. Choice of burger meats, cheese, toppings, sides etc, etc.... More

Friends took us to this Build Your Own Burger restaurant on our first day in the LA area. It was fantastic! The food was delicious and the service was great. You can choose what mean to have on your burger - beef, chicken, bison, etc. and what kind of roll you want or not. I had my burger on a... More
