This is our second trip to The Counter. The system takes just a bit of coaching but it works. The use of the "forms" for ordering is second nature after the first visit.The food is fresh and well prepared. Staff is nice...busy but helpful. Portions are big! All in all, we shall return for yet another visit.

Eating a burger in Us is very easy, probably you can find a choice every mile. The counter is positioned on hi end. You can take a seat and fully customize your burger, down side the price is comparable with normal restaurants.

This is only my second visit to The Counter, but I have to say their food is always delicious. This location was nice & quiet (Sunday night). Service was great, food was delicious, and great company. I got their custom sandwich, but love that you can custom make/ "create" your own burger. They do advertise the Create (servers shirts promote... More

The make-your-own concept taken to another level. Beef and chicken options as well as buns or salads. Big portions.

This place has really good sandwiches. The chicken, mushrooms and onions sandwich was really tasty. The burgers were also really nice. The only thing I would say is that you have to order the fries/salad separately as they don't come with the sandwich/burger. So maybe a bit more expensive than other places. You can do your own burger which is... More

You can create your own burger from picking from different meats to many different toppings and then a large assortment of sauces. They are a good burger but for the price ($20+) I would have rather went somewhere else.

I had a gift card to the Counter and decided to try it out. I was very disappointed. Yes, you can basically create your own signature burger with the many ingredients they have to offer, but it wasn't worth the time or money. From now on, I'll prepare my gourmet burgers at home. There are too many other burger spots... More

The Counter has been such a welcome addition to the Miracle Mile area, located right next to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) and the La Brea Tar Pits as well as a beautiful park. Great burgers served anyway you like them-- you customize your burger using a little pencil and an order form, which is actually lots... More

Good burger although it needed a little more sauce (which I added). Salad could have been washed better (a little gritty) but was very tasty. Burger patty was tasty and cooked correctly.

I returned for a business lunch after not having visited in few months. I was pleasantly surprised by minor changes to the menu. While the pretzel bun was missing, there are many new choices taking its place. Standard toppings are now unlimited rather than being constrained to a specified number. It was fun assembling the burger precisely the way that... More
