I've never paid this much for a burger I had to order at a counter before. They are good, but not that good.

Our whole family (teenage children) loved the Counter. The opportunity to build your own burger with such a wide range of choices, and the very friendly atmosphere meant we had to pay more than one visit! Our server, Jeremy, remembered us and made us feel very welcome. Service was excellent.

The food was very good, fresh but a bit pricey. The service was excellent and anxious to have the order taken for your food exactly how you want it.

If you are in the mood for a burger, this is the place! You can have a choice from the menu, or build it exactly the way you want it. One of their specialties is sweet potato fries. Beer and wine available. Informal dining, but kind of pricey.

Very high quality burger. Love the fact you can get anything you ever wanted on a burger, hate that you have to pay for every little thing. Want cheese? $1.00 want onions $1.00 etc.... Went with 3 people and with everything said and done it was $60.00 for 3 burgers, 3 fries and 3 Cokes. Ouch.

This is a different type of nurger shop. Here you build your own burger from bun to bun. You select the type of meat you want, beef or chicken and all of the ingredients you want on it. The service is excellent. They make a great Oreo shake...ummmmm good.

Had the best chicken breast in a bowl with all the best burger choices that make great salad additions too! The seasonings, cheese, veggies combos offered made it so unique and scrumptious!

If you are looking for a custom burger, this is your place, especially if you have a number of people looking for different things, like turkey, beef, chicken or veggie burger. Then you can choose your bun and all the toppings. Note the good toppings (avocado, egg, etc) are extra charge and add up quickly, so you can end up... More
