Neat idea, you can make your own burger here. They hand you a checklist or you can pick something off the menu. Expensive, $20 got me a burger and a coke, no side dish. The service was fast and friendly. Right across the road from...More

Sat at the counter and ordered a 'build your own burger.' The beer selection is impressive. The fries are excellent and the burger is the star. Highly recommended!

This place is great. It is located right next to the la Brea tar pits. Service was quick and burgers were large. We were all happy with our meals

Nice location has indoor and outdoor sitting. You can pick anything offered to build your own burger like bread, meat, topping, etc. pretty good food. Slow though if you are in a rush. A Berger cost $18-20

Sat outside - Sun out A 'make your own burger bar' - great quality and choice. And with starters $20 per person. Awesome value. Oh and we had Gluten Free (just to try it out) surprisingly quite tasty.

Here's the thing: The Counter makes good food, but it comes at a price. To me, it costs more than I'm willing to pay for a burger, even if it is a bit gourmet. Also, you have to order fries if you want fries. They...More
