Delicious for everyone! – This place rocks. You can end up spending $15 on a burger without trying, but who even cares! It's delicious!
Build your own burger with an insane amount of toppings to choose from. Options for everyone, even me! I can be picky and randomly strange when it comes to my taste buds. The wait staff is totally nice and laid back.
Don't forget the Sweet Potato Fries!!! Nom nom nom.Love this place.
A Burger for Everyone – Have it your way! No, seriously! Make a burger exactly how you want it at this Santa Monica burger spot. Not only do you have your choice of meat, but you also can choose from 1/3 lb up to 1lb. This is a great place for couples and groups because you can be as healthy or as bad as you want. Picky eaters inquire within.
The Counter = Good Grub! – The Counter takes the phrase "Have it your way" and unloads on it with a furry of flavor. Take your miniature golf pencil and start checking off the toppings to pile onto your custom built burger. With good stuff like horseradish mayo, grilled pineapple rings, applewood smoked bacon, aged cheddar, and roasted chilies, you really can't go wrong. Keep on checking them off and the higher your burger will get... and hey, sometimes it's a good thing to have a burger piled taller than wide. Or stop in on a Thursday where you can grub on their super delicious mini slider burger and beer pairings. But remember, these aren't your everyday sliders. We're talking smoked Gouda, crispy onion strings, Canadian bacon, guacamole ... need we say more? And when you match them up with a range of tasters from a refreshing Hefeweizen to a dark, rich Porter, it's grub greatness. But don't forget about the first course on this tour through deliciousness. Make sure to begin your journey with a fifty-fifty ... a tasty tray filled with your choice of half sweet potato fries, shoestring potatoes, or shredded onion rings. Better yet, take it to the next level and go for the fried pickle chips. While you're chowing down, don't forget to soak up the atmosphere with painted skateboards hung from the wall, hip-hop and rock tunes streaming as if a DJ was in the corner, and a waitress or two in rainbow suspenders. It's kind of like your surfer / skateboard buddy from high school took over a diner, started flipping some seriously juicy burgers, and added a serious mix of beers on tap. So grab a burger, add on a fifty-fifty, fill up your pint with a pale ale, and ride off into the center of the Good Grub universe. See more at www.thegoodgrub.weebly. com
"THE RODFATHER" at Joni's Coffee Roaster a Must! – I have been a Counter fan for years however, I have recently discovered LA's NEW BEST BURGER at Joni's Coffee Roaster Cafe in Marina del Rey. It's called "THE RODFATHER BURGER"....A Whipped Horseradish burger on a warmed homemade pretzel bun. This is a must and the word is spreading fast.....
Long wait but worth it! – Be prepared to wait a while to get a table if you want to eat in. This place is so popular that it is always full even on off hours but its full for a reason. The burgers are great and I am not even a burger kind of gal. I got the veggie burger so packed with veggies you can see them and I can't not get the sweet potato fries there either!
Never fails to produce a great burger! – Have never failed to get a great burger at this place. The monthly specials are always creative and incredibly good! Try the different fries, they are fantastic!
Raw Meat, then Burnt Burger - Over priced and poor service – We went on a Sat eve. We were starved after working all day. We ordered fries to placate our hunger and they came fast and were very good. I filled out the sheet for my burger, my way. It TOOK FOREVER. It was not what I had ordered - no roasted peppers but worst of all it was RAW. Barely brown on the outside and dripping red uncooked on the inside. I cut the burger in half, showed the waitress and they took it back.
OH MY GOD. They brought back the exact same cut in half burger and had cooked it to death - it was BLACKEND on the outside.
The manager was nice and did not charge us for it - gee thx now how about my growling stomach and all the time I wasted sitting here waiting for decent food.
The service staff was soso. I would not go back and I would not recommend this VERY OVER PRICED BURGER joint with metal chairs.
Churro Milkshake...yep you heard me! – Of course in LA you'll find a posh diner. The burgers here can't go wrong because you can mix and match whatever you like. They have the burger in a bowl which is how your burger ends up looking. The burgers are so large you end up needing to eat it with a fork. You have to try the milkshakes of the month. Sure they have the classics, but once in a while they'll come up with these outstanding tasting milkshakes ...ie the Churro Milkshake. Heart-Attack waiting to happen...well you only live once. The service was peppy and had one too many redbulls but they were quick and attentive. There can be quite a long wait so not good for groups greater than 6. A must try and decent price.
Awesome Burgers – I love this place!! I dig the idea of making your own burger.I love their sweet potato fries. I love their burgers--I've had their turkey burgers, veggie and possibly even their (gasp) meat. (Sometimes you just get a craving.) Service has been pretty good from what I remember...
Yes they serve a great burger(and sweet potato fries)! – Here its done right. Great meat(pick your size: 1/3 or 1/2 or 1 lb), type of bun, type of cheese, + 3 toppings included. I always get sweet potato fries, a mountain of an order good for two or even three people. Always a wait though, counter service is faster than tables. Go!
