Custom Built Burger Restaurant

Custom Toppings are Great for Chicken Too

  • Jan 10, 2009

A lot has been written about the ability to customize your burger at The Counter. For some reason, however, I have received more satisfaction applying customization to their Chicken sandwich. To start, the Chicken is a delicious piece of white meat that has been well cooked each time (too often chicken breasts are overcooked and dried out as a result). Through careful experimentation I am getting close to the optimum combination (for my taste). Today I tried the Honey Wheat Bun with the Soy Glaze and my toppings were Scallions, Hard Boiled Eggs (which were sliced thin so did not bunch up in the sandwich) and the Corn and Black Bean Salsa. A delicious combination, but not quite perfect. I think a bit of heat would improve the combination and next time, I will consider adding Jalapenos. We also had the Sweet Potato Fries today which were awesome...Flavorful and not greasy.

The Counter opened in our neighborhood (El Segundo) and I have found it a welcome addition. For those looking for a delicious yet healthy meal, a burger joint may seem to be an odd choice, however the Counter provides many options for this crowd. I have yet to try the veggie burger, but have heard good things.

This review is just focusing on the chili at the Counter.      I've tried both the regular chili and the turkey chili.    Regular Chili: This is very meaty which normally you would think is a good thing.  Really the only thing in it besides meat is some stewed tomatoes.  I really prefer more to my chili like... hmmmm.... i don't know... beans?!?!  or something.  This chili is actually really good on (and probably designed for) french …

I had a coupon for a "buy one, get one" burger dealio so I called my friend for lunch. She drove to my place and we walked up to Sunset and over to The Counter to have a burger. Because we walked, I can neither complain or rejoice about the parking situation. First impressions are important and the girl that sat us was friendly. My only problem with her was that she asked how I was and as I was preparing to give my standard "I'm outstanding" response, she was …

  I can't say that The Counter serves the best hamburgers I've ever eaten, but they are damn good.  The first thing I look for (or taste for) when biting into a burger, is the juiciness factor.   I want the juices to squirt into my mouth and wake up my taste buds.  Those buds were dancing with the first bite of The Counter burger.  Next, for me, is flavor.  Some hamburgers have a steamed taste.  That's a taste that is difficult to describe, but you know …

Ok someone seriously needs to explain to me what I am missing. Since when is paying almost $10 for a burger a good thing? I tried the counter last night for the first time because I had heard it was "the burger joint" to try. I cracked up when I looked at the clipboard because I couldn't believe how pretty much anything worth adding to a burger was $1.00 more than the already $7.95 you were paying for a small burger. Before I move on, let me define the counter's idea of small....its really small …
