The Counter

 2901 Ocean Park Blvd
Santa Monica, CA

Lots of hype, but not disappointing

The Counter is ALWAYS packed, no matter what time or day of the week. It is just that famous. Not that it is all talk. The burgers are huge and filling, I always have to take half home. They are usually cooked properly, juicy and flavorful. The sheer number of toppings and sauces is overwhelming and thrilling, especially to a sauce fanatic like me. I think the customization is what gives this place its celebrity status, and while novel, it is sometimes hampering. One can have too much choice. But, I do love the plethora of sauces, and their sweet potato fries are delicious. Pass on the normal fries. Turkey burger was also delicious, slightly less meaty and moist than the beef, though that is to be expected, overall very good for turkey. Milkshakes are thick, heavy, creamy, and huge. Not a bad place if you have lots of time to wait around for a table, but maybe a little pricey for what you get. Guess you have to pay extra for fame.
