Anti-Established in 2003, The Counter® is the 21st century’s bold answer to the classic burger joint. Ushering in a fresh era of industrial decor, today’s music, cold beer, unique wines, cocktails, and burger options that are only limited by your imagination.
Burgers made to order with too many options for condiments. Ok wine selection. Daily specials.
The fries and selection was great
Went there 3 times last month and will keep going back. Bison with a Bite burger is the best, and you have to try the nuttela pretzel milkshake!
Beef is amazingly tasty, and you can customize your burger any way you like.
This place is amazing! Great options for creating your own burgers, good beer selection, and very friendly and helpful staff. This is now one of my new favorite burger spots in Houston.
Birthday cake milkshake
Super fancy burgers! They have turkey, bison, veggie and more. You can be gluten,dairy, corn and soy free here! They are very accommodating for food allergies. Their gluten free buns are very good!
Delicious but incredibly slow service (yes, on a Saturday night, but they weren't that busy.)
Awesome and tasty burgers in which you can customize to your own liking. Plus the servers are friendly!
Asian veggie salad is the bomb!! Healthy and yummy!
Best Turkey Burger ever!!
You can get your burger "in a bowl", and choose your own toppings and extras. They also have gluten-free burgers. Not a lot of salads or non-burger choices though.
Try the Burger - Delicious custom burgers.
The Counter burger is a great burger to try on a first visit. The old fashion was also delicious!
Free burger on fathers day! Say bfd...
ask for Justin. He's gives great service and is very social as well.
Gluten Free bun, veggie burger and more.
The burgers are good, but a little on the pricey side for lunch when places like Christians and Lankford are close.
So many choices. So good.
Veggie Burger is yummy. So is the spicy sour cream sauce!

Awesome food but really wish the service was faster...
Like the burgers and options just fine - however... lemme warn you, don't come here on your lunch hour. This place is too laid back for a quick bite.

Perfect for people with a sensitive pallet like my mommas!

Try the Caramel And Chocolate Brownie - @thecounterHOU this was so good that we wanted 2 slap the shit out of somebody:-). Yes we r violent when we r happy.
There a selection of a dozen cheeses (gruyere! brie! horseradish cheddar!) plus 30 extras like a fried egg, guacamole, applewood smoked bacon and pineapple, and another 20 sauces.
Fun menu system. Purely customizable options and delicious ingredients!

Built Your Burger options so good that you'll overlook the sub-par service.
Parmesan fries!! Drool.
Good burgers, beer, and one cute hostess.
Parmesan fries, period.
Veggie burger is delicious especially with the goat cheese spread and multigrain bun. Parm fries were easily the best french fries I've ever tasted in my life.
Don't even need to try to create your own burger...the taco turkey burger is perfect!
Yum! Pesto, feta, bacon delicious
This place is super yummy. For what is offered it is a great deal. I like it!
Burgers are good. Love the music, but it should be illegal to charge extra for fries with a burger.
We liked it a lot. Chuck says best burger he's ever had that he didn't make. Huge portions. A splurge but worth it.
Burgers in a bowl rock. Perfect for a low carb diet.
Rocking burgers, good prices. Great new find!
Cool atmosphere, good custom burgers, friendly staff. Try the sweet potato fries!
Overpriced. Not that great. You have to pay $.50 for mayo. The fries and onion strings were good. Won't be going back.
Also - fries offered in 50/50 so you and a friend can try two kinds and desserts looked awesome and were only $5 bucks! Great value and very nice patio area!!
Great burger - huge selections! If you don't feel like being creative they have burgers on the menu. Staff was very friendly and helpful! If you aren't sure, they will help!
