The Counter is a chain restaurant, but don't let that fool you. Customizable food is their specialty - in that you build it, they make it.

Located in 10 states as well as in another country (Ireland), they're famous for what they do. Established in 2003, per their website, the concept is simple. "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." The site has actually listed that there are over 312,120 different burger combinations. So every time you go, you could try something new, and never get bored.

I love this restaurant, and more yet, I love eating the food and drink while sitting outside on their patio enjoying the temperate weather of Walnut Creek, seeing people walk hand in hand, or even walking their dogs. The location is prime, the food fantastic, the service exceptionally good, and the atmosphere, worth every penny.

Take a moment, go check out this place. And, as if all that wasn't enough, you can even join their list to get updates on events, sales, and anything else new with the "Counter Culture".

For your reference, I've included some information regarding Walnut Creek's location, but look on the site to find a location near you. They're growing, and coming to a town near you soon!
