the counter

the counter is a chain of build-your-own burger restaurants here in the los angeles area.  pasadena's location is one of the newest, and it is consistently busy with people waiting to go in.  they do some cool things like serving fried onion and dill pickles, and having a decent selection of craft beer to put with your burger.

i appreciate the ability to choose exactly what you want on your burger, but it took me a long time to sort through the massive list of toppings.  i found myself wondering if i had made the right choice, even after my burger arrived.  still, it is worth checking out if you haven't been.

We have the counter burger in Orange County too! I love it, but you're right--overwhelming!
Their grilled cheese is fantastic too.
