A great burger place. I really like the Build your own Burger, they have literally every topping you can think of. Also the shoestring fries are amazing. And they have lots of fun shakes and cocktails. Well worth a visit.

Burgers, shakes, and fries are all tasty but I highly recommend getting the order to go - staff can be extremely slow. I found the turkey burger to be tasty and not dry which is no small feat. Parking in the garage is free but must be validated at night on the weekends.

Don't know what happened to this place. Ordered a 1/3 lb burger. It was half the size of the bun. The quality has gone way down. No wonder no one is in here. This place sucks now!

Although the food is good and well made, and the decor and layout a nice modern style, for what you get it is over priced. The service is horribly disorganized, and the uniforms non noticeable, that is, for those actually wearing uniforms. Most workers look like customers. Once they figure out how to attend to you however, they do display basic customer service skills. It ends the weakness here is structure. On that note, service can also be slow, even when there are only, let me count, 12 customers, 3 parties of two and a party of six (not including myself this time since I am placing a to go order as of this writing). In all, food is good, style and atmosphere is good, but the price does not reflect the ingredients, nor most menu items unique enough, aside from the burger in bowls, to really justify the prices (mainly the added toppings). If you want an organic burger, there's Elevation burger, and if you want unique burgers there's Hubcap grill. If they simply lowered the price of the toppings and structured their service better, perhaps then I would give this place 5 stars. Atmosphere; 5/5 Service; 2/5 Price; 3/5 Food; 4/5 Uniqueness; 2/5 Total: 3.2/5

Great speciality burger place. The owner is very focused on customer satisfaction and the food is always good.

One of my favs. I originally started eating at The Counter when I lived in California and then continued when I moved to NY and they opened up in Times Square. Years later and now that I have moved to Houston the quality is still the same. Even though it has grown into a large chain, this is still one of the few chains that I would recommend as the quality has not diminished over the years. As for this one here in Houston - great service as well. Highly recommend.

When you are ready to splurge on a burger, this is the place to go. I love a good burger. I have had get success here. Good quality meats with so many options here. You will get the burger you always wanted. Their fries and onion rings are excellent, but a single order on the sides for two people is plenty. You actually could split the burger. They have an excellent beer selection on tap, and they offer a few wines as well. I really liked this place I thought their high quality ingredients made for a better burger, but be prepared their burger will set you back between 10 and 15 dollars if you add a side.

A really nice build-your-own burger joint! I want to try every option they have! The build your own grill cheese options looked amazing as well. My wife enjoyed her choices! This place never seems to be busy.
