The Counter Restaurant Review

: A checklist on a clipboard stands in for a regular menu at this build-your-own burger place. Here’s where the fun begins: check off your choice of patty (beef, turkey, chicken, vegan or special market selection), size, toppings, sauce and bun to create your bespoke burger. Want soft ripened Brie or horseradish cheddar on your one-pound creation? What about dried cranberries or house-made guacamole? But even before you wrap your mouth around your juicy burger, start off with the fried dill pickle chips, onion rings or sweet potato fries. For vegetarians, there’s the “hobo pack,” an assortment of fresh vegetables topped with herbs, and a veggie burger with spicy sour cream sauce. The Counter, with its refreshing industrial décor, mod music, cold beer, cocktails and wines, also offers sandwiches, fountain drinks, ice cream shakes and desserts such as apple crumble, Key lime pie and brownies. Also located at 1104 Irvine Ave., Westcliff Plaza, Newport Beach, 949-642-0700.
