Houston Press' Description

Just because it's from California, don't discount this modern malt
shop and burger palace. The Counter is serving some of the best burgers in town on Washington Avenue,
and that's because you make the burger yourself, just to your liking.
A foundation of 100 percent Angus beef (although there are turkey and
veggie patties, too) plays host to more than 60 different available
toppings. Great beer and wine choices round out the menu here, and
save room for dessert: You won't want to miss the peanut butter shakes.
