The "Build Your Own Burger" idea behind the Counter, a fashionable new dive in Ocean Park, makes it a universe of possibilities centering around the hamburger and its matrix of 40-odd fixings, a restaurant where a thick, rare, organic-beef hamburger with herbed goat cheese, dried cranberries and roasted chiles seems not just the fancy of a celebrity used to flexing his whim of iron but almost an imperative. Ranch dressing on the side? Done! There is a wine-bar aspect to the place (very decent, if obscure, vintages from California), a selection of microbrews, and waitresses who do not, to put it mildly, look as if they are part of the regular hamburger-eating demographic.

The burgers are made with fresh meat and you can get an unlimited amount of a lot of different toppings. I’m basic – I do barbecue sauce, pineapple, tomato, mixed baby greens, and sprouts if I’m feeling healthy. You have a lot of options: turkey burger, veggie burger, bed of lettuce, wheat bun, 1/3 pound, 2/3 pound, quarter pound. The sweet potato fries are good. I’m not a big onion ring person, but they have great onion rings.
This place has the best burger in west L.A. Super casual but the wait staff is great and efficient and friendly. Go at off hours if you can... it gets really crowded and there are no reservations. The unique experience here is that you can add any topping you like. Gourmet cheeses, olives, every kind of dressing, bbq sauce, bacon, avocado, even peanut butter. Whatever you load on your burger -- it is delicious. The onion rings and yam fries are also fabulous!!
