  • The Bison burger medium-rare, jack cheese, sauteed mushrooms, onion, lettuce on a multi-grain bun!
  • If it's your first visit, ask a waiter or waitress to familiarize you with the menu, there's so many combinations that there's bound to be something interesting you wouldn't know about without asking!
  • You gotta try the sweet potato fries.
  • The food was good. Surprised by the number of options you can customize your burger with. It was busy when I went, so service lacked a little bit. However, overall a good experience.
  • Absolutely everything, from the beef to the fries, the milkshakes and the onion strings, everything is great.
  • There are FREE $5 gifts to The Counter Walnut Creek, courtesy of NFL 49ers Football player, Vernon Davis! Get them while they last!
  • The veggie burger is awesome. Especially with added avocado.
  • Special: Carne Asada! With basil pesto sauce and garlic aioli. Yummy!
  • 50/50 frys and killer dipping sauces. Love the burger choices. Big portions for sharing.
  • Park in the garage behind the restaurant
  • Slow. Waiters all standing around talking. Took forever for drinks. Horrible.
  • Consistently good burgers for a chain restaurant.
  • Like the bison!
  • Probably the best in and around the Bay Area, so darn good
  • Choice, choices, and more choices. Build the burger of your dreams and enjoy the tastiest burger around. Don't forget the sauce flight for .75 cents!!
