Its actually not as good as you would think. For One the fries aren't like Five Guys or Fosters. They are a frozen mess. The Burgers are alright, but I have had better. The price is what gets me though. 8.50 for a burger, I know I have heard it comes from California, but why bring Cali prices here, that is going to be the downfall of this place in GA. I am sorry, but maybe one time might be ok, but after that I am good how many times a week can you really go eat a burger especially with the economy the way it is. 8.50 is way out of my budget. Plus think, not only are you paying that for your burger, but 3.50 for fries, 2 something for a drink, thats 14 almost 15 a person. If I wanted to spend that much I would have went somewhere that had a real menu.

Save your money on this one and head to Fosters - much better burger, EXTREMELY better fries and with a drink is less than this place charges for just a mediocre burger.

I have to agree with the Tim and John on this place. I went there the other day and let me tell you like John said, Fosters is much better.$40 for 2 come on thats a rip off. What I have read about this place is it comes from Cali. So you have to know that the prices there will be high, but in GA come on at least take prices from a lower store or lower your prices some to make customers want to come back for seconds. The whole time while I was there I saw an older gentleman sitting at what I would say is the counter with servers sitting around him. Our server said he was one of the managers. Let me tell you about rude. We ordered out burger Medium and it came out Well. I asked very nicely to see if anything could be done about it and very rudely said he would cook another one, even second one wasn't cooked right. I paid the bill but the "manager" never even came back to table to check. Not good service.

I agree with these comments. I had a turkey burger and it just didn't taste right. The total bill for two people was over $30. Server was not good.
I'll take 5 guys any day! Great burgers! Great fries! Happy people behind the counter and the prices are a LOT nicer!
Sorry guys...this is GA. Not California. We like cheap, quick and friendly.
Fosters and 5 Guys Better

Wow I cant believe how much these posts compare to mine. I love burgers and I try to hit every place that serves burgers from McD's, Fosters, 5 Guys, Teds and so on. Someone told me about this place called The Counter. I looked at menu and thought wow this place might be great. So I drove out to the restaurant, parked my car there weren't many cars in parking lot so I walked right in expecting to get great service since it wasn't busy but what I got was totally different. I walked in the front door and was greeted to a non smiling unhappy hostess. Who laid the menu, or clipboard on the table and walked off. I waited about 5 or so min and a server came to my table. Didn't say name or anything just said What do you want to drink. I told him, got my drink and waited another 5 or so min while he was sitting at the bar talking to an older gentleman. Other servers joined around him so I was thinking he might be a manager. Never seen a manager sit while working, but maybe thats how they run things here. I finally put my order in and ordered it medium. Came out Well Done. I asked the server if he could see about getting another burger. He sighed and said this happens alot. He later brought another burger out and it was cooked better but not medium so I asked to speak to the manager. The older gentleman from the bar got up and came to talk to me. He said that he was sorry and walked off. I finished burger but honestly reading these other reviews that were good makes me wonder what they were eating because I had horrible service, horrible food and horrible management. Will not be going back for 2nds!

The place is pretty cool. You pay for the atmosphere and the choices. Lots of fun things to choose from straight through to desserts. Different class than 5 guys or Fosters. Much less grease than 5 Guys.
