The Counter in Santa Monica is Absolutely GROSS

alabama310 | Apr 20, 2004 07:03 PM

Went to the Counter in Santa Monica and it was about the nastiest meal I have had in a long time. The buns are not substantial enough for the burgers - so it gets all soggy by the time they came to the table. The toppings had disproportionate levels of flavor: either too little (I had grilled onions, cheese and bacon) or overpowering flavor (my SO had the strongest blue cheese on earth (while I am a blue cheese fan – it just shouldn't be overpowering on meat – it should compliment). The burgers come in 1/3, 1/2 and 1 lb sizes. I remember the days when a quarter pounder was considered a big burger. Not anymore – but that is just a memory of the past when we didn't have to eat a pound of meat to feel satisfied. More importantly, the meat tasted as if it was grilled in a pan (like a home burger) and had absolutely no seasoning mixed in. Totally bland and w/o flavor.
