i've long been a fan of the Counter in santa monica, always ordering the same burger:
whole wheat bun
sweet potato fries.
tried the same dishes at the counter in marina del rey.
the fries were just as good.
the burger and the bun, though, were under cooked
the cheese qualitiy was as good as ever, but since the burger wasn't as warm when the cheese went on, the cheese wasn't melted properly.
i'll try marina del rey one more time, but i suspect that i'll be continuing to drive to santa monica.
