Pizzazz-less buns, flair-lacking toppings, and panache-free patties are a thing of the past at The Counter, where you build your own burger from the artisan bun up. With vegan and vegetarian options, locally sourced ingredients, and meats you can be confident aren't pumped full of hormones, The Counter can satisfy your quality-burger cravings. Today's Groupon delivers complete order freedom with $30 worth of premium burger-building action for only $15.
Get down to burger-erecting business in the pale blue and silver colors of The Counter's sleek, industrial decor. Beneath the glowing orbs of light that dangle from the ceiling, you will be furnished a detailed clipboard with a menu attached. Choose from more than 312,120 possible combinations of ingredients. Start with the protein and pick among vegetarian-raised beef, ground turkey burgers, grilled chicken, and veggie burgers made in-house from 11 different vegetables. Decorate your protein with an impressive array of ingredients, including Danish blue cheese, horseradish cheddar, grilled pineapple, honey-cured bacon, homemade guacamole, garlic aioli, and more. Select a foundation of an English muffin, a regular or honey-wheat bun, or a bowl sans bun.
If you're overwhelmed by choice, go with one of The Counter's signature burgers, such as the unique veggie (a veggie patty with mixed baby greens, roasted red peppers, sprouts, onion, and dijon balsamic dressing), or try the burger of the month (this month's features marinated and grilled jumbo shrimp topped with a pickled cucumber salad and fried rice noodles, lettuce, and onions, served on a hamburger bun with spicy Kung Pao sauce). Hand-spun shakes and sweet-potato fries round out the meal. If you're not drooling yet, check out the video on The Counter's website.

The Lesser-Known Counter
While The Counter is known primarily for being an amazing, premium DIY burger joint, it’s also the name of a lesser-known Batman villain named The Counter. Like Batman, The Counter has no superpowers, only the slightly-better-than-average ability to count slowly and correctly, which has perplexed Batman time and time again.
In their most famous meeting, The Counter craftily knocked over a jar filled with jellybeans, causing Batman and Robin to speculate how many jellybeans were on the floor. While they stood in silent thought, The Counter quickly tallied the jellybeans in three hours before eluding the dynamic duo yet again.
