The Counter - Multiple Locations: $15 for $30 Worth of Burger Customization at The Counter

Jump to: Reviews | The Lesser-Known Counter

Despite the recent inventions of hamburger ice cream, hamburger blintzes, and hamburger hamburgers, the pure hamburger is still the most tasty unit of food. Today's Groupon gets you $30 worth of custom-built gourmet burgers, vegan and vegetarian feats, and cold, handspun shakes at The Counter, whose hamburgers were named one of 20 You Must Eat Before You Die by GQ, for $15. Customization is the key to burger bliss, and when the ingredients are treated with such love, admiration, and respect, each bite dances on your tongue like a young, beefy Fred Astaire.

Get down to burger-erecting business in the pale blue and silver colors of The Counter's sleek, industrial décor. 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. Custom-built burgers start at $8.50 for a third pound patty.

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, $8.50) or try the burger of the month (this month's Greek lamb burger is topped with roasted red pepper feta, fried pepperoncinis, and mixed baby greens with Tzatziki sauce). Hand-spun shakes ($4.95) and sweet potato fries ($4.50) round out the meal. If you're not drooling yet, check out the video on The Counter's website.

Reviews

GQ puts The Counter in the company of the 20 burgers you must eat before you die, 32 Yelpers give it 3.5 stars, and 5280 Denver’s Magazine and Denver Westword Dining sing its praise:

  • When the craving for a burger hits, we're willing to drive the 17.4 miles from our doorstep to The Counter in Lone Tree… there's no better way to spend gas money. – 5280 Denver’s Magazine
  • Weinstein and his franchisees are really selling dreams — carnivore dreams of limitless possibility, burger-junkie fever dreams of mad-scientist flavor combinations and endless experimentation. – Denver Westword Dining

The Lesser-Known Counter

While The Counter is known primarily for being an amazing, gourmet 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 blinding Robin with acid.
