Despite the recent inventions of hamburger ice cream, hamburger blintzes, and hamburger hamburgers, the pure hamburger is still the tastiest unit of food. Experience an edible classic with today’s Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of custom-built gourmet burgers, vegan and vegetarian treats, and frosty handspun shakes at The Counter.

The Counter’s customizable concept for its beefy creations was crowned as one of 20 Hamburgers You Must Eat Before You Die by GQ. Choose from a clipboard-bound menu of 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. Adorn patties with edible accessories including horseradish cheddar, grilled pineapple, and succulent chandelier earrings before adding a final touch of English muffin, traditional burger bun, or a daringly bun-free bowl of greens. 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 with mixed baby greens, roasted red peppers, sprouts, onion, and dijon-balsamic dressing ($8.50), or try the tidally-locked burger of the month. Hand-spun shakes ($4.95) and sweet-potato fries ($4.50) round out the meal.

Get down to burger-erecting business in the pale blue and silver colors of The Counter's sleek, industrial décor. 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.


GQ puts The Counter in the company of the 20 burgers you must eat before you die. It was also reviewed by ChicagoFoodies.com. Nearly 400 Yelpers give it a 3.5-star average.

  • The Counter outpaces Mongolian grills at their own game by taking the do-it-yourself concept to new extremes, allowing you a vast array of choices for your burger's toppings, sauce and cheese...the menu offers a myriad of options, but is designed with clear categories to guide you in formulating a winning burger. – ChicagoFoodie.com
