dinner at the Counter in marina del rey

i've long been a fan of the Counter in santa monica, always ordering the same burger:

veggie burger
whole wheat bun
blue cheese
apricot sauce
roasted peppers

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.

  1. I just do not get the Counter, 4 times and only once was good/average. Westsidegal, have you been to 26 Beach, they have a new veggie patty that they make there, the have blue cheese, homemade wheat buns, not sure about the peppers or the apricots jam, but give it a try, i really feel they make a superior burgers.

        They have a few new burgers on the menu and yesterday when i stopped by the owner was working on some new burgers and tasting different blue cheeses, with some other guy. He said he has been having a lot of fun in the kitchen and playing.

          you said the magic words: blue cheese.

            i forgot the name, but they have this new burger with The King Kobe?, i ask for blue cheese instead of swiss and ask for a side of their bbq sauce, really REALLY GOOD!
