Looking for a "Counter Restaurant Style" burger or just a "damn good, decent sized, tasty burger" anywhere in mainly, the San Fernando Valley, or just L.A. County for that matter. L.A. is full of greasy "burger joints". What I'm looking for are places that stand out. Places that are worth recommending, bragging about.
I found about "The Counter" burger in Santa Monica here, from you chowhounds! Although there are folks that either like or hate "The Counter" I really like it!
Although I don't mind driving for good food, what I don't like is having to drive to Santa Monica whenever I need my "Counter" fix! So please help this "Burger Cravin' Man". If U post a reply with a location suggestion, all I ask is that U give me the name of the joint & the approximate cross streets. or a web link if the joint has one

My favorite high-end burger in town is the prime sirloin burger (with cheddar and sauteed mushrooms) on the lunch menu at Arnie Morton's. Perfectly seasoned and cooked, massively juicy and flavorful -- it's worth every penny of the $13 they charge. Comes with fries, but they will substitute sauteed spinach or other veggies if you like. Plus, white linen table cloths, attentive service, and a glass of good red if you want. Seriously delicious.

I agree re arnie mortons...this is a seriously thick and well chargrilled on the outside burger...real flavorful meat...i go for the blue cheese, but this one is tasty no matter what, with fresh tomato etc...you can sit in a table in the barroom too if you're feeling casual....a steal for 13 bucks given the size and quality
