This past weekend I went to “The Counter” in Roswell with a friend. Uniquely known for their build your own burger write-on menus, this place definitely caught my eye. My parents took me here when I was young but I needed to try it again to compare to the other burgers I’ve written about. Although the feature of customizing your own burger seems very cool, my friend and I decided to order one of their recommended combinations, called the “Red Eye”. It was topped with tillamook cheddar, red tomato, apple-wood smoked bacon, sunny side up egg, sweet sriracha sauce, all between two English muffins. If you’re thinking that sounds like too random of a combination to taste good, think again. This burger was very delicious. The patty was thick and juicy, the other toppings were done well, and the sweet sriracha sauce put it over the edge. Not the best burger I’ve ever had, but definitely an extremely solid option if you’re in the Alpharetta/Roswell area. My friend and I also tried their milkshakes, which we both agreed were not worth the large price tag of 6.5$ each.
