The Counter at The Shops at Dos Lagos in Corona was one of our favorite places to get a burger. After the owners of this franchise closed it in 2009 and re-opened the location as The Alibi Bar & Grill, we tried it a few times but it just wasn’t the same (The Alibi isn’t around anymore either).
Fortunately, The Counter has another location in Irvine. We don’t go there often, but it sometimes makes a good stop for lunch when we drive in to Orange County.
If you visited The Counter in Corona before it closed, then you know what this place is about. Angus beef burgers (fresh and natural: no hormones, no antibiotics), fresh toppings and many, many choices.
If you have not been to The Counter before, you are missing out on a hot, juicy, well-seasoned and perfectly-cooked burger.
If you aren’t into beef, you can get chicken, turkey or veggie burgers… and if you don’t do bread, you can get your burger in a bowl.
The Counter also has great sides, including fries, sweet potato fries and onion strings.
If you find yourself driving through Irvine craving a burger (who hasn’t?), The Counter is a good choice.
