I ate here twice on this quick business trip. On the way down, I had an excellent hamburger, just the way I like it. On the way back, I had an excellent Cobb Salad. As you can tell, I'm a very big fan of this place. Well worth seeking it out if you're in the airport, in between gates D32... More

Although the diner like sitting area was fairly full, I was able to get a small table rather quickly. The server took a few minutes but once I was able to order, everything sped up. The waiter got my drink rather quickly and took the order efficiently. Although the tables are on top of one another, I sensed I was... More

Really enjoyed the burger - it was great being able to 'build your own'. But found the service a bit slow.

Was pretty excited when I got to my gate a bit early for an afternoon flight and see The Counter is right there. This is one of my favorite burger places so sat down and had a bacon cheeseburger with some fries before having to hop on the plane. Great service and food was the same high quality of the... More

Their vegan burger is great and it is a nice break from a simple salad which is generally the option at airports. I had the veggie patty with the Texas toast. My wife had it in a salad instead of a bun and loved it. Excellent and quick service.

It's not always easy finding a place to eat in MIA, though things are getting better. One bright spot is The Counter. Hamburgers made as you wish, with lots of options. For airport food, it's really good.

We were excited to see The Counter while in the airport, as the stand-alone restaurants are a family favorite. This location didn't have quite the selection as others we've frequented, but there were still enough choices that we had trouble deciding! For those who've never eaten there, you fill out a checklist for your burger, where you choose the type... More

I stopped here for lunch while waiting for a change of planes in the Miami Airport. This restaurant makes a great change from the fast food chain restaurants that are everywhere in the airport. Service is friendly, personable and relatively quick, and the servings are generous - almost too much, in point of fact!. The food is There are several... More

We had a lot of trouble getting served in the beginning although that eventually got corrected. The burger was pretty good but at $15 and another dollar seventy five four gluten free a little pricey. Better than most airport food. I would try again.

I try to eat here whenever I am fling out of Miami. It's great for lunch or dinner. Tried it for breakfast once and did not think it was up to standard. You pick the type of burger (I had vegan), then the cheese you want (blue), then the toppings - up to 4 (grilled onions), the type of bread... More
