For those who might find the vast array of options overwhelming, The Counter at Santana Row also has a wide selection of ready-made burger offerings that cater to a range of preferences, including vegan, vegetarian, and gluten-free options. A Mercury News article highlighted that the Arizona-based chain continues its focus on customization across all its numerous locations, including Mountain View, Cupertino, Fremont, and a Redwood City cloud kitchen.

While innovations in the burger world are making waves, sentiment among Yelpers reveals that there is still a deep affection for classic burgers from beloved brands like Shake Shack, or In-N-Out – the latter being one of the most searched fast-food chains on Yelp.
