The Counter Custom Built Burgers is opening its third San Diego County location in the Gaslamp Quarter. The newest was scheduled to open Oct. 1 at 695 Sixth Ave., following prior debuts in Carlsbad and Carmel Valley.

A company statement said the newest full-service location will include a U-shaped bar and outdoor seating.

The Counter, with headquarters in Culver City, operates 36 restaurants in the U.S., Ireland and Saudi Arabia, with another soon to open in Kuwait. Customers order burgers and salads using clipboards posted at tables, choosing from an extensive list of toppings and ingredients.
