My husband and I went there for dinner. He had hamburger and I had the steak hamburger. Oh, they were so delicious and very highly recommended to try. The staffs were very nice as well.

If a burger is more to you than simply fast food, The Habit is a destination for you. From the traditional fare of the cheeseburger to the more exotic in the form of a teriyaki burger topped with pineapple, a plethora of burger confections await you with fresh and thick slabs of onions, cheese and tomato in attendance. Moderately priced,... More

One of the best fast food burgers I have ever had. French fries are hot and delicious. The shakes are just the best. You can also get an ice cream cone for a dollar, what a deal!

Fast yummy food. Burgers are great. Salads are good here too. It's always busy but the wait is never too long.

Let's begin by saying that The Habit is not going to be habit forming, for what we had, was only one more on a long chain of similar items. Not a revolutionary eatery by a long shot. Yes, the investment is there, plenty of bells and whistles, and the prices way up there to reassure the patron that this is... More

We visit the Habit frequently. If you want a good burger at a great price, visit it! We also like their chicken sandwhich, and our daugbters like the grilled mahi mahi sandwhich and the tri tip sandwhich as well. Your orders are cooked while you wait, on a grill. It is clean and the prices are very good. It has... More

Husband and I on a Friday early evening date. He ordered what I usually get: The Santa Barbara sandwich, which he loved. I tried the Santa Barbara Salad which I didn't love very much. The reason was that it was plenty big enough with all the greens, however not a lot of the good "other" stuff. The salad was chopped,... More

I love this place! By far the best fast food burger out there! A variety of burgers and also great salads, fish and tri tip sandwiches, great onion rings, fries, sweet potato fries, shakes and lots of other items that are delish! The line is often out the door but it goes really fast. Nice staff too!

Awesome lunch spot. Burgers and French Fries or the onion rings area amazing. Better than 5 guys for sure. If you like a good burger this is for your. Only complaint is this location gets very crowded at the lunch hour and you may even get a table. Plan ahead because it's worth it.
