Was at UCSB and stopped by with my brother who had been touting "The Habit". The meat was juicy but not at all greasy and everything on the burger (including the bun) was very fresh. I was told the lines are always long but on this day I had minutes to spare so it was fine.

You just can't beat The Habit. I've been a huge fan since I attended UCSB in the early 90's. Great burgers (try one on grilled sourdough - you'll thank me) and fries... and probably the best restaurant ranch on the planet. YUM!!

This is a really solid hamburger joint in Goleta. The double burger is very good, the shakes are really good, and the fries are just ordinary. I've also had the tri-tip sandwich and enjoyed it, but the burgers are best. This particular location has chili burgers which are my favorite. However, they put mustard on them, so if you don't...

Great prices, especially for Santa Barbara. The burgers were awesome, though at these prices, organic or excellent quality beef would be hard to use (I would have liked that option). Sweet potato fries were delicious. Burgers were made to order, not sitting around waiting for someone to pick them up.

Our whole family loves The Habit. Chicken sandwich is good in addition to their burgers. It's a big hit with the kids.

Great little burger place, with lots of history, local atmosphere and yummy food. Their kid's meal with chicken nuggets and fries is delicious!

This burger joint was close to my hotel, stopped in for dinner. They have a good selection of special burgers as well as other sandwiches, salads, etc. I had the teriyaki burger - burger cooked perfectly, bun nicely toasted, slice of pineapple and just the right amount of teriyaki flavor. Also had the sweet potato fries - a spicy ranch... More
