Quick service and tasty burgers - much better than at nearby Goleta's burger places, such as MacDonald's and In-n-out Burgers.

Stayed at the Bacara Resort and needed a break from resort food. First time I have tried the Habit though I have heard good things about it. My wife is the Hamburger Queen and she wasn't dissapointed. I did the Pastrami. It was very good. We did fries and rings and they were good too. The chocolate shake I had... More

Watch-out In&Out; Habit has what I consider to be California's best burger. The tempura stringbeans were also delicious.

Good salads, and the sweet potato fries and tempura string beans are great! Different Habits have different menus it seems; some have tri-tip sandwiches and some have steak sandwiches, etc. Go even if you don't like red meat, there is a grilled chicken sandwich and several salads.

Grew up with In & Out original burgers in El Monte Ca. But through the years it is now little burger and lots of everything else. Great fries! You can not beat the flavor of The Habit Burgers.

We have been going to "The Habit" in downtown Goleta since 1970 and have never had a bad burger, fries, shake, or anything else. The service is great and the food is very good. In a nation that holds it's burger lunches to high standards this place never disappoints. If you are in Goleta, ask for the Chili Cheese Burger.... More

One of the locals told us about this burger place. It was the original Habit Burger and it downtown Goleta. We ordered our burgers and boy were we surprised! Delicious! Worth the wait! Don't be deceived by the location! You will love it!

Been going to the Habit in West Covina, so I had to try the Original Habit in Goleta. Seating is all outdoors, unlike in W. Covina. Line to order at 6:30pm on a Monday was short. Person at counter must not be able to hear me very well through the screen, I had to repeat my order several times. He... More
