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

So the reviews are out and The Habit Burger Grill was rated higher than my So Cal favorite, In n Out. My family of four each went with the single burgers and we have to agree that they are very very good. The kids thought they were better than In n Out, I am on the fence. Either way, a... More

This is only Habit I have been to where there is no where to sit outside. It was so crowded that you had to take your food to go.

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.
