Nice place to have lunch and snacks. Onion rings are great with Coke. Sandwiches are also good. Centrally located.

The Habit is a great hamburger joint and I’m rating it as that. It’s not comparable to a nice sit-down restaurant so don’t go expecting a maitre d. That being said, they’re simply the best. The burgers are great, fries are wonderful, shakes are rich, malts are even better, and they even have a good veggie burger and salads. They... More

No matter when you go, the burger will always come out like you expect it to: fresh, quick and tasty. It's definitely one of the top burgers in SB (#1 in it's price range). They consistently produce great burgers...and I consistently leave happy. What more can you ask for?

I have recently heard that the Habit was rated as providing the best burger in the nation...would believe it...I work near one in Santa Barbara and the entire staff thinks of getting their lunch at the Habit as a treat...The burgers are delicious and super yummy fries...They also have a rather varied menu so if you are not into beef,...

Good flavor (glazed onions) and fast service. Combo with fries/ onion rings and a shake! or go healthy with their chicken salad (although not a burger)

Habit is a lot of places now, but it started in Santa Barbara and it used to be great. It's a shadow of itself now -- still OK to good, but not a stand-out. I suppose that is the inevitable result of success and geographical expansion. Too bad. This place isn't bad, but first-timers will wonder where it got its... More

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
