Fast, efficient, yummy

3 ahead of me in line, took 2 minutes to get there 1 minute to order, 4 minutes to get my correct order. Hot, juicy, made to offer order. That the way it's supposed to be done.

Have heard it is sensational, but found it merely good to very good. Apple Pan in Westwood is my personal favorite. But this was satisfactory when in a hurry, as we were when we were about to attend a movie nearby.

When you want an excellent fast food hamburger, The Habit is THE place to go. The service is excellent (some of the friendliest employees anywhere), the food is always prepared as requested, and it is consistently hot and tasty. I have always and will always love In-N-Out but their choices are more limited. At The Habit there are other sandwich... More

Located in the same shopping center as the Pacific Winnetka 21 movie theatres, the Habit offers semi fast food at very reasonable prices. For instance, their double cheese burger with fries and a drink is only $7-ish, and their single w. fries & drink is $5-ish. They offer a nice variety of common burger themes, along with some non-beef alternatives... More

I really wanted to write a review for this Habit. I always get the veggie burger, which is excellent! What I like about coming here is that I see that it is a well-run place; clean, nice and the staff is always so friendly! Thumbs up for that!

Very good burgers (other foods are good too) but highlighted by an efficient and friendly staff. Next to In-n-Out it's the place for hamburgers.

The Habit offers great food at affordable prices. I usually order the garden salad which is nicely sized, while my husband orders the albacore sandwich. The french fries and onion rings are also delicious. Great place to come and have lunch

I tried lunch at "The Habit" for the first time. I ordered the Steak Sandwich, medium rare, with grilled onions, lettuce and tomato on a wheat bun and that is exactly what I received. A good steak sandwich are a fair price, cooked the way I wanted. Not bad. I will try The Habit again. Maybe for a burger next... More

The hamburgers taste like frozen meat. If this is fresh eating, they don't know what that means. The hamburger buns were fresh.

Stopped in twice for take out on a recent trip to California. Very reasonable prices for such fresh and tasty food. The fresh tuna burger is fantastic. Another traveler in our party ordered the garden salad. We were all impressed with the assortment and quantity of vegetables she received for the price. Would definitely eat there again next time we're... More
