I tried The Habit for the first time only recently, (July, 2015). I really enjoyed the burger there and would go out of my way to go back if burgers were on the eats list.

We have eaten here a few times I love the Salads The BBQ Chicken Salad with Honey Mustard Dressing is my Favorite, the Burgers are awesome too I like the Mushroom Burger with Teri sauce on the side. Onion rings are perfect, get a side of Ranch for these. Our son likes the Strawberry, Cucumber lemonade.

The people are friendly and helpful. They need a bigger place wish they would look for one in French Valley as we don't have enough places to eat here. The good is great and the service is likewise.

A friend of mine said he went here for his birthday dinner. Kinda surprised me so I decided I would check it out. Still not sure if this was a great spot to celebrate his birthday but I loved the burger. We go all the time now!
