Casual place with great food, staff and service

The Habit is a burger joint. I don't eat beef, so I usually have the Sourdough Grilled Chicken Sandwich, with grilled onions and Teriyaki Sauce. It's like biting into a slice of heaven! I also love their sweet potato fries, The cafe' is always spotless, and I love that the kitchen is open and... read more

We love the Habit. Delicious, fresh food, friendly service and always busy. The green beans are the item on the menu, in my opinion.

I was shocked to read reviews saying the burgers are just OK. They are my absolute favorite! The fries are really great as well. But the best part of this place is the staff. They all look like they are happy to be working there, friendly in their greeting and just pleasant to have wait on you. I commend the... More

Awesome food!! The best burger I have ever eaten in SoCal. The fries are great! This location is always busy, it could really use more seating. But despite being so busy, the service is fast & friendly. Our order is always accurate. Located near SAMs Club & the 15 & 215 freeways.

One of the better fast food hamburger places around. Delicious, moist burgers with frim, tasty fries.. Quick service in spite of being a busy place each time you visit. Very clean and well appointed restaurant.

The Habit, originally from Santa Barbara, California, has brought a different face to the hamburger. The Santa Barbara, served with either fries or onion rings, the latter excellent with a reasonable batter thickness, is 1 or 2 hamburger patties on toasted sourdough bread, lettuce, tomato, pickles, avocado and cheese, plus a special sauce. The blend of all those indredients is... More

This is a great little burger join. Just when you thought, we don't need another burger place. Here comes The Habit. I'm glad they came because they make a great product. It's fresh off the grill and made to order. You have to try their freshly made strawberrie lemonade with cucumber slices. Wow!!! Absolutely delicious.

Went here with some friends for dinner. It is obviously popular with kids and families and Little League teams, etc... So, the noise level and crowd factor was huge. The food- mine a salad and basic made up- lettuce, tomato....burger was average at best. The prices were a bit over what the food was worth, but we were there and... More
