Ahi Burger Yum

I had lunch at the Habit, which had a busling crowd. Always a good sign of good food. I wasn't sure I was going to find a place to sit, but they were turning tables pretty quick. Most people were having burgers, which looked great, but I went for the ahi burger. It was juicy, delicious, flavorful... read more

This place is not good. It has more options than McDonald's, say, with optional guacamole and sourdough bread, but the quality is poor. I had the veggie burger and I was grossed out. My husband, who is NOT picky, had a burger and said it "was not good." The prices are cheap, and maybe this would be good for families... More

We stopped in late in the afternoon and ordered a Santa Barbara Style Double Cheeseburger which had avocado and came on grilled sourdough bread (for only $5.90!). The burger was cooked perfectly and tasted really good. They offer combo meals adding fries and a drink, as well. My group also ordered a grilled cheese sandwich ($3.50) and sweet potato fries...

Had heard that this place had great burgers, but was disappointed! The burgers were subpar and the onion rings were just OK. Too bad!

Burger was good (I seldom eat red meat, but this is worth it) and although fairly modest in size, share a side of fries with one or two people to round it out nicely. You can also get a fountain drink (I like tea with some lemonade in it) and spend some fun time people-watching from the large windows facing... More

Popped in as it looked really busy and thought it must be good. On a whole the place is clean with good service. The chips were nice but the burger was a little disappointing. It's okay for something quick and cheap.

We love the one in Camarillo where we live, but this one was more of a sit-down restaurant, very nice atmosphere, service was great and friendly. Would definitely come back next time we're in town!

If you are looking for a fast sit-down meal in SLO that won't break the bank, the Habit is always a good bet. The location here is popular, but the lines go fast and there is plenty of seating. Always good food and service.

With all the great places to eat in SLO, this place just doesn't bring anything to the table. Burgers and fries are best at Eureka. McClintok's is good too. I'd rather eat at horrible service Firestone grill before I eat this bland boring "cheap" food.

My wife and I recently ate at The Habit. I had the bacon cheese burger with onion rings and my wife had the regular cheese burger with fries. The food was wonderful. And the staff is really friendly. I will definitely be going back when I am in town. Its a really cool place.
