In the kingdom of Burger restaurants this is the ruler

There are no end of upmarket burger chains now. This is the best. I really wish they operated in the UK. Lovely fresh salad, toasted edges on the buns and the best shakes you will find. Better than 5 guys, GBK, the Hard Rock etc

Great serving system with the portable order ready buzzer, ambience, burger quality for the price. Staff is getting better too. It's far better than In N Out Burgers.

First timing eating in this chain and I was delighted that I did. The grilled chicken sandwich was Delicious and very reasonably priced. Fries with the ranch sauce went down a treat! Defo be back eating here!

I am an east coast girl who dreams of In N Out burgers daily and it pains me when people say Shake Shake is better. In N Out is by bar the best and cheapest burger around!! With that being said, The Habit is a very close runner up and I'm happy to see that is rapidly popping up in... More

There are so many of these all over California but still, every location continuously provides awesome burgers at a good price. I tend to get the double char or the BBQ burger with the onion ring/fries half half. I never leave unhappy. The service is usually very fast and the taste reflects its food quality. Perfect on a nice day... More

Chicken burger, grilled onions in a lettuce wrap and fries... yum! When you want food fast, but you don't generally eat fast food. I love this place! They started in SB and have expanded for good reason. Ranked the #2 Burger place in the country, trailing behind In and Out, which I don't eat, I'm not a red meat person... More
