Great Burger at Reasonable Prices

We were here with out three kids in our way North. The burgers were great and priced reasonably. Great outside seating in the middle of the bustle. 4 blocks to beach.

Been hearing a lot about the Habit burger. Not a "habit" I would wanna repeat.3 stars for an average burger. The burgers "look"great, but I am from the south and prefer to TASTE my food. (I like highly seasoned food.) My family and I travel a lot and have tried numerous places featured on "Diners, Drive Inns and Dives" and... More

Just in Santa Barbara for a quick visit and stumbled across The Habit on State Street. Ordered a Chicken Club Sandwich & Grilled Chicken Salad. Both were better than good. Would definite try their signature chargrilled hamburger next time.

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.

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

Spent close to $50 for burgers and fries for 6 people! A bit pricey! Service was fast, food was tasty.
