Best fast food burger in California!

If you are willing to pay a little more than In and Out, get over to Habit! Burgers are made with the freshest ingredients and the onion rings are outstanding!

We were tired and it was almost 9pm. If you're a big burger fan and explorer looking for the best burger you ever had, this is not it. The seating area is also not that nice and only outside. the place is really oriented towards college kids. The food was okay though and they have many options to chose from.

Fantastic, filling burgers and sides at an extremely reasonable price. The two of us got teriyaki burgers (we love pineapple!) with extra fixings, plus fries and onion rings, for $20. The service is fast, and the outdoor seating is casual. We've been there twice, and will definitely visit again!

Fun, VERY casual California vibe with walk up window and outdoor seating if you can find it. Really good burgers - with enough variety to satisfy everyone. Excellent prices.

I'd fancy myself a burger aficionado and this place trumps them all. Double Teriyaki Char with half fries, half onion rings is my go-to order. A few pepperoncinis on the side and I'm in heaven.

Maybe the best burger I've ever tasted. Take it with everything. And the tempura green beans (yes, veggies at a burger joint!) are fantastic.

Was in town an wanted to try a burger place I can't get at home (Florida ). So we tried The Habit Burger. Huge slices of avacado! Oh my I was in heaven! I understand it is a chain, but was still very tasty and worth the trip in.

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
