nice for a quick stop going through ventura

Good food, reasonably priced. We were looking for a quick inexpensive stop as we drove by on our way to LA. This fit the bill perfectly. You order at the counter and get a pager; they buzz you when the order is up. Didn't have to wait very long at all.

Habit has fantastic burgers - we ate here for lunch and really enjoyed it. The mushroom cheese burger was very good, and the onion rings were great!.

There really isn't much to say, though much more positive than negative. 3 of us went for a late, quick dinner. We all had the burgers. I got some kind of double burger that was quite large & WAY above McDs, Burger King, In and Out, etc. in taste. I'd heartily recommend this place. Be aware, you order like you... More

While staying at the wonderful Clocktower Inn we had a nice dinner at The Habit in downtown Ventura. The generous portion of Grilled Albacore is always delicious and the Tri-Tip Steak is excellent too. Can be assured to get a good meal at a good price.

I start out by saying I am a California boy native to SoCal. I have spent many a night at In and Out. These guys beat them hands down. Better and bigger burgers. Excellent onion rings. Try the ahi sandwich as well. A small chain I have found them all very consistent. Fill yourself drinks. Very clean sitting room. Great... More
