Everything tasted excellent. Burgers were made fresh with plenty of toppings to choose from. Give 'em a try, you won't regret it. Perfect to get rid of your hangover (at least it worked for me) ...

The Habit is a fast food burger joint with sandwiches and salads on the menu. It is better than most mass produced franchise food burgers, but that is not saying much. The standard burger is small in circumference but reasonably tall with tomatoes, lettuce, et. al, all which seem to be fresh. Most recently I ordered my hamburger with grilled... More

Quick service, very casual and they have a way tasty burger. Indoors or patio for traffic and people watching. Great for a beach break cause it's so close to the surf-break or late night munchie.

Being vegetarian/vegan, I have had my share of dry, boring veggie burgers for sure. So, it's always nice to find something different. I do like veggie burgers, but I get tired of the same old thing all the time. Now, when I get in the mood for a veggie burger, the Habit stands at the top of my list for... More

Great local mini-chain has char-grilled burgers, and that amazing fresh ahi burger (really a piece of seared ahi, not a chopped up patty). Try either with added avocado! Sweet potato fries are excellent, crisp and soft at the same time with a light seasoned coating. Salads have the same fresh ingredients sans the bun. Coffee shake anyone? One nice thing... More

However, the food is amazing and the staff is so friendly you feel like you are having dinner at home with family. I have had Thai all over the world and I cannot say this enough, This is the best Thai anywhere. If you want to escape the hum drum world of fast food restaurants without having a personal economic... More

I love The Habit! This location in Ventura especially. I always get the same thing: a double char burger with bacon and guac....AMAZING! Then I drench their fries in hot sauce and dip the min ranch! I was surprised to see more restaurants popping up in Utah and other states. I recommend it to all of my friends and family... More
