The place to get hamburgers

Another place I used to eat at weekly when I was attending training classes in Oxnard. Great hamburgers, french fries and milkshakes. Got my lunch to go and went to the beach.

This is a walk-in, order at the counter place that always is busy when I have been there. Menu is short and sweet, the epitome of fast-food. But, the food it better than most.

Visited in September 2015, was advised by my friends grandson that The Habit was the best place for burgers so while we were in Ventura we visited the one in E. Thompson Boulevard. Very clean and again excellent service. I had the Charburger which consisted of burger, mayonnaise, pickle, fresh tomato, lettuce and caramelised onions on a toasted bun, this... More

Good food on a par with IN-N-OUT pretty much same price, great if you are at the beach and need to send to send some one on a food run .Or staying at a hotel close by and want to grab something to eat on your balcony and enjoy the views.

This hamburger is without a doubt the worst I or my wife have ever eaten. It makes McDonald's. Berger King and Wendy' s the best food in the world. They cover a hamburger the size of a kid's meal with a ton of lettuce, tomato and other toppings to make it look line a BIG MAC but it is not... More

I've visited this restaurant several time over the past year. Great food. Reasonable prices. Only drawback is, it is very crowded at all times of the day. But they are good at getting you your food quickly despite the crowds.

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!.
