This is a great place, wide variety of burgers and sandwiches and salads all at a decent price. Really nice too. Not your usual grease. Also have jalapeños and other peppers on the side to take for free. Cook to order so burgers are not sitting out, took 5 minutes to come. Great place! We will definitely be back.

Come here all the time! Service is always friendly, food is always fresh & never a long wait for it. No bells or whistles, just great! A perfect stop when at the beach or thrift shopping on main..

Two convenient locations. This one downtown has reasonably priced, excellent burgers with minimum wait. Much better than the fast food chains, much faster than a sit down restaurant. Good salads, nice people working there. You can't go wrong.

No matter what you order here, the food is delicious and so very fresh. The albacore salad was fresh and the fish just like fresh caught. The burgers are stupendous. The prices are great.

The Habit is the place for a great burger, fries, a cold drink, and friendly service. Stopped in for burger on our trip north, and were do impressed we planned to--and did--stop in on the way back. Highly recommended for a great meal served with a smile.

My daughter had a hamburger and fries which she found"awesome." I enjoyed a chicken club sandwich and their tempura green beans. They even had salads. I enjoyed my meal, but the green beans tasted a little of cornstarch. Our group had about 15 people, and everyone found something they were happy to very happy with.

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.
