“Fresh Burgers and Salads”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

The Habit has it dialed in - great, tasty burgers for the men and delicious salads for the ladies. My daughter is an In-n-Out addict but she really enjoyed her Habit burger. This is the original spot that has spawned numerous locations so you know you're getting quality food. Don't be deterred by the line or by the lack of seating. They move the order quickly and people don't linger too long so tables are always opening up. The parking is behind the restaurant, off the street. There is signage which seems to imply that you should not party there however dozens of The Habit customers use the lot. We followed along and the whole family was happy with their meals.

“Great burger joint”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

Better than In n Out or 5 Guys. Nothing fancy but fresh and good. Definitely not healthy but sometimes you just have to splurge. Great crunchy onion rings! I had to try it because of its rating and was not disappointed. Perfect for my 1st night in town after a long 8 hr drive. Within walking distance of the Hampton Inn.

“Best burger in all of Santa Barbara”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

Forget In 'n Out, THIS is where you will get a GREAT burger. Freshly cooked food, quick friendly service, and an outdoor patio. Parking is behind the building via a narrow driveway and we usually don't have any problem finding a place. Many people don't know that this is the only Habit where you can get a CHILI burger...it's not on the menu so you have to ask, but I encourage you to ask!

“Best fast food burger in SB!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

Love the turkey burger, the double charburger and Caesar salad. Price is right, too.
It's always busy and smells incredible!
