“We LOVE this place!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Their burgers are similar if not better than In & Out...their salads, fries, onion rings, protein burgers and so much more are DELICIOUS! And they have THE BEST ranch dressing (which my whole family likes for dipping their fries and onion rings). They even have kids meals that are a great price (which makes being able to take your family out to eat nice) & my son loves that they come with a cute and yummy gummy "crabby patty" burger. One of my all time favorite things to order here, and after tasting theirs I won't go anywhere else for....drumroll please....their VANILLA malts with a little extra malt...AMAZING!!

“Great Burger, Reasonable Prices, Friendly Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

We tried The Habit for the first time based on the results of the rating it received in an online "Best Burger Survey". This resulted in two visits in one week. It was that good.

The burgers are excellent and fresh. The char broiled meat is high quality and cook perfectly. They have a very good choice of sides, including fried green beans, onion rings, and sweet potato fries. The onion rings were among the best I have ever had.
We also tried a pastrami sandwich which was also excellent. Another surprise was the high quality of their Asian dinner salad. It was fresh and delicious.

The service was fast, accurate, and friendly. On both visits the order content was triple checked to make sure the right food items were delivered. The atmosphere was clean, bright and pleasant.

This is my new go to SOCAL burger place.

“Good Veggie Burgers”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014 via mobile

I've been here several times for lunch with my friends. The veggie burgers and fish sandwiches are quite good! The staff are always friendly and seem to enjoy their jobs. The regular fries are always hot and delicious. The sweet potato fries were too sweet for our tastes, but some may enjoy them.

Lunch time gets quite crowded, but if you can get in by 11:40ish, you will experience friendly and efficient service.

“Tasty onion rings and fries”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

This is a good place to get a quick but tasty burger or grilled sandwich. I've never had a bad burger here! I usually get side order of their onion rings since they are so tasty.

“Great lunch location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2013

Ordering off the standard menu is excellent. You can upgrade to the sweet potato fries because they are tasty! A regular burger fries and a drink is a worthy meal.
Outdoor seating is available and quite nice if it isn't too hot nor cold. If you have a big group, you can slide enough tables together to accommodate everyone.
Pricing is reasonable too.
