“Consistently enjoyable!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2012

We were window shopping in Slo and stopped in at Habit burger. They have a small but varied menu unlike any other burger based chain. Salads, fish, chicken, pastrami and of course burgers, fries, onion rings, sodas, shakes and more. The quality is great and the tastes are tantalizing. The price is a bit steep. We split a #2 combo which is a double habit burger with fries and drink. We swapped fries for their awesome onion rings (.50+) and added bacon and cheese (1.00+) so it was just over $9.00. They have tables and booths but we opted for the window bar seats and enjoyed our food while people watching since its on Higuera st (main walking/shopping street in SLO).
The staff is very friendly and helpful. They come across sincere vs pretentious as is often a job requirement.
In n Out was my favorite burger chain for years but now I prefer Habit Burger.
We will stop in again for sure.

“Fresh, hot, semi-local”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2012

Who goes to a burger place but doesn't order a burger? I do! My grilled pastrami and Swiss was absolutely delicious. The restaurant seemed new and clean, and I'm thrilled they're coming to the Bay Area.

“Better than In and out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

A fast food burger with quality, on the main street and buzzing this is a great place for a quick burger and having been introduced to In and Out this is far better! Friendly service good burger and fries and just over $10 who can argue. Certainly not the local youngsters who were filling the place.

“As Good As In N Out”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2012

Not better, but different and just as good as In N Out. That's high praise. There is more variety in the bergers and the onion rings are great. Service is quick and the people are very pleasant and try to please.

If you're in San Luis Obispo, this is the place for a burger.

“Yum!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Delicious food; good prices. Loved sitting outside in the gorgeous weather, watching all the folks walking around Downtown. Also nice to have outdoor seating since we had our pooch with us.
